I've finished the top using Schnibble's Full House pattern. It took most of 2 charm packs of 1862 Battle Hymn of the Republic fabric from Barbara Brackman for the houses and checkerboards and several fat eights of Jo Morton shirtings for the borders and sky behind the houses.
Last week I purchased a yard of the more subdued brown strip to make a bias binding for the finished quilt.
I had to be scrappy with the fat eights as well.
I love all the houses. I think it would be fun to make another with fussy cut inhabitants at each door for a grandchild.
Whoops! I really tried not to have a checkerboard piece line up with a marching doorway. Just noticed this one.
My first bite of "schnibbles" was really fun.
