My favorite Schnibble so far......


...........is Tagalong!

I used Bar Harbor fabric here, which was appropriate since we lived in Maine at one time and we took a great vacation to Bar Harbor! 






With so many to choose from why is Tagalong my favorite?

Well, because it was my first Schnibble!  It's how I got the bug!

I was reading blogs, but I hadn't gotten up the nerve to start my own blog yet, and I wanted to see what these Schnibbles parades and projects were all about.







It looked like fun to make a little project, share it with bloggers, and admire their Schnibbles too.  

Once I started I couldn't stop!

It wasn't long until I started my own blog, so I could join the kind, supportive, friendly group of quilters  who make Schnibbles!








Carrie Nelson is the creative mind behind all of the Schnibbles patterns......and she's got tons of other amazing patterns too.  From large to and really, really small!

If you haven't made one of her projects yet, you really need to give them a try.  But be warned, they are like potato chips, you can't have just one!








Sherri and Sinta have done a wonderful job of keeping up with all of the Schnibblers and their projects too!  No small feat!   Thank you ladies so much for all of the time you put into this and for all of your your hard work!!  

They will be having a parade of favorites any day now.  Be sure to go on over, visit, and enjoy the show!


By the way, I know there are way too many pictures of just one quilt on this post.  My helper and I were enjoying taking the photos outside, so we took lots and decided this was just as far as we could narrow them down, so I just thought why not include them all!

Nice! I love your little quilt. I'm so glad you started a blog and joined our Another Year of Schnibbles too. I enjoy the parades seeing all the different fabrics. We went to Bar Harbor Maine a few years ago on a Canada/New England cruise.

Is there such a thing as too many pictures of your favorite Schnibble quilt? I don't think so...especially one so cute.

I love your Tagalong Schnibble. It's bold and pretty and I just love red, white and blue (Minnik and Simpson in particular). I'm a blog reader not writer too. The schnibble parade has led me to a lot of great blogs.

Cheryl said...

No wonder it is your favorite! Glad it inspired you to blog, although blogging can consume so much of our sewing time...LOL.

Looks great and summery. Never been to Bar Harbor but on my "someday" trip list.

Love the joyful inner border of bubbles. All the blocks are different, while still the same colors! Good Job!

What a lovely Schnibbles story - they got you into blogging - that's great! Great choice for your favorite too! You are right about not being able to do just one! I need to count my Schnibbles - I have no idea how many I've made!
