State Fair Schnibbles Quilt Finish

Are you all sick of seeing this little quilt yet? I like to show it on this blog an awful lot as of late. I finally finished it, and had to post about it one last time. The quilt has been basted for two months just waiting for me to get to it. I could not decide how to quilt it at all, I was stumped.

Finally I was inspired by Red Pepper Quilts. She has been doing a lot of straight line quilting, and I love how it looks. Go check out her blog, wow! I decided to stitch ¼” from the seam on each side. I like the grid look of the quilting. I used white thread and tried to keep my lines straight. It wasn’t too bad to try out. Also, I used a walking foot, which made a world of difference.

The binding is a pink grunge fabric by Basic Grey, love that stuff.

I liked this straight line quilting so much I am currently doing the same thing on another quilt, this time a BIG one, I’m half way done now. It’s not too bad really, just slow… I don’t do slow well, but I can try to learn a little patience ;)

How could anyone get tired of this quilt? I love it! I can not wait to make this one myself, I am thinking maybe about doing it in Moda's bliss. We shall see. I am currently finishing up a Plan C in Punctuation, I love it, but I definitely learned some new hints to put into action with my next schinibbles. Beautiful Quilt!

I'm not tired of it, it is really so lovely. I think you chose the right quilting, it accents the design really well!
