It was a Blissful Weekend...



I'd been wanting to make this quilt for so long...


I've had the Schnibbles pattern "Short Story" for quite a while now but wanted to make it with Bliss (by Bonnie and Camille for Moda)...and I absolutely love the way it turned out! The pattern actually calls for charm packs, but since all the pieces are cut from 1 1/2" strips I cut strips instead, and I think it saved a lot of time cutting...not to mention that my left-over pieces are perfect for honeybun projects or string quilts. 


Now that Bliss yardage is available (I got mine at FatQuarterShop) I was also able to get the outer border on my Bliss "Paper Roses" quilt...
Two quilts I ♥...both finished in one Blissful weekend!

Wow! What a great weekend for you! I love your quilts!! I'd say they are 'happy' quilts!

Darlene said...

I love my Bliss Short Story quilt but I made the Big Schnibble. Someday I'll make the small one, too.

Truly a Blissful week end - beautiful quilts.

julia said...

Yay for your blissful quilts!
Wise decision to make 'Short Story' from strips...I think it's much more fun piecing it this way.
Love your 'Paper Roses'...I could bite into the cherry border ;o).
Hugs, Julia

Sherri, they are both just beautiful. The Bliss collection is one that 'calls to me'...I just love it and it was perfect for your two new quilts. Thanks so much for sharing, now I'm going back to your 'Wonderful Wednesday' post and drool over the FQ Bundle!

How wonderful that you were finally able to make this quilt after so long. Just beautiful! I really love how these Bliss prints look in quilt patterns - so so pretty! Looks like another productive weekend at your house.

Christine said...

Beautiful ... worth waiting for Bliss ... it makes a perfect Short Story.

Sue-Anne said...

HI Sherri, I love both your finishes but the schnibbles is so cute. The range of fabric you have used is gorgeous.

Sandy said...

Gorgeous....I love that fabric!!

Mama Pea said...

Fantastic! I just love Short Story. It seems like no matter what fabric I see it in, I love it. I must love the pattern, because I bought it twice by accident, and I have the book, which also has it in it! I guess I need to make it. I sure love this fabric, too!

Cardygirl said...

Boyh quilts are blissfully beautiful!

Peg - Happy In Quilting said...

Carol said...

Pretty! Pretty! Pretty! Love your Bliss. Short Story is a favorite of mine...I sure do like your Paper roses!

naoko said...

Hi Sherri,I love both quilts! So beautiful.

Carrie said...

The Bliss fabric is just that, isn't it? Absolute Bliss.

I think it is one of those collections that someone would really have to work at it to make an ugly quilt. It's just gorgeous fabric.

Rather like your two quilts. They're both beautiful and I love the borders you chose for Paper Roses. Perfect. :)

Sharon Kay said...

So beautiful and cheerful looking! You were a busy lady over the weekend!

a little bit biased said...

They're both so beautiful. You're lucky that you could start a new project. I have so many past projects or new patterns or bakeshop projects going on that I can't ever get to my old projects, so that I'm free to start new "just for fun" projects! They're both lovely and you've inspired me to get quilting!

Kansas Amy said...

That is just stunning. STUNNING! - Your newest follower

Nedra said...

It was fun to see your quilt up close today. It turned out Blissfully beautiful.

sincerely yours said...

Beautiful as always! Love them both. Emma

Suzie said...

Both of them look so beautiful, a wonderful collection of fabrics!

madebymum said...

Well done you.

Deb said...

Both are beautiful and I love the Bliss fabric line, but none of the quilt stores in my area are carrying this line, what a shame. Guess they'll lose my business to an on-line store.

Nanette Merrill and daughters said...

The blocks are lovely. You do such nice work.

Carrie P. said...

They are both just lovley. I really like the paper roses.

Kim D. said...

Wow, you really did have a blissful weekend! That Bliss fabric was named perfectly. Your quilts are gorgeous!

Red Geranium Cottage said...

Just beautiful Sherri. I love them both.

jen duncan said...

Those are both WONDERFUL Sherri! So pretty and happy. :-)
