Notice anything new?  Or rather, old?

Yep, the header is back on the blog.  Celebrate!  My Little Sailor (aka Younger Son) is back in port and repaired the header.

In further celebration, I present the August "Another Year of Schnibbles" entry, "Dimestore."

Quilt #40 for 2012 -- I only need to sew three quilts per month for the rest of the year to meet my goal.  Yeah, I'm all about the numbers.

I didn't use charm squares on my Schnibbles, because I had this excellent Liberty Lifestyle Bloomsbury Garden yardage:

I bought my Liberty Lifestyle from Purl Soho.  The orange cornerstones are Kona cotton "School Bus."  I didn't have enough different prints to make all 16 blocks, so mine is only 12 blocks and will finish at 25" X 33" -- perfect to hang above the bathtub.

To celebrate, I'm linking up to "Can I Get a Whoop Whoop" at Confessions of a Fabric Addict.

  1. Love the orange in your quilt. Three quilts a month--you can!

  2. Way to go with 40 quilts! That is awesome!
    I love the look of Liberty fabrics, I think I need to get me some.

  3. Way to go MC3 Allison on fixing Mom's blog header!!! And way to go Aunt Marti on your fabulous quilt! :)

  4. I love that comment - only 3 quilts a month - you put me to shame!

  5. Wow, you've got me thinking: "Maybe I should piece a quilt per week in 2013!" Wouldn't that be a blast? Look what you've started! I bet my sister would love it too. Hmmm.

  6. Such a pretty quilt. I have always loved Liberty of London prints!

  7. Wonderful quilt! Such pretty colors! Whoop whoop!!
