November...



Happy November! And Happy Schnibbles Day! Today we have two wonderful parades to share! First , though, I'd like to share the project for next month's parade. With the holidays just around the corner, Sinta and I thought something small might be in order, so we decided to use Carrie's  Little Bites pattern "Drop" this month. The pattern is really a lot of fun! I cut it out yesterday morning and sewed it up while running to the door to pass out candy last night!



I used Kate Spain's new line, Honey Honey, and there is supposed to be an outer border, but I don't have any larger pieces of the line yet. So I'll be adding a border later! This pattern has several options, and to tell you the truth, I was just going to make a pincushion since I got such a late start, but the blocks were so fun to make I decided to go with a 20" x 20" version...it will be perfect as a table topper or mini quilt for the wall. I know you'll have fun with this patern!




And now for this month's parade...there were two options...Bounce or Hubble, and we have several of each to share today!  Beatrice made this gorgeous fall version of Bounce...love it!



Denise made this beautiful version of Hubble...it's just gorgeous!



Jan also made a fun Bounce quilt!



Carol  of Brown Quilts made this fun version!




Thelma made this gorgeous Hubble...see her post today for something interesting about the different Hubble versions you might have noticed!



Carol made this lovely version of Hubble!


Cheryl also made Hubble...so beautiful in these fabrics!


And Darlene made this gorgeous Bounce!


Gerri used gorgeous fall colors for her Bounce quilt.




Edith made this gorgeous Hubble from her scrap bin! She commented, as did several others, that she enjoyed making a larger quilt this month!



Gretchen made this gorgeous Hubble using a plum background!


Hildy made a version of Bounce and added in some smaller stars!


Izzy made this gorgeous Hubble...love it!



And Kim made this beautiful Bounce in blues!


Next up is Joanne...who not only made this fun Bounce (love the grey background)...


but also made Hubble with these gorgeous fabrics...including a hot pink background...so impressed Joanne!




Brenda finishes up my parade with a Double Chocolat' Hubble...perfect for fall! Make sure you visit Sinta's blog to see the rest of these amazing quilts!

Thanks so much for stopping by! I'll be back soon with more Market posts! Have a wonderful first day of November!

Beautiful quilts from everyone again! And my hat's off to those who made Bounce in just a month. Impressive! I love the little quilt for November.

JoAnne said...

Thanks for doing this parade every month! It is one of my highlights! The quilts are all so beautiful. I always want to make new versions after getting so inspired. I love your quilt for next month, too. Kate Spain has awesome fabric. I saw your picture with her on your earlier post--I'm so jealous. I always say I spend my money on Kate Spain instead of Kate Spade!

I do love a parade! Thanks so much for all you do every month! Great quilts!

What an amazing parade! Thank you again Sherri!

Sinta Renee said...

Wonderful parade of quilts... there were so many little options in both patterns...it's so fun to see the variety! They are all just beautiful.
(I got Kay's and Deb's)

Lesley said...

Fantastic parade! Hats off to those who completed the challenge this month! The next quilt is lovely...may try to get this one done in time!

Ramona said...

OOH that new Kate Spain fabric is different from her last few lines but still gorgeous. I love your saying JoAnne - Spain gets my vote too. Great job to all the parade participants.

Karen O said...

Great job everyone! I didn't quite make it with my Hubble - great to see all the different quilts.

Izzy said...

Oh wow - what an amazing parade once again! Such inspiration. I agree with JoAnne - on the 1st of every month, this parade is the highlight of my day!

Cindy said...

Very inspiring quilts and colors!

Darlene said...

Beautiful parade of quilts.

Thanks for another fun parade! And your version of "Drop" is fabulous.

AllyJo said...

Love, love, love them all. Such creative use of fabrics. And I love Carrie's pattern at the top of the post. Love the Honey, honey.

Michele said...

Wow! Another wonderful parade :-) The next project looks like so much fun! It's beautiful Sherri! Thanks to Sinta, Sherri, and Carrie for another great parade :-)

Bev said...

Shari, just passing through on a blog hop and say your "Drop" top-a piano keyboard border from the scraps would be neat and you wouldn't have to wait for more fabric! Just an idea that popped through my head as I was reading your blog!

Thanks for the pictures. I'm like the Bounce quilt a lot!
