May Day QAL Parade!!!

Happy May Day everyone and Welcome to the May Quilt Along Parade!!!

We had some really love quilts to share today.  I asked Mickey to pick from a couple of selections in the book and this one, Sugarplum Stars was her choice! And I loved it!!!!! She already had all her purple flavored fabrics sitting and waiting for this quilt!  And so Mickey we THANK YOU for such a great selection!!  And we will kick off the parade by showing Mickeys quilt first!  Here we go......

Mickey displayed hers in her office, what a great idea to dress up an office and be able to daydream about fabrics...hehe  Great job Mickey....it is lovely, check out the center of the stars....delicate birds!

Kathleen used such beautiful Bright colors...I love this combo, it would really look great in a girls room!  check out her blog Welcome to my World

Robin did a beautiful version using red, white and blue colors....so very pretty!


Susan used colors that are really soothing....I really like the brown/raspberry combo...nice job!


Sandy used some Minnick and Simpson fabric Miss Scarlet, Don't you just love the colors!  Look at that quilting too! Pretty!


And next up we have Kay who chose to make hers square....really nice choice of fabrics too!  Love the way she quilted it too!


And last up is mine.  I decided to use scraps.  I wanted to see if I could do it....not leave home and buy fabric because if you saw how much fabric I owned you would be shocked! LOL  so I made it all with fabric I have had since 1999!!!  Here it is....in all its Christmas Fabric glory!!


And now I know your just so excited to know what we are doing next month!! Wait no longer....oh wait!!!  Before I tell you...Please please stay tuned come on back in a few days...possibly a week....I will be having an INTERVIEW with Author Courtney Walsh right here on my Blog.....her books are awesome...I have read them all.....be  sure to sign up on the right of this blog to receive an email when I update my blog!!!!  Okay so now to see what we are doing next month!!!! Here you go, turn to page........264  to Decoy!!!!  You'll love making Carrie Nelsons quilt....so much fun!


Thank you so much for attending the parade!  Be sure to leave some love for these ladies!!!  I love all their work....everyone did a wonder job on their quilt!!!!  See you all in a few!!!!

    1. It is always great when we can use up what we have. I am going to challenge myself as well to use up what I have on hand. Maybe one day I will reveal my "stash"....It actually could be a mini store! LOL
