My Favorite Schnibble

To cap off Another Year of Schnibbles 2012, Sinta and Sherri  asked that we post our favorite Schnibble.  It's really hard to pick a favorite, but I really, really love the color scheme in my July 2012 Schnibble - Bennington...
Those blues and browns together gets me everytimn!  And, I really love the argyle print I used for the skinny border and the back...
It is still being quilted....
Yes, that is hand quilting going on there, folks!!

Speaking of Another Year of Schnibbles....I won one of designer Carrie Nelson's prizes for my December's Schnibble - Morsel!

I had heard Carrie out-does herself with the generosity of her prizes.  People are right!  This is the box that came in the mail...

Gotta love that label!
What was in the box blew me away...

As if this gorgeous fat quarter bundle of Fig Tree's Tapestry line wasn't enough, Carrie packed in all of these other goodies...
In the  first and second photos is a cute little fabric envelope and its contents - three "feed sack" tea towels - and the long photo on the right is a 2013 calendar tea towel - these are from Moda Home (I didn't even know there was a Moda Home!), then back to the left, we have a delicious box of chocolate peppermint cookies from Trader Joe's (which are staying in my sewing room - no, I'm not sharing with the rest of the hosue!), the latest edition of 100 Blocks Magazine, a cute little pincushion in Carrie's Full House pattern done in Countdown to Christmas fabric that matches my AYOS for January which was a Full House pillow (did Carrie make this for me on purpose?  I don't know for sure, but I wouldn't put it past her!), and a cute little tin of glass head pins.  Above the pins in the photo is a postcard from Carrie that got me choked up a little (that girl's got beautiful handwriting by the way).   I was as excited opening that box as I was on Christmas morning.  Hubby and I must have ooh'd and aah'd over it for half an hour!  And I drug it around with me everywhere for about a week showing it off to people (no one can ever accuse me of being a quilt geek, now can they - LOL!)

Thanks again, Sherri, Sinta and Carrie for Another (Great!) Year of Schibbles!
