The beginnings of another little quilt

This one is Little Red from Nelson, Carrie - Schnibbles times two

You'll notice that my fabrics are totally different from the ones in the pattern.  I never make anything in knitting, crocheting, or sewing that is exactly like a pattern.  My curiosity always leads me to use other fabrics or yarns.  And you know how easily I get bored, so why do something the way it's already been done?

These are early days here.  I think I can finish up the blocks today.  My sewing hasn't improved unfortunately.  I'm afraid this is as good as it's ever going to get.  We have a few blocks that look wonky to me, but not terribly so, and I do have lots of fabric if I need to substitute a block.  But I'm having a grand time playing, and I'm never entering anything in any competition, so it's all fine with me.  The Hubbo likes what I do, not that he's any judge of my abilities. 

And that's my story and I'm sticking to it!

Scrabblequeen - I kinda like it too.  I sewed the first row together and by golly, most of those little points came together.  5 more rows to go and then sew the entire thing together.  Then I have to pick out a border or two and such.  I really really like doing this.

LivvyLove - I love to use different color schemes than what was originally used.
