I have to make a confession here: I've never owned any Three Sisters fabric before. There are many lines out there that aren't really me, however, I am totally enjoying playing with fabrics that are not the norm. It is pushing me out of my comfort zone and I think it is good for me. The Schnibbles made with charm packs are the perfect way to explore, and Luna Notte was a perfect candidate. Looking around online, it seemed to be a bit of an older line, and not readily available. I considered combining with another new line, like Etchings or something, but then I hit paydirt and found another Luna Notte charm pack and some yardage at The Stitching Post --it is a shop in Indiana and I've been ordering from them off and on for years.
Now with the fabric sorted out, I turned to my growing collection of Schnibbles patterns, and flipped through them. I decided on Winter White.
Make a scalloped border. I tired it for the first time on my January Schnibble pattern and I loved how it turned out, so I was eager to play with it agin. This quilt seemed the perfect opportunity.
Here is the finished quilt. I love how it came out. It was lots of fun to play with fabric I don't normally choose. Another way that I pushed myself was to bind it in a lighter color. I don't normally do that, I prefer a darker binding, but when the border is black there isn't much other choice. I also had needed to order some pink yardage because the charm packs didn't have enough pink squares for this quilt, so that was what I used. I really like the way it came out, too, so obviously I need to challenge myself to not always do something the obvious way.
Mahalo Nui Loa to Kim for the prize!
