My Schnibbles Parade!


Here is my Schnibbles Parade that Sherri and Sinta organized over the last 12 months, together with Carrie, the designer of Schnibbles. It was lots and lots of fun, each and every single time. Everytime I made one, I thought that that was my favorite one. Mmm, how does that work? After looking at them all again, I concluded that there are two winners for me. The black/white one (which I am showing here for the first time) and Plan C (the last picture, photo on the left). But then, if I look again, I also like the State Fair a lot (second to last picture, photo on the left). I guess it's difficult to choose, because they are all so very different in design and fabric.
From these Schnibbles, I have learned a lot. It was the first time I used charm packs, the first time I combined colors with a white background (thanks to Kathy Mack from Pink Chalk Studio, who advised this background to me for Picnic - third picture, photo on the left), the first time I experimented with different kinds of colors etc. etc.
Do you have a favorite, looking at these Schnibbles? And why? I would love to hear from you!
Thank you, Carrie, Sherri and Sinta, for having organized this wonderful year!!!

Hier is mijn Schnibbles Parade, die Sherri en Sinta de afgelopen 12 maanden georganiseerd hebben, samen met de ontwerpster van de patronen, Carrie. Iedere Schnibbles opnieuw was heel erg leuk te maken! Iedere keer als ik er eentje gemaakt had, dacht ik dat dat tot nu toe nu mooiste was. Mmm, hoe werkt dat? Nadat ik ze nu allemaal nog eens goed bekeken heb, springen er twee absolute favorieten uit, namelijk de zwart/witte (die ik hier voor het eerst laat zien - bovenste foto) en Plan C (laaste foto links). Uiteindelijk is het heel moeilijk te kiezen, want ze zijn allemaal zo anders, qua patroon en stof.
Ik heb heel veel van het maken van deze Schnibbles geleerd! Het is de eerste keer dat ik met charm packs gewerkt heb, de eerste keer dat ik wit als achtergrond stof heb gebruikt (op advies van Kathy Mack van Pink Chalk Studios), de eerste keer dat ik met verschillende kleuren geëxperimenteerd heb, enz. enz.
Komt er voor jullie een favoriet uit? En waarom? Ik zou het erg leuk vinden, dat van jullie te horen!
Carrie, Sherri en Sinta, heel erg bedankt, voor het organiseren van dit jaar!!!

Dolores zei

Wow, that black and white one is striking. You have been VERY productive and it must be nice to look back and see all those gorgeous quilts.

Amanda zei

It's difficult to choose a favourite, as they all look so good, but I think it would have to be the black and white one. It's so dramatic and clean looking.

Terry zei

Your Schnibbles parade is amazing! You made so many beautiful quilts this year! :0)

My top 4 are Winter White, Plan C, Roundabout and State Fair. They're all gorgeous but those are my favorites. You've done a great job of keeping up with making and finishing them!

Wickedly Divine Creations zei

Madeline is absolutely gorgeous. You don't really see many quilts done is black and white...its beautiful.
I love all you scnibbles but I think Madeline and winter white are my favourite :D

Sharon (Stitches on Mars) zei

What a fantastic parade Simone,
They were all lovely but I think my 2 faves were Madeline and Winter White. I especially loved the little birds in the centres and the strong contrast...very yummy. As for the WW, I just loved the colours and the flying geese.
Hugs, Sharon

Béa zei

Wonderful parade, Simone, like you I loved every month !

Just-Do zei

Wat een fantastische parade is dit. Mijn favoriet is absoluut 'Plan C' vanwege de kleurtjes die je daarbij hebt gebruikt. Heel vrolijk en toch strak door het patroon.
Wat een werk. CHAPEAU!!!

I like all of them, but I must say the black and white has pulled me toward it! Great job to everyone of them - Hugs Nat

Wat een leuke parade Simone. De quiltjes zijn allemaal erg leuk geworden. Moeilijk kiezen hoor. Zo van de foto's is nr. 1 mijn favoriet of de voorlaatste.. of... ik weet het echt niet.
Ik ga er eens over denken om volgend jaar mee te doen. Toch wel erg leuk om zoveel afo's te hebben op het eind van het jaar.

I think there's something special about Roundabout. They are all so lovely. Your latest one reminds me of caligraphy- very smart looking too. I can see it in a modern themed room looking stunning.

hetty zei

Ohhhh! Love your parade! They are all beautiful, but that black and white one is super fantastic.

Satu zei

Fabulous parade, Simone! You are definitely right, it's really difficult to choose the prettiest one. Maybe it's State Fair (because of colours) or Plan C (I like the model) or no... I LoVE them ALL;) PS. I'n in this year - Pattern of Paganini and two charm packs of Bliss are waiting me on the cutting mat... Exciting;)

Anoniem zei

Ze zijn allemaal erg mooi en ik heb verschillende in levende lijve mogen zien. Maar mijn favoriete is Roundabout en Plan C. Tot volgende week, ik verheug me er weer op.

Anoniem zei

Oh, they are all stunning but the black and white is really really nice. You did a great job keeping up with them all.
Thanks for stopping by my blog. That is pretty neat that we have the same quotes on our blogs.

Jutta...stoffundnadel... zei

Simone, deine Galerie ist ganz wunderbar, eine Freude für die Augen.
Lange habe ich mir alle Fotos angesehen, mein Favorit ist der schwarz-weiße Schnibbles, weil er ganz anders aussieht wie die anderen.
Alle Schnibbles sind sensationell!!! Herzlichen Glückwunsch dazu !!!!

Deine Jutta

Theresa zei

Every single one of them is stunning and so beautifully made - it's impossible to choose a favourite. I am going to say the black and white though because it's so striking and very classy looking.
I was tempted by La Petite but I think I would have to give up on sleep altogether to fit it in, lol!

Nanette Merrill and daughters zei
