First Project

Are you ready to begin the year of Schnibbles? Well here it is...one corner...can you guess the pattern?

Here is another angle...

And here is my finished quilt top! Yes...it's Winter White, one of my favorite Schnibbles patterns by Carrie Nelson of Miss Rosie's Quilting Company! I decided to use the fabrics on the pattern cover, although I used a green print for my outer border instead of the blue used in the original. I'm definitely going to bind it in red. This quilt was a lot of fun to make...and fast! I procrastinated until just a couple of days ago and was able to finish yesterday even just working a couple of hours a day. So I know you all can finish in a month! And don't worry about the flying geese blocks...you don't have to cut a single triangle!

Four quilt shops have joined in the Year of Schnibbles fun. They are: The Quilt Shoppe, Cottage Quilts, Bear Paw Quilts, and Quilt Taffy. These wonderful shops are going to offer patterns, kits...and provide prizes for our giveaways!
Remember, participate each month, or just the months you can. Post your completed Schnibbles quilt on your blog (or e-mail a photo if you don't have a blog). Leave a comment on this post after you've posted your quilt...you have until September 30th. Then, on October 1st Sinta and I will present the winner(s) and the parade of Schnibbles. Each month on the first of the month a new pattern will be announced. Also, remember that there will be a special prize drawing for those of you who are able to complete a Schnibbles each month. We are a big group--79, I believe, so this should be a lot of fun! Okay...go get those Schnibbles! And have fun!

I am anxious to get started. I'd like to have a quilt for Halloween, so I think I may use my Spooktacular charms for this one.

Janet said...

That sure is a pretty quilt! I love flying geese.

Judith said...

I have this one in my stash and decided to use Roman holiday for it as that charmpacks I have the longest in my stash. Just will have to pull a cream fabric from my stash for the flying geese blocks. Maybe I can have everything cut for my vacation and than after my vacation only sewing is left to do.

The Quilt Shoppe said...

Welcome to all the Schnibbles participants! It will be so fun to see everyone's Schnibbles quilts. We've listed four kits on our site, but can definitely make up a kit for anything we have in stock. Also, if you already have the charms and just need extra yardage, let us know and we can put together a finishing kit w/o the charms.

Lisa's idea is wonderful! And we just received all the yardage for Spooktacular. We'll add that to the options as well.

We're here to help in any way.

Enjoy!

Heather said...

Sweet, I like this one too :) Time to go shopping!!!

Carrie P. said...

OH your quilt is so pretty. That is a lot of participates. I know you are all going to make some lovely quilts.

I wish I had the time to join this group! You've done a fantastic job! Cindy

julia said...

Hi Sherri,
I have to admit I was quite excited this morning - September 1st has arrived. But I had to wait until after work before the day started in your part of the world ;o).
You chose a beautiful pattern. ** it, hat I don't have this at home (mumble, mumble). So I just ordered it from the Quilt Shop (I chose Glacé because I fell in love with that line & it will take a long time before my DMBOM will be finished...).
Now my only hope is, that the envelope doesn't get lost in space on its way to me. It's funny - sometimes it only takes a week, and others it takes nealy a month (gasp!).
Your Schnibbles quilt turned out beautifully! Do you have the Fit To Be Geese ruler that Carrie prefers? I'm thinking of buying it for a long time but couldn't decide yet...
Hugs, Julia

Trisha said...

I have my fabric all picked out and I can't wait to get cuttin'!

I love your quilt, so pretty!

Sinta Renee said...

I really like your Glace-Winter White Sherri! Now I'm going to have to make another one out of that group! Don't you like Lisa D.'s idea of the holloween fabric?

Nicole said...

Oh my gosh! I love that! I think Winter White is one of the few Schnibbles patterns I don't have, darn it. I am with Lisa--I want a table topper for Fall and just got a layer cake of Gobble Gobble.

Kaaren said...

Beautiful sample, Sherri.

I going to follow along to see all the wonderful creations.

Thimbleanna said...

Oooh, this is a pretty one -- I LOVE the colors!

Carol said...

Oh Sherri I just love it!

Seth, Sarah and the kids said...

Sherri.....Our shop would love to be a part of this. We love giving stuff away!! :) Let me know if you can add another sponsor!! I am so excited about this Year of Schnibbles!!! Yay!

Terriaw said...

What a cool quilt project! I love that pattern. I think red is going to make a great binding on this one, giving it a nice frame.

Cara said...

Just ordered a pattern and fabrics to go along with the Roman Holiday charm packs I had in my stash.

call me crazy said...

Oh decisions, decisions! Good thing I have 30 days! :-)

Carol said...

I have a bunch of Snibbles patterns but wouldn't you know it I didn't have this one. It's ok though, I visited my favorite on-line shop The Fat Quarter shop and got it ordered up for the September Snibbles Quilt. I'm going to be using Legacy fabrics for my quilt.

Christy said...

Too fun...I'm so excited. I had the pattern already, and love it! My fabric is now ordered and on its way. I'm doing mine with Aviary! I can't wait to get started!

Sheri Howard said...

So cute, I can't do one more project!! I will just have to watch everyone else!

Mel said...

Beautiful!

Candace said...

Superb, Sherri! I just love the fabric!
Cheers!

Jacqueline said...

I'm in even though I'm not sure I can always have the patterns delivered to the UK in a timely manner. Sounds like fun!

Alicia said...

I am excited. I ordered my kit from the quilt shoppe. I hope I get it soon, so I can get started. Is there any way to order in advance for October so I can get it in time for the beginning of the month?

Béa said...

Love your quilt ! I finished the top of mine, all from stash and blogged about it. Hope to quilt it by the end of the month ...kiss from France

Carol said...

Sherri I just finished my quilt top today and posted a photo on my blog. I still need to quilt it, I'll have that done before the end of the month. I really like how my quilt turned out. Thanks to you and Stina for doing this A Year of Snibbles otherwise I may never have made this quilt. I'm looking forward to doing these little quilts each month.

Robin (rsislandcrafts) said...

Cara said...

Can we add applique to the empty spaces?

Annette said...

Mine is finished and hanging on the dining room wall. Such a fun project.

Regena@QuiltnQuiltthings said...

I wanted to stop by and say my "Winter White" project is done, and I have posted it on my blog.
Hope you have a great day.
Regena

Lisa D. said...

I finished my "Winter White" - why have I never worked on a Schnibbles before? They are fun and fast! I can't wait to see the parade and see what you choose for October's pattern.

sara said...

Count me in!!!

Wendy P said...

Sorry, but I have to un-join this group. I did not think about the cost of ordering patterns plus shipping plus charm packs EVERY month. Tough times! Maybe next time??

Judith said...

Just wanted to let you know I have finished my winter white. Posted it on my blog.

Cara said...

Mine top is posted on my Sept 17th post. It won't get quilted until I've recovered from surgery.

Heather said...

I finished mine! Woohoo! Thanks for coming up with this idea :)

I finished my schnibbles quilt. Where do I post it?

Sherri said...

Mary--if you have a blog, you can post on your blog and then comment with a link to your post. If you don't have a blog...just e-mail a photo of your quilt to either Sinta or me! Either way will work! Have a great day!

Julie Love and Edie Frasier said...

I finished Winter White today. It is such a fun pattern! I'm trying to get blog working -- need lots of help in that area. I quilt much better than I blog! I'll email pix of it to you in a few minutes! Julie
