A Bit More Curio!!

I just posted a few days ago about finishing my March Schnibble in time for the online parade. Whew!


When I was trying to find the needed 2 charm packs of the Curio collection for the quilt, I could  not find one place that still had 2 packs for sale, so I purchased a Layer Cake instead.

So, I cut the Layer Cake squares in two, setting aside one “half” stack for later and just used the other half, split again into two stacks of 5” squares for the Schnibble quilt.


So, what to do with the remaining half of the Layer Cake???  I arranged the 5” by 10” pieces on my design wall, along with a few 5” squares leftover from the quilt, to make a bed warmer / table runner!  Love the versatility!


Four strips wide by about 10 strips long gave me a runner 18” by 90”!  I had some yardage of one of the florals in the collection for the backing and used a stash fabric for the binding.


I free-motion quilted it with leaves!!


I really like it on my dining room table for spring!!  And no leftovers to store away!  YAY! 


Gosh I do so L.O.V.E. being home for spring break so I can sew all day !!

  6. For me spring break is not such a getaway :( it means my kids are home from school and I have my three kids plus three littles (one is normally in preshcool) all day long! I love my kids, but wow the work! LOL Is school back yet???

  7. Love this bit of genius - thinking outside the box always puts us onto something new and different. Love that fabric. Judy C
