Now could we really do that to you?
No... I don't think so.
Sherri at A Quilting Life and I have put our little heads together and decided to
try our little adventure, with you, once again...
but this time with a little twist.
Of course we love our Carrie, so the plan includes her too! I guess we could call this Plan D...
but what we are going to call it is:
Le Petite Projects!
and the first project will be Paganini by Carrie Nelson of Miss Rosie's Quilt Co.
but we will have other designer's projects too! One's that you will love of course!
You can start now, but while we are getting this new year underway
we won't have our first parade of quilts until November 1st.
(border will be finished before that date)
But wait that's not all!
We are first going to have a challenge. Starting today.
We are calling it the
The Great Cover Up!
We thought we would have a 6 week challenge to cover your ironing boards.
October 15th will be the deadline. We will show before and after pictures.
We know what you're hiding! Sherri and I admit that our ironing boards are overworked and much neglected. How about yours? Are you game?
I will have a tutorial up at the end of the week for you but there are also other tutorials out there and also there is an awesome pattern: Patchwork Ironing Board Cover by Cotton Way.
One more thing before the parade begins. Sherri and I would like to have one more grand finale' parade on October 1st. Some of you Schnibblers have already posted all 12 of your finishes. We would love to have one more parade for all of you who have done all 12. You put them on your blog and give us the link and on October 1st (which happens to be the birthday of Carrie and me) we will post all the links and for those who don't have a blog, we will show your finished dozen on our blogs. How does that sound?
Okay that is it for the news flashes...
let's start the parade of Schibbles for one last time (this year-ish)
The choice was Plan C or Short Story in either small or large versions...
so here we go...
Here is Short Story made by Andee for Modern Diary blog. Great contrast going on here. Your eyes really move around on the quilt!
Here is a soft and precious Plan C Schnibble created by Carol at Carol's Craft Blog.. .
with a special guest star Buster!
Simple and Sweet. I love the simplicity of Cindy's Plan C. The small bold inner border really sets it off! Cindy at Sew Cindy blog.
Cynthia at Hyacinth Quilt Designs blog.
Cynthia at Hyacinth Quilt Designs blog... no not a mistake. Cynthia did both quilts.
An overachiever or maybe she couldn't make up her mind on which one to chose... both turned out beautiful!
This Short Story is from Di at Quilting is Blissful. A perfect little quilt, a perfect little venue!
Here is a stunning Plan C done by Heather at Quilt or Stitch blog.
This is a great fabric combination. The stars really pop out so dramatically.
I love this small Plan C made by Jo at Jo's Country Junction!
It's as sweet as can be!
Here is a dramatic Short Story made by Judith R. at Smokey from the Netherlands blog.
Here is a wow factor quilt with the black background just making those blocks pop!
This Plan C is made by Karen K. I love the softness of this quilt. Karen has once again used 3 Sisters fabric collection, Luna Nolte. That chair looks so inviting!
Here we have a large version of Plan C by Kim at Kim's Big Quilting Adventures blog.
I love the fabrics and the stripes!
Here is a beautiful Plan C made by Bea from France.
Looks like a perfect fit!
This one was made by Dona at Stitch by Stitch. Dona has been MIA for a while...
but go look at her blog. She has all of the Schnibbles done!
Here is a sneaky peak at Julia's Short Story made from Bliss!
Julia is from Little Girl Quilt's blog.
Here is Carol's Short Story out of my new favorite fabric group!
Carol's blog is Brown Quilts.
Here is Plan C by Darlene at Quilting Daze...

And this Schnibble is Plan C by Edith at Red Door Quilting...

Mmmm. Love those colors! This one is from Cara at Cara Quilts blog!
Here is Plan C, the small version made by Sandy at Sandy's Show and Tell blog. I heart this fabric!
So here is my recap-
A Dozen Schnibbles: 10/1
The Great Cover Up: 9/1- 10/15
Le Petite Projects: 11/1
Thank you all for a fantastic year of " A Year of Schnibbles". We have had so much fun doing it with you.
Sherri and I do our share of scrambling right before the first of each month but our parades have been amazing! And that is what it's all about! A special thanks goes out to our Featured Quilt Shops!
It would really be nice if everyone sent a thank you email to them for all of their support and prizes they have donated during this past year.
I can't wait to start on Le Petite Projects... I hope to see you there.
