For me 'Another Year of Schnibbles' is really A First Year of Schnibbles. Sinta at Pink Pincushion and Sherry at A Quilting Life host the program. Each month they announce the pattern and assemble every one's finished photos and create a parade on the first of the following month.
While I have enjoyed the previous parades, and even purchased the book used for last year's Another Year of Schnibbles, I have never joined in.
Since I have a new found freedom and more time in my sewing room I thought I'd play along this year. There is no guarantee I'll make every one but I did make September's and purchased the next suggested pattern.
Whit is one of Miss Rosie's new designs called Little Bites. It is these 'Little Bites' that will be worked into this new year of Another Year of Schnibbles adding the 'Little Bit More' in the title.
I chose to use 2 mini charm packs of Lexington. My background was a fabric out of my stash called A Quilter's Garden by Bird Brain Designs. The little blue dots matched perfectly.
Pin wheels are one of my favorite blocks so I placed my blues in such a way that they would create a pinwheel that stood out. The pattern wasn't necessarily made with one focus fabric standing out but that's the beauty of fabric and patterns. I little change can give one quilt a whole different look from another.
These blocks finish at 4 inches!
I took my completed Whit outside to enjoy a little bit of fall spender.
Off to enjoy another wonder fall day.
