This is my first foray into the world of Schnibbles. I have bought a couple of patterns in the past but never got around to making them. I've lurked about watching people taking part in the Year of Schnibbles and Le Petit so this year I decided to join in occasionally. I probably won't manage every month but I was determined to do this month's pattern as I love the Full House quilt. There are a couple of variations using these houses that I would also like to make sometime.
I used Kate Spain's lovely Good Fortune. I don't think she has done a collection that I don't like and I could quite happily make something from all of her fabrics – in fact, I have Terrain ready and waiting to turn into a Swoon and also her last Christmas line to turn into the Christmas Present quilt.
I went with all white for the sashings and borders for a couple of reasons. 1) I have a lot of white fabric sitting in my stash and 2) it stopped me procrastinating over what other colour to use!
I would like to make more small quilts – it's very satisfying and it means I can use more of the the gorgeous fabrics that are around without having to make a huge quilt. I've seen beautiful versions of Full House appearing around Blogland already and I'm looking forward to seeing more after tomorrow's parade.
