On Sunday I remembered I had a bunch of little blocks done for a Schnibble made with Mary Engelbreit Christmas fabric and thought it would be a nice fresh new decoration for this season. I got them out, squared them up and laid them out on my table to sew them together - and then Big Dude came to keep me company.
Ahem - Big Dude, your big rump is obscuring my layout. Now we are blessed to live in a very spacious home - there are 4 bedrooms, 3 large couches and more than a half a dozen cushy chairs where one could park one's butt and take a snooze, but I have obviously misjudged the comfort of a formica table with quilt blocks on it! By the time I liberated parts of several rows I wasn't sure exactly how I had laid out the blocks but decided to just go for it.
So this is my State Fair Schnibble done in the ME fabric line from a couple of years ago called The Caroler. I ended up doing 3/4" finished sashing and using cornerstones since my points weren't coming together well. The borders aren't attached yet. I'll get to it tomorrow. I'll be doing some very simple quilting on this and then I plan to drape it over the end of a bookcase and arrange a little Christmas vignette -oh aren't I the stylish one? LOL
I did get all the pieces cut out for the blocks for the big scale floral blocks I showed on Friday - it took longer than I thought and I realized that while I have a lot of yellow stash most of my pieces are small and I will be needing some larger chunks to do the setting triangle for this quilt. Oh no! It may not be free after all - I may have to purchase some more yellows - horrors! Oh well, I'm sure I'll get over it quickly.
Have a good week - yesterday it rained, today it is raining and tomorrow it is suppose to rain too -- a very soggy start to the week, but a good excuse to stay inside and sew!
