Vintage Schnibble - Sew Fun

Sinta and Sherri have started up Another Year of Schnibble Vintage!

April's challenge was Hat Trick which I had in my Schnibble stock pile but had never made.  I used Mama Said Sew by Sweetwater.  I changed up the border from what the pattern suggested.  I still need to add a binding - will likely go with grey.

I am calling this quilt Sew Fun.

I had fun quilting - I put a flower like medallion in every square.  This FMQ was all done without marking the quilt top but I did practice on paper ahead of time.

One cool new must have sewing tool I have found is Pinmoors.

Pinmoors are a small cylinder of silicone that you stick the pointy end of the pin in.  This means I can use my normal straight pins for basting!  Hurrary!!

You can use these over and over again - they are self-healing so remove the pin and no hole is left behind.  Made for a painless FMQ session!

You can get you own Pinmoors here.  They come in all different colors.

I will also be doing a giveaway of some pinmoors next week during SMS giveaway days!

Happy Stitching!


  1. love that product idea -- I'm gonna be on the look out for them for sure.

  2. Bwahaha, that quilt matches my bag! It looks fantastic, that flower motif in the center of the blocks...gorgeous! :)

  3. Such a cute Hat Trick. I like the fabrics you used.

  4. Your quilt is beautiful. I love those pin covers, very neat idea.

  5. Fantastic! Your Hat Trick is So Fun! Funny, I'm using those fabrics right now also! I hadn't seen those little pokie things... thanks for sharing! See you at the parade!

  6. I keep hearing about those pin moors but they are not on my budget. Looks like they work great though.

  7. that is just beautiful! i love these Schnibbles quilts! I tried basting with straight safety pins and couldn't do it so I'm not sure how you'd baste with straight pins? I struggle to get them down and then up through the layers

  8. The Hat Trick quilt looks great in this fabric. I really like how you've used a solid white large block.
