Year of Schnibbles AND Christmas Through the Year Finishes!

Here's two finished Schnibbles Full House quilts. I couldn't stop making the houses and now have a quilt to gift as well as one for me! I was able to not only participate in Year of Schnibbles but have finishes for the Christmas Through The Year as well.

I absolutely love the texture that the quilting added to these tops. They were quilted with an edge-to-edge design called, "Cotton Seed."


Poo...photo turned! This is a cute little number from Little Stitches and the ornament is wool. So fun, fast and easy to make for holiday gift giving! (another one for the Christmas Through the Year)


Lastly, I whipped up this table runner! It is one of many FREE patterns you can find at Quilt Bug. It is another very fast project and possibilities endless for the center block and small diagonal blocks. I simple chose a quilt motif and stitched-in-the-ditch.

Wow! Way to sew! We have been recovering from last weeks storms and just got cable back last night. I didn't dare sew because power was blinking in and out~ now I feel so behind! Yikes! I love all your projects!

Your Schnibbles quilts are wonderful, and very inspirational. After I saw your post, I finally got out my patterns and started working on mine this afternoon. I had bought the pattern before Christmas when I saw it on Carrie's blog, but hadn't had a chance to start on it, but I have now, thanks to you!These little houses are fun to make! I wonder if I'll be able to stop with one quilt.
