Getting Closer

How can you tell if you have a Schnibbles addiction?  I'm pinning rows together on my first one, and I'm already planning the next one.  Too fun!

I'll be sharing Carrie's book with you in a few days.  You're gonna love it!

Have you visited Victoria over at Bumble Beans?  She's wonderfully creative and unique, and I'm always amazed by the work she does.  In addition to her "regular" blog, she created a blog to challenge us to spend 15 minutes a day playing.  In fact, the name of the blog is "15 Minutes Play." 

Even when I don't think I have time to sew, I do it anyway for at least 15 minutes.  And most of the time, I end up spending a lot more than 15 minutes in my play room.  During my 15-minute play time, I've been using little scraps to make bigger fabric for cutting triangles. 

Skidaddle on over and see what else is going on over there.  

Speaking of wildly creative people, you probably already know Stephanie (and Abby) at Loft Creations.  If you don't, stop by there, too.  I love everything she does.  She just has a way with color and fabric that makes  me happy.  And make sure you visit her Etsy shop, too. 

Hope you have a great week!

Schnibbles are fun! And I've been so happy to have made so many...they are the perfect quilt for decorating...and for changing out according to the season! Love Stephanie's blog too...hers was one of the first I found!

Oh yes, Schnibbles are fun! And Victoria and Stephanie are some of the best people too! Their blogs are inspiring, but they are just wonderful.

It just takes one Schnibbles quilt and it's over. LOL I'm seriously addicted.

Oh, I love Stephanie - I've known her since she started blogging. She super creative.

I'll have to check out Bumble Beans. :-)

We definitely need to get together for show and tell this week. The scrap triangles are sooo cute. And bring your Schnibbles :) Can't wait to see it.

Barb said...

Yep you are hooked.....I love them but can't seem to find the time to start another one...but sooon, very very soon.

Trudi said...

LOVE the triangles! Look forward to seeing more of your shnibbles :)

Stephanie said...

Absolutely love your triangle play and always enjoy stopping by to see what you're up to. Seeing your lights and darks makes me realize I have mostly the same values in my stash. Might need to fix that. Victoria is full of creativity and such a giving quilter.

You're sweet, Kim!!!

Love those blocks! I'm going to have a good read learning all about it, it's such a great idea.

Nicole said...

You are so right about just spending a few minutes each day in the sewing room. Little by little, it is amazing what a person can accomplish.

Dang! I'm keen on those triangles and inspired by what I'm seeing here. Play? I haven't thought much of play. I need to consider this! Thanks for sharing and oh... neat to see how other folks work with their projects - like pinning. Appreciate even that! :)

I love Schnibbles, they are truly addictive.

Terry said...

Your triangles are so pretty! I haven't done a Scnibbles yet. I'm trying to be strong and resist! LOL

Candace said...

15 minutes is a great way to "keep the passion of quilting alive", Kim! I've been doing a lot of 15 minute stints here and there, just waiting for the cooler weather so I can extend my time a lot! Can't wait to see your finished Schnibbles!
Cheers!
