Le Petite Project Finish Schnibbles Paganini

My first finish for the Le Petite year of small projects hosted by Sinta and Sherri. Our first project is a Schnibbles pattern called Paganini by Miss Rosies Quilt Co. I received many comments on the Fall into Fall Give Away of quilters asking what a Schnibbles because of the FREE Schnibbles quilting coupon. I've given you the link to check out the Schnibble patterns at Miss Rosies Quilt Co. website. You still have time to enter my give away by going to this LINK.

Paganini pattern has four different versions so you get more bang for you buck with this one! I chose to make version 1 with scalloped border. Dawn from Linen Closet Quilts posted a wonderful tutorial to help with the scallops that is different than the Schnibble pattern. I made mine using Dawn's directions since I quilted my top from edge-to-edge first.
This is the back and perhaps a better few of the quilting motif I chose. Since I used Moda's Butterfly Garden charms I decided to use butterflies and flowers quilting and felt even the scallops set of this butterfly theme nicely. What do you think?

Oh Mary !!! It is just beautiful! Truly breath taking! I know I use that phrase a lot when you show your quilts but it is the best I can come up with. I adore the scalloped border, it looks elegant. *sigh*...I'm going back to stare at it for a while longer. Then I'm going to watch the tutorial. Thanks sooooo much for sharing it with us. Hugs...

I like it Mary...
I don't have mine together...started, just not together. I've been debating about the scallop edge. I am going to go check out the tutorial you suggested. I watched the one here...and thought I might purchase the ruler...we'll see.

I think it turned out great. I never got the Paganini pattern but I did finish the Great Coverup (the other LePetit challenge).

Only one more show to vend then I will have time to do my own sewing!

Beautiful! The scallops compliment the quilting and quilt perfectly!

Sherrill said...

I LIKE it! I intend to attempt the scallops on mine also. I used Cotton Blossoms (an older line) in mine.

Weatherbee ;) said...

Wow! This looks amazing. I love the scalloped edges! And the quilting is just beautiful! When I see quilting like this I'm always in awe...do you follow some kind of pattern or placement layout, or is this all just free motion design?? Simply amazing! I would LOVE to be able to quilt like this someday.

Carol said...

Your Paganini quilt is so cute! I saw that tutorial too, it's a very good way for scallops, I'll have to try it sometime. Are you going to keep this quilt for yourself?

Carrie P. said...

Very very nice. I do like the scallops. I saw that tutorial and will give it a try one day on a quilt I do.

Karen said...

I think it is beyond fabulous! What a wonderful first petite....
I had planned to do this version #1 as well- am using xmas fabrics. Now i think I am going to do version#4- found last year's yardage that works so well with this new Basic Gray collection. Such decisions!! Thanks for the inspiration to get back to work on mine.

Chelle (Dana) said...

Mary, it looks gorgeous! I haven't seen that pattern at my local shops. Will have to check them out this weekend to see if they have any of her newest ones.

Janet said...

Me too, I love the scallops, a great finish and a gorgeous wee quilt.

Thank you for your kind comments about our new "quilter's" jewelry. Love your quilting and your blog. Thanks again, Debbie

Gretchen said...

A spectacular quilt!! The quilting is gorgeous and I love the scallops. I am waiting on the pattern to arrive to make mine. Guess I better figure out what charm packs to use too.

Mary on Lake Pulaski said...

It's beautiful Mary! The scalloped border is such a nice touch.

This is an adorable quilt, and the scalloped border is a perfect complement to the blocks.
Your quilting is superb, as always.

Wendy said...

Oh my the scalloped border really makes this quilt sing.

Joyful Quilter said...

Beautiful as always. I really like your background fabric...and that you used the same fabric on the back.

Deb said...

Oh my gosh, even more stunning than I expected. It's gorgeous! I think I was one of those clueless people asking about schnibbles lol Something I can see I will have to try!

Absolutely beautiful! Yours puts mine to shame.

Cheryl said...

Came by for a visit after you visited me! Love your Paganini. Miss Rosie frequents the shop where I teach and I am a big fan of her designs. Your quilting is wonderful. Too bad I don't live closer. I look forward to following you too!

I love the scalloped edge. BEAUTIFUL

Carol said...

Beautiful! Love the scallop!

Needled Mom said...

It looks awesome, Mary. I love the scalloped edges too. I know how gorgeous those fabrics are in person and I can tell you that the colors we see do not do justice to the fabrics. I had the same problem when I tried to photograph my Butterfly Garden fabrics. I wonder why.

Oh Mary - fabulous as always! Love the colors - and hte quilting is marvelous!
