Shine on.

December's 'Another Year of Schnibbles' was not a Schnibbles but 'Mini Shine' by Sherri.  I love the regular size Shine...even bought the pattern the minute it was released.  I haven't made it yet but that's beside the point.

You can see the parade of Schnibbles on either of these blogs.  Mine will appear on Sinta's Pink Pinchushion blog and the other half of the parade will be on Sherri's A Quilting Life blog. 

I enjoyed this pattern so much that I made two.

For the first one I had a partial charm square pack of Sunkissed by Sweetwater.  I love that fabric line.  I used it in a quilt back in 2011.

While creating Mini Shine I really enjoyed matching up the little sets that would become each star.  
(See how handy those little clips are?)

I'm not sure which square is my favorite.  I like the pink and gray...

 ...but the yellow is what I bought yardage of when I made the quilt a few years ago. 

 Such a cute little quilt. 

I liked it so much that I went on and made another one using a couple fat quarters for a Valentine's look. 

You'd think I was new to this process, though, when you see what a little spritz of water did to the red.  Grrr.  I used all the tricks but nothing got the red out. 

Enough time has gone by since my last red-running incident that I got complacent and didn't test the red fabric. 

It is still a darn cute little quilt.

Can't wait to see what is on the menu for January.



  1. Wow...you made two! They are both adorable!

  2. Both of them are so adorable, Pam! Any more on tap for the future? Sorry about the red running, but I really wouldn't have noticed it if you hadn't pointed it out...

    Wishing you and your family a most happy and healthy New Year!

  3. Those are absolutely beautiful.
