April Schnibble - Summer Day

This month, I actually followed the pattern!  I used Reunion by Sweetwater for the fabrics - I love the line and they really do look summery to me.  I purchased some 1/2 yard pieces to go with the charm packs before we were given the pattern for April so I used one of those for the sashing on the flying geese blocks.  Because of that, I only needed to use one charm pack and still have one left.  I'll probably use it for a doll quilt. 

Summer Day in Reunion fabrics
I hand quilted this by following the outside of the large triangles in the geese and stitched two parallel lines in the border, closer to the inside of the quilt than the outside, 1/4 inch apart.  It's been finished for a couple of weeks but I haven't had a chance to take a picture of it until today.  You know how life can be.

  6. Mary, I left a comment on Carrie's blog, but just in case you didn't see it, I got my bamboo point turner at Joann's. The one here in my area always has them. Hugs...
