Little Bites Parade: Sample aka ode to Carrie

First of all, I have to let you know that Sherri will not be able to
post her half of the parade today. So you will be getting a 
little parade here today and something to look forward to tomorrow!

I am going to go rogue here and tell you the next project I am choosing for us...
oh um no... I can't pick a project on my own... you have to wait... so sorry!





Okay... now,
let's start the parade!


Little Bites Quilt Pattern from Miss Rosie's Quilt Co. This is a sampler quilt that uses mini charm packs


A Sampler is one thing... but a mini Sampler??
Isn't that a little above and beyond for
an average quilter like me?
That's what I told myself when I first saw this pattern...
I have to confess....



I loved making every single block of this Little Bites
Sample!
I was so happy to be reading one of Carrie's patterns again...
she always writes her directions as though she is sitting right there
with you... 
it was much like having an old friend over to sew a project together.

I thought I was going to make the alternate version... but once I got started...
I had to try them all!
Like a box of chocolates!

We have a nice assortment of Sample so I hope you enjoy the
rest of the parade!


Patty at A Stitch in Time blog made this gorgeous version of Sample.
Once again she did her spiral quilting... that looks fabulous!
Patty has a little tutorial on her blog on how to do the quilting...
I recommend having a look at it. I know I feel brave enough to 
try it out now!



I fell in love with this version of Sample by Cathy R. when I saw it!
The border is so, SO cute!
The cornerstones bring it all together perfectly!
Cathy had just returned to blogging and has a new blog you might
enjoy.... Sew Pieceful




This one if from Dorothy at Paws for Stitching blog.
I love the pink and grey!
She is going to leave her mini Sampler as an 
octagon shape as pictured here.
It fits perfectly on her table... a nice bonus!


Here we have a little Sample with a pop of pink made by Lynn
in New Zealand! It's just as cute as can be.

Lynn had so much fun with this pattern that she
made another...


One is just as adorable as the other one!
Lynn is a new blogger... so be sure to stop by her blog and give her 
some love!



This wonderfully sweet little Sample was made by Mary,
at Needled Mom blog. 
It is adorable, don't you think?




Here Nancy made her Little Bites Sample bold!
It is so dramatic with the straight set and the sharp contrast in colors!
Beautiful!


Polly from Aunt Polly's Porch made a spicy version of Sample!
She always gives her project a little punch of pizazz!



This Sample was created by Susan! It is so peaceful
to look at... I wonder,
 is it the colors she used or a reflection of the 
quilter herself?


Be sure to visit tomorrow at A Quilting Life for 
more of Sample!

I always love seeing how different the projects turn out once everyone puts their own spin on them. They are all beautiful. Like you, I loved trying the different blocks this time.

Can't wait to see Sherri's parade:-)

I loved each and every one of the little quilts.....

I have to tell you though, I looked at your blog title and had one of those "oh no" moments. It's parade time? Where did the month go? Where's my picture? Oh yeah......I totally dropped the ball this month..... :(
March was crazy and April will be crazier! Weddings, vacation and remodeling of the entire first floor of the house..... I may be MIA till July at this rate .

Can't wait to see the mini's Sherri posts tomorrow.

All the quilts are gorgeous, each in their own unique way!

Sinta, so glad your husband is doing much better. Lovely parade and look forward to what you and Sherri come up with for next month.

Michelle said...

Beautiful! Sorry to have missed it this month. Hopefully I'll do better in April!

I've loved this pattern since Carrie released it and really wanted to join in last month. I even picked out my fabric and ordered backing and sashing for it, but unfortunately I just didn't have the time to do it. It's definitely on my list though, especially after seeing everyone else's beautiful samplers. It looks great in Susan's tranquil blues as well as everyone else's bright colors. And I enjoy seeing Patty's spiral quilting. I'm really going to have to try that soon.

They are all so cute! I especially love the one by CathyR. I'm off to find her blog. How crazy does it seem to do a sampler in mini though?! Maybe that's the way that would suit me!
