Hello everyone!  WOW what beauties we have in store for you this month!  I REALLY loved the way all the quilts turned out and the participation!!!  Everyone did a super job!!

And if your visiting from Roses of Inspiration enjoy the Parade and leave some love for these talented ladies!!!

Onto the Parade!!!  Next Months challenge to follow:

First up we have Mickey....I just love the soft colors!!  One thing you will notice and I thought, very cool was Mickey Kept the flower squares whole!!  What a great idea when you have that pretty fabric you don't want to cut up or just love the design!!!  I think I need to make a few of them this way!!!

Next Up we have Susan, I love the Americana feel to this and if you look in the corner, that Paisley....LOVE IT!!!


Sandy pulled out the Red White and Blue for this one!  I love the placement of the squares along with the patriotic look...super cute!

Next up we have Sue a high school friend of mine from many moons!! Hers is a flimsy and I love love love the fabric!!!  This turned out super cute and this is Sues first time with us!  Welcome Sue!


Laurie , who has been with us I believe from the beginning made hers with a lovely flower print that is screaming SPRING!!!  I think we are all getting a little warm weather fever!!!  I really like the quilting on this , very nice Laurie!


Now Robins is just adorable!  She cut down the amount of blocks and made hers square!  I love it!!  I definitely need to make a small one like this....very cute and love that fabric!


And lastly is mine.  I decided to use civil war replica prints.  I love these colors, it suits my home.  I did add two borders to make it a little bit bigger to fit my eat in kitchen table.  I also quilted it using a cross hatch pattern.


And now for next month....let me tell you it was hard to choose!!!!  But here is next months challenge and I chose it because I have spring fever real bad and these colors screamed sherbert ice cream to me! LOL  makes sense right?  Anyway please turn to page 232
