I had the most delightful quilting experience this week. I've had several sets of charm squares in my stash for some time now. I pulled out my book, Schibbles Times Two by Carrie Nelson and pieced together my first Scnibbles quilt. This could be addictive!
These little precut squares are so easy to work with.
I stacked them and sliced.
Working with tiny pieces was a challenege.
The squares came out surprisingly square :)
I put the squares up on the design wall so I could arrange them the way I wanted them.
The original design called for an inner border with plain corner squares and an outer pieced border with quarter square triangles.
I didn't have quite enough charm squares, so I chose coordinating fabrics from my stash for the quarter square triangle blocks.
After sewing the squares together and attaching the inner border, I tackled the outer border.
One hundred little rectangles made up the pieced border.
When I finished I realized I was going to need another border to allow some room for the quilt to drape over the table. I had just enough of the turquoise tone-on-tone for the outer border.
Now, all I need is the batting so I can finish! See you again soon!
Until next time,
