Sept Schnibble Quilted :O)

WOOT! WOOT!! I'm so excited! I have quilted the Schnibble for September! I actually did the quilting, nothing more than diagonal lines, but nevertheless, i did it! My machine wouldn't cooperate, so i ran to my neighbors and used her machine (THANKS JUDY!) So, it's quilted, binding on, washed, dried and sitting on my table! NOW i'm ready for Christmas ... call me crazy! (but i see they are getting snow in Colorado :O) Now i need to get back to my funky fat quarters quilt that i started a week or so ago. Other than that, nothing too exciting is goin on here in Ohio. It's been on the warmer side the last few days and I'm ready for some cooler weather.

Have a Great Wednesday!

September Schnibble Completed

Hi! I hope everyone has had a wonderful week! It doesn't seem like its been a week since I posted, but it has. The weekend was great! We had a campfire with our neighbors on Saturday and spent the day making stew on the open fire and then we made some cornbread, apple cobbler and homemade ice cream. It was yummy! It was a great evening around the fire also because it got pretty cool!

And since my last post I've been working on my September Schnibble pattern called Winter White which contains flying geese ... and for the record, i don't like flying geese! This is the first time I have made them and they looked like they were flying all over the place! Next time I have to make them I think I will be ordering the ruler that Nicole talked about in her post! So below is a picture of my September Schnibble done in Frosted Memories by Moda. The top is complete and I am going to attempt to do the quilting ... which I have never done before, so it may be nothing more that Xs. Oh, and be sure to stop by Green Fairy Quilts and check out her awesome give-away!

Hope everyone has a great week!

Schnibbles Started

Hello! Hope everyone had a great weekend! Tonight i started sewing my Schnibbles! Well, i made my first ever Flying Geese ... i got a whole two of them made and my sewing machine decided to act up ... after messing with it for a bit (15 minutes because that is all the longer i have patience to deal with it), i left the room and now hubby is messing with it. I think he knows i would throw it to the curb in a heartbeat and go buy a Janome or a Bernina or a Pfaff ... oh that just sounds so fun! In the meantime, let's hope he gets mine fixed so i'm able to complete my Schnibble this month :O)

So anyway, below is the material i am doing my September Schnibble in ... it is called Frosted Memories by Moda. I love the colors but just wish there was more red in the charm packs. I think next time maybe i'll buy a layer cake and have more variety.

Funky Fat Quarters

Hello! Every night for the last week i've been saying ... i need to update my blog ... and every night i have nothing to blog about! So ... what have i been up to for the last week? well you guessed it ... nothing! I ordered the pattern and fabrics for my Schnibbles and that all came, but i just am not feeling the fabric, so tomorrow while hubby is working i'm going to run to a new quilt shop in Wayne, Ohio (in his truck) and see what they have ... possibly buy some different fabric for this months Schnibbles.

So since hubby is working all weekend and my car is in the shop, i dug out some fat quarters that i named "funky fat quarters" when i purchased them. My quilt shop was closing and they were a buck each so i bought them. So i'm in the process of cutting them up and hope to throw a lap size quilt together this weekend so i have something to do.

Here's a pic of the fabrics and you'll see why they're named "funky fat quarters"

Hope ya all have a wonderful weekend :O)
