A bit of quiltie goodness :)

So for my Friday night sewing I ended up making theses blocks
from "another Bite of Schnibbles".
 I decided to make the "Tag-along" quilt.
On Saturday morning I worked on piecing the quilt top
and adding the sashing and outer borders.
Sometimes I buy fabric and it lingers in my home
for months or years.
But the minute I had my hands on "Give Thanks"
I just had to start quilting!
I love every print in the stack
except the Indian corn........
what were they thinking?
Oh well.....
I had to use it because with Schnibbles patterns
you pretty much use every tiny piece of 2 charm packs
to make one small quilt.
I  ended up going through my stash
to find a co-ordinating fabric because I didn't 
fully understand the cutting directions
and mis-cut some charms.
Luckily for me I had that fun brown with
polka dots that blended in well :)

I'm not saying that the directions were difficult to understand,
but maybe the glass of wine I drank while cutting played a small part?

After I had the quilt top assembled,
I decided that I didn't like the Oyster Kona I used
for the sashing and now I'm going to replace it with 
a sunflower yellow. 
It's actually a deeper yellow than it looks
in the photo.
I'm also planning on embroidering some
of the things I'm thankful for in the sashing.
We'll see how long it takes me to actually 
get this thing done!


  1. I love you quilt top and I love that t-shirt. lol. Just need to become a drinker so I can wear it. lol

  2. Oooooh girl, I do love the colors in this. :)

  3. those colors are fantatic together! makes me wantta make a Fall quilt lol!

  4. Great job on the quilt! You're always so fast! I agree with you on the yellow sashing. It gives it more warmth. I can't wait to see this all together with the embroidery and all! :)

  5. I think the sunflower looks wonderful with the quilt! It looks great!

  6. The quilt is the total and complete BOMB :-)! The colors makes me want to smell warm apple cider and pumpkin pie with real whipped cream (oh yummie!). Your mistakes are even creative :-)!

    I love the T-shirt. If you had been drinking beer you would have been OK ;-).

    I think that we should have a quilting session (hint, hint) :-).
