Don Quixote’s Honey

I am thrilled with my version of the June Schnibbles pattern, Dulcinea!

Instead of a pieced outer border I used 3 ½” wide strips of yardage in the multi-colored floral from Honey, Honey by Kate Spain.  I chickened out of mitering the corners of the outer border.  Instead, I was careful to cut the side strips on the length of grain and the top and border strips across the grain so all the flowers would be facing the same direction.
I pieced the backing with some of the leftover layer cake squares.  I still have quite a few left for another project down the road.
One of these days, I’ll actually get around to quilting my Schnibbles projects!
