My First Schnibbles

I have had fun enjoying all the beautiful quilts at the Charming Girls Club, but as I tend to focus on making charity quilts, I rarely get time to make anything for myself.  As I’ve just finished this quilt top, I wanted to share it with you.  It is also my first schnibbles quilt.
The lighting in the room, my camera, and my desire to step back far enough to capture the entire quilt, doesn’t allow the beautiful colors to show up in this picture. Thus, I decided to include a picture taken outside, when I started this quilt at the Mogel Mountain Quilt Retreat last month.

The design is from the book “Schnibbles times two“, by Carrie Nelson, which I wrote about previously.  It is a fun book, with 12 cute designs that all have well written instructions and great visuals.

This pattern is “Bennington”, but I made it slightly longer, as I wanted to use it as a good size lapquilt. 

Now, off to do some fun machine quilting.  I want to finish this quilt and will most likely do a smaller schnibbles next time, possibly a table topper or wallhanging, for my next schnibbles.

  1. Darlene, beautiful Schnibbles quilt. One of these days I like to make my very first Schnibbles quilt too, but I am alwas behind with everything. lol


  2. That’s a beautiful quilt, and it looks like a good size. The picture taken outside is so beautiful; the trees are a great background. I’ll be watching for the next schnibbles you make.
