Happy August…I can’t believe summer is slipping away…I’m definitely ready for the temperatures to cool down…but not so ready for the lazy days of summer to end. We’re doing something a little different this month for our August Schnibble. Sinta and I have each chosen a different Schnibble, and you have the choice to make “Short Story” as Sinta did or “Plan C” as I did! Both patterns are available individually or in the book Schnibbles Times Two: Quilts from 5″ or 10″ Squares (That Patchwork Place)!
Additionally…you have the choice of making the small or large version. I made the large version of Plan C last spring and will be making the small version this month to share on the September 1st parade…I really love this pattern–the combination of four-patches with stars is something I’ve always been drawn to.
Our “Joy Luck” Schnibbles parade will be held this month on August 5th–the pattern was just being released at the beginning of the month when we announced it as our July quilt…so we’ve extended the deadline a few days for those who had trouble getting the pattern early on…so be sure to come back for the parade! Also…if you’re trying to finish all of the Schnibbles for the year so as to be eligible for the grand prize drawing…now is the time to finish up those extra Schnibbles!
And my “Summer Criss-Cross Throw” is also quilted with a rose pattern that I love.
Guess I’ll be doing quite a bit of binding this week! Have a wonderful rest of the weekend…and a happy August! Oh…and I’ll be back soon to announce the winners from my giveaway as well!
