Yesterday I committed to a new group this year, the Charming Girls Quilt Club.  I really hope that I can keep up with these ladies…some of them are VERY PROLIFIC QUILTERS!!!!

Here is a rundown of what I would like to accomplish this month:

1.  Madeline Schnibbles pattern.  I was SO excited yesterday when it was announced, and got to cutting straight away.  I’m using the same fabrics from the original, Rouenneries, and it’s going to be gorgeous!  Here’s the first block so far:madeline block 1 

2.  I want to quilt and bind my Cindy Lou Who quilt.  This will be quite the feat, as I haven’t quilted very many things…Cindy Lou Who Schnibble - au.then (2)

3.  I would like to complete the piecing of a quilt top using a Legacy Jelly Roll.  The pattern is Fig Tree Quilts Jelly Girl (picture from  I started this one a few weeks ago, and boy oh boy, it’s testing my ability for sure.  I had to set it aside for a bit. 

OK…that just about does it for now, well, for goals anyway.

I do also want to post a picture of another block that I finished last night.  Block 7 for the Mystery BOM.  I changed this one a bit.  Rather than using the two different blue fabrics, I chose to only use the blue tonal.  I didn’t like that the tops of the blue portions were in a different fabric…looked weird to me…anywho…bom 7 And here’s how they all look together…well, all of the pictures together, anyway!

OK, peeps!  I’m off to my dinner…homemade gumbo…yum!
