I don't know about you... but summer took the best out of me!
I am looking forward to getting back to normal!
By normal I mean keeping up with my blog and
keeping up with your blog too!
I miss everyone so much. Even though I have
tried to keep up with
my quilting... it just hasn't been the same.
I am sure that it has a lot to do with taking a
break from AYOS for the summer months.
And now... it's time to get fired up again!
I haven't made a Schnibbles all summer.
I started thinking about when
A Quilting Life Sherri and I conspired and came up
with the idea... and then worked on a graphic for our "group".
It officially started September 1 of 2009.
A Year of Schnibbles was our
first logo button! Do you remember that?
Then we decided to do a version of the club in 2010 and
called it Le Petite.
Then we went to this (or maybe vis versa)
We changed the AYOS button a little the following year...
and then last year we called it
AYOS: Vintage Schnibbles!
We went back and made some of the older Schnibbles patterns
and then threw in a few new patterns too.
We even had a "guest" designer join in and we made a Thimble Blossoms mini
pattern... as we finished up the year.
Here are a few quilts of mine that were in our past parades...
and then this photo that came from
one of Carrie's wonderful books.
also her Little Bites patterns for what is it??? 5 years now?
Now wonder I am looking forward to getting back to normal
starting this September... just as week or so away!
Another Year of Schnibbles is gearing up to start again!
Sherri and I will be announcing our first project of the year on September 1st!
This year AYOS is going to be called:
AYOS and A Little Bit More
We are going to spice it up a little bit this year
with not only Schnibbles but Little Bite patterns
and also have a few "guest designers"
with small patterns...
and then to top it off Sherri and I will each be
creating a pattern of our own for you!
Easy enough for Sherri... but that will be a new one for me!
We would love it if you would
show us your Schnibble...
on September 1st, to help celebrate the
new year of
AYOS ... and a Little Bit More,
please post all
of the small quilts you made last year!
Send me your link and a picture of your quilt when you post it.
I am sure we can think of some prizes for you!

you were wondering how it works.
