Gentle Art

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.


  1. Your Gentle Art is bright and cheerful. I love the pinks and blues. Happy quilting.

  2. It looks great! I always plan to get mine quilted also, so far that hasn't happened for me. Maybe next month?

  3. I haven't seen Sakura Park in a quilt yet and I love it! I don't participate in BOM and I still haven't quilted mine. ;)

  4. I love the fun colors... I don't think it looks too busy at all! Thanks for being in the parade!
