Ta-Da!
(gotta love the ta-da moments - LOL)

Pieces/parts have now been assembled!

Squaring it up!
Sweet block!
Can you say Spring????

Wait for it!!! :-)
Wait,
Wait,
Here it comes! :-)
And, now the specifics! This is a Schnibbles pattern (State Fair) by Carrie of Miss Rosie's Quilt Co (yes, again - snicker) and I used a Jelly Roll (Maypole by April Cornell). I had plans to make it bigger but once I got started and saw it coming together I decided it would be best to keep it small (approx 36" x 36"). I think it's going to look wonderful on my kitchen table this Spring with a sweet pitcher full of flowers - I can see it in my mind's eye and I'm super excited! Carrie's pattern suggests an adorable piano key border but I had this yardage I needed to use. LOL And, did you notice my 'red peeper'? It shows just enough and covers some of the off-white background fabric. I love it! Peg at Happy In Quilting uses 'peepers' in many of her quilts and I've loved the effect so I decided it was time to do the same. :-)
That's it for today - thanks for stopping by - come again soon!
In Friendship!

LOVE that no-fuss cutting and measuring method - isn't Miss Carrie the best! Great quilt, Darlene - I can see it now - and a pitcher of pink lemonade to boot!
Cheers!

Beautiful!

Karen said...

Love it!

Carrie said...

I love it! It's happy and cheery and definitely beautiful! And the border you chose is perfect for it! I love the red peeper too ~ it is the perfect little touch. The fact that it is red... well, that's what makes it perfect. (I used one of those in Ruby Slippers.)

So what are you making tomorrow? :)

Mary on Lake Pulaski said...

It really looks like you started with the border as the focus fabric - looks perfect the the blocks. Love the peeper too. It adds a lot to the look.

Stephanie said...

Perfect size and oh yes, pretty flowers. No flowers in Ohio yet...still waiting.

It's great... wonderful.... wow. You did such a great job and I would not mind having it for my own. Guess you wouldn't part with it. Just teasing.

This is a great quilt.. I have been looking at the pattern ... you have convinced me to get it.
thank you for sharing

Teresa said...

It looks great! Thanks for showing us how it goes together. I was wondering what you were going to do with those odd shaped blocks.

Ginger Patches said...

Oh big sis it's soooo beautiful!! I have some of those charms sitting around and now I want to go use them!!! I love it in that pattern--just perfect :)

Linda said...

Just gorgeous, but I have to disagree with Pat, if it were to live anywhere else other than on your kitchen table it would have to be in my home.....*s*
