A TOTAL FINISH-----

I am happy to say that I have gotten this month's Schnibbles completely finished----
This month's Roundabout (Schnibbles) is all done---even the hand quilting part and the buttons--SEE--
I am "proud" of myself in the fact that this quilt is made with "leftovers" from 2 other charm packs--
one was Baskets of Flowers by Mary Engelbreit and the other fabrics are leftovers from Objects of Desire by Sandy Gervais--plus the background and backing I had---so I only bought the jumbo rick rack and the inner border and the binding fabrics---and I really tried to use something from my "stash"--but sometimes you just don't have "it"!!!!  I did have lots of red buttons--so--after working real hard on matching the blocks--I covered up the "intersections" with buttons in the end--and now nobody can see all my hard work!!!!!

I nearly had my last finish for March done--but did not quite make it--but they will be finished tomorrow for sure--just lots of button trims to sew on and they will be done---then I can "play" for a day or two before we start all over again!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Hugs, Di

Your Schnibbles is so cute. You've placed the buttons in a very clever way!

Love your Roundabout! The jumbo red ric~rac is a beautiful touch! It makes it such a fun quilt.

Never fails...once you finish your projects for the month another month comes along with a new to-do list lol.
