February Schnibbles~Sunday Best~

I had this done the first week of February and have no excuse for not posting it or anything earlier.  I loved making this Schnibbles, Sunday Best although my choice of fabric is not exactly what I think of when someone says Sunday Best!  I used charm packs of a Jennifer Paganelli line called Dance with me along with some fabric from my stash.  I was able to get a picture during one of our rare days when the sun actually came out.  I tried to make it fall-ish looking as it was so cold it felt like a fall day up North. 
I changed the corners a bit by cutting squares rather than continuing the smaller pieces.  I didn't like that way as you had to lop off pieces to make the border fit. 
Be sure to check out Sherri's or Sinta's blogs on March 1 for the Schnibbles Parade showcasing all the participants in a Year of Schnibbles.  It's amazing to see all the different permutations we quilters come up with.
Up next, I'll share progress on one of my New Year's Resolutions:  actually sewing some of the many kits I've collected.

That is really pretty. I like your fabrics that you used in it. Are you almost done with winter where you are?

Lovely! I really like the colors - Springy and happy.

I also like your next post - I've been looking to make a weekender tote and appreciate honest reviews of patterns.

I like the first picture of your Schnibble with the shadows across it. The colors you chose feel so soft. Nice against the white background.

I look forward to the parade on the 1st each month. Love to see everyone interprets the pattern with fabric choices.

Thank you for the kind words on my blog. This Schnibbles' pattern was my favorite so far. Yours is darling! Also, I love that bag you made in the last post. I have an original Vera Bradley bag, and yours look just like it!
