Sunday is for . . . Schnibbles!

This is only the second Schnibbles I've completed in time for the monthly Scnibbles Parade this year.

The pattern is named "Doc," because -- you should never play cards with a man named "Doc!"  In case you don't recognize the block pattern, it's an oldie named "Card Trick."

I foolishly threw out the wrappers for my charm pack, so I don't remember what fabric it is.  But I think it's kitcheny and cheerful!  Can't wait for next week to see all the "Doc" quilts on Pink Pincushion's Schnibbles Parade.  Note:  Oooh, I found it!  The fabric is Sweet Pickins by Darlene Zimmerman for Robert Kaufman.  Why didn't I think of Darlene Zimmerman, I have virtually every fabric she has ever designed!?

When my boys were little, every Memorial Day we had the Annual Memorial Day Shorts-Making Orgy.  I made them a half-dozen or so pair of shorts (each) from fabric each had chosen.  Since they're "all grown up" and wouldn't be caught dead in shorts made of colorful juvenile print fabric, I plan to make some summer tops for me tomorrow.

I'll be back tomorrow night to show off the fruits of my labor!

From the desk of your


  1. Aaw - go on - make them a pair each - just for old times sake - they could use them as pyjama pants - and a coordinating Tshirt with some applique to match?? - just lovely!! Enjoy your holiday whatever you decide on.

  2. I love the old card trick pattern. Love that charm pack!

  3. What a fun story! Your Schnibbles quilt looks so fun and summery! Very cute!

  4. Great summery fabrics on your lovely Doc quilt :-)

  5. Oh Marti I love your "nameless" fabric choices; the gingham, the dots and the little white flowers...a winning combination! I can just picture how cheery it will look on a summer table setting. See you at the next parade!
