Joy Luck Schnibbles

My Year of Schnibbles quilt, Joy Luck, is done and quilted! I love, love, love this pattern. It's a variation of a coin quilt with a little twist. A bit tedious sewing 4 little squares to each of those rectangles, but quilting is sometimes (many times) tedious. I read that someone in the group got her whole family to help with the pressing and the trimming. Why didn't I think of that?
Here's a close up of the quilting. I really like how the border came out. I did just 3 wavy lines - unmarked - and it was easy-peasy.

Most of the fabric is from Hunky Dory. I used one of the big prints on the back and just love this print. Makes it a reversible little table topper.

A peek at our hummingbird population - lots of them! We have one red throated male who sits on the hook and guards the feeder for himself. This poor little bird is trying to get a snack while he's away. Better make it quick!
