Let's have a Picnic

Today is the reveal day for the November Schnibbles. When I first saw this pattern, I loved how Carrie incorporated the American Jane fabrics. I have lots of similar fabrics, and auditioned with them several times, but they just did not seem to fall into place.

As I was thinking about how to make this pattern, I remembered about a stack of fat quarter fabric that I had. I had not used them before, mostly because some of the colors are not my usual palette.

But once I pulled them out, I thought I would give it a try.

So using the Victoriana fabric line, here is my November Schnibbles - Picnic

And if you have a question like "what are Schnibbles anyway?" Carol's Crafty Creations had the best description, so I'll let her tell you :-D

Now go and check out A Quilting Life and Pink Pincushion to see the Parade of Schnibbles for this month.

I am joining amylouwho on Sew and Tell Friday. When I finally finish something, I want to show and tell ;-)
