Winter White

Figgy Pudding.eight 1/2 yd. cuts purchased from Quilt Taffy, The Sproutz Store, and Sew Inspired.extra fabric to play with.maybe another against the red background.72 flying geese. that's alot. my ruler made things easier. although i used yardage in lieu of charms. if you buy yardage for the background. you can make 4 flying geese with 1 charm. by using a 6" background square with a 4-1/2" geese square. but if you look closely you will find i used 2 4-1/2" squares to make what i am calling a 3-1/2" faux-facing-geese.

I love how your Schnibbles turned out with Figgy Pudding, and the way you fussy cut the inner border - very cool! I'm a huge fan of Eleanor Burns' rulers too - they are my favorite!

Sheila said...

Definitely the prettiest September Schnibble I've seen. Love the fabric. I've enjoyed looking around your blog too-- you are very creative! And a wonderful quilt-holder/knitter niece to boot.

I love the choise of fabric/colours and the pattern. I am especially crazy about the border with the circles - it creates a wonderful effect. Bravo.
