Cindy Lou -- I Love YOU!

Schnibbles, Schnibbles, Schnibbles..... there will be a few Schnibbles passing through blog land in the next day or two. Cindy Lou Who was the pattern of choice for the month of October. I was not going to make this one, mostly because I did not have a moment of inspiration about color choices, and because the pattern was not available locally. But on a return trip, we stopped in the Olde Green Cupboard in Jacksonville Florida, and there she was! Cindy Lou Who in all of her glory :-) I loved the colors and of course wanted the fabrics they had chosen. No way! This sample was made up two years ago, and the fabrics were all gone of course. So I studied it, bought some similar fabric and was on the hunt for the pattern.

After finally getting ahold of the pattern, I dug into my CW stash and this is my Cindy Lou Who..........


I love how she turned out and I was up til the wee hours last night doing the quilting. I had to post this today because Cindy Lou is going to have to take a rest while I have other pressing projects to complete.

And have you ever visited Kelly at I Have a Notion? She's such a sweet and funny gal and has such great prices on all of her notions and supplies. Well about a week ago I found out that she had drawn my name for a signed copy of a yet to be released Edyta Sitar book called "Friendship Triangles".


This book is so beautiful and has some gorgeous quilts. Here is a sneek peek!


Okay peeps, now it's time to visit the other Cindy Lou Who's Schnibbles parade. Check out the side bar of Sherri or Sinta's blog. I am also linking with Sew and Tell this week, being that I have something that I sewed and can tell about ;-)

Have a happy Quilting weekend! What will you be up to?

I love your quilt ~ it's gorgeous! And I agree with everyone who wrote that the yellow is a perfect touch! Of course, can you ever go wrong with yellow, black and red? :)

Your quilt is darling. I'm glad you had so much fun making it. I liked seeing the close-up shots of your fabrics.

Looks like you keep very busy with your quilting. I adore the pics of the pumpkins and the darling pic of her kissing the pumpkin. The pumpkin is bigger than she is.
