Schnibblemania

*#4 - Open Season with Botany
As I was searching for layer cakes to make the Big Schnibbles quilts I kept going back to Botany - the colors were intriguing to me. Again, a bit outside my box. Dipping my toe in the water to work with fabrics outside my comfort zone has been fun during this challenge. However, I do plan to stay on dry land - I do like my comfort zone. LOL

We're a quarter of the way through - are you getting bored? I couple of weeks ago I showed Plan C & Little Red - I don't want to bore you and repeat them but if you want to see them again I'll put them in one blog post (Little Red has it's borders now - LOL).
*
It's very difficult to express via the written word how much I appreciate your comments and compliments - they mean the world to me. You'll never know how much fun I've had working through this silly self challenge and sharing it with YOU has been fun, as well. Thank you!

In Friendship!

Wow, a beauty for sure! That book has some wonderful quilts to choose from!

Kaaren said...

Although the colors are out of my comfort zone as well, Darlene, I absolutely love the design and can certainly appreciate the work that went into it.

Today is hump day so it's downhill from here, my friend and I know that you'll be picking up speed during the home stretch.

You go girl!

Screen Door said...

Beautiful piece! Question for you.... Are these going together pretty easily? I have a Nostaglia layer cake and want to try the piece you made for the book.

Carol said...

Huisvlyt said...

I love seeing all of these charm packs used in different Schnibbles. This is a fresh and pretty quilt.

Béa said...

Quilter Kathy said...

I think it's great fun to see your new quilt show! You're amazing!

Magnolia Bay Quilts said...

I'm not bored at all -- I love seeing these quilts. I can look at the fabrics on-line, but it's hard to tell what they'll look like in a project until you see them all together. And all of your quilts have been so pretty!

Deb said...

Beautiful quilts and I'm envious of how quickly you're getting them done! I have too much yard and flower garden work to do during the summer, and we're helping two neighbors with their yard mowing, so it doesn't leave much time in the evening to quilt, which is my TRUE passion. Won't be long though and we'll be facing the winter again and I'll get more time to quilt. Keep them coming, love to see the finished product.

Terry said...

It's beautiful Darlene! I have a jelly roll that was a gift and is way out of my comfort zone. I'm actually looking forward to using it! :0)

Jackie said...

Love your quilts and love the pictures- show as many as you want!

Lori said...

Geez, I am behind already and I would think reading would be faster than making a quilt top!! LOL
This one and oz are not your usual style but they are very fun!! Nice work!

Cindy said...

Darlene, I just love seeing your beautiful creations - no matter how often or what stage they're in.

And, it gives me inspirations. You're such a dear lady.

These colors, too, are out of my comfort zone. But I have found since my son got married, almost two years ago, I can go out of that comfort zone "a tad easier" because our DIL likes colors that are TOTALLY out of my comfort zone.

Live and Learn I guess.

CaraQuilts said...

LOVE this one! I never would have grabbed this line but now I want to pick some up!
Seriously I think you're doing a great Public Service...or maybe its a credit card service as now it wants to be used.

Yvette said...

Ahhhhhhh, another great one.

Are you going to quilt all of these??? Yikes!!!

Wendy said...

That's way out of my comfort zone. It's fun for me to see the fabric done up as we would never get these in our stores. I'm not bored at all, keep them coming.

Carol said...

I so need to make Open Season. You're right it looks great with Botany. Good for you venturing out of your comfort zone. Heck no, I'm not bored, I look forward it seeing your quilts each day.

Debi said...

Wow, that is gorgeous. I love the Botony line and have a jelly roll of it that I need to use.

Michelle said...

GO DARLENE!!!!

Laura said...

Oooh, I really like this one. Those fabrics are out of my current comfort zone too, but they are perfect for that pattern.

John'aLee said...

What a beauty!

Sweet P said...

You have been busy in the sewing room. Great job on the quilts.

Stitched With Prayer said...

Wow Darlene, you are on a Schnibble roll and they are all wonderful. Like you, I have a comfort zone that I don't step out of too often but every now and then, something completely out of character will grab me and I just have to try it. It is always rewarding to try something new and have a really great time with it.

Nicole said...

What a Schnibblefest! I think this one is terrific. The chocolate and coral pink are dynamite together.

Quilt Hollow said...

Botany isn't a line that I would have in my stash but seeing it done up sure makes my eyes open to the possibilities. Open Season is delightful with this line! Job well done you!

Cathy Burk said...

I love, love, love this challenge you have done! I am working on this very quilt right now (Open Season) in the Tweet Tweet fabric line. I have my Botany layer cakes all ready for use in another large Schnibble. Oh, I do love those Schnibbles, big and little. Thank you for sharing...keep 'em coming!!!

Quilt Nut said...

AnnieO said...

Jaaaaaazzzzyyyyy! Love it. No, not bored. Can't say as I have ever been bored when visiting you! Even when you lost your mojo last year you still entertained us :)

Karen said...

I love this!! I don't think I've seen this line before (at least not in our stores). Love the white. That's going to be my next thing, it looks so fresh. Can't wait till tomorrow.

Allie said...

OH MY - those colors are dead center in my comfort zone and I LOVE this quilt! Good job! Your geese are all flying so straight, they're well-disciplined, lol. I'm loving your quilt show, Darlene!

Judy said...

I haven't looked at your blog for a couple of days and .... WOW!! I love your versions of the Schnibble quilts. Good job!

call me crazy said...

I like this one too! Hmm, and I normally wouldn't have given the fabric a second look. Great job! And yes, I'd love to see the other ones again too. :-)

Mary on Lake Pulaski said...

I think you chose the perfect fabric for this one Darlene! I really like it a lot!!
And yes, please show red with the border!

Lynn said...

Repeat away!!! I love seeing quilts!

QuiltSue said...

A really interesting thing for me is seeing you use colours that would be out of my comfort box too, and finding that I really love some of them.

miniaturequilter said...
