After being reminded the other day about January's Le Petite Project I figured I could at least cut pieces while I still had a house full of kids visiting. The project for the month is a Schnibbles pattern called, "Mon Ami." I'm going to use Moda Remembrance for mine. After cutting out all the pieces I couldn't wait to see how a block would come together; then another, and another. In between cooking, cleaning, laundry and visiting I would try to steal away a bit of time for some piecing. (quilting is such a great stress reliever)
Two errors were found on the pattern I own. You may want to check your pattern before you cut out your background pieces. You only need 109 2.5" squares not 134.
Also, the pattern leaves out that you will need to stitch one dark 2.5" to the matching light 2.5" to make two half-sq triangles that complete the block's star points.
This is a beauty of a pattern plenty of 1/2 square triangle fun!
