It was really tough to make a decision about which quilt I should show off for the festival! In the end I decided to pick the most difficult of the "Year of Schnibbles" quilts I made this past year that Sherri and Sinta had going on. I really enjoyed the challenge of making a little Schnibbles quilt (Miss Rosie's Quilt Company--Carrie rocks!) each month and though the quilts were small these quilts taught me alot. This particular quilt is called "Picnic"and I can't tell you how many hours went in to squaring up these babies! I recall the feeling of satisfaction I had when it was all together and things lined up as they should. I made a note to never make another of this pattern (most of them I would do again in a minute) do to all of the squaring up. Since then I have learned other options for half square triangles and it wouldn't be as much squaring, but still!
Anyway, it represents an entire year of getting to know some online quilting friends. I won some prizes, I added several blogs to my blog roll, and I got to see the same fun pattern in lots of fabric lines or colorways. I also shared the love and gave away several of these tabletopper size quilts. All of these things made this quilt my favorite of the year! I am happy to paricipate in the Blogger Quilt Festival again--you should too!
P.S. I blogged about each Schnibble as I made them if you want to go back and check them all out!
