I have done pretty a good job of keeping up with my Vintage Schnibbles project each month, oops I am mistaken, I did skip one. I bought the pattern and fabric but did not start it. Anyway back to my Canasta Schnibbles, I have begun working on it and am having fun with it. It was supposed to be completed by the end of August due to a couple of fun summer trips I am behind schedule.
My first two blocks were made when I went upstairs to my sewing room this afternoon.
I decided to work on a few more blocks with the attitude expressed in this picture below.
I received this print from Carrie and Rosie of Miss Rosie's Quilt Co. I think what it says clearly applies to this project. I love the blocks but must keep plugging away to be sure they are accurate and to keep it fun and not a chore that must be completed now. I like it so much that I think I may have to pick up a few more charm squares and make a little bit bigger quilt that originally planned.
I stopped for the day with six completed blocks. I have the 25 blocks for the original plan cut out but as I said I may want to add more. I am using Scrumptious charm squares by Bonnie & Camille. The background fabric is a tone on tone with little white dots. I haven't decided on the sashing fabric, I am thinking a teal blue but I might get a few more blocks done before making that decision.
I hope to share a completed quilt top before too much time passes but I do not want to rush the process and miss the fun.
