Orange Sorbet

This month's Schnibble was Joy Luck. I had some orange fat quarters and decided to use them on this project.



I made my rectangles larger and used my Go! to cut them and the 2.5" black squares. I also put mine together sideways 'cuz that's how I roll (quilt) lol.


It's hard to tell in this picture but I used bright orange thread to quilt it. I love how the orange thread pops out.



The back, binding, and sashing are all the same fabric. It looks like an orange camouflage.

I actual managed to get this one posted in my shop.

January's Schnibble was Madeline....


I was way too busy in January to even think of making it. This month I had some time to whip up a smaller version.



I skipped the setting triangles because I always struggle with them and I didn't feel like fussing with it right now. With this fabric and layout, Madeline isn't even recognizable. Leave it to me to take a perfectly good pattern and change it all up.



I will use this little beauty on a small side table as a table topper. Perfect size for the top of a little filing cabinet I have. I have officially made a Schnibble each month for the Year of Schnibbles. I feel much better now :)

Love Orange Sorbet~the dark fabric is fantastic with the orange. It's good that you can take a pattern and change it up and come out with something that is still nice. I'm a pattern follower and haven't really gotten to the point where I go out on my own.

Orange sorbet is just beautiful and it is a break from some of the others we see. Truly unique!! So glad you got to work on your January one. I know how you feel about being caught up, it is a good feeling.

Fun to see how you changed the patterns around :o) And "catching up" does bring so much relief! After submitting the book proposal the first time, I finished two projects that had bogged down. What a weight off my mind :o)
