Big Schnibble




Before I tell you about my project du jour I must share some information about my red mat. It's called a Miracle Mat and it's by Elan.




I said, "Yes", when a friend asked if I'd make Lincoln from Another Bite of Schnibbles by Carrie of Miss Rosie's Quilt Co using Cinnamon Spice by Blackbird Designs for Moda.




She sent all the fabric a couple of weeks ago and I've been procrastinating. LOL



I was up bright and early this morning; wide eyed and bushy tailed (it was 4:30am and still dark). After two cups of coffee I got busy; measuring (at least 3 times - LOL), cutting and sewing. After a couple of hours I stopped to go to the grocery store; the cupboard was seriously bare.



Thirteen star blocks is all I managed to get done today. Sigh!



Tomorrow is a new day and I'll git'r dun. LOL






I hope you enjoyed a pieceful day.






In Friendship!

Sounds like we have the same morning routine. I have been FMQ since 4:30am! That is, after my 2 cuppas.
Who knows, we might still be able to see stars at that hour...you did.

Good looking stars, and that's great progress for one day. This might be a pattern choice for some Christmas squares I've been saving.
