|Brocante Schnibbles with Halloween fabrics!|
I followed Carrie's pattern exactly, except I couldn't bring myself to clip the seams like she suggested when joining the rows! Yikes!! I tried part of one seam that way, but I was just so afraid of cutting a hole in the quilt top or getting carried away and clipping the thread that joins the seam! And if you know me, you know its easy for me to get carried away with something! In the end I opted for pressing the seams open when joining the rows, but not clipping. I wanted to try more clipping, but I was just afraid......and it wasn't the scary fabric that made me shiver! Did you brave clipping the seams? I'd love it if you left a comment for me and let me know what you did. If you clipped, do you think it made the seams lay flatter than just pressing them open? Maybe I'll try harder to clip them next time if it worked well for most of you!

Thanks so much to my teenage helper.
Be sure to view the LePetite Parade on Sherri and Sinta's blogs in the next few days. I've already seen a few beautiful Brocantes floating around in blogland! Thanks again for leaving comments about clipping seams....to clip or not to clip......that is my question!
