September Schnibble

The Schnibble for September is Speck although I prefer to call it John Mayer because I had his music on the entire time I was working on it. 




It looks nothing like John Mayer.  His music is soft and smooth while this quilt is bright and angled but it will forever be linked with his sound in my mind.  Have you heard Born and Raised?  It's awesome!

This is from Miss Rosie's new pattern line and calls for 2 1/2" pieces rather than charm squares.  I'm really happy with the smaller size.  It's great for a doll quilt or for putting on the wall with some of my other Littles.  I think I may reduce the size of the other Schnibbles I have planned and make them from the smaller squares, too.  This size is more useful for me - not fewer pieces or less work, just more useful.

I used the Carolers line by Mary Engelbreit for this one.  I had a charm pack so cut the squares into quarters - easy!  The setting posts and binding are from American Jane.

  4. Just adorable. I agree with the smaller size being more 'useable'. I like to use little quilts on the center of our table, the back of a chair, hanging over a shelf.........fun fun fun.

  7. I don't know the music or the singer, but I do know the pattern, because I just finished both for the parade. What a lovely cheerful combo of fabric you chose. Bravo! Aren't these Schnibbles parades fun?
