    This is my first Schnibble small quilt. The pattern is from Carrie Nelson's book Schnibbles Times Two. I love the Civil War era prints and colors. It's about 29 inches square. Bought backing and binding today. I think it will be a wallhanging in my newly re-painted sewing room...as soon as it gets newly re-painted. Thanks for looking.

    I forgot to say that I used two charm packs of fabric from the same designer. The one that looks like a stripe is actually a print of teeny tiny flying geese.

    Gosh I may have to change my mind about Civil War prints. I have not been a fan, but I REALLY like this quilt.

    What I like about the book is that she shows the same pattern made from both "layer cakes" and "charm packs." I want to try the same one in the bigger size, maybe with 1930's prints. I love bowtie blocks.

    Why is it called "schnibbles"? It looks like pretty direct snowballed bow-ties to me?

    It's lovely though!!

    That's the name that the designer, Carrie Nelson, uses for her small quilt patterns. I think it means "little bits" or something like that. The patterns are sold individually but I got this from one of her books....and it is just a snowball/bowtie in a small scale.

    Went online and found this.

    Schnibble: noun A scrap of fabric; a leftover bit of cloth; a small piece. The word has a German origin and is found primarily in German settlements in the Midwest.


    From the Dictionary of American Regional English published by the Harvard University Press.
