Schnibble Done!!

I absolutely LOVE this month’s Schnibble quilt – “Doc”.  I need to go back and read why Carrie named it that!!??

I’ve always wanted to make a Card Trick quilt.  It was a fun block to make!  I had to lay each block out next to me at the machine and sew it one part at a time, to make sure I didn’t mess it up!!

I used Moda’s “Puncuation” collection from American Jane.  I love the letters of the alphabet on the background fabric!!

I am retiring from teaching on June 26th after 34 years.  So, I’ve been collecting school themed fabric to make some quilts to commemorate my career!!

And this little quilt is a perfect start!!  I named it  “Flash Cards”!!  I hope you like it …Yogi does!!

  5. Hi,

    Well it's going to be very hot here tomorrow (Saturday)so we are staying indoors with the puppies.

    Your quilt (as always) is beautiful. And you are retiring - that's exciting.

    I took my first FMQ class last Friday, and I love it. I will be "practicing" the stitches that we learned over the holiday weekend.

    Hugs, Happy Memorial Day.
    Yogi is so precious. ♥

    Hugs

  28. Flash Cards! Great name. Don't you just love re-naming the patterns to suit your fabric choices? You are so smart to have it totally quilted; I barely made the deadline.
