Schnibbles Leap Year

 Here's my Schnibbles Leap Year just in the nick of time!  I framed my blocks with green and used all civil war fabrics.  The photo color isn't true at all.  It looks brighter and whiter than it really is.  It's going to be a great little top once quilted and washed to crinkled perfection.  I was thinking how adorable this would look to decorate for Fall in a basket on front porch with pumpkins and such.
Speaking of pumpkins, this is a peek of Karen's Great Pumpkin BOM quilt top that I've been quilting.  I'm nearly finished and plan to get it back in the mail to her this upcoming week.

How big is that beautiful Leap Year quilt? I love it. I wasn't going to read any blogs just now, but when I saw the thumbnail of this quilt, I had to check it out!
Oh, your swirly, curly, viney quilting is the perfect enhancement for that pumpkin quilt!

Nice! I like your framed blocks, good idea. I think you're right this will be a great Fall quilt, maybe you can quilt pumpkins on it.

Karen said...

My pumpkin quilt is looking very good!
Please let me know what day you are going to put your Schnibble in the basket on the porch. And make it a nice Longaberger basket. I may pay you a mystery visit in the dark of night. LOL!

Beautiful quilt and a lot of piecing, and I can imagine how nice it will look with your quilting. Love how you did the pumpkins, gives the look of vines around them, nice choice of design.

Lovely quilting on the pumpkin Q, but that's nothing new. Your work is always special.
