All done and then some . . . . . .


Yesterday, waiting for me on my front porch from the mailman, was my October Schnibbles project, Cindy Lou Who, that I named, One Star Two Star Red Star Blue Star.
It's all quilted and bound.


For those of you new to my blog, I chose to super size my Schnibbles.


There's a little bit of everything going on with the quilting, the red stars are quilted with a circular design and the blue stars are quilted in the ditch. The snowball blocks have a star design. The outer row has doodles.



Here's a closeup of the border design.

I'm sticking with my original plan of buying a white coverlet for my king size bed, and positioning this quilt in the middle of it. Probably during the month of July.

I got something else in the mail, a surprise!

This is the entryway of my house. Unless it's Christmas, my furniture surfaces are pretty much knick knack free.


I received this unbelievably beautiful doily in the from a fellow quilter, Dortha, who won one of my giveaways. I have nothing like it in my home and I just love it!


It looks perfect in my entryway, welcoming folks who stop by. I was really needing a little sumpin' sumpin' for that space.

Dortha, thank you so much for the doily, it was very thoughtful and deeply appreciated.
I'll treasure it always!

  13. The quilting on your super sized Schnibble is gorgeous as always. Do you give your longarmer free reign or do you tell her how you want it quilted? It is beautiful. Such a nice doily you received from your friend. Looks great on your furniture piece in the foyer.

  14. Love the super size Schnibble. Tell me more about it. Did you just make more blocks,or did you increase the size of the blocks? Or both? How big is the finished quilt?

  15. I loved it the first time we saw, and it's even better now. It's going to look great on your white duvet in July.

    The welcome doily is amazing. There's a lady here who makes those and I am amazed when I watch her. She crochets them and it's mind-boggling how she keeps everything straight. What a talent! Yours looks perfect in your entryway.
