For years I've been wanting a fall table topper. One look at this month's Schnibbles pattern, Dimetore, told me this would be my year! All I needed was two fall themed charm packs, thank you Sandy Gervais!
The pattern has a 4 x 4 block layout, for a total of 16 blocks.
I thought a 5 x 3 layout would work better for my kitchen table.
When I put the finished top my on my table, it just didn't look as good as I thought it would.
Then I thought maybe I would stick with the 16 blocks called for in the original pattern, but go with a
2 x 8 block layout.
That's exactly what I had in mind, for my kitchen island.
I had purchased enough background fabric for an outer border, but I decided I liked it just like this better.
This is Lifetime Quilt Number 94.
The pattern is Dimestore by Carrie Nelson for Miss Rosie's Quilt Co.
The print fabric is Phenomenal Fall by Sandy Gervais for Moda.
The background fabric is Great Harvest by Debbie Mum for South Sea Imports.
This project finished at 18" x 64" and has approximately 381 pieces.
I'm eager to see Sinta and Sherri's Dimestore parade, but more eager to find out what our September project will be, Miss Rosie just released a whole new line of patterns, Little Bites, I sure hope we get to take a little bite!
