Coloring outside the lines

I used a single charm pack of La Petite Ecole and a large scrap of Luna Notte to make my smaller version of this month's Schnibble. 

I spent far too much time with my seam ripper during the assembly process.  As a result, some of the blocks were not quite as neat and tidy as I would have liked.

I decided to take a risk on the quilting - hence the coloring outside the lines blog post title.  Instead of just doing an overall meander, I decided to go with the feather theme.  I love how my four feathers turned out on the inner sashings and the border feathers are ok.  However, not overly fond of what I did in the blocks themselves.

That said, I did have a blast doing the FMQ.  Feathers really are fun.  Next time, I need to try for something which does feathers over the whole quilt - ignoring the blocks themselves.

Looking forward to seeing what others have done with their fabric choices with parade time at Sinta's and Sherri's blogs

Happy Stitching!


  1. Very nice... the fabric colors, the pattern, and the quilting! Good on you for being so adventuresome...

  2. Love the "star tips" on this one, great fabric choice :) and the quilting is lovely!

  3. Gorgeous Patty!!! I love the way your version turned out!

  4. Wow - I love your fabric choices! Between the sorta solid grey and the lighter mottled greys - and the little sashing in between the 4-patches you've created a lot of movement. I'm quite inspired :)


Leave a stitch...
