Plan "C" and other quilt goodies

The Schnibbles a month is winding to a close. I’ve made 1 every month for the past 11 months, that is a lot of little quilts! The final month you get a choice between the patterns “Short Story” and “Plan C” It so happens I’ve already made “Short Story” awhile ago, long before the monthly quilts were being made. I was waffling on not making another quilt since I’d already made one. Then I thought that wouldn’t be right because everybody else if making one, and I haven’t made the “Plan C” quilt yet anyway. And I love starting new quilts… so there you go.

The fabric I chose is Eva by Basic Grey. I had two pretty charm packs in my stash for awhile, and I started cutting it out last night. Purple, Pink and Green, all very pretty and something I normally wouldn’t choose, but since these Schnibbles are so small, it’s fun to try new things. Let’s see if I can get this done in time.
My sister was here for two weeks. We played hard, and went everywhere, but at night when our kids were sound asleep we sewed quite a bit. Nikki tries to sew, but it’s hard for her with a one year old running around! She is making a braid quilt with a jelly roll she purchased last time she was here (in March). She got all of her braids done last night, yay!
She is using the pattern from this book. I love this book, a lot. Have I made anything from it yet? Nope. Have my friends borrowed my book and made quilts from it? Yes, and lots of them. Oh well, I’ll eventually cut into one of my pretty jelly rolls!
I got really lucky last month with the Schnibbles parade, I won the $50 gift certificate from The Fat Quarter Shop. I was in shock! Here is what I bought with the gift card... ooooh pretty fabric! What to make next...

1. Yum! I love that braided quilt!

2. I totally need to check out that jelly roll quilt. Maybe you'll have time to make one when you're done with all of your schnibbles.

3. You're awesome.

Love this one too. The colors are wonderful. Nice job your sister is doing on hers. Sometimes sharing makes it easier to do.

Those colours are really great. For me there's no doubt that you will be able to finish this quilt in time, lol.
I love the braided quilt your sister is making. I had chosen the same quilt from the same book, now I'm looking for a jelly roll so that I can start.

I'm so excited to see your Eva Plan C finished - I haven't even started my schnibbles this month - eep! Jelly Roll Quilts is one of my favorites. I keep telling myself I'm going to quilt my way through that book at some point.
