Pieceful Days

My home is still busy with everybody home for the holidays. Quilting time has been very limited around here because of so many distractions. However, I have managed to get some piecing done that I would like to share. One of the things I love about Carrie's Schnibble patterns is that she is a designer who realizes friends like to share. Yes, there are copyright laws and she does state this in her pattern under the heading of Requisite Legal Mumbo Jumbo. Love that! But what I think is really cool is she also goes on to say we can make a copy of the pattern for personal use, or even one to share with a friend. Just don't make more than that. I think this may be the only designer that I've ever seen write this on a pattern. Could I be wrong?
This is Schnibbles "Decoy" pattern using Moda Wiscasset fabrics. Just two charm packs and some additional yardage for background, backing and binding. At some point it will be quilted and sent out as one of this year's RAKs.

A few months ago I won the above quilt kit from Sew Cindy. It is a good size quilt that my son is honestly trying to hold up straight for the photo. I also got this one pieced this past week and added it to the "to be quilted" pile. The quilting will really make this quilt pop with all those large open spaces. I've got somebody in mind for very pink one.

The Raspberry Rabbits is offering FREE stitchery patterns that you may be interested in especially if you are looking for something happy and positive (just love that!)

I love your Decoy Schnibbles quilt. I also really like the quilt you won from Sew Cindy, it's really nice. I'm sure the quilting will be awesome.

I'm really going to have to start doing these Schnibble patterns! I love what everyone is creating and the colors in the one you just did are perfect for what I have in mind. I'll be having a little more time now and can sit and sew a bit more. I'm loving all the inspiration your giving me! Cindy

I love your Decoy quilt! I love all of Carrie's patterns anyway, but I really like the fabrics you used in this one. I'm so glad you had some "pieceful" time!

The Quilt Buddy said...

You see, you did get something done over the holidays!

I have never done a Schniibble's pattern...but I guess that I am going to have to join in on the fun!

As always, LOVE YA!

They do look lovely and would make lovely gifts...Julia ♥

Pat said...

I never realized that about the Schnibbles patterns....will have to look at mine and see! LOVELY quilts you have made...and you've done more with folks around and under your feet than I've done with NOBODY here!!! (But I've been sick, so that's an excuse, right??)

Pat said...

Oh...yes...thanks for the stitchery link, too! LOVE the positive message in the one already shown there.

Sharlotte said...

Both of these are great , but I think my favorite is the Decoy Snibbles. Maybe it's the colorway you used . I really like those tones.

Andee said...

I just finished ordering some of that Wiscasset fabric...it looks great in your Decoy!

Both quilts are wonderful!!

Taryn said...

I love how you call those two tops "some" piecing. Can't wait to see what you can do when you put some effor into it. ;)

Kim said...

Both quilts are beautiful. I have the Decoy pattern and am prepping my fabrics to make one.

West Michigan Quilter said...

I've never used a Schnibbles pattern but now I will. I like the Decoy pattern and have lots of scraps that would work great with it. I think you and I must be on the same wave length as I mentioned Raspberry Rabbit too. LOL

Red Geranium Cottage said...

Love your DECOY quilt. Very cute. That's nice that she lets your copy one. Very nice.

Tins and Treasures said...

You still have your boys at home?! Lucky you!!

Emily went back today...I am back to school tomorrow.

Happy New Year ~Natalie

Kim said...

Cindy's gift turned out real nice. Can't wait to see how you quilt it up. And Decoy...Oooh my goodness I am in love! No idea how you fit this in with all that "the boys" have you busy with...all three of them, lol.

Vivian said...

The fabrics you used are lovely. You've gotten me very interested in the Schnibble patterns. I have several of the non-Schnibble Miss Rosie's Quilt Co. patterns and have enjoyed making a couple of them.

Her comment about making a copy for a friend is unique. I don't think I've read that in any other patterns.

Joyful Quilter said...

How practical (and realistic) to allow a copy to be made. Nobody may admit to it, but I imagine everyone at one time has made a copy of a pattern for a friend. I almost always make a copy while I'm working on a quilt - I tape fabric to it, scribble notes all over them...especially if I change it or make it larger.

