I made my first Schnibbles quilt, Lincoln, for the Another Year of Schnibbles July challenge. I used an old Moda charm pack, Portobello Market. All fabric was from my stash!
I just quilted it cross hatch on my Pfaff. It was so small, I did not see the point of taking the time to put it on my mom's long arm. I am so pleased with it and can't wait to find out what the Schnibbles design is for August. I am completely hooked.
I recently splurged on a couple of tools that are amazing! The first is the Olfa Splash cutter--all of the splendid reviews are true. It is lighter, has a more comfortable handle, and goes through the fabric like a hot knife through butter. I used a 40% off coupon at Joanns and might even buy a second one next week when our local Joanns opens and they already sent me a 50% of coupon. I also invested in the Clover Wonder Clips. They were only $13 on Amazon instead of the $36 everywhere else for the 50 pack. I used them for the first time last night when binding my Schnibbles Lincoln quilt.
Now, I am on to the new BOM over at elephantz.com. I have lots of old Robyn Pandolph scraps that I plan to use for this adorable house quilt. The patterns are free each month and it only finishes 37 inches square, so join in! Enjoy the weekend!
