Today I was thinking about the Schnibbles class I'll be teaching next Saturday (among other things, I was sending letters to the students from my last class), and I remembered I still hadn't posted my personal "Year of Schnibbles Parade"--I thought this might be a good time for it. Although Sherri and Sinta will be hostessing a similar "club" for the upcoming year called Le Petite: A Year of Small Projects (there's still time to join), the Year of Schnibbles is done--except that before October 1st, each of us who participated is supposed to post our projects for the year. So, here it is, from September through August:
A couple of the photos show unquilted tops, but they have all been quilted since I first photographed them. Just out of idle curiousity, which of these patterns would you most like to make, or if you've already made some or all of them, which did you enjoy most?
I think I have three that I really love for slightly different reasons. Because I find the Kate Spain 12 Days of Christmas fabric wonderfully happy, making Reveille was a joy--watching the patterns and colors emerge was fun! I also really loved the softer color palette of the Fig Tree Whimsy fabric--I'm not sure I would have played with that line if not for making the Schnibbles patterns, and now every time I look at it, I want to make something else with that same line--it feels both joyous and tranquil to me. Finally, I had a lot of fun with the Mary Engelbreit fabric I used in State Fair, and the pattern itself seemed to be designed for embellishments--those pinwheels just screamed for button centers.
I'm looking forward to next year's "club"--this has been a lot of fun. And just look at all the quilts we made!
