Schnibbling: everyone is doing it (+ giveaway)


Martingale authors inspire each other: A version of Carrie Nelson’s “X-Rated,” as pieced and quilted by Kim Brackett. Don’t miss Kim’s just-released ePatterns.

 

My first question, “What the heck is a schnibble?” was answered with a quick flip through Schnibbles Times Two, where author Carrie Nelson writes with her characteristic humor, “having had a past experience with using words that didn’t mean exactly what I thought they did, I did what any twenty-first-century girl would do–I searched Google for the word ‘schnibble’. . . it turned out that this quirky little word actually means a scrap, small bits of cloth, or leftover bits of fabric.”

Admittedly, the schnibbles of fabric used in Carrie’s patterns usually come from gorgeous Moda Charm Packs and Layer Cakes rather than the floor. Carrie’s love of working with precut sets has led to a wildly popular pattern line and two Martingale books, Schnibbles Times Two and Another Bite of Schnibbles.

Our Editor in Chief, Mary Green, recently finished a Schnibbles quilt for her son and daughter-in-law as a housewarming present (shown left). She based it on “Imagine” from Schnibbles Times Two and pieced the pillow fronts from the leftovers.

I’m pausing for a moment to admire her handiwork; maybe someday I’ll get there. I am not yet a seasoned schnibbler, but I’ve seen firsthand how a quilter who knows what she’s doing reacts to these patterns. I visited my aunt last spring for my first-ever quilting lesson and found a copy of Schnibbles Times Two sitting by her sewing machine. Although I had told her I could bring her any Martingale books she wanted from our Book Room, she had felt such a lust to schnibble that she ordered it online rather than wait for me to bring a copy.

Although I enjoyed my quilting lesson tremendously, I’m going to show off my aunt’s Schnibbles quilt rather than my (ahem) unfinished attempt. Here’s Glenda Wright’s version of "X-Rated," at right.

My aunt is one of many quilters who find Carrie’s patterns both accessible and inspiring, as evidenced by the lovely quilts in our Schnibbles contest and the collection of Schnibbles quilts below.

I had to ask Carrie about the popularity of her patterns.

Palmer: People love making Schnibbles quilts so much, they have "Schnibbles Parades" and "Schnibbles State Fairs." What do you think is the main attraction of these patterns? The yummy Charm Packs and Layer Cakes? The patterns in two sizes? The excuse to use the word "schnibble?"

Carrie: All of the above, and more.

Yes, the Charm Packs and Layer Cakes are one reason, as they let me play with a fabulous new fabric collection that doesn’t go with a single thing in my house, without making a huge investment of money or time.

Having options when it comes to the size of the quilt is great–except when the friend whose birthday is next month now expects the bigger quilt of the pair. It’s also nice to know the same design will work for a baby quilt and a graduation gift–though probably not in the same fabric.

They’ve been called “scribbles,” “scrittles,” and “skibbles,” though surprisingly, nobody has called them “skittles” yet. I guess that’s because nobody EVER gets candy confused with anything else.

I think the appeal is also the relatively instant gratification–these quilts really don’t take that long to make.

All of that makes them fun, and in the slightly-edited words of Dr. Seuss: [Schnibbles are] fun and fun is good.

Palmer: Can it be a verb? Can one say “I’m schnibbling?”

Carrie: I don’t know why not. I’ve used it that way, as in, “I’m schnibbling this weekend.” “To schnibble or not to schnibble”–I think Bill would approve!


Satisfied that I’m using the word properly, I reached out to several bloggers who’ve posted photos of their Schnibbles quilts. These quilts are not only beautiful, they demonstrate how well Carrie’s patterns adapt to different fabric choices. Look at the variety!

“I have been coming back every day and reading all of the fun comments people have been making! I am a total Schnibble addict and I see no end in sight. All it took was a fun little pattern by Carrie Nelson and a couple of charm packs from my stash and I got hooked! It’s not only a great way to use up your stash but it’s fun to try new techniques and just play! An added bonus of being in the Schnibble parades is you get to see new little twists to the pattern that make you want to make another one and that’s how the addiction begins! I am a Schnibbler: http://pinkpincushion.blogspot.com/2011/12/are-you-ready-for-another-year.html.”

Beatrice and Sinta, we’ll email you special coupon codes for your free eBooks. Congratulations!

  • I just discovered Schnibbles! And I’m working on my first pattern, Mon Ami which I adore. Don’t have any photos yet, but I’m creating it using 1930’s reproduction fabrics – its going to be simply darling!

