Niblets

Back in 2001? or 2002? When I first discovered the quilt community on the net and being a fairly new quilter, I joined several swap groups to learn about quilting as much as possible. It was a great way to learn for me because each swap had its own guideline to follow (or else your own blocks will be return to you-Yikes!), a chance to learn different methods of piecing, and forced me out of my comfort zone to try harder blocks.

With so many of those little 3inches 9-patch blocks in the mystery quilt, they reminded me of the group called Niblets. What are Niblets? you asked. Niblets are those 3inches 9-patch blocks. I exchanged with the group for about a year.... but haven't done anything with these Niblets. There they sat in my box and forgotten with name tags still attached.


I think I need to do something with them... my mind is blank... any suggestions?

HMMM... are there any "Niblers" out there? If you were or are still one, please let me know. I love to hear from you, and what have you done with your Niblets?

I wish I could come and play with your nine patch blocks! There are so many lovely settings. But have a look at Bonnie's Sister's Choice quilt: http://www.quiltville.com/sisterschoice.shtml

I'm not a Nibbler, but I went to a quilt show where there had been a bunch of them.

Here's the link:
