Tagalong Schnibbles

*pretty double rainbow last week*
Happy Monday! How was your weekend? We had a really nice one. The weather was so gorgeous on Sunday, we went for a long bike ride with the kids. On Saturday I got a lot of sewing done, and had friends over for dinner. I am sad it is over.
So, my weekend plans were to get two quilts quilted right? Wrong. I got my Schnibbles Tagalong quilted and bound, and Pint Sized basted, that is it. I should not be so hard on myself, I did pretty good considering right?
Here is Tagalong. I used two Fig & Plum charm packs from my stash, and when I got to the borders I didn’t have enough strips to finish it up, so I went stash diving. I found lots of fabrics that worked great so I could finish this quilt top. Woo! It is stipple quilted with cream thread.
I had some Heather Bailey fabric yardage that I put on the back that had peach in it. I hardly have any peach colored fabrics in my stash. I was so happy with how this looks with the top, it’s so pretty. So, everything making up this quilt is from stash, you all should high five me, seriously.
Now I get to wonder what pattern we are making for May. And… can you believe it is mid-April? It is flying by. The weather is finally getting nicer here. For the first time I’ve had to take allergy medicine. The pollen is horrid right now! Even Mark and Jessie are taking it. I hope that it will clear up soon, I don’t like taking medicine.
You know, now that I am thinking about it, I bet I could have finished both quilts this weekend, but I started a new one (don’t ask, I was bored on Friday evening and was going through my stash). My friend Becky is making a quilt using the cutest pink and green fabrics. I started looking through what I have, and found lots (and lots) of pink and green, so I am copying haha! She is using a different pattern, but it’s all her fault :) This quilt didn’t even put a dent in the stash. It’s a baby quilt, cute yes? I think I could make a dozen of them and maybe use up my pink and green. We won’t talk about that though. Okay that is enough yammering for today, thanks for visiting!!!

I thought I had a busy weekend. I am tired just thinking about yours. Your quilt is absolutely beautiful and you should be AMAZED at all you accomplished this weekend!

Oh wow, Heather!! I just love your quilt. I was excited to see that you used Fig & Plum fabrics. After whining about it for the last few years, I finally decided to get back into quilting after a decade long hiatus. I am starting small, just ordered some charm packs--BBD & Fig Tree. :) Anyway, congrats on the finish, and can't wait to see what's coming up for May!

Oh Heather, I can't get enough of looking at your quilts. You're one of the most productive women I know when it comes to quilting. This new one is just wonderful. I'll have to find a source for these Schnibberl patterns here in Europe.
