WIP Wednesday - July Schnibbles

This month for Another Year of Schnibbles, we were invited to choose our own pattern.  I chose one for which I have two charm packs from one of my favorite designers, Kate Spain.

Yep, that's "Spot."  And the fabric is "Terrain," by Kate Spain. (I know, bad photo, but I'm too worn out from spending all day yesterday at IKEA to set up lights and get a better photo.)

This is my favorite kind of quilt.  It hangs on the design wall and everyone who walks by rearranges one or two blocks to get a better arrangement of colors.  Only this week, I am home alone -- so I have to pay more attention to the layout myself!

It will have white sashing with the same turquoise cornerstones as in the center of each block.  I may add a print border to enlarge the quilt.  As is, it finishes at only 46" X 57" and I like my quilts to be at least twin-size.

Linking up to WIP Wednesday, guest hosted this week by Colleen at The Busy Bean.   Thanks, Colleen!

From the desk of your


  1. I always find that no matter how much I adjust the block layout, after the blocks are sewn together, I find one "mistake" and wonder how on earth I missed it...
    Love your blocks and colors!

  2. Fabulous! and my favourite fabric line too!

  3. I love that idea of having the whole household help you rearrange your quilt blocks! I will have to see if I can find a public wall that will work on!

  4. Loving this! It's gorgeous! What a great use for charm packs.

    Love that people help with the layout as they walk by - nice joint effort! ;)

  5. Sweet!
    This charming :0)

    Happy Sewing

  6. Stunning quilt! Yeah, I can never be 100% happy with layouts either. And when I ask my husband, I never like his suggestions anyway, being the stubborn, independent perfectionist that I am, lol!

  7. I'm with Ellie Q - that happens to me a lot - I'm really not a scrap person at all - so the idea of others rearranging it is a great idea - though Im not sure it would work with the male member of the house.

  8. Love your spot! It is looks great in those fabrics.
