I am so sorry that the parade is late today... but it does set the tone for the month.
All things in August should be done in a lazy kind of way.
It's just too darn hot to do it any other way.
It seems like I haven't gotten much accomplished during July and I have to be honest...
I sat down to the sewing machine on Saturday and pieced the rows of
the August Le Petite project.
Sunday morning I was able to put the rows together and
slap on the border!
So I am telling you that although this next project looks a little harder than George was
it is still a gorgeous quilt that goes together easie peasie!
And if you haven't already learned this from
making Schnibbles... don't think, just do what Carrie says and all will be well.
Seriously. I know this project, Honeycomb" is 60 degree angles...
but just get past that. Our Ms. Carrie of Miss Rosie's Quilt Co. has it all spelled out for you and
even will hold your hand throughout the pattern.
(Well, at least it feels like she does:)
The pattern cover shows Central Park fabric by Kate Spain but
I had a little stash of Terrain by Kate, soon to be released, and was able to
put it to good use here.
Here is what you need to gather up while you wait for your Schnibbles pattern...
80 charm squares
7/8 yard background
So here we are in the hotter than hot
summer days of August. So what could be a better way to start the month
than to have a little parade? Go ahead, turn on the sprinklers,
grab some ice cold lemonade and
enjoy the parade of George!
Here we have a strikingly handsome version of George
made by Nathalie of Wasteland Wallowing. She changed the pattern
up a bit with the dark background.
This is the most adorable use of a panel I have every seen!
I love the retro colors of this too... it was created by Sandi
at Crazy Bout Quilts blog! The perfect kitchen wall hanging!
This one was created by Leah, and she used a line of
fabrics called Canning Day. So cute!
From the Quilted Pineapple, Linda whipped up her version of and calls it
Georgette... because of the gorgeous fabrics.
Sandy F. (no blog) stepped outside the box and made her version
of George. It is so cute in these bright colors... I love the way the purple border holds it all in.
I think it turned out so sweet! Good for you Sandy, for "embracing the bright"!
