I had a lot of fun making my first Schnibbles quilt by Miss Rosie's Quilt Co. SPOT. It won't be my last. I normally cut and sew, have to admit to not really paying attention to directions (don't you all do this too?), I make a few blocks cut some more make a few more blocks...till its done this time I decided to follow the instructions, WOW what a revelation! It was so easy to just make a few blocks when I had time, it was all precut. She lays these patterns out that once you cut them you can just sew, sew, sew!
I am happy I went with just 2 fabrics for this one, did you notice the background fabric, yup, dots! spots!
To border or not to border is the next decision. I am leaning towards no border and bind it in the red
Now lets see if I can do the T quilt for this month's, another year of Schnibbles pattern Bibelot .
Here is another quilt I started last week, its a reproduction of an antique quilt my friend owns. I am so lucky to have friends that lend me their antique quilts to study and reproduce.
This one just has a real folk arty feel to it and well its red and green what could be better? I traced the pattern and just changed the points to be a tad more rounded, I should have turned my block to be the same way as the antique, its a bit wider then longer.
some progress being made in the sewing room....
