Vintage Schnibbles - Make Mine Ruby


Thanks to a mention of it on Jennifer's blog Seams Crazy, I am joining my first Another Year of Schnibbles (AYOS), a quilt-along co-hosted by blog authors Sinta Renee and Amy Smart. Read about it on their blogs, Pink Pincushion and A Quilting Life.

The pattern for this month's Schnibble quilt is Hat Trick, which I purchased from Miss Rosie's Quilt Co and downloaded a few minutes later - I love downloadable patterns!


Ruby by Moda, which I described in this post, was my fabric of choice.


The pattern suggested using two charm packs and additional fabric, but since I only had one charm pack, I decided to go with the option of Amy Butler's Lark (Souvenir in Persimmon) for the center square and for the binding as well. I featured a green fabric with a light yellow dot (can't remember the name of it!) for the other solids and also for the inner border.


I will hang the little quilt in my sewing room, which doubles as a guest bedroom. On the bed are two of my Mom's old pillowcases. I pulled one of the pillows off the bed to show how beautifully the Ruby fabric blends.


I had fun with this one and definitely want to join in for next month!

    1. Thank you! I actually am planning to buy some more Ruby fabric - I'd love to make a bed runner.

  3. I LOVE Ruby and I have a layer cake that I'm about to cut into to make a table runner. Your quilt came out beautiful and your quilting is so good. I'm slowly gaining confidence in all the steps involved with quilting but I'm enjoying learning.

  4. You know when I decided to jump in with this, I had no idea I would have so much fun going around to other people's blogs and seeing their Schnibbles! Certainly I love how the Ruby fabric matches your mother's pillowcases--I love it when we can integrate things we love with things that are new. Your little quilt turned out beautifully!

  6. Your Hat Trick turned out great! Love the unique touches you added. I love Ruby fabrics and have to keep myself from using it in every project I start. I don't have much left, so I am protecting it for awhile longer. I can't wait to see what you do with the next AYOS quilt. I didn't do anything "special" with mine, but I'm going to change that up with this next one.
