No Textile Dysfunction Here!

Nope! Just a terrible addiction. Kind of like Tiger Woods but different, although it DOES involve a lot of touching. But I like to think it's a better kind of addiction.

The new Schnibbles is done--the Reveille pattern made with the 12 Days of Christmas/Kate Spain fabric. Where's the addiction? Well, I just happened to be at the quilt shop today and bought two more charm packs of this fabric. Even though I STILL HAVE A FAT QUARTER BUNDLE. Untouched. Sick, huh?!


This one was quick to quilt--I thought it was just perfect for snowy swirls.


"Kim, now that you've finished that quilt, what are you going to do next?" Well, it's funny you should ask.


The next Schnibbles is cut. Addiction? Yep!

Schnibbles addiction. Fabric addiction. Charm pack addiction. And I just don't want to stop!

With this next Schnibbles, I'm really stepping outside of my comfort zone. This Freebird fabric by MoMo--part of me feels uncomfortable with it because it's not what I'm usually attracted to, but part of me is anxious to see what this turns out like. And I'm pretty sure we'll all find out before too long, 'cause I'm addicted. And obsessed. And I'm planning to spend a lot of time in the Sweat Shop this weekend (not to mention the next day or two). Yep, I'm sick, but in a GOOD way, right?

I like the snowy swirls....I could see why you grabbed up two more charms of same line...very nice!

I amazed by how quick you get these done! How big are they? I agree--what a good addiction, and it's calorie free!!

You would have plenty of company at an SA (sewing anonymous) meeting...

I love how you framed your Reveille with the striped fabric. Very striking and fun!

I love it and I can't wait to see your Freebird one.

I am amazed at all of the sewing you are getting done. Do you really think you could ever go back to work??? Here's hoping your hands are feeling better and keep up the good work, we love seeing it all.

Think of it this way, there are many worse things you could be addicted to! Can't wait to see the next Schnibbles quilt!

Oh, I'm so glad I'm not the only one! Last night I pulled out my Rouenneries yardage and my Madeline Schnibbles pattern to start cutting. After much pondering, I decided that instead of cutting into the yardage I really need the two charm packs the pattern calls for instead. So, I just bought two charm packs and some more of the border fabric, because I certainly don't want to cut into the HOARD of Rouenneries I already have - LOLOL! I'm ridiculous. So, while I'm waiting I pulled out Reveille to make first!! What a coincidence! I'm going to use Chez Moi POSH (I've got a story about THAT fabric too - LOL!) , but I LOVE it in that Kate Spain fabric!

Kim, I did this one, Four Corners, a year or two ago using Thimbleberries. Pam gave me the pattern as part of a Thimbleberries camp thing and I felt obligated to make a small quilt. It isn't very big and I think I gave it away as a baby quilt.

I want your addiction instead of my bread, cookie, ice cream addiction! Yours has way less calories!

Happy Quilting!

I share your illness. But it's ok because it makes us happy.
