Schnibbles...and the Missing Fabric

Schnibble: noun A scrap of fabric; a leftover bit of cloth; a small piece. The word has a German origin and is found primarily in German settlements in the Midwest.

It's just way hot here...way too hot to "reverse sew" four rows on my Postage Stamp quilt to take out the ripple of fabric that appeared..and it just plain bugs me to much to leave I need to wait for the next few days of cool weather to's on hold for now.

Needing a bit of relaxation tonight, I decided to go down to the studio and pull out a little something to do...and the Joy Luck pattern from Miss Rosie's Quilt Co. seemed to fit the need perfectly. Something small, not complicated...and I just love how beautiful the Schnibbles come together.

Where's the charm squares I bought to make it with?  I know I bought Kate Spain's Central Park a while back to do this project...they're hiding.  I've cleaned off the ironing table...and still can't find them.  I cleaned down the sewing table, breaking the bunny as I cleaned, and they're still missing.  I organized the cutting table...boy, the studio is looking cleaner...but still no charm packs.

At the rate I'm going, I'll have a perfectly clean studio before I find those charm packs....
