A Wednesday Schnibbles

Today's WIP is my reward for making all those Farmer's Wife blocks last week. Looking at the pattern photo, it looks to be a snap, doesn't it.

I hate making quilts that go together in rows.  Especially diagonal rows (see this example from Quiltmaker's Scrap Squad. Love the quilt, hate the technique.)

You know how they tell you to read through all the directions before beginning a quilt? If I'd done that, I probably would have put this pattern away and made one of the other Schnibbles quilts I didn't get made this summer. I had it all cut out and the sashing four-squares put together before I realized it had to be sewn together in rows.

However, I plowed on and now it's on the design wall.

Bad photo, I know. When it's sewn together, I'll move it to a wall with better lighting.  The fabric is "Gypsy Girl" by Lily Ashbury for Moda. She's one of my favorite designers, I've made several quilts from her fabrics.

This is "Cheaper by the Dozen" in Summerhouse, quilt #5 in 2012.

And this is "Strips and Ladders," #43 in 2011.

I love Lily Ashbury's fabrics!

Linking up to WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced.

  1. Your schnibbles quilt is really darling.

  2. It looks amazing, Marti. Great job! :o)

  3. Of course you will make it - I can see that you really need a good design wall to be able to do that schnibbles quilt - it looks great even if you didn't enjoy the process.

  4. Oops, lost the address for where to send the hats were making for sailors. Please let me know as I have 2 hats to send. Thanks! Victoria
