A Year of Schnibbles | Pattern Ordered, Fabrics Chosen!

My next project this month is participating in Sinta and Sherri's "A Year of Schnibbles." They are leading us through a year long adventure of charm patterns called Schnibbles by Carrie Nelson of Miss Rosie's Quilting Company. They will be selecting a different pattern each month and drawing prizes along the way! If you complete your quilt before the end of the month and post it on your blog, your name goes into the drawing! Go sign up and join us. The more the merrier.

I ordered my pattern today from Quilt Taffy, one of the shops who is sponsoring the giveaways. I think she only has a few left so run over and get one if you want to participate. There are several other shops joining in and they are adding precut kits with patterns for those who want to save from selecting fabrics and dig right in to piecing. This months pattern is called Winter White.


I've taken this last week to decide what fabrics I'm using for my quilt. I knew I wanted to deviate from the fabrics the pattern called for (Glace by Moda). I've always admired the Wonderland fabrics by MoMo for Moda and managed to find a layer cake. I'll just have to cut it up into 4 sets of 5" charms when it arrives. Can't wait. I also have some fat quarters stashed away that I could include. I knew I was saving them for something!



On another note: I've been asked by a few folks to offer a tutorial of my DQS7 quilt. Stay tuned...

Happy quilting,

  2. I wanted to join in this too, but just couldn't commit. Lots of other things going on. But I am anxious to see everyone else's progress. I think it will look fabulous in Wonderland!

  9. I'm playing along, too! I know I have too much on my plate, but I couldn't resist. Your "Wonderland" will be amazing -- I am using Tula Pink's "Nest" for mine. I am excited about it!

    Good luck with the tutorial -- they're not quite as easy to put together as I had thought before working on a few! Your DQS is awesome, so I am sure it will be a popular pattern
