Schnibbles Time Two Contest & Between Charming Friends Quilt-Along Post

Schnibbles Times Two Contest entry post here! As much as I love making Schnibbles quilts I should join in right? This means some evening sewing for me for sure. There is still time to enter and you can learn more from Kelly at Cotton Charm Quilts.

That's it! I'm also joining the Between Charming Friends Quilt-Along HERE.
So...I'm a little late to the party. I didn't know if I would be able to attend. The pattern looks like a fantastic fun one...afterall it is designed by my blog friend Darlene. She gave this pattern on her blog several months ago and I saved it for one of my someday projects.

I've been watching all my friends sign up for the party and gosh darn...don't want to feel left out! So here is my choice of fabrics and I plan to make the smaller version. I'm already behind as my fabrics are not cut yet. You can find cutting directions at this post.

So here is my rationalization for likely biting off more than I should, if I can finish these little quilts than I am two gifts closer to Christmas.

Mary, my hat is off to you, you brave, brave woman, LOL. I feel certain you are up to the challenge. I love your fabric choices too. Beautiful. Now...how was the trip to the beach? Big hugs coming your way!

Good for you! My life's too erratic right now to commit to anything other than work and taking care of grandbabies. I'm excited to see what you create with that beautiful fabric!

I'm thinking of joining in on all the fun. I couldn't get your first link to work, but did get to the second one. I'm so in love with these Schnibbles patterns that I think that I should start one. I'm late to the party as well, but better late than never, right?

I want to play, too, but I'm already working on too many things at once! I'm having a little bit of a focus problem.

Glad you're back!

Wendy said...

You Sew Girl, looks like you are all ready.

Janet said...

I like your rationalle, if you don't get done in time at least you'll have some fun and can save them for another time. I'll cheer you on from the sidelines.

Taryn said...

Your choice of colors is great! I never even thought you were biting off more than you could chew. Perhaps you should bite off more. ;)

Joyful Quilter said...

Oooooohhhhhh...I love that fabric! I can't wait to see it done.

Oh, I would really like to participate but I just can't do one more thing. Have fun.

Sinta Renee said...

I have joined in on both also Mary! Fingers are crossed for me... but I know you will have the projects beautifully done, and with time to spare!

Jo said...

Hey Mary...I know what you mean about biting off more than I can handle. I am doing the quilt a long too. I started Crazy Mom Quilts quilt a long and the mystery over at Patchwork Times. I may not finish them all on time but like you say...more gifts finished!

Kelly@ Charming Chatter said...

I'm so excited that you're going to join us in both the Schnibbles Contest and the Quilt Along Mary! And, I LOVE the fabric you've chosen! Can't wait to see more - and you're right - they'll make great Christmas gifts!

I just won one of those adorable schnibbles patterns over at Quilt Taffy. Good for you for jumping in, those patterns make such cute quilts, perfect for a gift. Pretty fabrics, can't wait to see the quilt you make.
