Introducing my contribution to AYOS - Journey:

I used charm packs of Ruby but did a bit of a variation of the Schnibble pattern itself.  The 4 vertical sashing were supposed to be pieced from charm squares but I didn't like the color select so I choose a gray print from the line.

I call this quilt Journey because it represents a couple of big steps in my quilting journey (which I wrote about in my last blog post.)  This was the first time I used templates to lay down the quilting pattern.  I also stitched in the general area of the ditch around the star blocks, something I've not attempted on a quilt before.

I do still need to do the binding and bury just a few more thread tails but with the binding fabric on order, I decided to post this almost finish entry into AYOS.

Happy Stitching!


  1. Congrats on your journey....it looks great. I enjoyed reading your process and how you made the quilt your own. Great quilting too.

  2. I love your variation of the pattern. Good ideas to change it up a little. And your quilting is wonderful!!! Aren't these quilts a perfect size to handle advancing your own quilting techniques?


Leave a stitch...
