Lemonade - FNSI results

This month's pattern for AYOS is DOC (photo from Carrie's site).  This one uses Sweetwater's Hometown.

I decided to use Sweetwater's Reunion line for my Schnibble.  I set out to make my Schnibble 4 blocks by 4 blocks and merrily created my first block choosing the method to trim after sewing.  This mean since I was using charm squares of ivory (or cream or whatever), I could start sewing right away.  First block:

During FNSI, I finished blocks and the border and set out to assemble the quilt.  


Turns out I didn't have the matching Moda solid (to my time saving Moda charms) in order to cut the sashing strips.  I had several different fabrics (all Moda) that were close but not close enough.  I also didn't have enough charm squares to cut and piece the sashing.

Here is where the lemonade from my blog title comes in.   I decided to make a table runner instead!

Get it - lemonade out of lemons? (Smile)

Anyway, I'll likely add the HST blocks to either edge.  The Schnibble Doc pattern is very fun.  I am going to make the actual Schnibble with other fabric at some point because I quite enjoyed the puzzle like assembly.

Now off to enjoy the other FNSI results as well as view the over 300 entries in the wonderful entries in Amy's Bloggers Quilt Festival.   I entered my Romance quit - post here

Finally, I plan to participate in SewMamaSew Giveaway  ....see you on Monday!

Happy Stitching!
