AYOS Parade of Whit

First ...
Happy birthday to Carrie aka Miss Rosie's Quilt Co.
we adore you! And happy birthday to anyone else who shares this
day... (like me) and like Polly of Minick and Simpson!!!
I think of it as the official start of the holiday season!
Which includes pie!
That is my version of a birthday cake... PIE!
(just so you know)!

First again...
I know I was ready for the parade first thing this morning!
Well, I was ready to see it... and I am sure you were also...
the only problem was that I needed to create the post.
That took a little bit of time but here it is!

Here is a gorgeous assortment of Whit from
a wonderful group of bloggers!!!
Are you ready?
There is a lot to see!



I will start with my Whit! 
Isn't she cute with red polka dots?
I really enjoyed making this pattern... 
but 16 blocks was just enough for me! Wink!



This version of Whit was made by Patty using Elementary fabric by Sweetwater.




Linda from the Quilted Pineapple made this little beauty!




This is from Michelle... so pretty and dramatic with the black background!



Nancy (no blog) made her sweet two color version using Kansas Troubles fabric.




Nicole made a beautiful Whit just like the cover version so she could have one of her own.




Peg at Stitchin' Between the Lines blog created this beautiful blue version of
Whit! I do have to say, I favor this setting!







Sue made a beautiful Whit using gorgeous colors and two shades of grey background.
That was clever!



Here is a cutie little Whit made by Susan! (no blog)
So sweet! 


I love the drama here! Peg made this stunning neutral version!
(someone else had the same idea-- you can see it over on Sherri's parade)



Sue has a sweet little take on her Whit project. There is more about it on 
Wendy's post.



Her is Wendy's version of Whit. I love Sue's and Wendy's both!



Here we have an adorable version made by Mindy!
The wreath gives you a good clue as to size comparison doesn't it?


This beautiful version was created by Patti (no blog).
I love the colors!




Here is an extra sweet version of Whit made by Polly of Aunt Polly's Porch.
She is the queen of cute!


What's next?!?

Harvey by Miss Rosie's Quilt Co.

Harvey! Who can resist this one?
Well, I know some of you have an answer to that right now... but
really, there's time! I know you want to make it!!!

Okay, hop over to see the rest of the parade at Sheri's A Quilting Life, if you haven't already been there!
And also, stop back by tomorrow to see any of the quilts of Whit that were not shown today (because as much as I try... there is always someone who gets left out) but aside from that... there is
prize winner's tomorrow too!!!

Happy Birthday Sinta.......You have some awesome people to share your birthday with!

I went and checked Sherri's blog after checking your parade and I cannot tell you how happy I was to see all the pretty projects. One was more awesomer than the next....Everyone used wonderful fabrics and it was nice to see all 3 versions of the pattern used!

I'm already working on the October project since it's much bigger....

Thank you so much for starting up the parade......A perfect way to start October off!!!

Love the variety and creativity of the projects. I do have my Whit fabric and pattern on my sewing table but I decided to make costumes for two of my grandchildren and have been distracted. I will get it done and plan to do the October project, pattern ready. Loved the parade!

A belated happy birthday to you! Hopefully you had a wonderful day celebrating. I love the polka dot border on your Whit quilt. This one was a lot of fun to do and I loved that there were 3 versions to choose from. It's so much fun to see what everyone chose.
