My version of Gentle Art for this month’s Schnibbles parade was made using two charm packs of Sakura Park, by Sentimental Studios for Moda. This month, I followed the pattern directions and didn’t make any modifications.
It’s a little bit busy for me. In my opinion, it would look better if I used solid white for the block backgrounds. This pattern was pretty easy to make and I will probably make it again in different fabrics.
When I set my goal to complete a charm pack quilt each month this year, I envisioned actually completing the entire quilt – including quilting and binding. That hasn’t happened any month so far, so I’m guessing that wasn’t a realistic goal. I am getting the tops completed, but at some point I’m going to have to spend some time quilting. I figure I’ll have time to do that once the Blogger Girl Block of the Month quilt is finished. I should be finished with the monthly blocks this weekend and the alternate blocks should be done next weekend. Then it will just be a matter of sewing the rows together and adding the borders. I will be sending the BGBOM quilt out to be quilted since it’s too big for me to do on my home machine.
