My Quilt Is On Kate Spain's blog!! Wow!

I almost fell off my chair when I saw my Honeycomb Schnibble Quilt on Kate Spain's blog!!  How cool is that?? She is showing quilts made with Terrain fabric on her Wowie Wednesday post..... fun name for a post!  That fun, bright, Terrain fabric is one of my favorites, and to see my quilt on her blog is just a 'pinch myself' moment! Certainly a bright spot in my week.  


My Terrain Honeycomb Schnibble with a 'redo' row and added borders.

This is where I get to mention that I have been blogging for almost a year now. When I started, I would have never expected a quilt that I made to be pictured on a fabric designer's blog.  To take a look at some quilts using Terrain, including mine, go on over to visit Kate.      

Plenty of little white triangles!!

Coincidentally, yesterday I took apart the first row of that Honeycomb that I made, but never put on the quilt, because it just didn't go together well.  That's an understatement!  That row was pretty wonky looking actually. You really don't want to see pictures of that!

Now if I only had some more Fandango to mix with these charm packs!

I learned from my mistakes and the second row was much, much better, but I just couldn't face taking that first row apart and redoing it until yesterday.  Read about my solutions here.  I decided to add the white borders to the top too. Now it can put it in the 'to be quilted pile', which continues to grow!  My machine is back from its checkup at my LQS and hopefully I can start working on getting that pile quilted.  Wish me luck!

Congratulations!

The quilt top looks great -the colours and white. Good luck finishing it and tackling your "to be quilted" pile. I am strict with myself and insist I layer back and bind a quilt before starting a new one unless it is a BOM. So far it is working.
