Quilting

You may or may not know that I bought myself a new sewing machine on July 4, 2009 with the plan to start trying to sew clothes for Kirsten as she is so tall and skinny.  Well that hasn’t happened yet, but I have got into quilting instead.  I have joined a group both at my local quilting shop, The Olde World Quilt Shoppe (http://www.theoldeworldquiltshoppe.com/owq/?CFID=3901389&CFTOKEN=84347671) and now a second one online called “Year of Schnibbles” that a lovely lady called Sherri is hosting through her blog (http://www.aquiltinglife.blogspot.com/).  The whole basis of the “Year of Schnibbles” is that on the first of the month Sherri will announce on her blog what the next month’s project will be in the way of a “Schnibbles” quilt.  “Schnibbles” quilts have been designed by Carrie Nelson of Miss Rosie’s Quilt Company (http://www.missrosiesquiltco.com/).  I am loving the challenges being thrown at me by joining a quilt club and trying things with fabrics that I definitely would not have tried out on my own.  I have quite a bit of catching up to do with the Year of Schnibbles but here are 2 of my quilts.
