Sweet Spot Schnibble and Fit to be Geese Rulers! Wow!!


The LePetite parade for February is coming soon to A Quilting Life and Pink Pincushion. Sweet Spot, designed by Carrie Nelson, was the project of the month and it had plenty of flying geese!  Using the Fit to be Geese Ruler from Open Gate Quilts made it so much easier!  That is one amazing ruler! Check out the video with instructions for using the ruler on the Open Gate Quilts website if you are wondering how the rulers work. After watching it I was sold, and now after using it I don't think I'll make flying geese any other way.  I highly recommend it!


Schnibbles Sweet Spot

I made this Schnibble using both a Punctuation and a Fresh Flowers Charm Pack. There is a little extra black fabric that I added to the flying geese and the outer border after noticing that the borders needed a little more black fabric to pull out the black stars and add some pop. Of course it took some time to redo the borders, but I think it was worth it.  I just hope I don't regret pulling out a few pieces of black fabric from an extra Punctuation Charm Pack that I had, but I thought I should make Sweet Spot with the fabrics that I liked, rather than save the whole extra Charm Pack for some unknown project that may not even involve the black fabrics.


Lots of fun flying geese!
Easy Peasy Lemon Squeezy!

After reading my last post about fun mail, Carrie left a great comment about the Fit to be Geese Ruler and her extensive pincushion collection!  Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment Carrie!  You must be crazy busy right now! In Schnibbles news, from what I read on Carrie's blog we may get to see more Schnibbles patterns very soon! Maybe even tomorrow! You know I'll be there!

Wow, great job on your Sweet Spot, those two family of fabrics play well together in your quilt. I agree, those Open Gate Geese rulers are the best!
