My July Schnibble

Hi Everyone!

I was going to call this post "updates and tidbits," but then I remembered that I need to post about my Schnibble for July before I forget, so look for that post tomorrow!

Here it is:  Ta da!  My July Schnibble, miraculously "made this month."  Okay, not really.  I made it a while ago, though, in hopeful preparation for this month.  Boy was I lucky that Sinta and Sherri had a "choose your own pattern" for this month.  Back in the spring I made several Schnibbles, hoping that one may work for one of these months that I couldn't participate due to "The Longest Move EVER."

This is my version of Spot.  I was looking for a pattern (and a fairly new release Schnibble) which would showcase the chosen fabric beautifully, and this seemed to be it.  I had leftovers from making this huge king-sized quilt made from Kate Spain's Terrain, which I had made for my sister and brother-in-law's wedding. 
When I make a wedding quilt, I like to give a matching wall quilt for the first anniversary, and this Spot Schnibble seemed perfect.  I didn't realize how perfect until I saw that Terrain was the fabric Carrie used to make her version!  This now make two "un-original" Schnibbles,  (I also used Origin for Bibelot.)  That bugs me a bit, until I look at both quilts and really love them.  I am going to try to be a bit more innovative later, though.

I'm looking forward to the upcoming parade on the first of the month.  Please check out Sinta and Sherri's blogs at the above link to see them yourself!  It is always an amazing day.  I can't thank those ladies enough for the excitement they provide!
