Year of Schnibbles...Plan C
I am so happy with this Schnibble...well it's really a big Schnibble...I decided to do the big one from Schnibbles Times Two...when I first got the book I picked out Plan C immediately...my original plan was to do it with patriotic fabric, maybe a Minnick & Simpson line. I pondered that, even collected the fabrics I was going to use...I decided I was going to use several of their groups because they all work so well together. I didn't get around to doing it, other things moved in line in front of it. Then it was announced that it was the August choice for Year of the Schnibble. Fast forward to the end of last week...oh my gosh, the end of the month is going to be here and I haven't done a thing on Plan C! I was in my storage room on Thursday and saw this very aged bundle of Roman Holiday by 3 Sisters...all of my planning for this quilt went right out the window...it had to be made out of this...I ironed fat quarters late into the evening and then cut...Andy went out of town Friday morning and returned Sunday evening...I took advantage of my alone time and sewed like a wild woman. The minute I put the piano key border on I knew I had made the right choice...Mr. Quilt Holder needed longer arms or I need to do smaller quilts.
