Snippets quilt top

This week I finished my Snippets quilt top. It was going to be dutch pinwheels, but I liked how all the diamonds lined up better when I laid it out.

I used two Turnovers, plus a few more pieces that I cut from different fabric lines when I needed some more color.

I couldn't resist the stained glass window shot! And go look at more finishes this week at sew & tell.




I also broke up with my preschool this week. After three visits, I keep tallying the things that were better about the school that my older two had attended. I called the director on Wednesday and there was an opening available. His first day was Thursday afternoon! He went right to the paint easel and made a monster - they didn't have big paints available at the other school. He said he loves it.

The major difference is that he's in the afternoon class. I'm already planning on going to an early showing of New Moon at the end of November! Yes, we love his new school.

Love the top! I love the way you put it together, and I love the scrappy color groupings. And the stained glass shot, too. :-)

And yay for being in a preschool you love! Alas, one more year before my kids head off.... not that I'm counting!

What a great quilt top!! I love what you did with the pattern. And you know how much I love American Jane. So cute!!

And good job following your gut with the preschool. I had my little guy signed-up with a school I was totally unfamiliar with because of our move, but after one visit I just knew I should wait and find something else. Hopefully I will!
