I’m doing a little series of posts that feature old blog posts. I have been going back and looking at them. It’s been fun. I started blogging in June of 2009…WOW. Ten years. I’m so glad I’ve kept the blog as a diary of sorts…today I’m telling you about the quilts and crafts I did on February of 2010.
Back then I was very into Miss Rosie Schnibble patterns. I was doing one a month. This was my Sunday Best Schnibble. Looks like I did it in 30’s prints. I completely forgot I ever made it!! You can read more about it HERE.
I’m guessing I gifted this as a baby quilt but to who I have no idea. I often added a border to make them bigger so they were baby quilt size.
The Country Threads pattern, Four Seasons, features a mini quilt for each season, and I have made them all….fun, quick projects. Mine have hung outside for three years and it was time for new ones.
The quilts are 14 x 18 and are perfect to fit on the banner stand I have. Read more about it HERE. You’d have to contact Mary to see if that pattern is still available. I know Mary and Connie have been selling a few patterns.
I was playing around with the Twister ruler. Oh my, weren’t those quilts all the rage. It really was a fun quilt to make. Here is my attempt…
Read all about it HERE. HERE is a link to the ruler I used. I made a mini one one time too.
Kelli was home and was machine quilting and working on this quilt…It’s a Miss Rosie pattern. Read more about it HERE.
I have loved this quilt that Kelli made. She does an awesome job on color selection. I love quilts that are more muted color. I just always think bold when it comes to colors.
Bahahaha…read about this next quilt. I wrote I was so excited to be starting a new quilt. Oh my. This still isn’t finished. Read more about it HERE.
Last year I did cut out more blocks. Did I make any more blocks?? Just a few more…like 15 more. Oh my. I really should pull this out but right now I am buried in deadline quilts. UGH. Someday I’ll sew for myself again. Someday.
I was so excited to have this done… Read more about it HERE. This was a From my Heart to Your Hands Lori Smith pattern. This was a seasons pattern. I loved it. Hmmm. I wonder if I have it anymore.
I made this little pinkeep. I still have it. You can read more about it HERE.
This was from a pattern that I bought when I was in San Diego at the conference.
..and this pincushion. Read about it HERE.
This also came from the quilt shop I visited. It was the Country Loft. The shop was wonderful. Sadly, I clicked the link and it went nowhere so I’m sure the shop must be out of business.
I made myself a pair of mittens from an old vest. It was so fun. I still have them. In fact, last time Karl and I shoveled snow, Karl wore them. HA!! You can read more about them HERE.
I remember being so thrilled with making these. I never made more pairs. Connie made me a pair and wear hers more than mine.
Well that’s what I was busy crafting and sewing in February of 2010. I sure like looking back on the old blog posts. I sure wish I took bigger pictures back then…and I wish I wrote in more detail too. Thanks to all of you who have stuck with me all this time. Those old posts really could use some spiffing up..but that was what I was then…this is now. Now I’m wordy and long and feel free to share share more. I notice I had typos then too…at least some things haven’t changed!!

I think I have been following you that long, certainly since the crumb along. I scrolled back and my very first blog post on my blog was a link with your Try it on Tuesday but that was 2012, so it took a few years for me to get the nerve up to blog myself.
I really liked your Sunday Schnibble quilt. Are her patterns still available?
I did a few of the monthly Schnibbles quilts. I loved the quilts I made too, and, like you usually added a border to make them more useable.
I was sad when the blogs finished the initiative.
To Judith above, there are 2 or 3 Schnibbles books available, and some stores still have Miss Rosies QC patterns available. I know the Fat Quarter Shop has them.
I live just outside of San Diego and sadly it’s true, Country Loft has closed.
