Schnibbles & StuffSchnibbles, those cute small quilts, by Carrie Nelson of Miss Rosie's Quilt Co, are popping up all over the Land of Blog thanks especially to A Year of Schnibbles. Carrie has been designing and publishing Schnibbles patterns for a few years now and while I own a pile of patterns I've only made two. Last year I used a Jelly Roll and made a larger version of "X-Rated" and I also made "State Fair". I joined A Year of Schnibbles and now I'm excitedly committed to making everyone that's selected & featured. When I posted my list of January goals Swooze left a comment asking what I do with my Schnibbles quilts - well use small Schnibbles type quilts as table toppers, on the back of a chair, on a small quilt rack, rolled up with others in a basket, etc.
Would you please leave a comment and share what YOU do with your Schnibbles quilts??? I, as well as others, would love to learn about your ideas.
Speaking of Schnibbles, yesterday I spent all day in my sewing room - literally all day - I walked in at approximately 10:00am and shut everything off at midnight! Truly a BLISSFUL day. :-)
I started and finished January's Schnibbles pattern - Madeline. I used Rouenneries and I'm glad it's done - I did not enjoy making this quilt - nothing against the pattern - it was the charm packs - I didn't have enough reds. Ugh!!!! I cut a strip off my backing fabric and managed to make it work. It's finished - enough said. WooHoo!!! I hoping to quilt it today or tomorrow and call it REALLY DONE!!! LOL
Saturday I received the package of fabrics I needed for borders on three "Piece of Cake" (Thimble Blossoms) quilt tops so I also spent yesterday adding borders - 2 with Simple Abundance & 1 with Cotton Blossoms. I plan to quilt these later this week and they, too, will be REALLY DONE! :-)
Have I told you lately how much I enjoy your visit? Well, I do so come again and come often.
