June Schnibble - Leap Year

Leap Year

Schnibbles Parade
All of us who participated last month on either Sinta's blog or Sherri's blog were given a new pattern, Leap Year, by Carrie of Miss Rosie's Quilt Company even before it was available!  How cool is that?  Be sure you check the Schnibbles Parades again on July 1st, just like every month, on Sinta's and Sherri's blogs.  You'll see all of the pictures participants post of this quilt and find out the project for next month.  To me, Schnibbles are really fun projects.  Most take two charm packs plus background but I've done a couple that took only one charm pack.  I made Leap Year using fabrics from my '30's box.  Each square is one fabric plus white.  I haven't decided if I'll use one fabric for the binding or make it scrappy.  I'll quilt it before I decide and see how I feel that day.

I hope everyone (at least those of us in the northern hemisphere) is enjoying summerI have most of my garden in and just have a couple of things left to plant.  



  1. It's beautiful, Mary! These Schnibbles are such adorable quilts!

  2. It's a delightful little quilt, I love that block too, just a little different from your average 9-patch!!!

  3. '30's prints are perfect for this quilt. Very crisp and fresh. I'll be interested to see how you decide to quilt it.

  4. Mary, this is another beautiful quilt! Great job!

  5. Sweet quilt! Love your fabric choices.
    Well done.
    Your garden sounds like it is coming along. I have an ample basil crop this year.

  6. Perfectly sweet Mary! I think Leap Year is a great way to use/showcase your scraps or other treasured pieces!

  7. great quilt oh I am going to have to make this one too! I love how light and airy yours is.
    great fabric choices...
