How about both?
I feel like I have been on the losing side of some serious
"card playing"... I keep getting dealt bad hands!
I have returned from my trip and have returned to
something resembling normal...
and I will save my no computer access story for tomorrow.
Whenever I hear Canasta... I am taken back in time
to when I use to play that card game
with my grandma, hours on end, day in and day out.
I enjoy playing card games and board games as well.
I am sure it was because of all the quality time
I had with my grandma... Mayme.
I was so happy to see this pattern from Carrie, (Miss Rosie's Quilt Co.)
Thank you Carrie for once again coming up with
a NEW favorite Schnibbles!
Who doesn't love basket blocks anyway?
I'm sure you are going to love this parade and if you haven't made
this Schnibbles pattern yet... you might be regretting it by the
end of the parade!
But before we get started with that...
let me tell you what we will be working on
Here is what Sherri at A Quilting Life and I have picked for you:
Here is what you will need to get started:
2 charm packs
3/4 yd background and outer border
Carrie will have a pdf version available on her web store by now!
Just checked, yes, it's there!
Michele at Island Life Quilts
made this pretty little Canasta quilt.
I love the background fabrics as much as the
Mary in Michigan
Sally made her Canasta using Sweet Romance by
Blackbird Designs. It is sweet and romantic!
Patty at A Stitch in Time has a beautiful backdrop
to show off her gorgeous Canasta quilt! I love
the change she made to the border!
I am showing Lincoln of Paulette's because
I didn't get it into the last parade for some reason.
Here is Paulette's quilt of Canasta for this month...
she has forgiven me!
Isn't it so soft, sweet and vintage looking?
Here is a sweet little Canasta made by Susan.
Her little blocks are so cute! I like how she is finishing it off
with the diagonal pieced fabrics that were used in the blocks!
Thelma at Cupcake n' Daisies made a
beautiful group of baskets in
her version of Canasta!
Even a bikini basket!
Yeah, you will know it when you see it!
This red and white beauty was created by Nancy!
Nicole at Sister's Choice is back! And she made a spooky version of
Canasta to celebrate a changing of seasons!
Here is a little gem made by Sandy F.
How sweet is this?!?
Here is a super sweet red and white version
made by Linda at the Quilted Pineapple!
I think I might have to make this one up again as
a two color quilt!
Tilda made a beautiful version of Canasta...
love the mix of colors here!
Adorable! Seriously, a-dor-able!
This Canasta was made by
Sandie at Crazy 'bout Quilts!
To finish off the parade we have a striking version of
Wendy's Canasta quilt. I love the elegant look and
the way the inner border and binding finishes it off so
That's the parade... thanks so much for waiting, and waiting, and waiting for
me to get my fingers back onto a keyboard and get this finished!
I will be back tomorrow with parade prizes!!! Promise!
Well, I might be back sooner if there was anyone I missed!
