Another bite of schnibbles book review

The greatest thing about my job is that I get to work on projects in advance of their release date to the world. The bad thing about that is sometimes I don’t have much to blog about. Of course, this is no excuse for my lack of posts. I am also lucky because I happen to have a neighbor across the hall from me that is kind enough to show me all the new books and patterns streaming in. So to win back my loyal readers and anyone else that is bored to death,  I am going to do a book review for the next several days starting with Carrie Nelson of Miss Rosie’s. Carrie’s newest book from That Patchwork Place has hit the stands. Carrie is such a talented wordsmith. Every project has a creative name and an entire story to go along with it. The wealth of information this one woman retains in her brain is amazing.  Maybe she can come up with another word for amazing so all the dancers on dancing with the stars will have something else to say.
I would certainly want to be on her team during Trivia night.

Ruby by Bonnie and Camille  is shipping to stores now so I thought I would show you the quilt made from a previous line of their fabrics. This quilt was made by an associate of mine Debbie Outlaw. (remember the chocolate cake in my birthday post?)

 Not to brag but I also have a quilt in the book. (THANK YOU CARRIE!)
And I need to mention that Alicia Keys from Heirloom quilting did a super job quilting mine. Check out her work if you are looking for a machine quilter.
The best part of this is that I am going to give this book away to some who leaves a random comment. You must have a way for me to contact you. This will be short and sweet. I will draw the name by 6:00 am tomorrow morning. (Wednesday) A 24 hour giveaway.! Go for it and thanks for stopping by.

    I ordered this book and recieved it yesterday. Already I love this book,a lot of good information. The patterns are great. BUT I would love to win one to give as a Birthday present and pay it forward. Your pattern in it is my favorite, probably the first one I will make. Thanks

    Your blog is very interesting not ahem… boring!

    It must be so frustrating to know about fun and great things and not be able to share.

    I have the book on my "wish" list. 🙂


  3. Lissa, Thanks so much for a fun, fast chance to win a copy of Carrie's new book. I can't wait to see the all the quilts in it and get started on some of them. How fun is it that one of them is yours, O/..O/..O/..Way To Go Lissa!!! Hugs…

    I have not made any Schnibbles patterns yet and would love to. This would be the incentive to do that. Thank you for the chance to win. Take care and God bless, Cory

    How cool! I have several charm packs and layer cakes I need to find patterns for. This book would be a great one to have for that!

    Thanks for the great review and chance to win it!

    Congrats on having a quilt in the book. I have not seen any of the Schnibbles books/patterns in person, but all the quilts I have seen made with these patterns are very nice.
