Presenting........

Winter White!

The first Schnibbles pattern for the Year of Schnibbles.

I was a little confused about when we were supposed to show this quilt, so I hope that I did not miss the deadline. The problems with getting a hold of the fabric set me back a bit, but here it is.

I also was trying to do a little more free motion quilting following along with Mary Mashuta's Foolproof Machine Quilting.

Her method uses the walking foot, which I think give a little more control.

Looking forward to seeing the other Winter White quilts.

Happy Schnibbling :-)

** I am joining Park City Girl and her Fall Quilt Festival. Please be sure to stop by and visit all the other beautiful quilts that will be displayed this weekend!

Peaceful Piecer said...

Love the quilt! I may look for the book...I am very insecure in machine quilting anything but straight lines.

Cindy said...

Too pretty. Is the material Glace from Moda?

Yes, I'd love to hear about quilting using the walking foot.

The last quilt I did I used my BSR foot to do some tight stippling. I also used the "Sewslip" that worked wonderfully.

Crispy said...

Oh Jocelyn your snibblet quilt is Gorgeous!! The sneak peeks just weren't doing it justice :o)

Amy said...

It's very pretty! I love the color tones. Is it a wall hanging? I don't know anything about Schnibbles...do you do a certain pattern each month? If so, I look forward to seeing the next installment!

Beautiful quilt, love the fabrics you used. I also would love to hear more about the free motion quilting with a walking foot.

ritad said...

Love your quilt...I too would like to know more about free motion quilting with the walking foot...Sounds like something that might work for me, on the other hand regular free motion quilting looks like a train wreck after I'm finished...

Dee said...

Thanks for sharing and linking up!

ivoryspring said...

Jocelyn,

This is such a sweet sweet quilt! I am in love with it. What are you going to do with it? Are you keeping it, or giving it away as a gift?

KimQuiltz said...

I LOVE Mary Mashuta, LOVE the browns with light blue and red (I'm working on resisting!!) I haven't tried that M.M. pattern yet, though I had better hurry up because I'm teaching a class this month...

Nanci said...

I love this! It is so very cute. I'm going to have a look at her tutorial. I am also looking at 365 days of free motion quilting.
I went for it and now that it's washed the quilt looks much better....I think.
But fun fun fun!

quiltmom said...

Very pretty quilt- I had not heard of Mary Mashuta quilting techniques so I will have to check her out. I Know I have seen her name before when looking at quilt books.
Some other machine quilting techniques you may want to keep an eye out for are Patsy Thompson designs and a book called the " Art of McTavishing" by Karen McTavish.
Thanks for sharing your lovely Schnibble's quilt. Enjoy the festival.
Regards,
Anna

QuiltSue said...

Beautiful quilt in beautiful fabrics.

paula, the quilter said...

Lovely quilt! I combine Mary Mashuta's technique with free motion for some wonderful results. I will drop the feed dogs and change out the foot then FM away. Then I'll change to the walking foot, put up the feed dogs and do some straight line quilting.

Heather said...
