Leap Year Schnibble

 Not New Year as I have referred to it a couple of times. A simple quilt that I made simpler by using  two10" strips from a jelly roll that I won at the Fat Quarterly retreat and instead of cutting the squares down to 2 1/4" I left them at 2 1/2" squares. I then used two creams for the sashing as I didn't have enough of either fabric. The wadding was a scrap from my scrap pile and the backing was a remnant still loaded on my long arm from the Siblings Together quilt. The wadding had about 2 inches left once I'd quilted the quilt and the backing about 5 inches. That's what I call economical. :)

I bought a club pack of quilting designs from Anne Bright's website and I used one of them on this quilt and I love it. It's like filigree iron work.

The fabric is Santorini by Moda.
