Friday Finish: Schnibbles

My last finish for June was my "under the wire" Vintage Schnibbles quilt. The pattern is "Dulcinea," and the fabric is "A Simpler Time" by Holly Taylor for Moda. I used Moda Bella Solids "Natural" for the background.

When I started to square up my 3/4 square triangles, I realized I could trim them to 4" rather than the 3.5" as instructed in the pattern. Of course, that meant I had to fiddle with the borders to make them fit. I had to add one 1" strip to the strip pieces on each side of the outside border. The quilt finished at 37.5" square -- perfect for a wall hanging. The colors just match the mountain condo of my friend Lori, so it will be a belated hostess gift!

You can see other "Vintage Schnibbles" at A Quilting Life and Pink Pincushion.

  1. Lovely! That color combination is yummy!

  2. I really love how the border gives a different pattern every time you look at it.
    A new quilt shop - lucky you - we are more likely to hear of one closing.

  3. I really like the pattern and I do excactly what you did --trim less make block bigger-- and then wing it on the borders. Yours turned out to be so pretty.

  4. Beautiful adn breath taking. Love the blend it has to it. You did a rocking job.

    Stop over to my blog if you like to join my first small give away.
