Schnibbles Day!

It's February first (can you believe it?)...and here is the February Schnibble--"Sunday Best!"


I made mine out of Verna (by Kate Spain for Moda) and absolutely love it! You might notice I made a scrappy binding...the yardage is available now but wasn't when I was finishing my quilt...but I kind of like the scrappy binding! This quilt just says "spring" to me (although I'm rather liking the cooler temps right now...no hurry for summer).




A big thank you to my friend Gail who quilted it this week for me (last minute, no less)! "Sunday Best" is a nice sized quilt-- 37 by 37, using 64 charm squares (two charm packs-- you must have 2 charms each of 32 different charms), 3/4 yard of background, 1/2 yard of binding, and 1 1/4 yard of backing. Carrie also gives the option to make this into a 52 by 52 inch quilt using a Layer Cake and 1 3/8 yards of background. Make sure when you finish your "Sunday Best" quilt to comment on this post or Sinta's post with a link to your photo (non-bloggers e-mail as usual). This is a fun, fast, fantastic pattern that everyone will love...now...on with our parade!


First up is Kari's lovely quilt...I absolutely adore these colors!

Next is Lynda's Madeline...just gorgeous!



And Trish did a beautiful version in some great pinks!



Darlene has her Madeline beautifully quilted and bound!






Jocelyn's Madeline is beautiful...one of many who used reds and pinks!


Trisha loved the blocks so much she made more...quite a few more...her quilt top is 53 by 32 with borders still not added! You can read all about it here.


And here is "Madeline" from Paulette (no blog).


Next up is Sandy R. Of course I love this fabric!




This "Madeline" comes to us from Sandy F (no blog)--another beautiful interpretation.



And this one is made by Pam W. (no blog)--gorgeous.


This version is by Mary (no blog)...the French General fabric is very popular!



And this Madeline (all from her stash) comes to us by way of Stina. She mentioned she really appreciated using these light colors during the winter months.


This "Madeline" was made by Sigrid. (All these French General quilts are making me want to make another using this line!)





This one is by Sandy M. She used the beautiful Aster Manor line.




This one comes via Sandie--perfect for Valentine's!





This "Madeline" was made by Rita (no blog)--love her colors, too.





And a terrific Hope Valley version from Regena.




And one more French General version comes to us from Lisa. Well...I love them all! Make sure you head over to Sinta's for the other half of the parade. Sinta, Carrie, and I will be back tomorrow to announce the winners! Have a great day!

I look forward to seeing the parade each month even though I am not participating. Another group of great quilts. I really like the February pattern...especially with the Verna fabric. I have used up my Sampler pack squares and thinking I need to purchase some more of this line. I like your scrappy binding.

I can't believe it is February either.
Your Schnibbles is beautiful and so are all the others. Ladies have been very busy in January.

Wow, Feb 1 and you already have your next Schnibbles quilt done! I love that fabric line and yes it is very "Spring-like" to me also.

Love the idea of the scrappy binding!

Thanks so much for parading all of the other quilts. They are also so beautiful!

LyndaG said...

Sherri, Thanks for the parade. I'm on the hunt for the February pattern... When we did the Tuffets, I didn't take a picture of the back of several of them - I used your quote at the top of the page and printed it on the bottom of them since several were gifts.

naoko said...

Fabulous parade! Love that pattern and all those beautiful red fabrics! Sorry I didn't get this one done last month. But, I've got my pattern and fabric, so maybe I can finish 2 Schnibbles this month!
