Hey, did anybody besides me jump right on the June Schnibbles project, State Fair? Talk about a cute pattern. I have had this on my To Do list ever since it was released. Terrific selection Sinta and Sherri!
I had a layer cake of a collection called Odyssea by MoMo, an adorable Japanese designer for Moda. MoMo's designs are always whimisal, colorful, and ever so slightly surreal. Two of her other collections are Wonderland and Freebird. If you are not familiar with her, do check her out at the Moda website .
Since I have a good amount of the fabric to play with, I plan to make the Schnibbles more quilt sized. The blocks are super fun to make, since you have lots of opportunities to combine the cute fabric strips into your block. Another nice feature of this block pattern is that it is made larger and meant to be trimmed down. That always leads to wonderful accuracy. And just see how all those troublesome pinked edges are getting trimmed right off.
I am just using my six inch square Omnigrid ruler for the trimming step. It is going quickly, and in no time I finished quite a few blocks. How cute are these?
As I was mentioning yesterday, it seems that these days designers are being true to their designated color palettes, and when I found I needed some extra pinks for State Fair, I pulled what I needed from another MoMo collection, Wonderland. It all works perfectly together!
