I did it!

Back in September, I participated in Cynthia's Quilty Orphan Adoption, and shortly after that received a package from Susan at Mrs. Pepper.  The package included all of the pieces and parts to make a Schnibbles mini quilt called McGuffey.

Susan had done a wonderful job organizing all of the parts for the quilt with notes about what section they were for, and from her blog I found a picture of what the finished quilt should look like.  Then I started to put it together, pretty much figuring it out from her notes and the picture.

I started with this:


And, as of today, I have this:


Yes, I did it!  And I am pretty pleased with the result, too!  The next step is to get it quilted, and then in April this little project is going to a silent auction for a local charity that supports the medical needs of babies and children in our area.  This will be my third quilt to donate to this charity!
