My first Schibble

Have you Schnibbled?  If you've visited Sherri you know what I'm talking about. 
I've seen the adorable Schibbles patterns for a while, but I've never made one.
Until now.
This one is for the store where I "work". For the one I made, I basically used whatever American Jane stuff was still on hand at the shop, plus a few other retro looking prints. 
It came from this pattern book. Includes LOTS of great patterns. 
I made the small version. I think I want to try the big version too and keep it for myself. :)
 
Speaking of American Jane, did you hear that she has a new collection coming out in August?  
Exciting news!  I'm not even sure how many American Jane quilts I've made.
Or how many more I could make with the stash I have.

Post edit: I'm linking up to Amy's Sew and Tell.  She has pretty much the cutest finished project (new baby!) this week. I can't even to begin to compete. :)

I haven't done a schibble yet, but I have a couple that are on 'the list'. Yours looks wonderful, great 'work' - the few others that I've loved have also been done in American Jane. The colors are so happy.

I saw Punctuation last week on FQ and just smiled!

Love that book and LOVE your quilt! Just received the book and can't wait to start Schnibbling! The X-Rated quilt you made is first on my list as well and after seeing yours, I just might have to track down some of that American Jane! Very cute!

I'm in the middle of this same pattern! I love the bright colors from the American Jane collection. You're right, the book is chock full of fun patterns. Ever since I bought mine, I've been toting it around from one room to another to peruse while I eat breakfast, watch TV, go to bed, etc.

Great quilt! Love those happy colors - so yay for new American Jane!

Katy said...

such a cute quilt. Obviously everything is cute in American Jane - I'd heard she had a new line coming out, but I hadn't seen it til now. I think it goes without saying I'll be stocking up...big time ;)

Lauren said...

Oh my gosh I love that new line from American Jane.

The quilt you made is adorable. What I would do to work for a quilting shop that paid me to quilt. What an awesome job.

It's lovely Amy! I did happen to see that there is a new line of American Jane coming out... I will need to enhance my stash with some I think. I missed the first few lines and I would desperately love some Wee Play but by george it seems everyone is holding onto that one for dear life :)

Hope you've had a happy week!

Believe it or not, but Sherri was at my house today. (We live an hour apart). She is QUEEN of Schnibbles. I have only made one as a baby quilt for a gift, and look forward to more in my future. Love anything American Jane.

Crafty Mama said...

Love it!! I just got that book too, and can't wait to make all the fabulous quilts in it!

So excited about punctuation! IT just looks so pretty!

Love your Quilt! I wish I had all of that talent!

Do you quilt your quilts yourself or take them somewhere?

Sherri said...

Great quilt...this is one I've been wanting to make! I know it's one of Carrie's favorites too!

Mary on Lake Pulaski said...

You've been Schnibbled Amy! Love the Punctuation too!

amy smart said...

Jolie - I usually take my quilts to a friend. I can't take credit for the quilting at all! (In fact, it's my greatest quilting weakness.) :)
