It is pretty near the end of the month so it is time to share my Schnibble. This month the group could make a brand new pattern, Mercerie.
This was a fun pattern because you could "square up" the block nicely prior to sewing them all together.
I have noticed in making all these Schnibbles that not every charm pack collection is conducive to a given pattern. I found that out when I made my first one. Since then, I carefully look over each collection and pattern to see if they will work--by having the right amount of darks, medium, lights, and the correct "feel" for the pattern. The fabric line I chose for Mercerie I have had for quite a while because it just didn't seem right for any of our previous patterns. I was really happy to be able to use it this month: Moda Seascapes by Deb Strain.
Undoubtedly due to my Hawaii influence, I fell in love with this line of fabric and really looked forward to making something with it.
Sinta and Sherri host the Vintage Schnibbles group and show off everyone's finished quilts on the first of each month. I look forward to those blog posts all month! It is a lot of work for them and I can't thank them enough.
I played up the beachy-ness of the fabric when I photographed it.
I love how the colors of the sky and the water are reflected in the quilt!
Have a great day!
