Whit Little Bites Quilt

October 1, 2014

I took a little blogging break.  No special reason.  Just busy like always!! :-)  I stay pretty active on Instagram if you ever feel you are missing out.  Also, after much peer pressure (lol) and feet dragging, you can now find me on Facebook.  Basically in 2 spots, as Linda Hrcka here and Linda Hrcka-The Quilted Pineapple page here.  I have also added all the social media icons to the right hand of my blog. :-) So between all those places, if you cannot find me here, you'll be able to track me down somewhere else.  Social Media is a full time job.

Lots to catch up on, but lets start with Another Year of Schnibbles hosted by Sherri and Sinta!!!  October's quilt is actually a Little Bite quilt made out of 2.5" mini charm packs called Candies from Moda.  Since I am still building my stash of mini quilts, I decided to make my version a mini version of the original.
Mine finished 13" square.  It makes a wonderful table topper too.  I will eventually, I think hang it though.
Whit is by Carrie Nelson for Miss Rosie's Quilt Co. available here.  I used Homestead Gatherings from Primitive Gatherings by Moda available from Primitive Gatherings. The background fabric is also a Primitive Gatherings fabric from a past collection, as well is the binding.
I could not be happier with how it turned out!!!  I love the colors and fabric.  Perfect for fall, but appropriate for all year.  Of course the pattern is genius like all Carrie's patterns are.  No, I'm not too biased. :-)

I had fun modeling my little Whit all over the house.

I quilted it on my Juki sewing machine.  A simple cross hatch using monofilament thread.  Batting is leftover Dream Orient from Quilter's Dream.  Love that stuff!!
Blocks are so tiny and cute!!!
 Before quilting.  Love that black background!!!
My curious kitty Louie had to get in on the fun.  He's usually not allowed in the room, especially when I'm taking photos, so he could not believe his good fortune!!!!  He was extremely fascinated with the camera in front of my face. :-)
 He hopped right on the quilt where I was trying to take photos!!
 He's like "Mom??  Is that you back there??  Why is the camera hiding you??"  Let me touch that thing!!"  ROFL!!!
Make you stop by Sherri and Sinta's for the parade of Whit quilts!!
