I think I'm going to have to trade in my cats for dogs. My cats just don't cooperate in photo shoots the way Carol's Buster does--even Betty is much better than my Mr. Stitch and Ms. Spike.
Did you see the parade of Hat Trick Schnibbles on Sinta's and Sherri's blogs on May 1st? It's always so much fun to see what other people make, because a different fabric line or different color placement changes the look of the whole quilt--it's a very interesting little lesson to take in each month. I always see several quilts that make me think, "Why didn't I think of THAT?!"
In May, the group will be making the Gentle Art Schnibbles quilt--it's spools. It's not too late to join in if you're interested. Just email Sinta or Sherri and tell them you'd like to join and then, if you don't have the pattern, you can pop over to Miss Rosie's online shop and purchase a PDF copy for immediate delivery--no delays! These patterns are great for scraps too--you don't HAVE to use charm packs.
Tonight I thought I'd have a little giveaway in honor of both the Schnibbles group's first quilt of the year and the Sunday basket scrappers. Over the years, I've amassed a TON of Schnibbles patterns, and I've made a lot of them. Some of them I know I'd enjoy making again because, as I've said, a different fabric or color arrangement makes the quilt look completely different. But there were a couple that I don't think I'd make a second time, so I figured I'd give you a chance. Are you interested in winning the Picnic Schnibbles pattern? Want to see what it looks like?
See what I mean about the cat thing? I cannot tell you how many blurry cat behinds I captured while trying to get a photo, but Mr. Stitch just wouldn't go away--he wanted to keep reminding me it was time for his dinner. But he wouldn't sit still and let me photograph him either! If you would like a chance to win this pattern*, just leave me a comment with a caption or thought-bubble cat dialogue for any of these photos and tell me you'd like to win. And if you're not interested in the pattern but you want to put words in Mr. Stitch's mouth--or attribute telepathic thoughts to him--please also feel free to comment; just tell me that you don't need the pattern. I'll draw a winner on Friday night and announce the winner on Saturday's post with the Mister Linky sign up for Scrap Basket Sunday.
*Disclaimer: Cat not included in give away, although I reserve the right to change my mind at any time.
