Vintage Schnibbles - Key Lime Butterfly
"Gentle Art" is the name of this PDF Schnibbles pattern from Miss Rosie's Quilt Co; however, I am naming my quilt Key Lime Butterfly for the touches of lime green among the prominent black, white, and grey and for the snippets of butterflies on one of the fabrics. I am joining the monthly Parade of Schnibbles, sponsored by Sinta of Pink Pincushion and Sherri of A Quilting Life.
I enjoyed working with this pattern; it came together with greater ease for me than Hat Trick from last month's parade. I liked this pattern well enough that I plan to make it again! The little objects are supposed to represent spools, as in spools of thread, but my husband called them bowties.
Two sets of charm squares and about a yard and a half for the border, binding, and backing are all that is required. I used a stash I've been collecting (and love!) for about a year instead of charm squares. The quilt top still lacks a binding, and I might add another light border. When complete, it will measure approximately 30" X 30".