  • I am a regular schnibbler, and I own both of Carrie’s books, and several of her single patterns! J’adore! I *love* the humour she injects into her instructions, and look forward to choosing charm packs with an eye to which schnibble to make. 🙂

  • I have never done schnibbled, or even heard of it, but it looks like fun and I would love to learn. If I won the books, it would give me a reason to try.

    —Jeanenne Nielsen on May 4, 2012
  • I was taught by my Mom that a schnibble is a little scrap of anything! When I was an art teacher and we would finish a project, I would tell the kids to "pick up their schnibbles!" Of course I had to tell them what schnibbles are. They even had a "Schnibble Patrol" to clean up the room! I was delighted when I first saw the patterns using schnibbles. Haven’t made one yet—but need to—-I have plenty of schnibbles!!!

    —Claudia on May 4, 2012

    —Sue on May 4, 2012
  • I havent yet but would love to win these books to see what its all about!

    Kate Brown on May 4, 2012
  • Schnibble me this! I guess I’ve been doing the deed, except I was just calling it "let’s make a small quilt from left-over scraps from making bigger quilts." Much easier to say Schnibble!

    Your rules are unfair to those of us who do not have web sites with links. I protest in the name of all Schnibble people without links! Boo! Hiss! Boo!

    I just purchased two charm packs, "Fire" and "Water" from the Kaffe Fasset collection so I could have a Schnibbling weekend! Whoo-Hoo!

    —Crazy Cuban on May 4, 2012
  • I Have not made a Schnibbles pattern yet although as I type I am looking at Sunday Best pattern that I ordered along with 3Pkg. of Vintage Modern charm packs to use for it.I would like to give the Schnibbles books a good home.

  • My sister got me going on Schnibbles Times Two–and one of hers is pictured in the above slide show, she is Chris at Cats on my Quilts.

    I’m presently working on Hot Cross, making a matching set for a mom and daughter. I’ve got the smaller one sewn together, waiting to get to the quilters when the larger is all set to go: http://indomitableangela.blogspot.com/2012/03/quilt-for-kaylee.html

    I also made Bennington, it was a fun quilt to work on, http://indomitableangela.blogspot.com/2011/06/quilt-for-dave-and-reesie.html I made for the top of my husband’s man chair, where his side kick Reesie cat likes to perch.

    My sister was right when she told me these patterns go together smooth as butter–they do!

  • Being a faithful reader of Jo’s Country Junction, I followed her link to your blog. It’s all her fault – I am now a schnibbler wannabe! You had me hooked with the first photos of Mary Green’s blue and chocolate quilt and pillows. Beautiful designs, gorgeous fabrics, great inspiration from her and your fellow bloggers. 🙂

    —Laura on May 4, 2012

    —Jennifer on May 4, 2012
  • I ran across Carrie’s blog about 2 yrs ago when I was first learning to quilt but didn’t go too deeply into her site as I was searching for tutorials on how to quilt. I remembered how much I just loved all the quilts on her site and her patterns however. Then about a month ago I ran across her site again through another blog I had been following and then won a giveaway on her blog. She sent me two of her patterns but I haven’t made anything from those yet as there were some health problems in my family that took us out of state for a few days and then the stress from another direction from our children so my mind just hasn’t been into quilting other than to read blogs. I do have her books on my Amazon wish list and have hoped to get them because I’m sure there is much more info in those books than just the patterns. I know they would be a great thing to have for a wonderful resource as well as for the awesome quilt patterns.

    —VickiT on May 4, 2012
  • I want to be a Schnibbler, too!! My aunt recently gave me some fabric that had belonged to my grandmother, and is from the 50’s to the 80’s. I cannot wait to use some of that fabric for a Schnibbles project. I love ’em all!! Thanks for the giveaway..

    thanks for the great giveaway. Maybe I will be going to the schnibbles side soon.

    —Lee on May 5, 2012
  • Shnibbles is a new term for me, not a new activity. I have been putting left over scraps together both by hand and machine for years. I have a multitude of half square triangles and other little square waiting for when I have time from other projects to be assebled into something. Now when asked by friends what I am working on I can say "I’m Shnibbling". Oh how I would love to win these books!

    —Christina Mackenzie on May 5, 2012
  • It looks like there are a few links to those who have made Schnibbles quilts before. Alas, I am a blogless "new quilter" compared to those who have posted and have not yet made a Schnibbles. Is there a reason you are excluding those who have never made a Schnibbles quilt yet might want to win a copy to try it? I would like to enter this giveaway if possible.

