Schnibbles 'n Bits..........

I got enough fabric cut and geese made for my Winter White Schnibbles project that I can play around and try to come up with the perfect combination.  One of the things about this pattern that appeals to me is Miss Rosie's use of contrast.  I hope I can be as happy with my combinations since I'm using different fabric.  

I'm using Gobble Gobble, by Sandy Gervais for Moda.

First attempt,  dark small squares with orange inner  geese, multi-colored outer geese, light corner squares.  Pretty Good but I think I can do better. (1)


A whole different direction, light small squares with orange inner  geese , multi-colored outer geese, dark small corner squares.....I'm not liking the corner squares, is it me not getting the right combination, it just looks too busy, nothing like the pattern picture. (2)


How about this combination, dark small squares with beige inner geese, multi colored outer geese in order, light large squares.....I substituted large squares for the 4 multi squares.  I like this better.  Is it because my fabric print is large? (3)



Maybe this, light small squares with orange inner geese, multi colored outer geese in same order, dark large squares.....(4)



Here they are on my design wall....I think the light has a better over all look but I favor the dark....ugh



Another try, light small squares with multi-colored  inner geese in  random order, beige outer geese, dark large squares.  I'm really liking the beige outer geese. (5)




One last attempt, light small squares with orange inner geese, beige outer geese, dark large squares.....(6)




No really, this is my last attempt, light small squares with multi-colored inner geese in  corresponding columns, beige outer geese, dark large squares.....(7)


I think I may be over thinking this....I just can't get my fabric to pop like the picture on the pattern...I'm not sure what I'll do.

Are you wondering what Cooper was up to while I was playing with my Gobble Gobble.....

He was at the beauty shop....he came home wearing a tie.....and looking like a poodle.

  1. I like the third one shown. Keep it up. By the time you're done, you'll have six of these and can call your Christmas Shopping DONE.

  2. You are amazing! I love what you did with Gobble Gobble. You came up with so many combinations it blows my mind. That is the fabric I am planning to use also. You have given me so many ideas.

  3. I like #1 & #3, the darker ones have too much going on.

  4. I ruined my Gobble Gobble layer cake! My idea for the color placement was horrendous. It all ended up in the waste basket! I am sick about it and have to start all over. I should have just copied you!
