"Morning Joe"

    "Morning Joe" is done!  

     All I have to say is these Schnibbles patterns are fun, fun, fun!!!

     I was trying to decide if I liked the pattern more or was it the fabric that made it just so enjoyable to sew, but in the end I think it was a combination.  A well written pattern and fun fabrics.

Here's a close up of one of the blocks.....and I'm thrilled that I have points!  There are times, and it might be because back when I worked I rushed, but this quilt has "points" and I couldn't be happier!

So, here's a recap of the details:

"Morning Joe" by Miss Rosie's Quilt Shop/Schnibbles

Measures: 53 x 53

Fabric used:  Potluck by American Jane Patterns/Sandy Klop for Moda

I have a little yardage of this line that I could piece to use for the back, and I have a super cute piece of yellow and white cuddle from the Dr. Seuss line, so the question is "what should I use"?

I think I'll leave both out and revisit this issue over the weekend.

     AND, in the middle of a great afternoon of sewing, my "Reliable" iron crapped out on me.  One minute I was pressing a nice steamed border and the next the darn thing was as cold as ice!
I still have the box and receipt so I'm thinking an email to the company might be in order tomorrow.  In the meantime, I pulled out an old Rowenta that will have to do.....

   On another note, hubby went out to work this morning at 6:45 and the car registered 0 (that's zero).    Hope you are all staying warm!

Peggy, your machine must be smoking! You are cranking the quilts out. This one is adorable and I love the fabrics. Haven't made a Schnibbles pattern before, but it's good to know that they are well written.

Very pretty and so cheerful, colorful! Pulling out an old Rowenta in a pinch is like going back to an old car that still works. They just don't make them like that anymore! Lol

I LOVE your version of Morning Joe! Peggy, I replied to your comment on my blog, on my blog because you are a no reply blogger, meaning I cannot email you so I am not sure if you received my reply. Anyone can join the parade, just email Sinta and Sherri a pic of your version of Jersey Girl. :-)
