Here it is, Schnibbles Picnic, that was no picnic for me.
NO KIDDING!!!! These Scnibbles quilts are like a thorn in my flesh!
They are cute, they are snappy, they are hard for me!
BUT I'M LEARNING!!! AND IMPROVING!!!
After receiving my pattern for the month of November, I was determined that this one was going to be my best! Surely, I thought, if I just take my time, cut with precision, and sew carefully, then I will have the best little Picnic quilt ever.
sighSeven attempts could not produce one single good block. 7!!!! While that is a perfect number in Biblical things, it is definitely not in my sewing room!
So, I jotted a frustrating email to the gal in charge, over at PinkPincushion, letting her know that for my sewing sanity (I was feeling like a quilting imposter) I was going to quit sewing on November's quilt and wait for December's, when I could begin all my positive thinking with fresh gusto.
The encourager that she is, she zipped me a quick response:
So... December's will be the best! LOL
Oh! Look how cute this old fabric I had worked for the sashings and border!!!
