I got so much done this weekend, which is surprising, since the weather was so lovely, it was a shame not to be outside. I got the Joy Luck Schnibbles pieced together, and think it turned out very pretty. I used an older line of Kate Spain's called Paradiso. Those pink, coral, navy and aqua tones are so nice together.
I altered a few things in the pattern. I made it smaller--the pattern calls for five rows of twelve blocks and I made five rows of ten. The border on the pattern is also different. It is a series of rail fence blocks turned this way then that, and I just sewed strips together.
The result is springy and I am hopeful Sara will enjoy using it on her table.
This is the view from my back porch. Can you see why I kept wanting to sit outside in the sunshine?
