Vintage Schnibbles - Make Mine Ruby
Thanks to a mention of it on Jennifer's blog Seams Crazy, I am joining my first Another Year of Schnibbles (AYOS), a quilt-along co-hosted by blog authors Sinta Renee and Amy Smart. Read about it on their blogs, Pink Pincushion and A Quilting Life.
The pattern for this month's Schnibble quilt is Hat Trick, which I purchased from Miss Rosie's Quilt Co and downloaded a few minutes later - I love downloadable patterns!
Ruby by Moda, which I described in this post, was my fabric of choice.
The pattern suggested using two charm packs and additional fabric, but since I only had one charm pack, I decided to go with the option of Amy Butler's Lark (Souvenir in Persimmon) for the center square and for the binding as well. I featured a green fabric with a light yellow dot (can't remember the name of it!) for the other solids and also for the inner border.
I will hang the little quilt in my sewing room, which doubles as a guest bedroom. On the bed are two of my Mom's old pillowcases. I pulled one of the pillows off the bed to show how beautifully the Ruby fabric blends.
I had fun with this one and definitely want to join in for next month!
