Schnibble Dulcinea

Here is my version of Schnibble pattern, "Dulcinea."  I added thin sashing and corner post along with a changing the borders.   I honestly thought I'd have time before the parade of Schnibbles to custom quilt it.  Well...it just isn't going to happen so I present to you my unfinished top that was nicely placed outside on the grass for a photo shoot.  Yep...less than 30 second photo shoot before this happened.

 This week has been filled with lots of exciting things to include this!  It's really happening!  Our land is being cleared in preparation to build our new home.  That's serious equipment taking out some big trees!  Quite impressive!!!

The quilt is wonderful and of course the kitty had to try it out. That is a beautiful piece of land and so nice to have such a nicely wooded area around you.
