We’ve had some severe weather in our area over the weekend. I heard on the news today as many as three tornadoes were in the area Sunday. Our tornado sirens were buzzing in our town to take shelter Sunday, but fortunately for us, we did not experience any tornadoes. Many homes, schools and businesses are without power in nearby towns. I feel for them. At least the weather isn’t freezing, although very humid. Last week my furnace kicked on a few times in the morning, now we have the central air on. Go figure??? We did lose the Internet until Tuesday, so not much blogging for me. I was able to get some sewing in, though!
Yes, I am officially a month behind on keeping up with the monthly Le Petite projects!! I took some time over the holiday weekend to work on my own projects. Brochante was one of those projects. I really wanted to finish this because I just love Schnibbles. Carrie Nelson always does such a phenomenal job designing these quilts! Plus, I couldn’t stand the thought of adding to my UFO pile. Not only did I finish piecing it, but I got it quilted too!!! I’m Happy Dancing all over my house as your reading this. If you listen closely enough you may just hear me!! 🙂
It’s so beautiful outside that I thought I would take some photos in my flower garden.
I LOVE how it turned out!!!! I used Wild Rose charm squares by Blackbird Designs. I’ve had these charm packs for a while now. I purchased them for a different Schnibbles pattern, but then changed my mind. I wanted to wait for the perfect pattern. I’m so glad I did!! The background fabric is Primitive Muslins, Tallow by Primitive Gatherings for Moda. Have you tried Primitive Gatherings line of Primitive Muslins yet?? They are awesome!!! They are so soft, unlike many aged muslins that can feel a little stiff. They come in 5 different shades. I used the lightest of the 5.
I had quite the little photo shoot!!
I chose to quilt my favorite…feathers. A nice allover meandering feather I think was a great choice for this project. I used another favorite…wool for the batting. I love how wonderful wool makes the quilting look! I had two remnant pieces of wool leftover from other projects that I just put together for this. Worked out great!!
I love the back too!
I have the binding ready to go on. Hopefully I’ll get that sewn on tonight while the girls are at dance tonight!
