Your Favorite Schnibbles Contest Quilts! And an extra surprise! - The Jolly Jabber Quilting Blog

Your Favorite Schnibbles Contest Quilts! And an extra surprise!

“Your Favorite Schnibbles” quilts are due!! I’m excited to show off what you’ve made with some fabulous Layer Cake choices! If you are just now joining us, this is the conclusion to our little contest/giveaway. It is based off of Carrie Nelson’s book Schnibbles Times Two, which may arguably be the best thing to ever happen to Layer Cakes. (And — who knew — if not for the Jolly Jabber, the book may have not come to be!!??)

Carrie Nelson the Great is here today to give us an update on the life and times of Miss Rosie’s Quilt Co. (La Vie en Rosie LOL!); new Schnibbles, revamped pattern… be sure and read through to the end for a nice little surprise and some show-and-tell!

Hidee ho Jabberettes!

What’s new with you? It’s a hot, hot day in my neighborhood… but that’s not really new for Phoenix. Did you know that the line “Hot time, summer in the city” was written with Phoenix in mind? Okay, not really, but it could have been. That’s one of my favorite summer songs, by the way. Actually, I think it’s everybody’s favorite summer song… but I’m digressing. As usual.

It’s been kind of a crazy year since I was here last time, in part because of something I wrote last time… but more on that in a moment.

Have you seen the new Schnibbles patterns? Joy Luck is probably my favorite, probably because I love, love, love the Verna collection by Kate Spain. I love Fandango too, but Verna is definitely my favorite. I love that French General too. My Mon Ami (coming soon to Fat Quarter Shop)…wait until you see it… you’ll wonder, how in the world did she manage to work 268 half-triangle squares into a 33” x 33” quilt? It was easier than you think.

And then there’s that fabric thing ~ Fresh Palette will be here in October. It’s making me crazy to have to wait to actually get the fabric in my hands but then again, it will get crazy when I actually have it and have to get a couple of quilts made. Pronto. It’s a mixed bag, isn’t it?

Books! Spice of Life Quilts and Schnibbles Times Two are already out and A Touch of Rosie is coming this October. As beautiful as the two Leisure Arts books are, I really miss the cows. (Schnibbles Times Two ~ page 59. It’s my favorite picture in the whole book… and but for a series of events set in motion by something I wrote here last year, it might not have happened.

In telling you how the Schnibbles patterns came into being, I kinda sorta suggested that maybe, just possibly someone was making a little bit of extra work for me with her ideas and pestering. You know her. You love her. Yes, Moda Lissa. That’s who I’m referring to.

A few weeks after Lissa had written a nice post trying to explain the reasons for her pestering me, I e-mailed her to make sure she knew I was teasing because, well, not everybody does. And it was important that she know I was teasing… just in case I needed some more charm packs. (Okay, so that’s probably why I e-mailed her in the first place, but my version sounds better.) When she wrote me back, she told me that she had this idea for turning my charm pack quilts into layer cake quilts. An e-mail to the lovely ladies at Martingale and a week later, I’ve got a contract, a dozen quilts to get made and a manuscript to write. And oh yeah, by the way, this was all taking place about two months before Spring Market.

I told you she’s good at making work for me. In the most loving way possible.

Before I forget, if you went back and read the post from last year… the nine-patches were part of Quadrille, the scraps in the basket became Sweet Tea and the Bella Solids are in a version of Blue Skies that will be out in another month or so.

As for Schnibbles Times Two ~ I wasn’t 100% sure about them when I first started because… well, the pieces are kind of big. Seriously! A couple of those quilts have flying geese that finish at 4” x 8”! Huge! But here’s the rub… the bigger pieces are perfect for all those fabulous contemporary collections, like Verna. And Fandango. And Freebird ~ yes, I’m in love with this one too. Who knew that those really big pieces meant so many more fabric options for moi?

And it wasn’t like I couldn’t occasionally put a few small pieces into the quilts, just to get it out of my system if I just had to. For example, instead of just cutting a big square, I could make a couple half-triangle squares and piece them to make something the same size. That’s how I came up with Lumiere de McGuffey. It’s just the McGuffey quilt from the book with a little tweaking. All you need are two Lumiere Layer Cakes ~ though any two layer cakes will work, so long as you have 83 squares, a half-yard of fabric for an inner border and the Schnibbles book. And these free revised instructions.

Okay, my glass of iced tea is empty so that means it’s time for me to go.

Oh, one last thing… if you leave a comment here by next Monday, July 19, you can win a complete kit to make the Lumiere de McGuffey quilt. The kit includes two layer cakes, the inner border yardage, and a signed Schnibbles Times Two book. And it comes packed in a Schnibbles project bag. All you need are the backing and binding.

