A Year of Schnibbles- Sample

This month's quilt is Sample by Carrie Nelson from Miss Rosies Quilt Company. Patterns are not available from the website now so I have not linked it. I bought mine from Fat Quarter Shop  
Sample is made using 2 1/2 inch squares or mini charm packs.
I used a charm pack of Glow by Amy Butler. The background and sashing is Bella Snow.

I decided to make Sample No 1, which is the one set on point. I didn't read the number of blocks required very well, so just kept on making them, and ended up with 20. Not liking waste of work and materials I decided to make a smaller version of sample No 2 with the remaining blocks (plus a reject and an extra)
These blocks are little. They finish at 4 1/2 inches - very cute little blocks. The larger Sample finishes at 28 1/2 inches and the small one at 19 3/4 inches.

The photos are hasty seeing we are working at the last minute here, and I couldn't decide a nice way to display them. The late summer/  autumn flowers in pots were my first port of call.

I am joining the monthly parade with Sinta at Pink Pincushion and  Sherri at A Quilting Life


  1. Wow - those tiny blocks are impressive. The hot pink binding works well on the smaller one.

  2. Very nice...both are so different looking and wound not know it is part of the same them.
