I’m so excited to work on my first AYOS Schnibble project. I received my layer cake of Lario (a new 3 Sisters collection by Moda) on Thursday. Green Fairy has great online deals quite often (and if you come across them – they also do bids on eBay which can land you even better opportunities), and no shipping charge anymore (eBay purchases do have shipping)! You should see my collection of green pens (you get one free in your order). Can you say ‘office supply store’?
Here’s my progress on the first Schnibble of 2013 … Hat Trick by Carrie Nelson of Miss Rosie’s Quilt Company. For more information on joining AYOS (Another Year of Schnibbles) – just click on the blog button in the right side bar, and it will take you to one of the hostesses of the progam – Ms. Sinta of Pink Pincushion.
I’m having fun pairing up the color options and even doing a little ‘controlled scrappy’ approach to the 9 patch units. The instructions even suggest to go with the individual 2 inch square construction instead of strip piecing these blocks. I’m getting great practice at both perfecting my 1/4″ seam allowance and using my seam ripper. Then I discovered that ‘someone’ had slightly moved my needle position knob on the sewing machine. That could make a difference – right?

And a few complete 9 patches on the design wall, along with my 8 Blogger Girls BOM blocks:
Today, the family is getting ready to go out to the Houston Pet Expo this morning and peruse the exhibits and animals up for adoption. Never been before. I have my eye on two kittens that will be available for adoption soon, and they will be at the Expo today with their sweet rescue group, … Dori’s Darlings. It’s been over four years since my last furbaby passed away and I have missed the company of a quiet, cuddle partner. Let me emphasize quiet.
But – what’s this? Another project waiting it’s turn? … more to come…
Have a beautiful weekend! Thanks for stopping by!
Have fun with the schnibbles! Your new project looks interesting. Looking forward to seeing more!
Lots and lots of fun things going on in your sewing room! I love your Hat Trick!!!
I’m having trouble putting your blog on my sidebar for the AYOS group. Grrr.
Loved the peek of your Schnibbles!!! I showed a wee peek of mine today and look forward to seeing all the quilts on parade.
Your quilts are always so lovely! I wish I could quilt as well as you, but perhaps with years of practice… The parade was so much fun to watch, with all the different variations. Thanks for the comment!