I’m betting that Kimberly and Co. can help you out with that.

Did you hear that, Schnibbles fans?? Thanks to Carrie for her generosity!!
Now let’s do a little show-and-SchnibblesTimesTwo-tell so we can out some fab prizes too!

  111. i love the Joy Luck quilt – and i really liked the book (Amy Tan) and movie, too

    I do follow your blog, and V& Co. sent me over this way too.

  114. I love schnibbles quilts. They're the perfect size to take with you and hand sew. Or, if you machine sew, they're the right size to get something done when you feel like you're not accomplishing anything of late.

  115. The quilt is beautiful! I have been quilting for 15 years but took several years off to complete my degree. I would love to restart my quilting with this project!

  116. I've never seen a Carrie Nelson quilt that I didn't "love" — think how exciting it would be to actually win fabric to make one!

  117. Hola! Bellísimo ese patrón y gracias por darnos la chance de participar para obtener una copia! Me encantan los schnibbles pero son sólo para habitantes de EEUU y yo vivo en Argentina! Es una verdadera pena! Gracias a Ud! Saludos!

  118. In reading Carrie Nelson's blog this morning she mentioned to come on over and enter your giveaway. Being a lover of all things Carrie Nelson I hurried on over for a chance to win. Please enter me!!! PS it was also a good reminder/excuse to drop in to see what you are up to. Love the quilts!

  119. I Just made my first Schnibbles and can see many more in my future. Great finishes everyone!

  120. I've been loving the Schnibbles patterns and I'd really like to make up that kit…and receiving the book would be such a treat! Thanks for the contest!

  121. I have been admiring that quilt for quite a long time. It is on my 'to quilt' list. I would love winning the kit. Pat

  122. I have been searching all my LQS and they are all sold out of Schnibbles Times Two AND Spice of Life Quilts (so depressing for me, but great new for Carrie!), so this is perfect timing! Besides, if I win this one it will be signed by Carrie, how fun is that? Then I just need to locate a Spice of Life Quilts and I'll be all set!!! I also adore the quilt kit your giving away. Thanks so much to both the wonderful FQS and to Carrie and Rosie for a chance to have this awesome Schnibbles treasure. I'm really keeping my fingers and toes crossed on this one. **Ahem…just a little side note here, our wedding anniversay is the 24th of this month…42 years to the only man I ever dated! just thought I'd mention it, LOL** Hey, a girl needs all the help she can get, right? All the same, "Good Luck to Everyone".

  123. I surfed over from V&Co. I love Schnibbles!! It gives me great joy to take a little bit and make a beautiful quilt!

  124. I LOVE LOVE LOVE schnibbles and Miss Rosie! I actually emailed Carrie Nelson a month or so ago about when Joy Luck quilt pattern was going to be released, as I saw it on her website and knew I had to make it. I ordered it from FQShop as soon as it was available. I am a relatively new quilter and would really appreciate having the quilt kit.

  125. I love that fabric and your schnibble patterns are so fun. I can even get them done and I feel so accomplished.

  126. I love the idea of "huge" geese..and the colors in this kit are great…aren't you glad Lissa did pester you? what a lovely result!! Thanks for the chance to win the kit!!

  127. Would love the chance to win this wonderful giveaway. Miss Rosie's patterns are the best. The Schnibbles patterns are so fun to make. Thanks for the chance to win. Karen M

  128. Such beautiful quilts. They are all so pretty.

    What a wonderful giveaway. I would love to win that quilt kit and the book too.

  129. I found out about your giveaway over at Rosie's place. I'd love to be entered for the kit. All the quilts pictured are just beautiful.

  130. I so admire the Schnibbles quilts and would love to win this kit and especially the book. What a great offer. Laura

  131. Carrie is such a gracious and giving lady. What a clever idea to make a small quilt from charms and a larger one from cakes with all these delightful patterns. I just received my copy of Schnibbles Times Two and the biggest problem is deciding which quilt to make first – right now I am leaning toward Hot Cross!

  132. I made the giveaway kit from a workshop I took, and it turned out beautiful! – used the Jan Patek' – Harmony line. Would love the chance to win this kit and book!

