Schnibbles Parade!


Well, it's November first...the big parade...but, first things first...do you recognize this Schnibbles pattern???

It's one of my favorites...


The November Schnibble is..."Picnic!" Mine is made with Simple Abundance by Moda (thank you for the suggestion, Carrie)! I had a great time making this pattern and can't wait to see all of the "Picnic" quilts on December 1st! A couple of ladies requested fabric requirements so they could start gathering materials while waiting for their patterns to arrive...I thought that was a great idea...so for "Picnic" you'll need 2 charm packs, 7/8 yard for background and inner border, 1/3 yard for binding, and 1 1/8 yard for backing.


We have some great prizes this month. First, from Carrie is a Happy Campers by American Jane for Moda Jelly Roll and a Miss Rosie's Quilt Co. project bag! Carrie will announce the winner of her giveaway on her blog! We also have some giveaways from some of our featured shops! We really appreciate these shops stocking the patterns and making it easier for you to get them, especially for those of you who don't live close to a quilt shop!


The wonderful Fat Quarter Shop girls have donated a $50 gift certificate!




And we also have a $25 gift certificate from Cottage Quilts!


Havasu Quilts is giving away this great panel and Fabulous Fall fabrics by Moda!



And Quilt Taffy is giving away a $10 gift certificate!





Finally, we have 2 charm packs from Bear Paw Quilts! Sinta and I will announce the winners of these prizes tomorrow. We'll do random draws from each parade! And now, as they say...on with the show! I can't tell you how fun it's been to see each quilt come in. It is so fun to see one pattern made up in so many ways...there is just so much wonderful creativity out there!

This version comes to us from Karen.

And this version is Andee's who used Moda's Harmony line.


Here is a fun version from Strlady...she used Crazy 8's by Moda...fun!
This version is done in Jo Morton fabrics and comes to us from Edith.

Next up is this delightful Valentine's version from Kari of Fresh Cut Quilts!


Here is the "Cindy Lou Who" from Ginger Patches. She used Peace on Earth, Winter, and Roman Holiday--all from Moda.
Stina used French General Rouenneries fabrics by Moda along with some from her stash...she finished one hour before midnight!!!

This version comes from Simone...what wonderful bright colors! Simone's quilt is completely finished, quilted, and bound!



This quilt is Julia's. Her quilt isn't quilted yet...but for good reason. She is going to do redwork stitchery in the snowball blocks! What a terrific idea!

This quilt is Christy's. She used the Mary Engelbreit fabric The Caroler for her "Cindy Lou Who!" Love this!


This is from Trish of Quilt Tales. She used Thimbleberries and Civil War prints from her stash and only had to purchase backing!

This is from Jocelyn of Happy Cottage Quilter. She used fabrics from her Civil War stash to complete her quilt!


This quilt is from Ariane. She used Christmas fabrics from her stash, and it's lovely!


This is from Anne of Batik's by the Bay. She plans on using a navy fabric to bind it with which will be stunning!


This quilt is from Aimee. She used Spooktacular and even machine quilted this herself using a free-hand drawn spiderweb!

Carol of Carol's Craft Blog used Authentic...it's gorgeous! Carol made a terrific label for the back of her quilt using selvedges so that she'll always know the name of the line of fabrics she used...clever!




This is Regena's. She also made her quilt a little larger.




This is from Di at Quilting is Blissful! She has hand-quilted her quilt already!

And finally...this is Terri's version of Cindy Lou Who! What a parade! You can see the rest of the quilts over at Sinta's blog! Also, be sure to head over to Carrie's blog as well.


I'll be back tomorrow with our giveaway winners...and I can't wait to see those pictures of "Picnic" quilts start coming in! Have a great day!

Your new Schnibbles' quilt is lovely, Sherri! Can't wait to get the pattern. And I love all those different quilts with the same pattern. Uncredible. It is so much fun to look at them!
Have a lovely Sunday.

julia said...

Hi Sherri,
amazing! I love the parade of Schnibbles (and already have a favourite - no, it isn't mine it comes from a lovely Swedish lady...).
And your Simple Abundance Picnic! quilt is GORGEOUS! It was really worth the work with all those tiny HSTs!
Congrats to all Schnibble-lettes! On to the next challenge...
Hugs,
Julia

I just love the parade of quilts! they are all really beautiful! I so wish I could have joined in, but you know time constraints can be a bear. I love the newest pattern for November, and can't wait to see those quilts. What terrific prizes that are being given away!

Here is mine!

Karen said...

I am not a Schnibble's participant but the next pattern in line is oh so tempting.

I really enjoyed seeing all the quilts done for this past month. Interesting to see what everyone picked for their color scheme.

Brenda said...

Loved looking at all of the Schnibbles, they are wonderful.

Cara said...

Oh they all look wonderful! CCan't wait til Sinta has her parade up, awful thing about being an early bird lol.
I love seeing them in all the different colours combos, really makes me want to make it again.

Aleisha said...

These quilts are beautiful!

Nedra said...

Wow, what a parade! Your group is really participating well. So fun to see the same quilts made in different fabrics.

Karen said...

amazing parade! how does one get in on all this fun?

Cindy said...

And what a fun parade it is!! To see one pattern made from so many different fabrics is very inspiring. "Who" knew that one pattern could create so many ideas?

Sheri - do we purchase the patterns from anyone in particular or can we just go ahead and start searching on line or local quilt shops for the pattern? Also, do we stick "right to the pattern" or can we "add" our own ideas by "tweatking" the desing or adding embellishments?

Quilt Hollow said...

Now that was a fun parade to see all the same pattern in different fabric lines and color ways! I sat trying to pick a favorite...that was impossible! Job well done to all!!

Robin (rsislandcrafts) said...

I LOVE when the parade comes to town!!

Everyone's quilts are looking wonderful!

Terriaw said...

Wow, this is so fun to see all the different interpretations with the same pattern. I love all the different fabrics that are put together. What a great way to spend a day checking out everyone's creativity!

Christy said...

LOve the parade-they all look beautiful! I can't believe some of them are already quilted too! Way to go ladies!

Can't wait to start the next one! I love the Simple Abundance fabric you used!

Kalleigh Hathaway said...

Wow! Each one of those looks better than the last (no offense to the first ones)! I love the ones with bright contrasting colors; I would never have picked those up myself but they look stunning and really make the pattern zip!

Marianne said...

Wow what a parade! It seems to me that more people were able to get the quilts bound and quilted too this month! They are all so wonderful. Love the pattern pick for November, I already have it!

ferne said...

I loved seeing these quilts! Gotta get me some Schnibbles! Loving the picnic one especially.

I sent my photo yesterday morning and don't see it posted. Did you get it? It said it was sent. I started a blog last month under little red hen. Unsure how to e-mail photo without blog. Edith

Rae Ann said...

jaybird said...

yay for november's being picnic.. i already have that one done! ;-) nice job everyone on october's!!

*karendianne. said...

Well but my aren't these amazing. I'm utterly reconsidering making one now! Isn't it amazing how inspiring something becomes once you see it in a nice variety of fabrics? Why is it that THAT does something to the senses?! Oh who knows Karen ~ don't question it ~ go with it. I should...

...and thank you for putting this on from someone like me that didn't really pay attention to these before. :)

Kaaren said...

If I had to pick a winner, I couldn't because they are all so beautiful and win first prize in my book. Great job, gals!
