I managed to finish my Another Year of Schnibbles project for August, just under the wire. I am calling my effort "Spooky Canasta" since I used the Halloween prints from a charm pack of Primitive Gatherings "Seasonal Gatherings" collection. I made the smallest version of the project since I started late, didn't have much fabric to work with, and even less time to work on it!
It didn't take these creepy crows long to discover it.
Why is it that solid looking fabrics show every wrinkle and pucker? So annoying. I swear I pressed the dickens out of this quilt top. Things will improve with quilting, which I plan to accomplish sometime in the next couple of weeks. The background fabric is actually a very subtle shirting print by Renee Nanneman for Andover Fabrics.
If you are new to Another Year of Schnibbles, it is a Sew Along group hosted by Sinta of Pink Pincushion and Sherri of A Quilting Life. Each month they choose a Miss Rosie Schnibble pattern and lots of enthusiastic folks sew along. Go check out their blogs for the Parade of Schnibbles and to find out what the project is for September. I hope they never stop doing these monthly projects! Sometimes it is all I manage to get done in an entire month!
