The aftermath of doing a trunk show!
I’m trying to get Yogi to help put all the quilts away… it’s not working!!
I Really love the pattern chosen for this month’s “Schnibble”.
It’s not really a Schnibble by dear Carrie, but is actually a mini-quilt design from Fig Tree that uses one charm pack and a bit of yardage!
I used a charm pack of Sweet Tweet by Benartex. I also mixed up the leaves a bit and made one stem going in one direction and the other in the opposite direction, as I plan to use it as a table runner.
The pattern called for a light fabric for the outer border but I chose to use some leftover charm pack pieces for my border!
I also quilted some associated words in the narrow red inner border… dirt, seeds, water, sprouts, rain, fresh air, insects, sunshine, etc…
I love the cute cheater mini-hexie print I used for the backing and will probably use it reversed sometimes,
so I just signed a solid blue place near the middle on the back that would be covered with a centerpiece, rather than use a label in a corner.
I’m putting it away for now and will use it this spring!!
Soooo, Yogi is dyin’ to know what you are up to these days?
Not enough time, energy or money!!
My bee friends and I just got back from the Houston Quilt Festival!! HOLY COW!!
Amazing, overwhelming, innovative, inspirational energizing…just a few words that come to mind there!!
We were so thrilled to have seen the amazing red and white Ruby Jubilee quilt collection so dramatically hung!!
Over and over we remarked that there is something for everyone- so many different fabric and designs for all tastes!!
We had such a fun time!! It is exhilarating to be surrounded by others who love and understand your “bliss”!!
Now that we are back home- TIME TO SEW!
