Not my last blog post ... heaven forbid!
My late Christams sample ... maybe,
at least for now.

It's from the book Schnibbles Times 2, made from a charm pack and a little extra fabric.

Although it's small (33" x 33"), I still had to piece the back, but that only gave me more width not length. Then I cut a diagonal, moved one side down a bit, squared it off and ... a big enough back. I've seen/heard of this technique but never tried it. It gave the back a great look.

I did an all-over free motion design of poinsettias and holly - not bad, if I do say so myself!

Maybe it's the heat ...if I make Christmas quilts and knitted scraves and sweaters ... I feel cooler.
or - it could be the AC.

Your freehand quilting is wonderful! And I love the little quilt, aren't Schnibbles fun? I have made this one, but need to quilt it!

Sooo cute! As you know I bought the kit. Does the background really have dogs and cats on it?
