Full House - January's AYOS Project

Happy end of the month!  While the month of January really seemed like it flew by, I was actually finished with my project two weeks ago!  Here's my finish!

This month's pattern, called Full House, is a Schnibbles pattern by Carrie Nelson of Miss Rosie's Quilt Co.

Here's my version! It uses prints from Sandy Gervais's last two fall fabric lines: Awesome and Grand Finale.  I'm proud to say that 100% of the fabric, including the backing, came from my stash!

I'm calling it Fall House - I know SUPER LAME play on the title, but it's the best I could come up with!

I still think that my favorite block is my "Italiano" block.  It reminds me of a great line of serving bowls from Crate and Barrel from years ago.  I'm still wishing that I had bought them ...

And, as a little side project, I saved up all the trimmings from my roof blocks ...

... and made a little mug rug with all the leftovers!

I bullied my mom, Rene, into joining the Schnibbles group too!  She made her project into a sweet 16" x 16" pillow:

She used a charm pack from Deb Strain's Makin New Friends line, along with some pieces from her stash.  The embroidered part reads "All hearts come home for Christmas."  Awesome job, Mom!

Be sure to check out all of the other participants' photos starting tomorrow!  They're at Sinta Renee's Pink Pincushion and Sherri's A Quilting Life.  Can't wait to see everyone's finishes and find out what pattern we're doing next month!

Oh!  Almost forgot!  Check out some other great Works in Progress over at the Freshly Pieced WIP-Wednesday link party!

I love Sandy Gervais, your Fall House project could not have turned out any better, Congratulations! I also really really love your Mama's pillow! Good Luck with i.s.t.h, I'm still pondering what fabric I want to use.

Fall fabrics are perfect for these little houses! It makes for an adorable quilt. And how great that you got your mom to participate too. Her pillow is a very creative version. I love the embroidery on it. I'm kind of stuck as to what fabric to use on the next quilt, perhaps Little Gatherings. I'm going to a quilt store on Wednesday and will just have to see if something catches my eye. Beautiful job!