  145. I want to win! But I already have the Schnibbles Times Two with pages marked and comments (from myself) about who I am making the quilts for, etc!! Maybe if I win I can swap for your other book since the Times Two is the only one I own?!?!? I am currently working on Picnic in Frolic and I love it.. *sigh*

  146. I love these Schnibbles quilts — and the kit is beautiful. If I win I promise to send a pic for show and tell 🙂

  147. Such a pretty quilt (as are all your quilts, Carrie)! I can't wait for your new fabric — another reason to be excited about October! I'm working on 2 Schnibbles & a Schnibbles x 2 right now but I'd find time to Lumiere de McGuffey if I won this beautiful kit!!


  148. I love the Bennington quilt – very cool with the white! I'm also saying hello and thanks for the quilt kit giveaway opportunity! You guys are fabulous.

  149. I haven't done a Schnibbles yet but I love layer cakes and I'm excited to try it. Thanks for the chance to start!!

  150. My favourite designer, and I had to miss her on her visit to Canada. My son's wedding took precidence. Love the pattern and fabric.

  151. Anything Miss Rosie is wonderful. In my early quilting days I drove school bus for the McGuffey School District, in Pennsylvania. The McGuffey quilt would bring back memories! Thanks for the great blog and sharing! Carol in Troy, ID

  152. The quilts are all beautiful! Glad I'm not the one who has to choose. Thanks for doing this giveaway. I'd love to win.

  153. Guess who sent me over – Vanessa from V and Co.:) I would love to win this quilt kit!! Thanks for the chance!

  154. I would LOVE to win the kit for this beautiful quilt. Working on "Elizabeth" at the moment. Really beautiful and goes together perfectly! 🙂

  155. Miss Rosie sent me — she told me I HAD to enter — I had to ask my dog to translate tho… those Schnibbles.

  156. I HAVE the book and it is wonderful. I've had a hard time picking out what I want to make, so if I win this–it will make the decision for me (and I'll give the book I own to my friend who loved it so much she actually got drool on the cover, which I had to wipe off, and anyway it's a long story).

    Thanks for running this giveawy, and thanks for your blog. It's one of my favs.

  157. What a nice thing to do ladies- I do have both of Carrie's books and am looking forward to making a schnibble quilt. It would be lovely to win the Kit with layer cake fabrics.
    Warmest regards from Western Canada,

  158. We have recently created a Schnibbles & Bits Club at Thimbles & Threads in Draper, Utah and we are so excited to piece Schnibbles we have a difficult time deciding which pattern to sew next! I'd absolutely love to win your Schnibbles Times Two book!

  159. Wonderful giveaway! I have the new Schnibbles but haven't made anything yet…this is inspiring…let's g get some fabric and begin!

  160. A signed schnibbles book would be amazing, & the kit a lovely bonus
    I have all my fingers & toes crossed

  161. inspiration is flowing with all the beautiful material and patterns – just means no time for boring things like housework i have to be busy making quilts!!!

  162. Oh I'd love to win the kit!! I've printed my directions and put them with my book (which I LOVE!) but the kit would be AWESOME!!!

  163. Win that beautiful kit?? Are you kidding?!? Thank you! WHat a fun opportunity! Oh, BTW, V & CO sent me this way. I had no idea y'all had a blog!

  164. I have the pattern book already and I have fallen in love with the fabric collection as any warm reds make my heart sing. I have worked on Carrie's patterns before and appreciate her detail and how even I, a math-a-phobic can come out with excellent results. Keep making beautiful designs.

  165. I think I have a bit of a girl crush on Carrie Nelson. Not only is she talented and witty, but she really deserves an award for Miss Congeniality of the Quilting World. If I had a diamond tiara, I'd send it to her. I'll have to think on that idea a bit. In the meantime, please enter me in the giveaway. Thanks!

  166. I've collected several Schnibbles patterns but haven't gotten around to sewing them yet – I must change that!

  167. It's 12 months since I got my sewing machine; 10 months since I was introduced to Schnibbles and well what more can I say Carrie you are a beautiful person and so are your quilts

  168. How can I simply say how much I love Schnibbles?

    Okay – simply said – I LOVE SCHNIBBLES !

    We are blessed to have Carrie create these ever growing popular patterns! I can do one and think it's my favorite and then I do another one – and find out I like it just as much.

    I "AM" a Schnibble-holic..I need help……..(in the way of layer cakes and charm packs…LOL)

  169. Seeing all of your projects inspires me! Your shop is so easy to navigate – I can go straight to my favorite fabrics (right now it's Michael Miller Brady Bunch line)!

  170. I have several of the Schnibbles patterns. They are all great! It's too difficult to choose a favorite.

    The new book is great too!

  171. Carrie, I'm now making the quilt on the cover of "Spice". for my son and plan to have a couple of Schnibbles done before Thanksgiving. Love your work. Laura M.
