Meet the Author

Just in case you don't already know this about Miss Rosie's Quilt Company, Rosie is Carrie Nelson's golden retriever. Carrie gives her top billing because she says she's prettier and nicer. At 10 years old, Rosie is a little bit less dignified than she'd like you to believe. A quilt isn't really a quilt until she's rolled around and slept on it. She still inspects every bag, box, and package that comes into the house, especially those boxes of fabric from Moda, since they're addressed to her anyway.

While Rosie isn't much of a quilter, she's an excellent quilting teacher. Her "golden rules" are simple: Play every day and enjoy it to the fullest. Jump into everything with unabashed enthusiasm and a passion for what you're doing. Don't worry about what anybody else thinks; as long as you're happy and having fun, that truly is the only thing that matters. And no matter what, always be open to new adventures, new ideas, and new challenges.

Pretty and smart! No wonder it's her name on the company logo.

    This is a great book!

    I picked up this book because of the title. (What the heck is a schnibble?) I am so glad that I did!

    I began reading the introduction to Carrie Nelson's book, "Schnibbles Times Two; Quilts from 5" or 10" Squares" in an attempt to discover what a schnibble was. I ended up reading not only the introduction but all of the How To section even before I looked at the photos of the quilts. (As an experienced quilter I generally glance at the How To information to look for any new or unique techniques, but I never read it through completely, let alone before I look at the quilt photos.) Carrie Nelson has a wonderful writing voice. She is informative and funny. It was fun to read as an experienced quilter, and for a beginning quilter her writing style makes the information easy to understand and not in the least scary.

    The basic premise of the quilts in this book is using pre-cut fabric packs to create beautiful quilts in two different sizes, a lap top version and a smaller version. Unlike many quilt patterns where you are given the directions for a quilt and then the cutting requirements for that quilt in a variety of sizes, Ms. Nelson has provided complete cutting, piecing and finishing directions for each quilt at each size. For a beginning quilter that could make all the difference between being successful and being extremely frustrated.

    I have never been a big fan of charm packs, but as a scrap quilter these quilts are wonderful. I love the "X-Rated" cover quilt, "Little Red" and "McGuffey", as well as the stories that go along with them. For those rare times I do use charm packs I also appreciated that included in the How To section of the book was information on dealing with the pinked edges of the fabric in the pack.

    This is a wonderful book, and well worth the cost. Weather you are using charm packs or gathering your own fabric, these quilts are captivating and fun!

    Layer Cake, Jelly Rolls, Charm Packets or Scraps!!!

    As a member of a guild that makes quilts for charity, I am always looking for ways to use up the scraps we have. SCHNIBBLES TIMES TWO helps to fit that search. While it is not written as a scrap fabric book, the patterns certainly can be used that way.

    The first 12 pages contain the usual quilting basics on cutting and the like. But as I read the patterns, of which there are a dozen, I kept seeing lots of different fabrics making up each quilt. I thought what a great idea to use up our scraps - choose one new fabric and add all the other fabrics in the scraps we have!

    Each pattern has a materials and cutting list. The block assembly instructions, along with assembly instructions for the quilt itself and how to finish it are well written. There are enough graphics to help you through so you can be sure you are putting the fabric together in the correct way.

    Strips, blocks, bow ties, ½ square triangles, flying geese and squares make up the blocks that create these wonderful quilts. The book suggests Layer Cake and Charm Packet blocks of fabric but I know our guild will make several if not all of them from the scraps and the knowledge of the author.
