I woke up this morning to the sun shining! It is amazing how a new day brings the opportunity for endless possibilities! I love that! Can you hear the skip in my step? 🙂 Thought I would share some fun little quilts with you all. They kind of have a Valentine-ish feel to them.
First up is a table runner called Hour by Hour from the book The Blue and the Gray by Mary Etherington and Connie Tesene. I am quite positive that I would love to make every project in that book! I changed my version ever so slightly from the one in the book. Last summer the girls earned a dance scholarship to attend a dance camp in Chicago, so I used the time while they were at camp to visit some local quilt shops there. I purchased a kit for this from Pieceful Gathering Quilt shop here. If you are ever in their neighborhood, it is an awesome shop!!!!
The snow was beautiful this morning. I cannot believe I just said that. lol The snow looked like diamonds sparkling in the sun.
I opted to add the two end borders from fabric from my stash. I could not be happier with how it turned out. I am trying to add more blue and gray around here. I will keep this out through the Jan/Feb months. The fabrics definitely have a romantic feel to them.
Next up, I finally quilted my other version of Paganini Schnibbles!!! Yay! It was on loan at my LQS for a few years.
Again, perfect for Jan/Feb decorating. This top was one of the first posts on my blog here. Paganini is one of my all time favorite Schnibbles!!!! One of my all time favorite quilts period by genius aka Carrie Nelson. The pattern is available here.
I used the scallop edge as the spine for the feathered border. 🙂
