So since I missed the parade, I`m having my own. It's called, The Parade Of One. With only one quilt is it still a parade?
Here is the story of my Schnibble. First I chose my fabrics for the stars and did the prep work.
Then I sewed together a few star blocks and hung them on my mini-design wall.
I liked what I saw, so I pieced together the rest of the star blocks.
Next I tried out a few different fabrics for the setting triangles. I knew I wanted a cream fabric, just not sure which one.
I decided to go with this fabric since it seemed to have all the same shades of red and blue.
The next step was to decide whether to use a red or blue for the sashing, so I tried them both out.
I was loving my little Schnibble more and more! Next, I cut the strips for the checkerboard.
And then made a checkerboard parade on my ironing board.
The borders were coming together really well!
I did some more sewing and voila!
I think I'll hand quilt it using the Baptist Fan pattern, suggested to me by a friend who agrees that the circular pattern my camouflage any little piecing oopsies!
Hope you enjoyed my parade of one. I now need your assistance. Designer Carrie Nelson called this Schnibbles pattern, I.S.T.H. which means, Insert Snappy Title Here. I can't think of a snappy title. Can you help me name my quilt? Leave your suggestion in the comment box below or email me by March 15. If I choose your name for my quilt, I'll send you a little pincushion that may look something like this.
It is reversible...you choose which ever side you want to use!
I'm working on several projects including Clover and Violet's Garden Steps Stitch and Quiltalong . Do you remember meeting Shopper Mom in my earlier post called My Wooden Quilt? Well, I'm happy to say Shopper Mom has now become a Quilter Mom! She and I are meeting on a regular basis to make our versions of Garden Steps. I'll show some pictures next week.
Don't forget that this Saturday is Quilt Sue's Festive Mystery Christmas Quiltalong. Click on the button on the sidebar to learn more and on Saturday, visit guest host Joanna, at Needle, Thread, Happiness. I have my Christmas fabrics cut and ready to start sewing the mystery quilt.
As always, thanks for coming by! I am so grateful and appreciative that so many of you are popping by for a visit. It's a great day for quilting!
