Just in under the wire.....

I've said it before and I'll say it again because it is soooo true... if it wasn't for the last minute I'd never get anything done. Here's my entry for the July Schnibbles parade. This is Four Corners done in Verna, an older collection from Kate Spain.

I had pieces of this in a plastic bin, patiently waiting for me to release it and finish it. I have no clue why I put it away when it was so close to being a top.

I love this line. I've made a table runner from it and I have a bunch of blocks I started with this fabric, which are also in the same box. Their time hasn't come yet. My favorite print is those tulips on yellow - LOVE IT!!

If you look at the original pattern it is a very scrappy quilt much like this version I made with Fall fabrics from Sandy Gervais.

Isn't is interesting that by just making a little change in the fabric placement you can get a very different look from the same pattern - I love that about quilting!

Okay I need to get this sent over to Sherri or Sinta - can't wait to see the parade this month!

Happy stitching-

  1. And Carol chalks up another great Schnibble quilt! I might have to join you under the wire if this is the end result! What a great line. I either missed that one or I wasn't a quilter yet and I love that Four Corners Pattern. How big is your quilt? Just wondering if it would work for a table topper.

  2. I love the border on this one. Once again, very nice.

  3. Ohh--I love this months Schnibbles you made--great colors and with the white it just shines- way to go--
    Hugs, Di and miss gracie

  4. Such fun colorful quilts!!

  5. I love both versions, Carol. My favorite is the one with Verna because I love the white background. :-)

  6. Lovely as always! I love anything tulip, so you had me at first glance. :)

    Hugs to you and Big Dude, too.

  7. Great job! Both are lovely! And so different too! I agree with you. It blows me away at the difference that fabrics and placement can make in a quilt. Really the same, and yet so different. That is what makes quilting so fun! Lucky you to get to play with some older Kate Spain fabrics :-)

  8. Seeing your quilts always makes me smile! The colors and designs you chose are just so fun!


Thanks for stopping by. I really enjoy reading your comments. They make my day!
