Today was the deadline for submitting your finished "Full House" Schnibbles quilt to the Year of Schnibbles girls. I am a bit late. Just a little. Not that the quilt is done, but I did get the top put together today. Without borders. All I can say is, Hey, I might be really done by Valentine's Day, which is my personal goal for this.
Do you participate in the Year of Schnibbles? I had a bit of trouble with the roof pieces. I wonder if anyone else did?
version is made with Moda's Chemistry fabric line charm packs. I bought
some coordinating Kona solids (the dark raisin-y color and the light
peachy pink) to add to the selection, since the Chemistry charm packs
consist of 4 or more of each print. I was disappointed about that, but
what can you do? I bought online to get a deal, because the prices at
quilt shops - where I can look in person at the contents - always make
me put back what I have inspected.
I'd like to guarantee
that I am going to do every Schnibble for the whole year along with the
group, but next up is I.S.T.H. and I don't have that one. I plan to
substitute a different Schnibble from one of Carrie Nelson's books
instead. Who's with me?
Now that I am home full time with Tyler, I just can't accomplish everything I plan to do each day. Almost 3 year old boys are VERY busy, and they get real squirrely if they don't get outside to play. Nap time comes around and I have to prioritize what gets done. Lucky for you I chose quilt top finishing over clean floors today! As Scarlett said, "I'll think about that tomorrow."
Stay tuned for a blog post about what these Schnibble quilts are going to be used for!
