This months pick for Another Year of Schnibbles hosted by Sinta and Sherri is a brand spankin' new pattern by Miss Rosie.
It's named :
|Isn't it pretty? I love the French General fabrics!|

|This is also a Miss Rosie pattern from 2006.|
It has the same overall effect of the circles and looks like it's constructed in a similar way,
but with a few more triangles.
I knew if I made that cute little Mercerie, I would never make Quiet Time, so I dove into my scraps and got busy cutting and sewing. A lot of cutting and sewing!
|Each block requires a light and dark Half Square Triangle,|
and two hour glasses using the same two fabrics as the HST's.
|Arrange them like this. I always laid mine out with the "lighter" HST at the top right,|
although I'm not sure it makes a difference.
Obviously I ignored the directional fabrics--I was on a mission to get this baby finished!
|Four of these blocks makes a circle.|
|Or you could make a cross.|
|Oooh...you could make zigzags too!|
|Even after they are sewn together, it's a tight squeeze on the wall.|
No "beauty" shot--it rained every time I tried to get outside for a good photo!
Hmmmm...that Schnibble is pretty cute--I think four of those blocks set end to end would make a cool table runner...there may a Mercerie in my future after all...
