Well, here is my fun news…Sinta of the Pink Pincushion blog came up with a great idea and invited me to share in the hosting fun of a new blog club! And…it’s going to be called A Year of Schnibbles. Anyone who loves these fun little patterns designed by Carrie Nelson of Miss Rosie’s Quilt Company is welcome to join…oh, and it would be helpful to love charm packs and prizes, too! We shared our ideas with Carrie, and she is excited about this club…in fact, she has some great surprises ready for those of you who participate!
Here’s how it will work…each month we will feature a different Schnibbles pattern. You get the pattern from your local quilt shop or from one of our featured shops. Make the pattern in any fabric of your choice…pick up some new charm packs…or raid your stash. Finish your quilt by the first of the next month, and we will have a quilt parade of finished Schnibbles as well as a drawing or two for some fun prizes! So…what do you think?! It’s going to be a lot of fun! Sign-ups start now until September 1st…at which time we will announce the first pattern!
If you would like to join in, here’s what you need to do: leave a comment on this post saying “I’m in” with a link to your blog; then, go over to Sinta’s blog and do the same. You can use the “Year of Schnibbles” picture above to add to your sidebar. Then, make sure you come back on the first of the month and comment on the club member’s post. When you finish your project post about it and then comment with a link to your post. If you’d like to participate but don’t have a blog, that’s fine too…just leave a comment and include your e-mail (when you finish your projects, you can e-mail a photo). Also, if you have a really busy month and need to skip out on a month, that’s fine too–but there will be a special drawing at the end for those who have participated each month!
Sinta and I will post all club members’ blogs on our sidebars and have a Schnibbles parade each month to share the finished quilts with links to your blogs! We will have a drawing or two each month for some really fun prizes and another drawing at the end for our 12-month participants!