I really like both of your quilt tops. I have Just Can't Cut It, but haven't used it yet, can't wait to see how you quilt it.

Chelle (Dana) said...

Mary, I love your Decoy Quilt. I'm going to have to order some of those Schnibble patterns. I've also been thinking of getting more of the pre-cuts. I think it's a good way to get all of those wonderful new fabrics without adding too much to the stash.

QuiltSue said...

Decoy is lovely. I'm looking forward to seeing your Pink Pop quilted.

Janet said...

Your quilt tops are great and I'm so impressed with a designer that is so generous with her patterns. I'm looking forward to seeing how these two are quilted.

Stephanie said...

Looks like you're off to a great start in the new year.

Kaaren said...

And that's what you call 'not being busy?' Yikes, Mary...that's being very productive in my books!

I must get some of those Schnibble patterns. I haven't seen one that I don't like!

Debi said...

Both quilts are very pretty, I also love the Schnibbles patterns.

Lori said...

Very nice!! I love the Wiscasset fabric and I think it was a great choice for the Schnibbles pattern.
I bet you'll work some magic on the large pink quilt.

Cindy said...

Ooh la la, the Decoy looks great in the Wicasset fabrics. Love it, love it, love it.

So much for having family home and NOT? getting anything done. Look at you, girlfriend - you got plenty done. The quilt kit you won is HUGE. I don't even remember it saying it was going to be that big. Yeap, it's PINK alright. LOL

And I know you a little by now and I know you'll be doing some special quilting on these two lovelies.

But, I have to say, even though Decoy is smaller, it's my favorite of the two.

P.S. I've missed you.

Shakerwood Primitives said...

Great Decoy quilt fabrics and pattern! Don't know what your idea of "limited" quilting time is but mine would have been just opening the pattern and skimming the directions. And maybe even picking the fabric out. Why am I so slow!!!???

Rebecca P said...

You have been busy. Such pretty fabrics & wonderful patterns.
I've loved that little decoy pattern ever since I fist saw it.

Needled Mom said...

I love your Schnibbles! You used some great fabrics too.

Your win quilt is also lovely. I am thinking spring already!

Stina said...

Love that with Carrie´s patterns... it feels so right... and I love making the quilts too.. Love your version with the stars... it will be a wonderful surprise for someone... and I have to say I love the Spring coloured quilt.... nothing wrong with a little pink..lol... Ahh.. think I have to start some PINK projects...just to cheer me up..:o)

Wendy said...

You've got a good start, the Decoy quilt is adorable, someone will be very happy to have it. Just getting back to regular routine as well.

Karen said...

I love your Schnibble's quilt!!

yellowfarmhouse said...

Oh boy I love that Decoy pattern - and the fabric -yummmmmm. You've been a busy girl. Thanks for the link to the freebies. I've read that little saying before. It's one of those sayings that touch my heart.

Happy New Year Sister - Karen

Allyson in Alaska said...

Oh yes, that Decoy quilt is a must do! I've been eyeing the pattern for a while, but now, seeing yours done in Wiscasset makes me want to do it even more. It's wonderful. That line is so pretty. And I have some of these charm packs in my stash already. Hmmm....the wheels are spinning in my head now.

I've noticed Carrie's little "mumbo jumbo" and thought it was pretty cute also. And thoughtful.

Sounds like you have a busy house. Enjoy all the company!

Happy Cottage Quilter said...

I do love your Decoy Schnibbles. And you are right about Carrie, she's very generous in that way. Your fabric selection is beautiful.

Thimbleanna said...

Wow -- I didn't know that copyright info about the schnibbles patterns -- that's really cool! Love your little quilt top!

Fiesta said...

Mary great quilts and as usual perfect color selection. I am going to try to by my first Schnibble pattern to give it a try. I like the one she has with tuffets.

Barb said...

Great quilts. Really lie the schnibble one, especially the name. Looking forward to seeing the quilting.
