But - when I grabbed that "Another Year of Schnibbles" button in December, I was determined to get all 12 done (I've been known to sign-up for QALs and then quitting because I fall behind). So here it is...
|i.s.t.h. held by my lovely daughter Marianne. Doesn't she look happy to be doing this for her mom? :-)|
I decided to go with 2 Northcote Range charm packs for i.s.t.h. This collection really doesn't offer a whole lot in terms of "darks" or even "mediums", so I had to be a little creative. I decided to keep all the darker charms for the stars to allow them to really pop. I took me a long time to choose the background fabric for this one. Nothing I had in my stash looked really good, so I had to settle for this pink. It isn't the best, but it's not too too bad. The pieced borders took FOREVER! And I used blue fabric I had leftover from another project for the inner and outer top and bottom borders.
I can't say this was my favourite pattern to work on, but in the end, I think it looks pretty cute. And I'm really happy I finished it in February!
