May For Me - Day 17


I worked on this month's Schnibbles - DOC - and being a little one-handed, kept it to a small piece. I used some left over 'Sophie' charms with Moda Muslin. Using the method of pairing a focus charm with the background, sew a 1/4" all the way around the outside - starch the patooties out of them - and then cut both corner-to-corners to make 3" HSTs. The middle (card trick) were trimmed to 2.5" - used a 1.5" sashing and corner stones - then the 3" HSTs used for final border. Stitch in the ditch to quilt and added some tiny buttons (Cuz I like buttons). Used halved charms for binding and to make the hanger. Now I have a new Table Topper Stand mini - that took about an hour to make.

CLOSING THOUGHT

"How fair doth Nature
Appear again!
How bright the sunbeams!
How smiles the plain!
The flow'rs are bursting
From ev'ry bough,
And thousand voices
Each bush yields now.
And joy and gladness
Fill ev'ry breast!
Oh earth!--oh sunlight!
Oh rapture blest!
Oh love! oh loved one!"
- Goethe, May Song

Sewingly Yours,
Sharon

  2. It isn't a BINGO, but progress is made
    And onto the bird, a button is laid.
    But Friday is coming and I'll be away
    Out with the Scouts, for a night and a day,
    Under the trees, oh what could be better,
    To forget about things, lined up on the letter.
    Have a great weekend!

  5. How sweet your little hanging is...I've always enjoyed that block pattern. And we must still be having similar weather ... our day reflects the sentiment of today's poem! :)

  7. Your mini looks great. I have been using the same method recently to make HSTs and am currently making a list of what size squares give what size triangles.

  9. Are all schnibbles small quilts? I've seen them talked about. I know there is a quilt along or something. But I really don't know much about them.
