Cindy Lou Who, meet.....
My October Schnibbles.
When this pattern was announced I was a little disappointed, for some reason it did not initially appeal to me, but I went ahead and ordered the pattern. Once I studied the pattern I was excited to make it. I had never made a quilt top that used snowball blocks. Last month I was determined to use my Gobble Gobble fabric, before I even saw the pattern. This month I mulled over my choices after getting the pattern and decided I wanted to go with a red, white and blue theme. I wasn't in the mood to work with those colors, I was more in a fall or holiday fabric mood, but I went with what I thought it should be and am really glad I listened to my inner voice. This is a quilt I would never have made if I weren't participating in this challenge. I am very happy with how it turned out and happy to have it. I plan to use it next summer as a coverlet for my bed. This is quilt # 51.
Additional Note: I increased the block size to 6 1/2 inches to accommodate the size of the center star in the 9 patch blocks and I mostly used leftover fabric from a previous project so this is practically a "free" quilt!Print this post
