Happy Fall Y'all...Honeycomb Schnibbles

September 25, 2012

It is officially Fall.  Shockingly, I actually have all my fall decor out as well.  The girls and I finished decorating last weekend.  They live for it...Scott not so much.  His job is to bring all the boxes up from downstairs.  He was getting a little restless when I kept telling him there was more...and more...and more..

Finally, a little finish of my own.  Honeycomb Schnibbles by Carrie Nelson for Miss Rosie's Quilt Co.  You can purchase the pattern here.  This is an awesome pattern to feature the fabric.  I thought it would look cool in reproductions, but I think it looks great in any fabric.  I quilted this last winter.  I had the binding attached, just not hand sewn to the back yet.  Not sure what I was waiting for??  Probably just the time to sit and stitch.  I finally had some stitching time while the girls were at dance. 
 I pieced this last year and posted about it here.  I love decorating with quilts!!  I cannot tell you how happy it makes me to have some quilts to enjoy that are mine.  Not just "mine" until I have to send them home. :-)
I used a couple of charm packs of Comfort - Collections for a Cause by Moda.  The background is Primitive Muslin by Primitive Gatherings.  Big surprise there!! :-)  The fabric looks so nice in my house.  The colors are perfect!

The quilting is just a freehand allover swirl.  It is fast, easy and looks nice.  Like I have time to custom quilt anything of my own??  Some day maybe.  :-)  I am just happy to be able to slip something of my own on the machine between client quilts. Threads are So Fine, top and bobbin.  Batting is Dream Blend.  I love the look after it is washed and dried!

Halloween is so fun to decorate for!!  I have things sprinkled allover the house.  

I need to write some of my spells down.  Too bad I don't know any quilting spells. :-)
Of course, I have to have a crow or two. I layered a vintage jar with black beans and candy corn.  Another little idea stemmed from Pinterest.  I love me some Pinterest!  Most of the decorations are from my friend Daphne's shop here.  Her shop looks amazing right now.  I could spend a fortune on pumpkins alone!!

Thanks for stopping by!  Hopefully, I will have a few more posts this week. :-)

  5. Love it! I love the Fall too but we are still in blast furnace summer here. It better turn around soon because I am melting fast. I just love anything Primitive Gatherings. I am going to a big quilt show in Northern California and was so glad they weren't going to have a booth, I may have had to rob a bank if they did. LOL!

  10. Your quilt is beautiful and I just love the allover swirl. That is the next long arm pattern, I am going to try and master. I think the loops and double loops are mastered. I also love your fall decorations. I really need to try and get mine out soon! I wanted that done before October 1 and I am running out of time for that!
