This month's AYOS Vintage is the pattern Gentle Art.  This was fun and easy to assemble.

My fabric choice was Honey Honey - I am really loving this fabric line.  I skipped the pieced border and made this 16 blocks instead of the 25 in the pattern.  

It finished roughly at 20 by 20 inches.  (I say roughly because I forgot to measure it before I gifted it!)  I decided to do a basic stipple FMQ on the blocks because I decided not to highlight the blocks.  I did straight line stitching in the border and like the way it frames the mini.  The binding is a bella solid 30's blue color and the backing is one of the prints from Good Fortune.

While I completed the Schnibble long before the end of the month - a first for me! -  I was about a week late in getting to my mom for Mother's Day.

Mom, Happy Mother's Day - I love you!

I really love how this turned out and I think I will make another one for me!  I named this mini Happiness.

Now I have to wait until the end of next week for the parade of all the other Schnibbles at the blogs of  Sinta and Sherri .

Happy Stitching!
