Now I know why everyone is crazy about Schnibbles patterns from Carrie Nelson! They are well written, easy and fast to finish! As you know, I am participating in Anne Marie's 9-Patch Challenge. Maybe I'm the first finish? I'll find out from Anne Marie soon, I'm sure! I now have 5 tops ready to quilt for whenever Lenni arrives!
As I said in a previous post, this was a kit that was given to me last fall, so I'm following the rules for using only what is in my stash! I am also participating in Ulla's Use Your Stash 2011, so I think I've accomplished two challenges in one! The fabrics in this kit were Civil War fabrics - the lights are all shirtings. I wish the colors showed up better, but this is the best I could do with photo editing! My studio gets very dark and shadowy in the afternoons. When the electrician was here the other day, I asked him to give us an estimate on different lighting for the room. I'm thinking I might like recessed lighting around the room. I also have two Ott Lites which I shine directly on my work surface. I would be interested in any comments about lighting from those of you who have designed your quilting space!
