Canasta Schnibbles Under Construction

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.  
Visit Sinta at Pink Pincushion and Sherri at A Quilting Life to see the parade of Schnibbles that have been completed.
