Cindy Lou Who Schnibbles

As many of you know, last year I took a quilt class where we made wall hanging size quilts using "Schnibbles" patterns. This year we are doing more Schnibbles but in lap quilt sizes (or larger). Our second pattern was titled "Cindy Lou Who." I wanted to use the Moda fabric line, "Simply Color." I LOVED the color selection but didn't think ahead for this pattern. The pattern was relatively easy to piece but color selection is a must! Because of this, I modified my quilt. But come to think of it, I modify nearly every quilt I make! Lol. So, I guess it shouldn't surprise me. Anyway, I'm posting pics of my fabric choice and my quilt. You'll see my modifications when you see the other classmates' quilts. I cropped out my classmates' faces.... Mainly because I forgot to get their permission to post their faces. I missed a couple of the quilts. It was a crazy day. The last quilt had fabrics that were used in three of the classmates quilts. My favorite outcome, is Judy's, next to last photo. Love those fabrics in finished project.

My quilt is now in the loving hands of Sydneykatt. I think she will vouch for the fact the quilt is much prettier in person. I gave this top to her because she loved it. I hope she enjoys it. It is a very small token of my appreciation for her friendship. Ours was an unlikely friendship but a blessing in all ways. Luv u Sydneykatt. And to all our blogging friends, please tell those around you how much they mean to you! Your blogging buddy, Quiltpecan

  1. Thank-you so much Quiltpecan! I was so excited, I took the quilt to local quilt shop to be quilted immediately! I can't tell you how moved I was that you gave this to me! I have loved quilts since the first one my Mother made out of old fabric remnants, that has been long gone. I always loved the feeling of having a quilt over me. It was like loving arms around me. I guess we all like that feeling. Thank-you again for being such a friend and true blessing in my life! Sydneykatt
