Here is Your Free Choice Schnibbles Parade

I hope you had an enjoyable weekend. I always enjoy the Memorial weekend. Three days off!!!
We start off with putting out the buntings and other decorating in red, white and blue. I love the family get together and BBQ's. Nothing better than the smell of a Barbeque! And laughter!
I think you are really going to enjoy A Year of Schnibbles parade of quilts for this month! May's Schnibble was a free choice... so everyone got to pick a Schnibble that they had been wanting to do that we hadn't picked before. So we have a big variety to show you and of course over at Sherri's blog, A Quilting Life is another half of the parade that you won't want to miss!

But before we begin, I thought you would like to see what the
 Schnibbles pattern is going to be for this month...
We were thinking that  this pattern reminded us of Summer and what do you do in Summer?
Maybe go to the State Fair!

Finished size: 31" x 31"  Fabric requirements:
50 charm squares for blocks     19 charm squares for outer border
5/8 yard background & inner border    1/3 yard binding
(I actually used a Jelly Roll for mine, I only had a little bit of fabric left over)
So now let's see the parade while you are thinking about what fabrics to use for State Fair!

To start with we have Betsy made out of Cherish by Andee from the Modern Day Diary blog.

She also made a coordingating little topper!

This is the Embroidery Lady's, Gran, Bow Tie

Love the parade, it is fun to see what everybody chose. I like the free choice, so I could use a pattern in my stash :D I finished the State Fair top, and love it, I like how it had a second pinwheel after you put the blocks together, so cute :) http://quiltorstitch.blogspot.com/2010/06/state-fair-quilt-top.html
