I started my Picnic Schnibbles quilt top!

Hi everyone! I got my Schnibbles Picnic pattern today
and the two charm packs that I'm using to make it.
 I decided to use Simply Abundance.

I've been just loving that material from a distance
and decided to finally order the charm packs and a bit of yardage to make this quilt.
I love it. I'm going to order a bit more yardage of some of the colors.
The red and the aqua are my favorite. I have to get more of it.

I started sewing, cutting and trimming the squares to make the blocks.
This pattern is a lot more work then the previous Schnibbles pattern that I've made.
I worked on it for over three hours.
All I have done is the baskets half square triangles sewn and trimmed.
Lots and lots and lots of trimming. My arm hurts.

It doesn't help that I got the H1N1 vaccine this week in my left arm and it really hurts.
It's been three days and my arm is still very sore. But hopefully it will protect me from getting it.

Well, I hope you are all well. I will keep working on this project this evening.
I have to work in the morning, so I don't want to stay up too late.
Have a good night.

Hugs Ariane

Good luck with your Schnibbles! I just received my pattern yesterday, figured out how I want to use the fabrics and will start the drawing of lines and sewing today.
Have a lovely weekend.

Picnic will be awesome in Simple Abundance! Don't overdo it though, it could set you back.

Can't wait to see it finished.

Hope your arm feels better soon.

LOL Ariane,
I can't believe how many hours went into making Picnic..I had it all cut when I arrived at quilt camp and spent the better part of two days on it! My wrist hurts big time!
