The end of the month has quickly come. Just seems like we were ringing in the new year and now we are just a few days away from seeing if the groundhog predicts more winter. Our winter has been crazy here in NC. Record breaking warmth followed by ice storms then back to temps in 70s...tornado watches. It has been great to get back to some sewing and quilting following the holidays. New BOMs and sew alongs, going through WIPs, starting new ones...I love January. It always brings new projects! (And new excitement with old ones) This month Sinta and Sherri wanted us to show our favorite Schnibble. Boy, that is hard. First, I'll show my favorite one from last year, which was the first year I participated in the "parades". I had to choose Hubble as my favorite quilt.
The pattern that really caught my eye when I saw it was Paganini. I was doing the FQS mystery with the 12 days of Christmas line and thought I wanted to make a little quilt to coordinate with the larger one. So I ordered a couple of charm packs and the pattern, but never made the quilt. My blocks are done for the mystery quilt but have not been sewn together. I thought this would be a perfect time to make the schnibble quilt. (I really plan to finish the mystery quilt soon!). I will probably add a little more detail to the borders when I finish the other quilt. I haven't decided how I will finish it, but I want to use a consistent design on both.
