My Madeline quilt top is done

Hi everyone!
I hope you all had a great day.
Today was my last day off.
I go back to work tomorrow.
 So, I took a "me" day today.

I relaxed this morning.
Then I went out to lunch with Michelle (Dresden Quilter).
It was our first lunch out together, so that was nice.

Then I went to a couple LQS and looked around at what they had.
I bought a few fat quarters, but that's it.
I then came home and made supper.

After supper was done I decided to work on
my January Schnibbles quilt top.
 We are doing the Madeline pattern this month.
 I used two Aster Manor charm packs for my top.
I really like that fabric line.
 I might buy more in order to make this quilt top bigger.
I haven't decided yet. This top is only 28"x28".
So it is quite small. It's really cute that way though too.
So I'm not sure what I'm going to do yet.

I'm glad I got this top done early this month.
That way I don't have the pressure to do it at the last minute.
Well, I hope you all have a good night.

Hugs Ariane

Love it! I'm making my Madeline from Aster Manor too - great minds think alike and all that. I agree with you - I see another quilt from this block in my future. It's such a classic design, it would look great in all kinds of fabric!

I have a layer cake of Aster Manor waiting for my attention. Your Schnibbles quilt is lovely. Sorry you have to return to work. Cheers, Ann :-)

i used Astor Manor as well! Love that line of fabric even though I never really thought those would be colors I would be comfortable with. It just kept calling to me and I HAD to make something with it!
