Sweet Spot Schnibble and a Confession of sorts

I’ve been playing with this collection of charms (Home Town by Sweetwater for Moda)for awhile first working on this Schnibble (Sweet Spot) using a common background fabric. (Just in case you don’t know about Carrie of Miss Rosie’s Quilt Co who designs these wonderful little patterns click on the Schnibble link and go have a visit!)

I really couldn’t believe myself but when I made the flying geese for this project..and I mean all the flying geese for the border, and I was laying them out on my design wall I realized that I’d made them wrong..where was my mind I ask??

here’s my excuse



sometimes Liam likes to hang out with Grandma in her studio..he is such a handsome distraction!

Thankfully I had more charms so I made the geese over again and correctly the second time and the wrong geese?

have become the star points in a slightly changed version of the Madeline Schnibble pattern. I like this little quilt so much that I’m thankful for that “little” mistake!

    Shirley, when I was making the flying geese units for the first schnibble I made them with the geese in the background colour instead of gray.

    thanks for telling me what was wrong. duh!
    (in my defense, I thought the photo showed the
    mistake, no wonder I couldn’t find it. LOL If I had
    only looked a little harder, I maybe would have
    Like everyone else, love the pattern and what you did
