Today is the Day

On your mark!
Get set!
Go!
A Year of Schnibbles has now officially started!
We have nearly 80 wonderful people signed up for a Year of Schnibbles! Can you believe that! We are going to have the best parades every month... no pressure to finish though... and tops work for me too!
Even though it has been fun to keep you in suspense it is time to show you the first project...
This is the first Schnibbles pattern we will make. It's called Winter White. You will have to see Sherri's, A Quilting Life, version of the pattern. Hers is made with the Glace fabric line. I made mine with the Robyn Pandolph's group Roses de Noel. I just love this pattern and couldn't wait to make it. I do get a bit challenged by the flying geese... but Carrie, of Miss Rosie's Quilt Company, has great instructions and options in the pattern for you. I added buttons in the centers... I wanted to use red but didn't find any I liked. So for now I just used my vintage white ones.
I had originally purchased my group from the Fat Quarter Shop. We have not as of yet gotten them to agree to be a "featured quilt shop" for our group. Maybe with a little prompting from you guys they will be interested!
But... The Quilt Shoppe has been wonderful and they do have a large selection of charm packs as well as kits made up with the Glace group that Sherri used.
I have listed on my sidebar the quilt shops that we are featuring. They have patterns available right now and are eager to work with our Year of Schnibbles group. Quilt Taffy has a good selection of charm packs and is happy to put together a kit for you.
Right now Bear Paw and Cottage Quilts have the Winter White pattern. Cottage Quilts has a lots of charm packs and coordinates for you too.
Everyone is excited to help you get started on your Year of Schnibbles...
and Sherri & I want to see what you come up with!
Your fabric requirements are:
2 Glace charm packs * 5/8 yard background & inner border * 1/2 yard outer border
*1/3 yard binding * 1 yard backing
(I will get the rest of the names listed on my sidebar today and if you don't see your name please let me know.)
Remember in order to be in drawings for prizes for A Year of Schnibbles you need to make sure you did these 4 steps:
1. Leave a comment on this post and say “I’m in” and leave a link to your blog; then go over to Sherri’s blog and do the same.
2. Grab our button and put it on your sidebar.
3. Put me on your favorite’s list and Sherri too… so you don’t miss out on anything. We'll have surprises!
4. On the 1st of each month you will comment on our Club members post. So we can link back to your blog and see your finished project.

Shelly said...

Yipee! Ordered my kit too.What fun!

Sherri said...

Your quilt looks wonderful! I love it!

Stina said...

Love it.. who can not fall in Love with Robyns fabrics!!!
I do have a question... It would really really help if we knew in advance how much fabric that will be needed.. one or two or three charmpacks.. :o)...??

The Quilt Shoppe said...

Welcome to all the Schnibbles participants! It will be so fun to see everyone's Schnibbles quilts. We've listed four kits on our site, but can definitely make up a kit for anything we have in stock. Also, if you already have the charms and just need extra yardage, let us know and we can put together a finishing kit w/o the charms.

If you're looking for a fun Halloween theme, we've just received all the yardage for Spooktacular. We'll add that to the options as well.

We're here to help in any way.

Enjoy!

Lisa D. said...

I love your version with the Robin Pandolph fabric. I am looking forward to making this one!

Judith said...

I started cutting as soon as I got home from work and did know what pattern we will be working on. I am already half way the cutting. Tomorrow I am off from work and guess what I will be doing. I hope to finish the top before my vacation and than after my week off I only have to quilt it. Love your version with Roses the Noel a lot, I have fattquarters of that line for a miss rosie pattern (one of her biggies). I am doing mine with Roman holiday from moda

Kari said...

Of course the one pattern with tons of Flying Geese---my arch nemesis! you never find them in my patterns for a reason!
It will be a great challenge for me though and now to find the pattern---off to one of the shops you linked I go!

QUILTING IS BLISSFUL, DI said...

Hi--yesterday I was in my local quilt shop and I remembered to ask her if she has some of the patterns and she showed me the ones she has--so I bought the "winter white" one hopping it would be one of the picks for this fall--and I was sooo surprised to see it is actually this months, pick--what fun--I am still thinking--about using "winter song" for mine as I am in the Christmas mood!!! Hugs just, Di

Christy said...

I just ordered the pattern and I'm raiding my stash for the fabric. I have some April Cornell Christmas Presence charm packs and yardage that will work perfectly.

Stina your Winter White quilt looks great with Roses de Noel fabric. I just finished my quilt top and posted a photo on my blog. Of course I still need to do the quilting and I'll have that done before the end of the month.

I have finished my Winter White today! It's just beautiful. Love the Schnibbles and the Fit to Be Geese ruler -- made it so much easier. I'm working on getting a blog started now but I still don't know how to post pix on blog. Do I need to email photo to you? Julie

I made a suggestion to Sherri and now you too. It's not fun to scroll through your blog to find the right post to give you the link. Sooo could you and Sherri put a button of some sort just for us Schnibblers so we can get back to you easier? Thanks.
