Size: 19” x 25”
Methods of Construction: Machine Piecing, Machine Quilting.
Fabrics used: Sanctuary by 3 Sisters for Moda Fabrics
Completed January 2013
This little quilt was inspired by the “Another Year of Schnibbles” blog hop parade. Each month, a pattern is chosen and each participant makes something with the pattern in their choice of fabrics. The pattern was written to use 2.5” pre-cut squares of fabric (mini charm squares).
When I saw the pattern “Drop”, I immediately thought of my hoard of single charm square packs. The “Sanctuary” one in particular. Particularly, because I had a bit of yardage to go with the charm pack in my stash. I also envisioned the wonderful dark pink as a mini-flange.
I had a hard time picking only 25 fabrics that the pattern called for and went with 35 instead, to make it a little bit bigger. Each block measures 2.5” when finished. The top was completed in November of 2012.
As a participant in the parade, you are eligible to win prizes. Most are small gift certificates to various quilt stores, a charm pack or two. Two participants, however, are chosen to win the larger prize – a fat eighth bundle of a particular fabric line from Carrie Nelson, (the designer for Miss Rosie’s Quilt Company) herself! I happened to be one of the lucky winners of the bundles for that month! I have to still find a great pattern to use the fabric for, but don’t worry, it will come to me eventually.
