Getting back to business

Posted by Strlady at 8:09 PM
It had been raining all week.


Not that I'm complaining since it means that I didn't have to water the sapling we planted in spring.


It's been quite hot this summer and this rain definitely came at a good time. Yesterday we finally got some sunshine which allowed me to take pics of some of my recent finishes.

First up is Sunday Best.


I sent Mary over at Quilt Hollow a few Schnibbles to quilt and I must say, they turned out wonderful! I love these little quilts!


Isn't the quilting just exquisite?

Winter White is up next.


This was the first Schnibble I made, back in September of last year.


I had bought the backing last year but found myself short so I had to use the fabric for the binding to piece it a bit larger.


Swirls were quilted on this piece and made it adorable!

Tagalong was also quilted but I failed to take a picture before it headed off to it's new home at the Pumpkin Patch. I'm hoping that some pictures might be forthcoming after it settles into it's new home.

I also finished Short Story!!!


It is quite large at approx 73".


I love that I chose different background prints since I think it gives the quilt some depth.
I'm waiting for the yardage for the fabric line (Collection for a Cause: Hope by Moda) comes out so I can pick up the backing and send this one out to be quilted. I can't wait to get this one quilted and bound since I'm feeling like this one just might be mine. :)

I'll be back with more but for now, Have a great week!

Sandy, beautiful Schnibbles quilts. I am also a Schnibbles fan and have made 2 so far. I am looking forward to completing many more.
