Paganini and a Parade


The Dream On and City Weekend half-square triangles are now..."Paganini!"


"Paganini" is one of Carrie's newest Schnibble patterns...and it's our very first project for the next year of small projects...called..."Le Petite!"  We will be making small projects each month and having parades each month as well...we'll be doing several Schnibbles along the way...and everyone is welcome to join in!
My quilt isn't quite finished...I'll have to wait until yardage is available for Dream On so that I can add my  inner scalloped border...but this is what the border will look like...


I LOVE Carrie's version made with Bliss...showing off the border I'll be adding.



But wait...you'll have four choices for this project..."Paganini" is actually four designs in one pattern...this Fresh Cottons version is fun, too!



And look at the quilt made in solids...gorgeous!


And another version with reproduction fabrics and dark sashing and background.  You'll have until October 31st to make your version of "Paganini"--parade on November 1st...please join in with Sinta and I as we start a new year of projects (we'll have a button for "Le Petite" soon)!


And now for our parade...if you remember we had two choices, "Plan C" and "Short Story."  More "Plan C" quilts were made...but we also got several "Short Story" projects entered! Lisa used Zippity Doo Da for this fun version of "Plan C!"




Trisha used Kona white and lots of colorful fabrics from her stash to make "Short Story."




Marianne used Botany for her "Plan C" and changed up the outer borders.


Regena also made "Plan C" with a border variation...fun!



Polly used the Mary Engelbreit fabric Attitude Girls...you can see the cute back on her blog!




Paulette (no blog) used A Breath of Avignon for "Short Story."



Penny (who is joining us today for the first time) made a miniature version of "Plan C"--yes, one-inch squares!  Love this!


Simone used A Breath of Avignon for her "Plan C" and also did a different border.



Rita (no blog) used Nottingham Village for her "Plan C."

Robin increased the block size from "Plan C" to 12 1/2" to make a baby quilt.


Sandie L used the beautiful Park Avenue by Moda for her "Plan C."

Sandy F (no blog) used Building Blocks by American Jane for her bright, cheery "Plan C."

Suzie also used Botany...making "Short Story."




Stina made a beautiful "Short Story" with applique'd flowers on the side.  You can visit her blog to see her fun post with all of her Schnibbles on a clothesline (except the Tuffets, of course)!



Susanne used Old Primrose Inn for her version of "Short Story."



Now, remember earlier when I said you had until the end of October to make "Paganini?" The reason for the extra time is another fun project we want to share with you..."The Great Cover Up" project!  Sinta and I are going to have a parade on October 15th of before and after ironing boards...so if your ironing board cover is lacking in style...or just really old and tattered...here is the perfect opportunity to make a new cover.  Sinta will be having a tutorial in a few days to give you some ideas.  There are also some fun ironing board cover patterns available that you are free to use( I love this one by Bonnie at Cotton Way).  Just send a before and after picture to Sinta or I by October 14th to be entered in the parade...and feel free to copy the button above if you're participating!  Whew...and also...just a bit of information for those of you who have made all 12 Schnibbles...we will be having a parade October 1st for that.  Please post all 12 projects on your blog sometime in between now and then (we know some of you have already done so...)...send us the link...and on October 1st there will be a parade and a Grand Prize drawing for those who have completed the whole year of Schibbles.

So...October 1st...Year of Schnibbles Parade...October 15th The Great Cover-Up Parade...and November 1st...Paganini Parade...first project for "Le Petite!"  Feel free to e-mail with any questions!  Have a great day!

Beautiful quilts in a fabulous parade of Schnibbles. It's been so much fun and I'm looking forward to another fun year.

What beautiful Schnibbles on parade.

Sandy said...

Beautiful! I esp love the Paginni in solids...Sandy

Cindy said...

Sign me up for the "New Year" of adventure with you and Sinta. I really look forward to another fun time and sharing different versions of one pattern.

And Sherri - I'm being TOTALLY honest here - YOU couldn't have timed a New Ironing Board Cover at a better time. The last couple weeks I've had it my mind to make one. I make mine, DDs and DILs ironing board covers. And it's high time it was MY board that gets a new look.

Honest to goodness - as they say - "timing is everything" and YOUR timing is SEW perfect.

Now - to finish up my current project, clean the house, do a little longarming - and then to deciding on fabrics for a new ironing board cover.

Thank you, Sinta and Carrie for such a fabulous year.

Hugs and blessings

Stina said...

I need a nap after reading what you're up to! Great new Schnibble. Not sure if I'll get to an ironing board cover but this will be fun to see all the creativity.

Homer and Queen said...

You are seriously demented. I finished your apron.

Beautiful quilts I love every single one of them. I especially like your Paganini! The bright colors are so wonderful. Thanks for the great parade.

Mama Pea said...

Great quilts! I have this book and want to make many (or all) of them, but can't start until at least this winter. Must finish some other things up first. Thanks for the nice parade!

julia said...

Fabulous quilts featured in this parade, as always!
And your Version of Paganini is so beautiful...! A great combination of colors...love it. I hope to make this one, too...there's a fair chance that I will finish this one until November (I hope so...who know what comes the next 2 months).
You two are ingenious...! I've wanted to make a new ironing board cover for months! I've always put it on the backburner...but now I have the motivation to tackle this...yay!
Hugs, Julia

wow what wonderful quilts to behold...

Terriaw said...

I love your Paganini quilt! Looks like a double strip down center of each block, which creates a cool effect. I also love the parade! My favorite is Marianne's use of Botany, but I love the large block size too. Such a wonderful variety!

Amy said...

Did you use one Dream On and one City Weekend charm pack for your version? I love the combination of the two collections. They really do compliment each other.

Carrie P. said...

Oh, I do love a parade:D
What a fun challenge to do.

Millie said...

All the quilts are beautuful, thanks for the show and tell.

Liz said...

So cool! I just got the book, and I'm making an "x-rated" table runner with Mary Englebret fabric. Love it!

Heather said...

So this was such a great year, everybody's quilts look amazing! Thank you again for hosting this with Sinta! I won't be joining you this year, the Schnibbles wore me out LOL! I am looking forward to see what everybody makes though :)

Larry said...

I can't decide which is my favorite they are all so beautiful. I'd love to own anyone of them.

What a great parade, once again. I love how so many quilters were inspired to make a different border this time. Makes it even more special.
Thank you, Sherri, Sinta and Carrie for having organized this great parade over the past year. I can't believe how fast it went! Looking forward to the new adventure the coming year (o: You can count me in already! Yeah!

I would love to participate in La Petit. Where do I buy the pattern for the first one? Is it a stand alone pattern on in a book?

Rob B said...

I'd love to join in the 'le petite' year but not sure how it all works. What do I do and how do I get started (with the joinging bit, not with the sewing bit lol)

Cardygirl said...

I am interested in joining the fun, but I am unsure how easy the patterns will be to procure in Australia. Any ideas what other designers you are using?
