Schnibbling Along…

I’ve been sewing on my Schnibble of choice for February! Someone was being very anti-social that day, huh?


This month we got to choose the Schnibble we make!  YAY!!


So, I went through my Schnibble pattern collection, and decided on one I’d never made called “Mon Ami”.


I used 2 charm packs from an older collection from Moda called “Freebird” by MoMo.  Very fun and bright!


I quilted it with a simple stipple all over. We’ve got bee on Friday, so I’ll sew down the binding by hand at bee, and post photos after that!!


I had a little pile of tiny leftover half-square triangle blocks after I finished the Schnibble pieced border.


I always feel so tortured about throwing out even tiny blocks like these…  so I didn’t!!


I made a little zippy bag from them!  Sooo much better than throwing them out, right??  Do you save orphan blocks?


What have you been working on this week?

  1. Thanks for sharing he idea of making pouches from left over blocks. I have so many random blocks that this would be perfect for. Give Yogi a squeeze for me!

  2. Love your Schnibbles quilt! And, I always save my orphan blocks. I usually make little table mats!

  3. I love your Schnibbles quilt. I also wanted to know about your design wall. Is it on a curtain rod so it can be rolled up? Love the idea. Thanks.

  4. Love your Schnibbles -- need to make mine this weekend -- I always save extra blocks and usually make candle mats -- the bag is a great idea -- perfect little Christmas gifts.
    Happy stitches!

  5. Your Schnibbles are delightful!! I try not to throw anything away, whether I use it right away or save it for later Love your little bag.

  6. Beautiful! Oh, I save even the smallest! I have about a bajillion (ok well maybe not THAT many) from my Celtic Solstice! They are sewn together and awaiting my evil plan! They are 1 1/2 inch squares! Finish at an inch! I LOVE them! Hehe! And I CRINGE to watch people throw those gems out! Ar pay a LOT of money for fabric! I have PROBABLY 6-8 12 inch blocks of 1 inch squares left from my CS. That's a LOT to throw out!

  7. The Schnibble looks awesome and I love the little added pouch. It's so much better than throwing them in the trash.

  8. You create such beautiful quilts. I love the little pouch as well. Do you have a tutorial on how you made it? Keep happy by creating beautiful quilts.

  9. Love the quilt and the cute pouch! Of course, I love to see Yogi! Thanks for sharing.

  10. Love the Schnibble and that oh so adorable little zippy bag! I bet the hum of your sewing machine really makes Yogi relaxed.

  11. Your quilt is so pretty and I love that cute zippy bag (and it goes without saying that Yogi is just adorable) !! Thanks for sharing :)

  12. Love seeing all the things you make!

  13. Your zippy bag is so sweet! But I have to tell you that I am crazy over your "sew... a needle pulling thread"! Did you buy the words somewhere???
