String Bean Challenge take 2

Just had to make a second link for my quilt.   Enjoy the string quilts

Happy Stitches!

Pat Sloan String Bean Challenge

Pat Sloan offered a Challenge to her followers on Facebook, it was called the String Bean Challenge.  The top one is Quilting Moms quilt - she used Pat Sloans Batiks.  I looks so tropical  -- Love it!

Here is mine -- I used a floral designed by Pat  -- still need to put on my borders, but I love this -- want to get this done for this summer. 

Thanks for stopping by!

Quilt Show

Happy Sunday!

Yesterday my group went to a quilt show and it was very  inspiring!  Here are just a few of my favorite quilts.  The red really pops on this one.  And I would have never thought to put red in a a pink and gray quilt.

I just love 30's quilts.

This one is really  neat a 30's of course!  It is a 9 patch in a round setting.  Very interesting.  

 This one just made me smile -- the cow is from many different fabrics, really fun!

This was just one block -- and it is 3 Dimensional -- I just thought it was very sweet.

The 2 quilts above are Quilting Mom and Me  (she is in the green me in the pink)  We challenged ourselves last month to make the Pat Sloan String Bean Quilt -- Mine is the first one and I still need a border.  Hers is done,  Don't you just love to see the same quilt in different fabric, both are nice and so different.

Poochie has been taking alot of selfies lately so here is her latest.  I thought you would enjoy to see her!!      

Of course Patches has to get involved too so here is picture of my girls! 

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Stitches!

April 1st Schnibble Parade

Good Morning!

Spring has finally arrived in Northern Illinois.   The weather yesterday was wonderful, this past weekend was cold and gloomy winters last blast I  think.   I did get several things done in March   I use my scraps from the receiving blanket, bib and burp cloth sets and made this flannel baby quilt.

I had an order for a pink and grey with some yellow baby quilt and this was a new pattern I picked up.  Really like the way it turned out.  Have a second one almost done.  It does together very quick and I love the big squares for the focus fabric.

 Picked up a jelly roll super cheap on sale and made this quick modern type table runner - I have lots more of the jelly roll so I will make several more runners for upcoming shows.

And drumroll please..... Here is my Schnibles of the month --- it was the Sampler Pattern - I had great plans to get all 13 blocks done, but I only got 5 done -- lots more in the progress so I will have have to see project I will make with the extra pieces    I love the Hexie shape I have a perfect table for this so I will quilt and bind this week.

Dear Hubby had his knee surgery and is doing so much better,  Poochie was taken into the vet on an emergency type situation - ended up to be a very simple fix she had gotten one of her food kibble stuck in her gum vet got it out and she is now on soft food -- then 5 days after that event she was playing with the neighbor dog and then that dog decided to attack her and luckily we got them seperated in the nick of time -  both she and I were shook up but she was fine  - not sure where the fight came from they were great  buddies last summer and the few times they saw each other this winter.   
Patches is in agility training and doing very well.

Well that is all for today.  See me waving...Thanks for stopping by

Happy Stitches!
