Our Year of Schibbles -Easter Parade!



When I was little I was referred to as a Tag Along. It wasn't then, and still isn't something you want to be. But being a younger sister... that was my place.
But now let me introduce you to a Tagalong that is
a wonderful thing:


Tagalong... Our April Schnibbles pattern choice...




And just so you can start planning and figuring out what you need...
here are the materials list for tagalong:
84 charm squares
* 31 need to be matching pairs
1 fat quarter of inner border

And now....
Here is our Year of schnibbles Parade for April!
I am thinking Easter eggs here... do you see any influences? This Roundabout was made by Trish at TLC Stitches. How fun is that!


This Roundabout was made by Trish. Her blog is Quilt Tails and Cat Tails. I am not sure which line of fabrics this is but it's so nice with the red and green theme!

This would be a perfect quilt for Breast Cancer Awareness. However it is going to a friends new baby... #6 and I'm sure it will be loved as much as all the love that was put into it!
pretty in pink... this Roundabout was made by An Encourager.
Edit: Here is our first Schnibbles that got turned in but somehow got missed in the parade. So very sorry! Here is Angela's Roundabout... from Country Scrap Quilts blog. This is going to look great hanging up during the summer!

Here is Roundabout made by Lisa B at Candlelite Quilter blog.


This is Suzie's Roundabout made with a cool palatte! Beautiful.


Stina is calling her Roundabout... Turnabout. She used her beautiful Porcelain fabrics. She added sashing to the blocks and made the whole quilt larger/lap size.

Simone made her Roundabout with such cheerful fabrics... including polka dots! Love 'em!


Sigrid made her Roundabout for her husband.


Shelley at Red Quilts Blog
Another great Red White & Blue version!


and here is Roundabout by Sashi from Sashi's blog.


This is Sandy's Roundabout from Sandy's Show & Tell. She made not one but two... so you have to hop over to her blog to see the other one!


This Roundabout was made by Sandy F.
I think Sandy went for a not quilt so scrappy look. It has a nice flow to it.

Another wonderful version of Roundabout by Sandi at Crazy 'bout Quilts


Done by Robin at RSISANDLANDCRAFTS


Regena at Quilt and Quilt Things
Both of the quilts above have a big color impact... they look stunning and festive!


This sweet Roundabout was made by Polly from Aunt Polly's Porch.


The group was Aviary. She has more pictures on her blog... I'm not sure you can see how really cute it is from this picture.



Paulette's Roundabout done in Aster Manor, no blog, sorry. I love Astor Manor and it looks great in Roundabout here too!



I love the way this quilt looks so calm. It was made by Mary... Needled Mom.



Here is Roundabout made by the infamous Mary over at the blog


I believe this Roundabout was made from American Primer. It was made by Marianne at the blog: D is for Dovey. Red, white and blue is always a favorite of mine!

You can see more of the parade over at A Quilting Life.

There are a lot more to see!!!
Sherri and I want to thank everyone for participating once again and making A Year of Schnibbles so much fun! Everyone's Roundabouts turned out fantastic. It makes me love this pattern even more... it also makes me want to copy some of yours! Great job!!!

I just love seeing the parade. It is so interesting to see a pattern come to life in so many different fabric choices. The one from TLC is really fascinating. LOVE the rainbow colors, and am so impressed that she could conceive of such a lay out. It looks great!
