Picnic Parade

What a parade we have today...so many fun versions of "Picnic" by Carrie Nelson of Miss Rosie's Quilt Company to share! First...what I've been working on. A few pincushions...one in Swanky...


and several in Mill House Inn. But these aren't just any ordinary pincushions--have you guessed--we know this is a busy month...and so...the December Schnibble is Tuffets!!! We'll have a regular Schnibbles pattern for January...but figured everyone would have fun with this pattern for December. Make one or a few...in one line or out of several different lines...we can't wait to see what you do with this pattern. Oh, and Rachel's Friendship bags just happen to be the perfect size for a gift bag for a Tuffet...I've been making bags for each pincushion. (You don't have to make a matching Friendship bag for the January parade...it's just an idea if you're giving your Tuffet as a gift)! And now, on with the parade! Be sure to head over to Sinta's blog to see the rest of the quilts as well!


This gorgeous picnic comes from KJ Quilts!

And this Picnic is from Trish!
This picnic was made by Edith of the Little Red Hen blog.



This is a terrific Picnic done in fun bright fabrics by Lisa.

This Picnic was made with wonderful vintage fabrics by Marianne.

I love this Picnic done in reproduction fabrics by Sandy M.

Love, love this fall version by Mary.

And I love this Picnic by Sandy F. that was done with Portabello Market along with some Collections for a Cause Tradition mixed in!

Paulette (no blog) made this great version in Moda's Beach House!

This wonderful picnic was stitched by Robin...love the beautiful, bright colors!

This quilt comes to us from Lisa who used the Recess line by American Jane for Moda.


I love prairie points...Trisha had a terrific idea to add these!


And here is a photo of the whole quilt by Trisha.


This quilt is by Simone. She used the line "Have a Sheri Berry Holiday" by Sheri Berry designs.


Simone did some fussy cutting to use the bells for the corners, and the words to "Jingle Bells" and "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas" can be found on the inner borders.

This quilt is Regena's. She used the line "Wash Tub Bears" by Karen Snyder.

This great version of Picnic is by Pam (no blog).


This wonderful red and white version of Picnic comes from Sandie.

This quilt is Rita's (no blog). She used The Morris Workshop line by Moda. Aren't they all wonderful?! This is so much fun each month. Well, thanks for coming to the parade...as usual, we'll be back tomorrow with the winners. Have fun making some "Tuffets!"

What a wonderful parade...I LOVE the Tuffets...I was just thinking this morning that I wanted to make some of those for gifts. Perfect timing!

Nicole said...

Oh my, I have so much catching up to do! These quilts are each one cuter than the next. I got sidetracked this month and my Picnic quilt never got off the ground. I vow to get back on track in January!

Cara said...

Thanks again for the great parade. You and Sinta do such an awesome job.
You must have been reading the comments on my giveaway because everyone says they need another pincushion! I can't wait to get the new tuffets pattern.

Stephanie said...

Darling tuffets!!! Love the different versions of Picnic Schnibbles.

Everyone loves a parade, especially a Schnibbles parade.

Great job everyone!

Rita said...

What a fantastic parade! It's so much fun seeing the same quilt finished so many ways. It truly is inspiring.

Marianne said...

So many different interpretations of the same pattern. Such fun to see!!!

Cheryl said...

Month three and still no finished Snibble from me :-(!!!! I am going to get one done sometime, promise. Love seeing everyones. They are beautfiul!!!

Busy Little Quilter said...

These are beautiful!

I love the idea of the tuffets in Rachel's Friendship Bag pattern. It's perfect for presents for my quilting friends.

I feel bad, too. I've been so out of touch with all of you and blogging as a whole. I have had lots of company since the first part of October. My dad just left yesterday. It's really hard to sew and blog while company is here. Hopefully I will be able to participate more in the new year.

rachel griffith said...

yayyy that tuffets fit perfectly in my friendship bags!!!
your bags look awesome btw.

Darlene said...

Wonderful parade of Schnibbles quilts!

I love your idea of putting Tuffets in the sweet bags. How do I get on your list? LOL

*karendianne. said...

What a treat! I enjoyed viewing all of them but I have to admit the prairie points really caught my eye. I haven't done those yet and I contemplate that from time to time. A wonderful visit here - as always! Warmly, *karendianne. www.leehaven.com

Your pincushions and friendship bags are adorable. Love the fabrics in that collection!

Thimbleanna said...

Wow! How fun to see all the different versions of Picnic -- what a difference a fabric makes!

Cindy said...

Who doesn't love a parade? Especially a parade of Picnics the beginning the month of December?

Such beautiful Schnibbles!! I could never pick a favorite because they're all so lovely.

As I told Sinta, I'm especially excited about December's Schnibbles pattern. I bought this particular pattern a LONG time ago at the local quilt shop and have yet to make it so now I have great incentive to make one, two OR three. And I absolutely love the little bags you have made to match your Tuffets. I definitely plan on doing the same thing. Thank you for such a wonderful idea.

Sewing hugs and blessings...always.

I love watching your Schnibble club in action. Oh my goodness what beautiful works of art! I feel like a kid, with my nose pressed to the glass looking inside a candy shop.
