November Schnibbles


This is the pattern the Year of Schnibbles participants made during November. For some reason I just could not get enthused about this pattern. Maybe it was the coming holiday. I certainly can't blame the weather as it remains quite summery here. I did finally decide on using a vintage yellow-with-cherries fabric I bought from eBay a few years ago for one of the baskets. After that was decided, all the other fabrics just fell into place.

This is the first time I have used a pattern where you had to trim the units to a smaller size. All I can say is t-e-d-i-o-u-s.





This is the vintage fabric I mentioned earlier. I love it! Oh, and then to compound my lack of motivation, I did not notice that I pressed one seam wrong in making each basket so when I sewed the blocks together, one seam did not abut properly.

All in all, I'm pleased with the way it turned out, but then again, it has all of my favorite colors. Be sure to check out the Parade of Schnibbles tomorrow at Sherri's and Sinta's blogs. I know I will!

I love the colours! I'm thinking of doing another on in 30's repo's. The trimming was very tedious but it did make everything go together nicely.

Seems that the lack of enthusiasm was a general theme this month. I think baskets are an aquired taste - especially getting the triangles in the right direction! Your piece turned out great though!
