NewFOs in June

I've broken my own rule on the last morning of June by starting a NewFO even though I haven't finished my last one. Bad Deb! After holding firm all month on not starting June's Schnibble "Dulcinea" I just couldn't resist a little fun sewing when I woke up early this morning before I put the covers on my machines and gave them a goodbye pat.
I've had this tutorial pinned for months and I saw a finished one on Threadbias the other day which put it into my MUST MAKE SOON mental list. So this is the start of my rule breaking June NewFO Project - you can find the tutorial for this Fabric Basket at Pink Penguin HERE.

May's Schnibble "Gentle Art" NewFO did make it to flimsy status in June and is hanging in front of my closet ready for quilting when I return. The awesome hangers are from, you guessed it, IKEA!
April's Schnibble "Hat Trick" NewFO made it to the Finish Line last night. Boy I love this one! It will find a home on a wall in the guest room (old quilting room) in July.
I might be in a bit of a grid quilting rut... but it just looks so great on scrappy projects I can't seem to stop.
I've saved the cutest NewFOs around for last... we were just sitting down for dinner last night when I spotted one loon parent and one baby near our dock. I had seen both parents with twins (1st time in years on our our lake) earlier in the week when I was out on my paddle board so I anxiously watched for baby loon #2 to appear. The eagles are baby loon predators so it's a dangerous time when they are this small. By the time I'd grabbed my camera and crept out onto the dock the whole family was there!
Tonight I'll be seeing this - the Vegas strip in all it's glory...
I'm already drooling anticipating tomorrow's breakfast at Mon Ami Gabi in the Paris Casino... cafe au lait in a big sipping bowl for starters... yummy.

After my June In Review and Q2 in Review posts go up later today I'll be on hiatus here until the 2nd week of July. I'm excited to view my fireworks this year at The Roman Tower at Caesar's Palace - I hope you all have a safe and fun 4th of July!

I'm linking up to Barbara's June NewFO Linky Party@Cat Patches.


  1. I love Marmalade! That's gonna make a cute little basket. You know I've got a few little charms left from that line...might just need one of those baskests also!

  2. Your Snibble projects are gorgeous! Enjoy your vacation!

  3. I just love the colors in your Schnibble quilt. I think I'll probably have to do that one myself. I guess I'm hooked on nine patches. I just got my Sister's Choice blocks put together. I've been working on those for so long! It's one of Bonnie Hunter's free patterns. It was great that you got the whole loon family together in one picture. You're lucky to have them to listen to.

  4. Your Schnibble quilts are so cute. I really love the fabrics in the first photo. Have fun on your trip!
