And this is what I ended up with. . .

Which, truthfully, isn't what I planned to make.  And it really isn't that crooked either.  So this is from the Tiny Town version of the Full House Schnibbles.


Started cutting last night-I'm hoping to make the Tiny Town ed of the Full House Schnibbles.  Cut up all these little pieces-and my index finger on my left hand!  At least I didn't bleed on the fabric.

Ready for quilting

Final border is on and the binding is made.  Now to quilt this one.  And the Sparkle Plenty.  And the 12 Days of Christmas.

Hmmm.  I have a lot of quilting to do!

12 Days of Christmas Quilt

Well, I could not help myself.  I kept seeing all of the 12 Days of Christmas quilts from the Temecula Quilt Shop blog .  These little quilts are just so cute.  

Originally I had planned to make one using Jo Morton's Crimson Bouquet line-golds, greens, reds so it would be a Christmas quilt.  But instead I decided to use browns and pinks for a more Valentine-y quilt.

Here is my little top.  I just finished it last night.  It's not quilted and it's a little larger than I thought it would be.  There's also some errors in it but who cares?

it's a top!

Quadrant 3

Finished quad 3 last night.  Only had to rip a couple of seams and I only stopped because I was tired and started making mistakes.  I really hope I can finish this top tonight!  I would love to have it quilted by Monday and finished so I can see it on the wall and see if it measures up to my  imagination.

quad 1 & 2

Halfway there!  I did rip out part of quad 1.  A couple of times actually as I kept sewing it the wrong way. I did much better following my layout on quad 2.  I only ripped out one seam that was really bugging me.

I'm pleased with how it is looking!  I really love this pattern.

Quadrant 1

Stitched this up on my Featherweight (!) last night.  I had to rip it out a couple times and darned if there isn't still a mistake in there!  When I put it away last night I said to myself -it's fine, you can live with it. 

 Well, no I can't.  See there are two places where identical squares are either adjacent or touching.  So tonight I rip it out again and hopefully the material can stand it one more time!

sparkle plenty

Am still working on the Sparkle Plenty quilt.  That's 144 squares up there.  But you can kind of see where I am going.


 It's a top!  My goal for my two week vacation was to get this to a top and here it is!
