Mini Shine



Hello everyone! I hope you had a great holiday season!


My Mini Shine, the Another Year Of Schnibbles quilt for the month, is finished.








The fabrics are Nine Dots, designed by Carrie Nelson, and the background I used was from the Confetti Basics line by RJR.

I really loved how they went together.










Awhile back, I mentioned my interest in using backgrounds other than white, just to shake it up a bit, and I think this Confetti Basics fabric does just that.










This Mini Shine pattern, designed by Sherri McConnell, was a perfect one to do in the month of December.  










It was quick, fun, and addictive!  Very easy to fit in between holiday wrapping, decorating, and baking.










I'm looking forward to the next month of AYOS.  Be sure to visit Sherri and Sinta to see the AYOS Parade in the next few days.



Have a Happy New Year!!

I do love that background fabric (will have to see if my LQS carries it) and it really does add to the look of the quilt.

Love the confetti! Looks like you have already celebrated the New Year (and haven't cleaned the mess yet...hehehe).

Happy New Year!

I agree with all the above comments. Love the confetti - must look for it - bored with white, black, natural backgrounds. Happy New Year and thanks for sharing your work with us.

I just love this one, Michele! It is so happy and sparkly looking. I might like it better than jersey girl if that's possible. The confetti background really adds playfulness to the already cheery fabrics.
