Finishes!

I've been sewing bindings on like crazy this week! My "State Fair" Schnibbles quilt is finished and hanging in my entryway! It's so bright and cheery...I smile each time I walk by!


I also finished my "Be Attitudes" quilt from the book by Nancy Halvorsen. I finished the piecing and machine applique' on this quilt nearly a year ago, but just got it back from the quilter last week. This was my second quilt to do using machine applique'. I really love hand applique'...but some quilts are just suited for machine work!



Here are some close ups of the blocks. I love the snowman...and who could be mad at that puppy?


"Be grateful" and "Be Positive" were two of my favorite blocks to do. There are days I can really sympathize with that ant!


I think these final four were my favorites too!


Oh, and guess what...this was my 90th post...only 10 more until a GIVEAWAY! I hope you have a wonderful day!

Annette said...

Your Beautitudes quilt is awesome! And I love the Schnibbles one too, very pretty and cheerful.

Yvette said...

I really like how your Be Attitudes turned out. I have yet to quilt mine. In looking at yours I wish I wouldn't have put all the borders on mine. Now it is too large to turn into a wall hanging. Hmmmm, I guess it isn't too late to take a few off.

Great job!

Linda said...

Gorgeous quilts Sherri, the schnibbles one is so bright and cheerful. I just had a look around Nancy's web, she has some lovely designs. I'd love to chat with you about your machine applique.

Just delightful finishes! The Be Attitudes quilt has always been a favorite of mine - I agree that machine applique was the way to go with that one.

Two wonderful finishes. I would smile too every time I walked by State Fair. And the Be Attitudes would hopefully make me think about how I could improve my ways when I looked at it. Such nice work.
