While we survived hurricane Sandy with just some roof damage our Internet, cable and phone service is still out. Luckily, I thought to buy some 3G for the iPad on Monday so I'm not totally out of contact. I'm posting from the Blogger app so I'm sure at least one of the photos will be out of place, but at least I won't miss the deadline! It will be another day of sewing for me since the office is still closed.
Again, this month we aren't actually doing a "Schnibble" in Sinta and Sherri's Another Year of Schnibbles. Last month we went little with "Little Bites" and this month we go big! We had a choice of designer Carrie Nelson's Hubble or Bounce. While I do love Bounce, I'm already planning on making a similar quilt, so chose Hubble.
Carrie's Hubble actually measures 70"x 70" (for the smallest version!) My Hubble's quite a bit smaller at 37"x37".
When I saw this pattern, I remember the box full of half-square triangles leftover from my Swoon quilt. I had one block left to go, and to get the most color choices for my Hubble, I quickly made the flying geese for that last block so I could use those leftover HSTs too! And, as a bonus, I'm that much farther on my last Swoon block!
I just had to make a few two-fabric HSTs to go diagonally in the middle, but this quilt was half made already when I started!
I still have a few HSTs in my box....
So, we're coming into the homestretch on this year of Schnibbles. I'm excited to see what our last two months' patterns will be!
Hop on over to Sherri & Sinta's blogs on November 1st, to see the parades of Hubbles and Bounces!
