Year of Schnibbles~ Times Two~


I got a little carried away with this month's Schnibbles, Tagalong. First off, I bought the pattern and then misplaced it. Still haven't found it and didn't discover it was misplaced until it was too late to re-order it as it was not to be found locally. So not knowing the sizes of anything to cut I thought why not make it larger as I had already decided not to use Charms and was just sorta tired of making small quilts.

This turned out to be a bit more challenging than I anticipated and ended up asking someone a bit more mathematically astute for help! I used all stash and leftovers from prior projects but it's mostly Faded Memories from 3 Sisters, with a little Romanza, Sanctuary, Portugal, and that luscious pink dotted background from Charity for a Cause/Legacy.

It ended up finishing out at 68 by 80 inches. I'm quite pleased with the results.

And here's my Block 5 in the Jelly Roll Sampler Quilt Along. It's a lot of fun sewing along and seeing what other participants are doing with their fabric choices. You might want to check it out if you haven't already.

I'm off to weed a flower bed full of these pretty little yellow flowers, almost seems a shame. Thanks for stopping by!