    —MarciaW on May 5, 2012
  • I have so many scraps, I made one quilt last year out of them and didn’t even put a dent in them. I always need good ideas to use them. Thanks for the chance to win.

    —Nancy Danish on May 5, 2012
  • I have Carrie’s first book and would love to win her second schnibble book. I haven’t made a schnibble yet, but hope to do so soon.

    —Cecilia on May 5, 2012
  • I need to start schnibbling!!! Looks like it might become quite addicting. Would love to win. It would be such a big decision on which quilt to start my schnibbling journey

    —Donna W on May 5, 2012
  • I have not tried this technique either, but I would love to. Have seen the books at quilt stores but haven’t purchased one yet.

    —Michele Dawson on May 5, 2012
  • i don’t have a camera but i definitely schnibble

    —linda on May 5, 2012
  • Just about every quilt I make is a form of scrapes, I did not know it was called Schnibble. I have so much scrapes that my husband said to not be wasting so much time going through the mess. It is always fun to see how other quilters use up the scrapes and make them always one of a kind, so I would love to win a book.

    —Linda C on May 5, 2012
  • I L-O-V-E everything Schnibbles! Here’s a link to the first one I made and it graces my dining room table even today. If it is not a ‘clickable’ link, just copy and paste the link information into your browser and away you’ll go!

    http://thepaintedquilt.blogspot.ca/2010/07/blogging-friends-are-best.html

    This particular Schnibbles pattern is called "Picnic" and it’s my favorite. I’d love to win Carrie’s books and thanks for the opportunity!

  • No, I’ve never snibbled any beautiful quilts like theese – at most some pot-holder to give away!

    —Inger Martinson on May 5, 2012
  • I’ve just returned from a month touring around the USA with so many yards of irresistible fabrics that I was wondering what I would do with all those beautiful colours and themes – until I came across your Schnibbles patterns and straight away I knew this was the answer! Can’t wait to get over the jet lag and start sewing…..

    —Bronwyn Parsons on May 5, 2012
  • I have a William Morris grouping all set to make "Imagine" from the first Schnibbles book. I loved seeing the blue and brown one is this blog posting.

  • Schnibble is a new word for me. I liked "Oso" and "Bennington" in blue & brown. With a little bit of imagination and some left over fabric, I to can have a Schnibble quilt. Thanks for the chance to win the ebooks.

  • Alas…..I have not schnibbled yet!Looks like I may soon though. Especially if I win the books!!!!Wouldn’t that be exciting. I’m especially interested in the hot cross buns(?). Oh that’s food again. Well you really must get me busy with something fun and fast. My current project (at my daughters request) is driving me nuts!All bias edges and curved seams or set in seams. I long for some fun and this looks like just the thing, even the name is fun!

  • I would love to be a schnibbler. I think it would be great to win one of these books. If I don’t, it will be on my list of wants!

  • I have never done schnibbling, but it looks like fun and I would love to learn. Therefore, I will take the "necessaries" with me on my next retreat! I love the idea of SMALL quilts, I have made biggies and given them away. Now it is time for ME, ME, ME and what I want!!!!!

  • All this time I have been Schnibbling and didn’t even know it! LOL Perhaps I need these books to help me do it properly.

  • I am a regular Schnibbler…and a huge fan of Carrie!

  • I must be one of few who have yet to Schnibble, so it must be "everyone minus one" which of course is me. Thusly, I must be a winner of a Snibbles book so I can turn into a "plus one" ;P

  • I would say I have scnibbled, but didn’t know it! Definitely not officially since I haven’t seen these books yet. Sounds like I need one!
    Thanks for the giveaway and the great post.
    By the way, Jo sent me to your blog. http://www.joscountryjunction.com

  • What wonderful traditional designs! I have lots of scraps I could use. I hope to hear I won a copy!

  • I started Schnibbling with The Le Petite group last year and have continued on this year with the Another Year of Schnibbles group. One of my favorites Schinibbles is my Spot Christmas Quilt. http://quilteddelights.blogspot.com/2012/02/spot-is-finished.html

  • I have been coming back every day and reading all of the fun comments people have been making! I am a total Schnibble addict and I see no end in site! All it took was a fun little pattern by Carrie Nelson and a couple of charm packs from my stash and I got hooked! It’s not only a great way to use up your stash but it’s fun to try new techniques and just play!
    An added bonus of being in the Schnibble parades is you get to see new little twists to the pattern that make you
    want to make another one and that’s how
    the addiction begins!

  • Oh yes, I forgot to say, that I am a Schnibbler…
