May Day





Happy May Day! And welcome to a Parade of Vintage Schnibbles..."Hat Trick!" First, though...I need to announce that next month's pattern will be "Gentle Art." This is a pattern I've been wanting to make for a long time...and while mine isn't finished yet, Sinta has a beautiful version on her blog. (I'll be sure to share mine when it's finished).




I thought Sarah's "Hat Trick" would be the perfect way to start the day...what a gorgeous quilt in such a gorgeous setting!





Elizabeth's "Hat Trick" has a fun story about the fabrics (and has a super fun fabric for the backing)!




Carol's "Hat Trick" is so "fun" in PB & J!


Jennifer made this lovely "Hat Trick"




Carol's "Hat Trick" (with Buster helping out)




"Hat Trick" by Chris!


Connie's "Hat Trick" is gorgeous!


Deb's beautiful version


Gail's "Hat Trick"



Denise's "Hat Trick"


Izzy's gorgeous spring "Hat Trick"


Jodi's beautiful Fig Tree Hat Trick


Judith's gorgeous "Hat Trick"


"Hat Trick" by Karen M


"Hat Trick" by Karen O





Jackie's "Hat Trick"





Gerri's great quilt





Kim's gorgeous  quilt




Karen C's "Hat Trick"




Dorothy's "Hat Trick"





And I just love Hildy's version!




And Joan made a lovely runner...hmmm I might have to make one of these!



Sue and Wendy are friends who always participate together...cheering each other on. This is Sue's...


And this is Wendy's!





Angela's quilt


Brenda's "Hat Trick"


Carol C's "Hat Trick"





And Messy Karen's great "Hat Trick"





Joanne's quilt...we are ending with another beautiful quilt in another beautiful setting!



Thanks so much to everyone!  I'll be adding a few more quilts to my parade later this evening...but I wanted to at least get these posted.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Also...today was a crazy day, so if I left out any blog links...please let me know, and I'll add them in!

What a beautiful parade! This pattern really lent itself to so many versions. I'm excited about next month--I've had that pattern for a while, too.

Dee said...

I love seeing the parade each time, although it usually leaves me wanting to remake the quilt using another fabric line. However, they're such small quilts and this was such an easy pattern, why not? I think next month's pattern would be great hanging in a sewing room. How adorable! Off to think of fabric choices now...

Carol said...

Love all the quilts. Mine didn't show up in the parade. I emailed to you yesterday.

Oh such inspiration! Every month I see another fabric collection I want to play with! Thanks for the parade.

I've noticed that quilting has a way of turning us into photographers! Making us stop to think about the setting that will make a great compliment background for our quilts. That is a wonderful thing, don't you think? There were some truly beautiful photos in this parade...perfect accents to beautiful quilts, each and every one of them. Well done everybody! Thanks for sharing all the eye candy Sherri, Hugs...

These quilts are so inspiring. I love to see how each person chooses and uses her fabric choices If I get the courage I will join for next month.

Great parade, but that is no surprise! Great to see all the variations! Mine didn't make it to parade either...stuck in traffic somewhere. :-)

I have gone through all the quilts on your blog and on Sinta's. All I have to say is bravo to you both for all this work. I can only imagine how long it must take to get those posts set up, so thank you thank you.

I had fun clicking out to comment on different people's blogs and their Schnibbles. It really is amazing how many different ways this quilt can look!

Love the new one. I think I can slide another quilt in here somewhere. . .

I love this opportunity to see all the quilts together and drink them all in. I count 60 quilts in the parades! That is a whole lot of inspiration!

Satu said...

Wohoo, Great parade also here at your place, Sherri! I'm every time amazed how many different quilts you see, although they are made with the same pattern! And I'm SO EXCITED to do 'Gentle Art'!!!!

Patricia Lessell said...

Love all of them and so wish I would have made mine in time. I can still make it though. Going to buy next month's pattern and have a go at that one. Love the red and black version must admit.

Lesley said...

Gorgeous hat tricks! Thanks so much for hosting another Schnibbles year...

gailss said...

Wow...what a great parade of quilts and how different each one is. Thank you Sherri for doing this and I enjoyed doing mine. I can see where some have spent some time really placing their colors and loved how they came out.
Thanks Sherri

Jodi said...

Great parade, I love seeing all the different color combinations and design ideas. I plan on doing this months Vintage Schnibble as well and already downloaded the pattern.

Hildy said...

I love all the quilts, best parade ever! And can't wait to get my Gentle Arts start this evening!
Thank you so much Sherri, Sinta and Carrie:-)
