Winter White – A Year of Schnibbles #1


I wasn’t going to do this. 

Really, I wasn’t. 

Something about time or the lack thereof. 

But then I got to thinking …

“I spend a lot of time at soccer practices and games.  It’s ON-LY 34” square.  Why not hand piece it?  It shouldn’t take that long.”  So self convinced me that it was doable.  I picked Aviary by 3 Sisters and added one of the the specialty fabrics from Simplicity for the white.  I hand-pieced all the flying geese.  Then, because of time, I machine-pieced it all together. 

Do I dare try quilting it myself? 
I think I might ….
But not today.
No time.

Are you participating in “A Year of Schnibbles”?  If so, we’d love to see your “Winter White.”  Send us an email by Sat. Oct. 3 ( with a picture and we’ll post it on our blog on Monday, Oct. 5.

We’ll have October’s Schnibbles kits ready tomorrow!  Don’t be surprised if you see me on the plane headed to Market, Schnibbles in hand!

I almost did mine out of Aviary but at the last minute went for Figgy Pudding. I might have to make a second one because this is gorgeous!

Hand pieced?

:::bowing in deference to Lani:::

Can I tell you a funny story? Have you ever seen Jinny Beyer hand-piece? She is SO fast! I couldn't feed pieces through the machine as fast as she can hand-piece! And her piecing is perfect. Like yours.

I love your quilt ~ it's absolutely beautiful and I look forward to seeing it finished.

Have an awesome time in Houston at Market ~ and a very, very safe trip.
