Did I wait until the last minute?
Of Course!! Lately, that seems to be the norm with the monthly Schnibbles!
But now that I am retired, I hope to also resign from the title of “Queen of the Last Minute”!!
I used two charm packs of batiks this time! I’ve never done a Schnibble in batiks!
Don’t get me wrong… I’ve got tons of batiks… most of which I’ve never cut!! They are just too pretty!!
Even the pile of little cut off edges of the charms are pretty!!
I chose to do the 36 patch version of Carrie’s pattern…not sure why…but I do like it!
I decided to make her blocks into a long table runner instead of a square quilt. I used black solid fabric for the sashing and binding.
I quilted it with pretty multi-colored variegated thread in a water-like horizontal meander design.
Can you see that Yogi got too hot sleeping in his bed on my sewing table and decided to lay instead on the cooler laminate tabletop!
Look at that cute little pink belly!!
I found an awesome black batik with whales and dolphin on it for the backing. So the whole thing looks very tropical to me!!
I am giving this as a Christmas gift to a couple who loves the beach and is decorating their apartment in beachy colors and accessories!!
And with the temps we’ve had here in northern Virginia the last few days…
it feels hotter than the beach here!!!
Last night we had a really bad storm and the power went out. It didn’t come back on until 5:30 tonight. Reallllly long hot day.
Cell phones dead, so sat in car with AC on to charge them. All land lines here are still down…internet just came back on… so I’m posting this quickly in hopes it all holds out a bit longer!!
Hope you are having a better weekend in your area!!
