Although I though I was finished with the Schnibbles quilt along, this month Sinta and Sherri gave us the option to make any Schnibbles pattern. It just so happens that one of the quilts on this year's "to do" list is a Schnibbles pattern, Cindy Lou Who. So I found myself Schnibbling again with a couple charm packs of Paris Flea Market, by Three Sisters.
I think my problem with the quilt top is that I drew the pattern out on graph paper and colored it in using colored pencils. The result was a design I loved, but with solid color against solid color, not pattern against pattern as in the actual quilt. My eye seems to need negative space and a less busy composition. I think I would have liked this quilt better if I replaced most of the neutrals in the snowball and half-snowball blocks with tone-on-tone or solid fabrics. Lesson learned.
