May Schnibbles

  This month was a free choice for Schnibbles and I chose Hot Cross, which I've loved in every colour scheme I've seen it in. I dallied around waiting to order my pattern, which still isn't here, luckily a friend gave me the cutting instructions and I was able to put the blocks together. My Schnibbles Times Two book came with Le Jardin's Block 6 so it all worked out since Hot Cross is in the book.

All I can saw is I LOVE this pattern, especially in this line, which is Aster Manor by 3 Sisters for Moda. I desperately wish I could have made it bigger, still using the smaller block size, but it was not in the cards this month so it's going on my watch list, hopefully when the line goes on sale I'll be able to find it cheap somewhere and can make a bigger version.
Mason really liked it too, you can see him in the picture trying to decide how long it will be before he can steal it.


I'm off to work on my Cha Cha Challenge pinwheel quilt, and the placemats.

So far, I've been able to resist Astor Manor, but I've not seen it in person, which is usually my downfall. All the projects that I've seen online using that family of fabrics are wonderful, yours included.

For some reason, I always call that pattern Hot Buns instead of Hot Cross..... I don't know why....but it's going to be the first pattern I make from Schnibbles Times Two.

Hi Cara ~ It's beautiful!

Hot Cross with Aster Manor is a terrific choice! I love this quilt so much that now you're going to have me scratching through my fabric to see if I have more Aster Manor! But like you... I sure would love to use the smaller block and make a bigger quilt. :)

I love Aster Manor. There are a lot of places that have it on sale right now. I just bought a kit to make a Christmas Hot Cross.
