Vintage Schnibbles - Key Lime Butterfly


"Gentle Art" is the name of this PDF Schnibbles pattern from Miss Rosie's Quilt Co; however, I am naming my quilt Key Lime Butterfly for the touches of lime green among the prominent black, white, and grey and for the snippets of butterflies on one of the fabrics. I am joining the monthly Parade of Schnibbles, sponsored by Sinta of Pink Pincushion and Sherri of A Quilting Life.

I enjoyed working with this pattern; it came together with greater ease for me than Hat Trick from last month's parade. I liked this pattern well enough that I plan to make it again! The little objects are supposed to represent spools, as in spools of thread, but my husband called them bowties.

Two sets of charm squares and about a yard and a half for the border, binding, and backing are all that is required. I used a stash I've been collecting (and love!) for about a year instead of charm squares. The quilt top still lacks a binding, and I might add another light border. When complete, it will measure approximately 30" X 30".

  1. Adorable quilt. Your husband is right. The spools do look like little bowties.

  3. Fantastic modern look that my son would thoroughly enjoy! Now that your hubby says they look like bowties I see it...and it got me thinking that my 19 year old who attends ASU enjoys wearing his ASU bowtie now and then. I bought a couple yards of Appalachian State fabric last Fall when he started school year and had not done a thing with it...yet. This may be it! I can just make it larger, right?

    1. What a great idea! I am not yet good at adjusting patterns, but I bet you could make it bigger. Be sure & post about it if you do it!

  5. This is beautiful! I love that you used lime green and that you used the same fabrics for the diagonal spools. I had a difficult time with placement for mine and this would have solved it :-)

    1. Hi Tricia - I've been checking your blog, glad to see you! I like that lime green too. I hadn't intended to use so much of it, but somehow it worked out that way, and I'm OK with it.

  9. I love this color combination. So pretty and very popular at the moment. I'm so excited that you got your bread machine! I have Olive Garden's Pasta e Fagioli in the crockpot and was just thinking about making the Ham and Cheddar rolls with a Parmesan and Pesto filling to go with it. Have fun, and REPORT!
