August Schnibbles Complete

It is done! My August Another Year of Schnibbles Canasta Quilt. I am such a boring machine quilter! I just quilted along the diagonals of the baskets and sashing. It reminds me of basket weave, so I thought it would work and be quick.

My LQS was out of the wavy stripe I have in the blocks, but they did have this black and white stripe that I used for the binding.

Striped bindings are a trend I like!

This backing I picked up for $3 a yard back in June and I am kicking myself for not buying all they had, but my mom was the smart one that bought it all! Now, I am looking forward to the September Schnibbles design!


  1. Your quilt is beautiful and your quilting is NOT boring!! I just finished my Canasta quilt too. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Love the finished Canasta quilt! The fabrics in your baskets are bright and cheery... and I'm a big fan of the striped binding. I'm partial to cross hatch quilting... so that makes two of us boring!

  3. I LOVE the quilting on this one. Such a classic design with the baskets deserves a classic design with the quiltng. You nailed this one just right. And ya, the striped binding, awesome.

  4. Your quilt is fabulous; love the quilting.

  5. Your quilt is beautiful! Qw just need more time to quilt!

  6. Beautifully quilted. I love diagonal lines there is just something about them that balances the quilt. Congratulations on your finish. Thanks for sharing. Stopping by from Crazy Mom Finish Up Friday. Marie (mlismore@optusnet.com.au)

  8. Lovely Canasta and the quilting is awesome!
