    I have the Schnibbles book too, and love it. Not only shows you big quilts, but also has little quilt to make as well. Bowtie's are my all-time favorite block. thanks for sharing, wonderful work.

    Went online and found this.

    Schnibble: noun A scrap of fabric; a leftover bit of cloth; a small piece.
    Yeah, I knew that, but, to me, even though this is a small quilt, the pieces don't seem like a "scrap", or a "leftover bit".

    Seems to me that there used to be a book, or maybe a technique where tiny pieces of fabric -- little fiingernail size -- were used to make mosaic-like, torn-piece fabric "paintings" where the pieces were fused and/or thread painted down. Anybody else remember what I'm talking about?

    By the definition here, it appears *any* miniture quilt could be called a schnibble.

    Not trying to argue, just tgrying to understand and learn.
