July - Year of Schnibbles

My Joy Luck Schnibbles started as a quilt.  Truly it did.  Not the tablecloth project I considered a few weeks ago.  With the sofa cushion project still on my plate, I figured I better stick with Carrie’s pattern using some of my stash. 

Good plan and it was going great, til I got to the sashing.  Unfortunately I could not get it to lay nicely.  No matter what I did it just looked bad.  After three attempts I finally gave up and threw it in the trash.

Very f.r.u.s.t.r.a.t.i.n.g. 

It just wasn’t meant to be I guess.  :-(   So I pouted.

But just a day or two and then I decided it was really meant to be a pillow. :-) 

So I skipped the sashing, stippled it using some yummy variegated thread, and added a big 3” ruffle.

The color makes me want a dreamsicle.  Like a whole box.  :-)

Cute pillow! Hope both of you are doing well. Nothing much to report from us - just trying to keep cool inside. Whew! it's been hot here. Branson, MO???? Been there - done that! Never again. What a tourist trap!
