Cindy Lou Who Schnibble Quilt

I got my Cindy Lou Who Schnibbles quilt top done this month and here is a photo of it.
Okay, not the best photography I admit. It's Halloween and the quality of my photo was not as high on the list as carving pumpkins.

I decided to join this little club for a couple of reasons.
1. I really like almost all of Carrie Nelson's Schnibbles patterns
2. I own MANY of them already and have never made them yet
3. I thought it might encourage me to get some of these little projects done this year. I spend so much time sewing and quilting projects for my patterns that I forget to do things just for fun sometimes too.

So that is really 3 reasons, but they are all good ones I think!

I used a Valentine group from Moda, called Candy Kisses. I got this last year and loved it, but never used it.

Signs-ups for the group "A year of Schnibble's" are closed, but I hope you enjoy seeing what I make each month for it, and check out the button on my sidebar on the 1st of each month to see what everyone else makes too! It's very inspiring!

P.S. I didn't get the one done for September because I could not get find the Winter White pattern in stock until late in the month. I may still try and do this one, just so I can get all 12 done! Stay tuned!

Quilt Bloggers Festival

For all of you bloggers who love to quilt, this is the thing for you!
my pal Amy aka ParkCityGirl has created this festival including organizing the sponsors who are giving away goodies! There are no gimmicks, she just wants to get all of us quilty girls and guys together enjoying each others inspiring works!.

The fun begins on October 9th--same day as Market classes begin in Houston. That's where I will be, but have fun until I get back! All you have to do is post a photo of a quilt you have made or are working on and it's story, if there is one. There will be giveaways galore, or so I am told--so it should be fun. She had one in the spring too and it was wildly popular.
