My Fabulous Win and a BOM from Amy's Passions!

Last month my entry in the Parade of Schnibbles got me a win! Bear Paw Quilts and More at http://www.bearpawquiltsandmore.com/ sent me this fabulous prize!

I got a Cherish Nature by Deb Strain quilt pannel and two charm packs! I love the colors and know something special will be made from this..maybe even another Schnibble! I also got an very cool nail file with a quilt pattern on it and Bear Paw's info on the back! It was the best mail day and a big thank you to Bear Paw Quilts and Donna Henning as well as Sinta and Sherri for all their hard work in the Schnibbles Parade every month! Which reminds me, I haven't cut this month's Schnibble much less started sewing it! I am off work today (was supposed to be heading out to quilt camp, but some other important things in my life put that by the wayside...) and can spend it sewing...so here is what I have done already today...

This is a BOM from Amy's Passions Blog for April 2010. It took me an hour to do this Pennsylvania Parade block because I accidently put blue corners on ALL the background squares (well until I ran out of blue squares) and realized I need to read better, or drink more coffee before sewing in the morning! So I left them in case they come in handy elsewhere and and cut some more and continued on. I also took the time to put my new Angler 2 on my machine and I think I may have actually done a fairly accurate quarter inch seam. I bought two so that we can put one on the machine Kathy uses too as she struggles more than I do with that quarter inch. Hopefully this will improve my accuracy. I am also trying to iron carefully instead of ironing like I iron clothes. Both goals for this year and happy to say they are in place and it can only get better from here!
Back up to my quilting studio I go!

I had to rip on this April #3 block too. I thought I was being so careful, but my bottom corner blocks ended up with the background and blue in the wrong places. Not a hard block, but must be tricky somehow, lol.

Oooo....somehow in the business of life, I missed this post. I'm following your Year of Schnibbles label to learn more about it, and this post was in the mix. The BOM turned out lovely---BEAUTIFUL fabrics!!!
