Tuesday Update: Don't Forget to visit Linky Party Tuesdays at Quilting by the River.
Every morning, I hand quilt in my big cozy chair in the living room while the sun comes up. And every morning, I was telling myself that I should pick up a comfortable pillow for my quilting chair. So when the March Schnibble quilt, Bibelot, was announced, I put the pedal to the metal to craft myself a Schnibbles Quillow!
I adapted Carrie Nelson's Bibelot pattern just a tiny bit. Do you see the little "L" in the bottom row? I was jealous (giggle, giggle) that Thelma of Cupcakes and Daisies was able to rename her Schnibbles quilt "T stands for Thelma" so I customized my little Quillow with my own little "L". I quilted it with navy perle cotton and kept the stitches large-on purpose!
Have a peek at Thelma's T's here...the blocks are stunning! There will be a parade of Bibelot Schnibble quilts on the first of April at Sinta's Pink Pincushion and Sherri's A Quilting Life. That's also the day we find out the name of the April Schnibble pattern. See you at the parade.
I met a wonderful blog friend the other day! Sheila, who blogs at Sheila's Quilt World, is another Nova Scotian and over the last little while we have followed each other's blogs and become good blog friends! We have lots in common, including that passion for quilts and all things quilt-related that we quilt bloggers are known for! We only live about an hour away from each other so we decided to try to meet sometime. Yesterday we met in New Glasgow at Lucy's Fabric Shop, a wonderful little shop filled with fabrics, fat quarters, notions, kits, patterns, and lots of inspiration!
And how wonderful it was to meet Sheila! She is just such a sweet person, as I knew she would be. Sheila is on the right and I'm the other one! We had some great chats about quilts and blogs and fabrics and hobbies and travelling and on and on and on. She is so very talented and her blog always inspires me. Please visit her here.
After meeting Sheila, Woodworker Hubby and I went to see "The Hunger Games". Excellent movie and it kept us riveted in our seats the whole time. Definitely well worth seeing and I've already placed a hold on the second book of the series at the local library.
Hope the start of your week is a great one, and remember, it's always a great day for quilting!
