Another Schnibble Quilt Finished

I have been trying to finish up some of the Schnibble quilts I pieced last year. This one is called Doc and features the Card Trick block.

All fabrics are from Tanya Whelan's Delilah collection.

I was pleased to discover I had enough of this pretty floral to use for the backing.

Along with spots I also love to use stripes for bindings.

I'm still working on 'secret sewing' so nothing else to share today. Someone told me in the supermarket this morning that it's only 58 days til Christmas ... eech!

Leap Year - Finished

Last year I joined in Another Year of Schnibbles and pieced this Leap Year quilt.

 I quilted it myself with lots of straight lines and am very pleased with how it turned out.

 The fabrics are a mix of Vintage Modern and Ruby by Bonnie and Camille.

 I love spotty bindings, especially in red ... 

and also have an addiction to pictures of rolled up quilts!

Hope everyone is having a fabulous weekend. I have been doing some 'secret sewing' for the rapidly approaching Christmas season.

End of the Trip

This week I have been doing some major de-cluttering ahead of a family garage sale next weekend. While sorting through mountains of 'stuff' I realised I have a couple of finished quilts that I haven't blogged about yet. So today I'm sharing my Scrappy Trip-Around-the-World quilt started in January this year after the pattern become so popular in 'blogland.'

I used lots of my favourite Bonnie and Camille fabrics ...

including Ruby, Maramalade and Vintage Modern.

It was quilted by Leanne who works at Esme's in Launceston.

The backing and binding both use delicious Ruby fabrics.

Now back to the sorting!
