I chose to make a big one this time!
This month's Schnibbles pattern could be found in Carrie Nelson's book Schnibbles Times Two.
Each quilt in the book has a pattern for both a small version, made with charm squares, and a larger version made with layer cakes.
Since it's been awhile since I made a large quilt, I chose to make it big!
eXtra large in fact!
Well, not yet......I'm debating about whether or not I should still add the borders to it.
It's pretty big without the borders, but I do have plenty of leftover strips and layer cake squares that I could use.
I think I'll leave it alone for awhile and see what I think about the border later.
The Layer Cakes I used were from the Circa 1934 fabric line by Cosmo Cricket.
I love the numbers and letters in these fabrics.
Oh, and the dots too!
The background fabric I found is cream with subtle swirling lines and dots that I thought went well with the dots in the Circa 1934 fabric.
I love it when things work out that way!
Sometimes I agonize over my fabric choices. This is one just came together easily.
You'll find plenty of amazing quilts in the Schnibbles parade on Sherri's blog and on Sinta's too in the beginning of June, just a few days away.
This will be the only Schnibbles Parade for a few months, so be sure to stop by and visit!
We'll be taking a break from the parades to work on unfinished Schnibbles projects over the summer.
Carrie has so many new, amazing patterns coming up!
If you've been thinking about joining us, I hope to see you when we start sewing Schnibbles again.
Enjoy your weekend!
