George Schnibbles - July's Le Petite

August 1, 2011

Woo-hoo!!! I actually finished July's Le Petite project in time for the parade on Sinta and Sherri's blogs!!  I sewed a few minutes here and there and somehow managed to get it pieced!  I still don't know how I did it!!  July's Le Petite was George Schnibbles by Carrie Nelson for Miss Rosie's Quilt Co.
I used leftover charms squares of Pom Pom de Paris and the green is from Fa La La, both by French General.  The Green is from French General's new Christmas line.  The green is a great mixer to add to a lot of the French General lines.  The background is a Primitive Muslin from Primitive Gatherings.  My new favorite go-to background.  I love how pretty it turned out.  Schnibbles never disappoint!  I think I will change the name of mine to Georgette because it has such a pretty, feminine look.
 I now have a coordinating table topper and table runner.  I used Pom Pom de Paris for a previous Le Petite (I posted about it here)  and made a table runner for my kitchen island. 
My sister brought her kitty Scooter home over the weekend.  Scooter will be living with us for the next year because Kristin starts her Clinicals at the end of the month.  Kristin is in grad school to become a Physician's Assistant.  She will spend her Clinicals traveling all over the state and will not be able to travel with Scooter.  I don't think Scooter minds staying with us.  This kitty loves to quilt!! :-)
 He made himself right at home!  Make sure you stop by Sinta's and Sherri's blogs later and see the parade of all the different versions of George.

  1. Hi Linda! Don't know if you remember me or not but I used to have a blog called Ranch House Haven and then quit blogging for several months. Well, I couldn't stand it anymore and just had to get back to blogging.

    Anyway, I LOVE your Georgette! The colors are some of my favorites!

  20. Love your George Schnibbles and your tablerunner. I can't believe you don't have a cat of your own. All quilters have cats. Looks like this one has made itself right at home.

  23. I LOVE Georgette! Great job. It's amazing how just a little time here and there adds up to something marvelous. Congratulations on making the parade, your Schnibble is wonderful. The green from Fa La La is a good addition to to Pom Pom.

  24. Great job on getting it done, and I agree that Georgette is a better name. Scooter looks like a hoot. I am going to start a Halloween stitchery soon. I am thinking some of the primitive muslin is what I need. I think a trip to Marshall may be in order soon. :-) Miss ya.
