I know I talk about Schnibbles quilts a lot, and for the most part, I assume you know what I'm talking about. But with having taught a class recently and talking generally to quilters about Schnibbles quilts, I've learned that many people are
Schnibbles deprived unfamiliar with Schnibbles.
Schnibbles is a quilt pattern line designed by Carrie Nelson of Miss Rosie's Quilt Company. Schnibbles quilts are small--usually between 30" and 40" square. They can be made using two charm packs and sometimes a little bit more fabric for the settings. In Carrie Nelson's new Schnibbles book, Schnibbles Times Two, she has reprinted some of her earlier Schnibbles patterns and also converted the patterns to make larger, lap sized quilts. The larger quilts are much like the smaller ones but are made using two LAYER CAKES and sometimes a little bit more fabric for the settings.
The small quilts are fairly quick to make, and I like the flexibility of purchasing small quantities (charm packs) of fabrics, having the pleasure of experimenting with a new line, and not ending up with a ton of scraps to add to my overflowing scrap bins.
The Schnibbles class I taught--and the few that will follow--involve patterns from the new book. In looking through the book, I've realized I have several individual patterns that have been reprinted in the book, so I thought I'd share them with a couple of you who may be
Schnibbles deprived unfamiliar--until now.
If you do not have the new book and are interested in one of these two patterns . . .
. . . leave me a comment on this post telling me which pattern you want. Don't tell me you'd be happy with either one because I need to decide whether to put your entry into the drawing for Little Red . . .
. . . or Plan C (I made a large version of this pattern using the new Bar Harbor line--terrific for a summer or 4th of July quilt).
Okay, to recap--you are eligible to enter this Schnibbles drawing if (1) you are new to Schnibbles; (2) you don't have and don't so far plan to get the new Schnibbles book; and (3) you're able to make up your mind between the two patterns shown above. A couple other details? Only one entry per person please. I'll draw the winners on Friday night and post the names on Saturday's blog post--and you must come back to visit to claim your prize. If either pattern is unclaimed within a week, it will go into another drawing.
Converting quilters, one Schnibbles at a time.
