Two Bits, Four Bits, Six Bits a Dollar
(dating myself? LOL)

I simple couldn't help myself - I had to do it. Another completed Schnibbles flimsy - this one is called Two Bits and once again the big old copy cat that I am I used Old Primrose Inn just as Carrie did. This would be adorable in a larger version with very scrappy 4 patches.

I hope you're having a wonderful week and enjoying your needle and thread!

Thanks for stopping by - come again soon.

In Friendship!

Sweet! I had not even paid much attention to these little patterns until a friend was working on on at retreat this weekend. They are so great! Miss Rosie is the BEST!

Very pretty, Darlene!!!

Kim said...

Good use of those charms! I have two packs too, and I was wondering which Schnibbles I'd want to use them in. BTW, any idea why 25 cents is called two bits? That never did make any "cents" to me--LOL! Seriously, though?

Vicky said...

Great quilt. I love that fabric - and don't have any. I just picked up a Schnibbles pattern this week. If the work stress ever settles down .....

Carrie said...

What are you trying to do? Make more Schnibbles than I have? It's a Schnibble-palooza over here!

By the way... when the quilt was named, I looked up the origin of the term. This is for Kim...

Two bits is a colloquial expression in the United States for 25 cents. It dates from colonial days, when a common unit of currency was the Spanish milled dollar. As a way of making change, these dollars were often cut into eight pie-slice shaped pieces, called bits. Hence, two bits being a quarter dollar.

Love the fabric line.. I think it could be something for me... is it enough pinks in it..lol...
Love your new Schnibble flimsy.... Hmmm. I have started to collect flimsies.. do you think it is addictive?
Have a wonderful weekend!

Very pretty little quilt. This would make a wonderful larger quilt too.

Oh, Darlene -- I love it! VERY VERY CUTE!! I guess I'm dating myself too, because I remember the two bits, four bits . . . (giggle)! Nice job!

Yvonne said...

Love it!

Carol said...

Love it. You beat me to it getting this quilt done. I just cut out my fabrics for this quilt a couple of days ago. I'm also using Old Primrose charms. Your quilt turned out just beautiful.
