On your mark!
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...
