I really liked this month’s Schnibble. I thought it was cute and with it having stars I gravitated toward patriotic fabrics again. I just can’t help it! So I pulled out some charm packs that I had been saving. Flag Day Farm and American Primer both by Moda. I got started and soon realized that I wanted it to be bigger. Not bigger stars but more stars. I had two American Primer charm packs and one Flag Day Farm so I hopped on the internet and ordered another Flag Day Farm charm pack. I think the two lines look great together. I made as many stars as I could with the charm packs. I ended up with 23. I am a huge fan of the sawtooth star. It is my favorite block of all time and there are so many great variations on it. As I looked at the blocks, this orientation wasn’t doing it for me.
But if I set it on point it became the sawtooth star that I love and it appealed to me more.
So that’s what I did as I put my 23 blocks together into a quilt. I set them all on point and I am so happy with the result.
It measures 53” across and 32” top to bottom. I am debating about putting some borders on it. I made it to hang above the couch in my family room. I bought the cream fabric that I used for the outer and corner triangles from a local quilt shop that is closing because the owner is retiring. I bought enough to use for the back too. I also bought a pretty red for the binding while I was there.
I can’t wait to see what the new Schnibble is for February!
