May Day Summer Day Parade


Happy May Day...and welcome to our amazing Summer Day parade...we had lots of entries this month...it might be one of our biggest parades ever! Several of our entries came from first-timers...so that is always fun, too! Be sure to stop by Sinta's blog to see the other half of the quilts!

Before we start the parade...you might have recognized the Schnibble Doc is starting us out...this will be our project for May. Carrie is now selling pdf versions of her Schnibbles patterns which will make it so much easier for our parade participants who have had a hard time finding the patterns). Happy Schnibbling...and now on with the parade!



Andee is leading our parade today with her beautiful Summer Day!


Marica used her Japanese fabrics to make her flying geese...beautiful!


Carmen used the Mary Englebreit Recipe for Friendship line to make her fun version!


Carol C (no blog) used the collection Fabulous Fall to make her quilt.


Carol made a jumbo sized version...she's calling it her Schnibbles x 2 version!
