New Baby Quilt

I'm getting a bit excited that the top is almost finished. I only have the outer border left to do.

Do you think the colors are too bright?


Wow! Great Service!

I'm going to be doing my daughter's nursery with lots of bright colors. She's chosen the "Fresh" line by Moda designed by Deb Strain. Not using all the fabrics, but she isn't finding out the sex of the baby so we wanted to go neutral, yet bright. She's due on November 1, so I have a bit of time, but not much.

I found nearly all the fabrics we wanted at The Old Country Store except the blue polka dot fabric. The fabrics cost less than we planned so we were very happy! I ordered them on Thursday and got them on Saturday!!! Great service!!! Very excited, but wanted to wait for that one other fabric before getting started. Will order again from them.

I found the blue polka dot at Chickadee Shops and ordered it on Thursday in hopes to get it by Saturday and work on it over the weekend. Well, it didn't come until today, somehow, they missed this order and were very sincere in their apology and sent me a full charm pack of the entire line of Fresh!!!! Wow!! …

Schnibbles - October

I'm going to get started on October's Schnibbles. Here's the one chosen - Cindy Lou Who. Not sure what fabrics I'll use, but I just might buy one of those Fit To Be Geese rulers.

Got my backing fabric today for my September Schnibbles.

Going to do my new grandchild's nursery bedding and I got the fabric on Saturday for that. I'll get a photo soon.

Schnibbles - Top With Borders

Okay, I'm getting closer to quilting this September Schnibbles. I've added the borders and it's not too bad. I'll pick up some fabric for a backing/binding tomorrow and try to get it quilted. I really enjoyed this one and I can't wait for October's!

Schnibbles - Top Finished - Sort of

Well, I didn't quite get September's Schnibbles finished in time, but I did get the top finished. I'll try to get the borders added and quilt it before I start next month's. I didn't really have enough time since I got such a late start, but I wanted to join in the group!

Here's the top:

I did it with Halloween fabrics because I've been trying to get a wall hanging for every holiday and I might even get this one finished for Halloween.

Thanks for checking it out!
