Is There A Doc In The House???

Here it is... the parade of DOC!

I have been going crazy over the quilts that everyone has made using the
Schinbbles pattern Doc!
Sherri and I have a whole lot of Doc's in the house for this parade!

We have some very fun, exciting, special news to share with you...
it's about the Schnibbles quilt for June.

See it here:

There are two versions to chose from. A 16 patch and a 
36 patch. Both are adorable, fun and easy to whip up..
that's why it's called leap year. It can be done
in that one "extra" day! Easie peasie!

I had some leftovers from a shop sample I made recently, so I used them
to make a quick 16 patch as a picnic quilt. I went ahead and added an extra
border because that was left over also... and it was EXACTLY the
right size!
(sorry, it was windy... couldn't keep it flat. I might have to go try that again)

It's called Leap Year.
You haven't seen it around anywhere yet.
And that's because it's a special pattern Carrie
made just for you. 
How nice is that?
Sherri and I wanted to give you a special little something as a thank you for
being in Another Year of Schnibbles and Carrie
is helping us out. Because what would be better than a FREE
pattern for you? 
You just need to be a member of AYOS 
(and that will include you if you have emailed me recently to join in)
So to get your free pattern leave a comment. IF your name starts with
A-K leave me a comment.
if it starts with
L-Z leave a comment on Sherri's parade. 
If you haven't participated in our Schnibbles parades, the pdf patterns will be available for sale at Carrie's shop beginning next Wednesday; paper patterns will be available from her in a couple of weeks.

We thank you for making the first of each month so special for us!
So, do you want to see our parade of Doc?

Let's start:

Here is the first of several gorgeous Doc quilts...
you won't be able to pick a favorite. This one was created by Lesley
at the Cuddle Quilter blog.

Here is a gorgeous little Doc made by Eileen at

 This one is from Kay at Quilt Studio Happenings... she used all
of her 30's fabric stash for this one... well, not all... not even a lot!

 This is a sweet table runner from Karen at Kigwit's blog

Isn't this stunning? This is from Kim at Kim's Big Quilting Adventure.
I love this one!

 Of course... it's tropical... it's from the Patriotic Quilter Joanna!

This Schnibbles quilt was made by Kim at A Peach In Stitches Quilting blog.

 Well, you can see who's quilt this is! And look
at that sweet purse to go with it! Carol from
and Buster is happy to model!

Cheryl's Doc quilt was made with Sweetwater fabric called Lucy's Crab Shack.
How cute is that?

 Here is a beautiful version of Doc made by Denise in PA!
This is Doc by Izzy over at Dizzy Quilts blog.
You can't go wrong with California Girl. 
This just looks so sweet.

 This is the Doc Schnibbles made by Karen in New Mexico.
 I love the grey background with the bright fabric combo!
She used Kate Spain fabrics and left off the border to keep it a little more simple.

This one is from Darlene at Quilting Daze!
I love the way the cornerstones pop out!  A gorgeous quilt!!!

 Andee in Az made her beautiful version of Doc
in these bright and beautiful fabrics. 

Here is another Doc made by Deb (no blog).
She  made her Schnibbles out of these fun colors... love that Vintage Modern

 This one is so soft and precious. This
was made by Gerri! 
 Jill made her version of Doc in a fun group of fabrics called
Sassy by Sandy G. So bright and happy!!!

 Bea from France made this adorable Doc quilt!
It's just as sweet as can bea!
 These colors really excite me! This was made by Gretchen at Stella Bella
Quilts blog. The background is gorgeous too!

Diana at Quilteke made her sweet little Doc into a
pillow! I love the way she used the same fabrics in the same position for 
each block!

 Edith at Red Door Quilting made her beautiful quilt in 
gorgeous warm colors. I love the way this one looks...
and the way she changed the border on it!

 Jan has a wonderful story for her quilt that you can read on her blog.
She made her version using Urban Cowgirl... and she photographed it in 
front of hay! I love it. No, she didn't have to take a trip to Wyoming to do it...
she lives there!
 Christine at Auntie's Quaint Quilts made her Doc using Delilah fabric... so romantic!

This fabric line is so fun... do you see her border fabric?
This is from Karen Quilting Losing and Tea blog

 Here is one happy cat! She is sitting on Brenda's version of Doc.
You can see more of this beautiful quilt at Quilting Along Life's Way blog.
This adorable Doc was created by Carmen.
I like the solid corner squares at opposing ends.

This fun version of Doc was created by Denise at Bitten By The Quilting Bug!
I love the controlled use of color for each block!

 Dorothy from Paws for Stitching wanted to just make one block and 
turn it into a table mat. I see a patriotic theme here, very fun!!!

Here is a gorgeous version made by Kathy at T Creek Quilts.
Lots of impact!

 This cute little one was made by Kay (no blog)
Super sweet!

This is one made by Debbie at Tis the Season blog.
It looks great as a 4 block topper, doesn't it?

I hope that you enjoyed this parade, please go visit Sherri at A Quilting Life
to see lots more eye candy!
I am guessing that you might want to hop over
to La Vie En Rosie and give Carrie some blog love for her
wonderful Leap Year pattern too!

I'm really looking forward to Leap Year. This month's Schnibble (Doc) is the first one I haven't made because I really don't like the card trick block, but the samples that were done are almost convincing me that I should.
