pick the fabric

As you read in my last post, it is time for the next schnibbles project.  I am a Carrie Nelson groupie if there ever was one. I already own all of her schnibbles patterns. In fact, I buy 2 of every charm pack in anticipation of what Carrie may create with any given collection. Come on, confess, I am not the only one that does this.

I keep the charm packs all nicely lined up with the pattern neatly inserted through the charm packs band. The stack in the background are charm packs that have not yet been assigned to a pattern. I do have a few patterns that I missed out on getting the featured charm packs. those are the patterns in the back corner of the picture below.

SO this month it is Summer Day and this just so happens to be one of the patterns that I didn’t  have the strawberry fields charm packs. There could also be a good possibility that I had them but used them for something else.

 Here is where I need your help. I am good under a deadline but not so good making up mind when I have too many choices. Vote on which collection I should use, Blueberry Crumb Cake by Blackbird Designs, Collections for a Cause- Friendship by Howard Marcus or Etchings by 3 sisters. Let me know your choice.  Democrats, Liberals, Tea Party’s and Republicans can all vote with no fear of crossing party lines!


  1. Well, I know I'll be the odd man…er…woman out, but I think it should be a scrappy combination of all three. I love quilts made with a single collection, I'm making one right now for my 13 year old grand daughter with Bonnie and Camilles Ruby. BUT, I am a big fan of scrappy and I think it would be fun to mix it up!!! Hugs…

    Initially I thought Etchings, but the small scale prints of Friendship will work well for the small flying geese.

    I love stacked patterns and charm packs. Is that a dish rack?

  3. Heartsdesire says:

    My vote is for Friendship. It looks like it would be fun to use this collection for your Schnibbles pattern. I like Blueberry Crumb Cake, but I think it might be to pale for this pattern.

    I love Three Sister's and thier Etchings is gorgeous but…I own me some of that Friendship line and it is truely yummy! I would have to go with that one.

  5. Kathie says:

    Oh my there is no decision to make use the friendship line. It's awesome! Ok I am a carrie groupie too someday I hope to make all the schnibbles too. Love how you store them what a great idea Kathie

  6. Abby says:

    I love Etchings and it would be so fun to see that quilt done in a deeper tone than what is on the pattern. I'm also curious – who are the 3 Sisters that design this? They are never in moda blog hops, don't have a blog etc. Is the 3 Sisters line designed by sisters,1 person? I've been dying to know.

  7. Becky says:

    I'd like to see this pattern in Etchings. It will be fun to see which one you pick. And yes, I buy 2 charms packs of the lines I like with the plan to use them for a Schnibble.

  8. Carol says:

    I choose etchings for a springlike soft romantic quilt. I haven't decided which charms I'm going to use yet, but I don't have charm packs of etchings or blueberry crumb cake.
