Little Bites




September...can't believe it, but since it's officially here it is time for a Schnibbles parade! I had a ton of fun making next month's quilt, "Speck!" Carrie told me it would go together in just a few hours, and she was right. In fact, when I was finished I wanted to keep making more of these adorable blocks! I used The Ladies Stitching Club collection by Oliver + S for Moda. Since I just had a charm pack with no yardage, I used some of the polka dot I had in my stash from an earlier Oliver + S collection, Cape Ann--they coordinated beautifully!




"Speck" is from the new collection of "Little Bites" patterns recently released by Carrie. You can read more about them on her blog. Carrie is also having a sale on the new "Little Bites" patterns this weekend...for a 10% discount on a paper version "Little Bites" pattern enter the code: Paper10. For a 10% discount on a PDF "Little Bites" pattern enter the code: PDF10--sale good through Monday night at midnight (you can find Carrie's shop here).

If you look at the pattern, too, you'll notice that you have two options for this little quilt, the "x" version like I made or the "o" version. I definitely want to make the "o" version also. The best part about these quilts is they are made from 2 1/2" squares of fabric. So you can use the new Moda Candy--packages of pre-cut 2 1/2" squares...or you can use up scraps for these fun quilts!

The "Little Bites" collection of patterns finish up in smaller sizes, too (mine is 20" x 24") so September's project should go quickly...which will give you some time to get started on your October quilt...




And...we thought we'd announce the October quilt today...either Bounce or Hubble! Since these are both larger quilts, Sinta and I decided having the extra time to get started would be a bonus.  So "Speck" for the October first parade and "Bounce" or "Hubble" for November 1st!  Whew...that was a long introduction to our parade for "Dimestore"...so here we go!


Andee starts us off with her version...beautiful!


Carmen is next with another beautiful Dimestore quilt!


Carol's version just says "fall"--love it!


Darlene made this gorgeous version...another beautiful quilt!


Debbie sent in this photo of her Dimestore...pretty!

And last, but definitely not least...I love Michelle's Mama Said Sew version of Dimestore...stunning!

Thanks so much for stopping by...be sure to stop and see the other quilts over at Sinta's parade!

Note: If your quilt was sent in and isn't included on either parade, please e-mail me with a new photo and link to your blog (if you have a blog). I'll get the additional photos up this evening.  Thanks so much for your patience!

They're all gorgeous! Funny how each fabric line really changes the flavor of the quilt :)

Sinta Renee said...

Each one of these quilts are beautiful... but even more so when they are all together! It was a feast for the eyes! You Schnibbler's are awesome!

JoAnne said...

Wow! The parade is awesome again! It was a long time today waiting for it. I was madly checking Reader every hour or so... Everyone did a smashing job! Thank you so much, Sherri, for hosting. I'm already cutting my Little Bite.

Thelma said...

Another great parade, thanks so much for organizing this sew along!

Cheryl said...

I am so excited about the Little Bytes, in fact already got my order in!! Such a wonderful Schnibbles parade. Thanks to you and Sinta for this wonderful group, and also thanks for the heads up about the October pattern!

Darlene said...

Another awesome parade of Dimestore Schnibbles quilts. Lots of beauties.

I love Carrie's new Little Bites and Speck is very cute. I've already made Bounce so I'm in good shape with AYOS. woohoo!!!

Andee said...

Whoohoo nice to lead such a fabulous parade!

Karen Bates said...

OMGosh, what beautiful quilts...I love Dimestore!!! I feel double guilty now, I have two crib quilts to make and you do these in less than three hours...I am so behind, wish I could just spend a day with you..I know I would get them done. ;)

Thanks for sharing all those lovelies!

Love your quilt, Sherri! Great colors framed with white. The new patterns for October look fun too, especially the Hubble star.
