A wee bit that’s all there has been time for. I pinned and marked my Christmas runner and then actually quilted it myself….very simple quilting, cross hatched the the whole thing. I was a bit worried about putting the giant rick rack on before it got washed so I went for it, thru it in the machine then added the rick rack, and now just the binding is left to do. This month we get to pick the Schnibble pattern of our choice. I decided to go with Spot and will be making a runner out of Vintage Modern. So far my blocks are made and rows are marked. I love this pattern. I was one of the lucky winners for last months Schnibbles giveaway, and Miss Rosie herself, Carrie, sent me the most wonderful box of goodies. Thank you, thank you, thank you, and thanks to Sinta and Sherri for this fun group.
