Madeline Schnibbles for January Top Done!

Here she is...a very Valentine's Day Madeline Schnibbles.

I would have been happier if the flying geese were the same size as my Eleanor Burns ruler (as they were for Winter White) so the trimming was more of a pain with this one. I wound up trimming each one before I sewed it so that I didn't have to face all the trimming at once. The stars really went together well and then turning them into blocks was even easier. Again trimming of the blocks was necessary, but I got into a ryhthm and it went well. I should have stopped and left the border for tomorrow because I rushed it a bit and a little unsatisfied with it, but not enough that I am unsewing. This original pattern looks much different than this one due to the fabrics but I like it all the same. Can't wait to see the Parade of Schnibbles coming up in a few weeks! This completes everything I had planned to get done in January! Yipee, up next is my cousin Tara's wedding quilt (Night and Day by Eleanor Burns) I think.
