Many blocks make quilt work

presenting…

My version of Carrie Nelson’s Little Trick schnibble, made with Kate Spain’s ‘fandango’ and an unknown mottle. I completed piecing this in the middle of mai, and still it waits. I can not decide on how it should be quilted.

For something that was meant as a quick finish, not knowing how to quilt it to a finish is bugging me!

The leftover squares from the schnibble I hand pieced and quilted into this mini runner.

To bind the inner corners neatly, I used these tutes: Alicia’s Attic, and Anka’s Treasures Quilting thread is Oliver Twists ‘over the top’ 16/2 mercerised Egyptian cotton in ‘sunset’ colourway.

Ah ça, as manman is fond of saying, back to my stars, and my newest Quilts Japan magazine. (J’adore!!) 🙂 Had she seen me today, out in the heavy rain, she would have said I was ‘trempé coumme un vraitcheux’ (soaked as a seaweed gatherer). I am very thankful for this warm, dry house to return to. Another reason 2b cheerful, no?

my creative space…

is a mess!

Reason 2b cheerful~ 56 flying geese trimmed, only 24 to go. Ah ça! My poor hand and shoulder. I shall not tell how long it took me to trim those 56 geese; too embarrassing. Despite careful sewing and cutting, the majority of my geese were wonky liek woah, and it became an art to trim them up. (I resewed some of the worst offenders–had to.)

Another reason 2b cheerful~ I found an Etsy shop that stocks ‘Paganini’ (Why Etsy did not occur to me earlier??) but they’re away until the 20th. At least I will be able to make the schnibble, even if I’m too late for the parade that Sherri and Sinta are proposing for ‘Le petit’.

Thank you for visiting, and do go see what everyone else is up to at kootoyou.
À bi!
