March--Already?!



Happy March 1st! And welcome to the parade for February's Another Year of Schnibbles!  For those who are waiting to find out the March pattern...it's Bibelot!



I have spent the last week going back and forth on which fabrics to use.  In the end, I decided that this quilt is going to be draped over my great-grandmother's sewing machine; so, I figured using Curio by Moda (as Carrie did in the sample pattern) would be perfect! I had so much fun making these little "T" blocks.  My favorite thing about this pattern so far...each block uses just one charm square!

And now for the parade...this month I have entries whose first names start with the letters A-K. To see the other half of the parade be sure to visit Sinta today, too!



I had to start with this Fig Tree version of I.S.T.H. (Insert Snappy Title Here--last month's pattern) by Jennifer--love this!



Beatrice made this version.


Carol C (no blog) made this French General quilt...so pretty!


And Debi (no blog) made a fun, colorful version.



Denise shows how striking this pattern is in a bold, modern colorway.


And Diana did what a few others did--made a table runner--clever!


Jamie made a smaller version too, and she threw in a rogue block just for fun!


JoAnne made this lovely version.



This beautiful table runner was made by Cheryl...so beautiful (love the quilt in the background, too)!



And Brenda also made a smaller quilt.


Kay (no blog) made this beautiful French General version


And Kay M (no blog) made this fantastic Ruby version...I love how she used the greys in her quilt!


 Di made a lovely red, white and blue quilt!




And Dorothy sewed a beautiful spring version of I.S.T.H.



Amanda (no blog) sent this photo of her reproduction quilt.


And Andee also made a fun table runner!


Carmen (no blog) created her version with beautiful blues and golds.


Carol made this adorable "chicken" version!


Another Carol (I think there are 3 today) made a "redwork" fabric version...so pretty!


And Debbie also made a beautiful version!


Denise sent in this lovely photo of her quilt top!


And Eileen's quilt is just beautiful, too!


Hildy (no blog) sent in this quilt...perfect quilt for the 1st of March, I'd say!


And Izzy also made a spring version of the pattern (her daughter is holding the quilt).


Karen made her version with these beautiful earth-toned fabrics.



Rene sent in this variation...clever idea!



And Kim used these beautiful blues and browns...a mix of Blueberry Crumbcake by Moda and some fabrics from her stash.  She is going to use hers as a table topper in her kitchen.

Once again, it was a lot of fun seeing each quilt! I know the quilts on Sinta's blog are beautiful, too!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

I couldn't wait to see them all together in your post! Very fun and unique versions of the pattern. I love star blocks! Every quilt is just gorgeous.

Kim said...

They are all so fun! I thought about patriotic colors but didn't go that route; now I wish I did because they're excellent! Of course, so are many others. Thanks for all the work you and Sinta do to make this so much fun!

Wow they all look so good! I tried to join in this month, I ordered my pattern on the 1st Feb but unfortunately it hasn't even arrived yet! Last month my pattern arrived too late also. I am about to go and find a pattern to order for this month so hopefully it will be third time lucky!

Love your plan and colors for the new quilt! Thank you for all the pretty pictures.

I want to start a miniature and Masterpiece thread is perfect as it adds less bulk that other threads.

Well, that certainly was a popular pattern. So many great versions. I always enjoy seeing the parade of quilts.

Dee said...

It's so much fun to see what fabrics and changes other people will make to the same pattern. Of course, seeing them makes me second my choice in fabric! LOL. Beautiful parade again. I'm looking forward to next month's too.
