I finally finished my Winter White Schnibbles quilt!!!

I'm done!! Yeah! Today, I finished my Winter White Schnibbles quilt. I'm so excited to be done. I spent the morning quilting it and then it took me the rest of the day to hand stitch the binding to the back. I just finished it a few minutes ago. I love the way this quilt turned out. It's not perfect, but still very pretty. I used fabric from my stash for this quilt. I usually buy fat quarters, and that's what I used. I even pieced the back with blocks cut from some of the fat quarters that I used for the front. I decided to make a simple nine patch block for the back. I think it's cute. I even pieced left over strips of fabric to make the binding. This quilt is being gifted so I took lots of pictures to remind me of it. I really like this pattern. I may have to make another one like this at some point. It was not the easiest, but I love the look of it.

On another note, last night I went to my local quilt guild meeting. I had so much fun. Some of the long time members of the quilt guild had their very own truck shows. Six members showed their quilts and shared their stories. It was so much fun. I had some good laughs. I think it was one of the most enjoyable nights out I had in a while. I'm really happy I was able to go this month. I hope you are all well!!

Happy Stitching!!!
