Hi Everyone,

I have not been quilting as much as normal yesterday and today.  I really need to do some much-needed housework.  I'm assuming that you don't want to hear about that, so I thought I would share a bit about an ongoing project.

The Scnibble pattern for the Vintage Schnibbles parade this month is Lincoln.

I have been wanting to make this pattern for ages.  Can you see that it consists of star blocks and rail fences--stars and stripes! I even have some perfect charm packs--Old Glory Gatherings.  But then a different idea started germinating in my brain and I have pursued that.  I'm thrilled with how it is turning out.

It is competed and layered and waiting to get quilted.  Hopefully I can get the toilets scrubbed today with enough time left to do some free-motioning. 


  1. Oh thats just plain mean! Making us wait for pictures...
    Get those toilets cleaned and get sewing!
    We're waiting...

  2. ...me three!


    Love that pattern and can't wait to see what you've come up with!

  3. Ain't wait to see your finished Lincoln quilt--------clean toilets are highly over rated but I guess necessary. get busy!

  4. I feel for you! I was scrubbing toilets and mopping floors myself today. Now I'm just plum wore out. Hope you managed to find some time to quilt! (I didn't.)

  5. Gorgeous pattern!! Housework shouldn't be allowed to get in the way :-)

  6. Awesome! My blocks are still on the design wall--I hope to get to them after company leaves next week!
