November Picnic circa 1930's


It's time for my November Schnibbles quilt photo. This one really was supposed to be done two weeks ago, and I got side-tracked. Big surprise there!
So I chose to make this Schnibbles pattern "Picnic", in 1930's repros. These are my all time favorite fabric style. I love so many it is hard to choose, but this is the one I always turn to. I cannot quit the 30's- they speak to me in a way I cannot describe. I just love the repros!

I also changed couple of things in the finished top. There are four white corner squares instead of pieced blocks. I could admit I got tired of making the little devils, but really I want to applique some flowers in those blocks instead. Applique is really becoming something I love in every quilt now--watch for more patterns in applique!

So here it is. I love it and I hope you do too!! Click on the button on the right for the "A Year of Schnibbles" Parades!

I used 30's repro too! don't you love the look it gives whatever you are piecing! Excellent idea on the applique!

Great idea for the change in the corner blocks.

Thanks ladies! It was not an easy choice to do this in the 30's prints-- I had too many other cute charm squares that would have been sweet too. I am so glad I used these though-I love what everyone did with their Picnic quilts.
