March Schnibble and Completions ... Woo Hoo

Happy Saturday! Well my plan was to do the border on my March Schnibble last night but that didn't happen ... it happened today instead ... but nonetheless, it is done! I used a jellyroll to do this schnibble rather than charm packs. I had made a quilt out of this fabric a while back, hated how it looked, tore it all apart and put the scraps away...then when this pattern came along i came across the scraps in my tub and used them up. I made it two rows wider and two rows longer just to use it all up and i'm glad i did and i'm glad it's done!!!! Tonight when Dave left for work i got the binding put on another quilt that came back from the quilters this week and today i ran to the quilt store in Bluffton to purchase some fabric to do the Pinwheel Party quilt. I had 3 1/2 yards of fabric i bought a few years ago and decided then i didn't like it, but i think it will make good background fabric with what i bought today...so, i'm off to get the fabric cut so tomorrow i can get the first 4 blocks done since the 5th block comes out Monday.

Have a wonderful Palm Sunday!

I don't know how the original creation looked like, but this one is beautiful! And I can imagine it must feel good to have 'rescued' a project with such a great result. Have a great weekend!

The fabric works well with this pattern. Sometimes you love a pattern and love a fabric but they don't love each other.
