Paganini Le Petite

Thankyou for your kind thoughts...DH seems to be improving & we are hoping to keep him well.
This weekend has been spent gardening (my neighbours will be hating my liberal use of manure!)...and some time was found to work on the Paganini Schnibbles from Le Petite with Sherri & Sinta.
It is really sweet & I am loving Bliss...so pretty & fresh...great practice for all those pesky points...should look nice on my dining table. I still need to needleturn the scallop, quilt & bind, but I am happy to achieve the top seeing I only received the pattern ten days ago & it has been a big week!
Do any Aussies know anywhere that we can buy Schnibbles patterns here?
Happy Halloween to those who celebrate it!

I am so happy to hear your husband is doing better.
The quilt top is lovely- I can't believe how fast you got it done, especially with everything else that has consumed your time!
Happy Halloween.

So glad to hear hubby is improving, I hope he does stay really well. I can just imagine the smell coming from your garden...but your plants are going to be loving their feed!!! Your Schnibbles is gorgeous, would look lovely on a table top. I have never purchased any of these patterns, can you buy them online somewhere? I hope you are keeping well as you care for your DH. xo

Love it!! I adore the Bliss fabrics too.
I have bought shnibbles patterns from Etsy before, but have never seen them here in Oz.

Looks good. I may have to investigate these Schnibbles. Glad to hear your husband is doing better.

Hope your husband is well. That's scary to have him fall ill while he is away. Love the Bliss fabrics. Cute quilt.

I love this pattern and it looks lovely on your table. I have quite a few of the older schnibbles - just picked up when I see them at quilt shops. But I don't know of someone who has a big range. I suppose I have around ten. However a few of those ones are doubled up in the book Schnibbles Times Two which is quite cheap from the Book Depository. You might like to try that first. Also I know of at least one seller on ebay who has some so try there as well.

Good to read your husband is improving. I bought a Bliss jelly roll and some yardage - have been looking at designs to use them in. I bought Schnibbles Times Two quite a while ago from the Book Depository (free postage).
