May Day Parade (of Le Petite)

Happy May Day!
(does anybody celebrate this one anymore)?
This has been a big week for me and a big weekend too! Not only was there a royal wedding, but my nephew got married Saturday too. Here in the states, so I didn't have too far to travel! hehe

I have a 300 post/2 year blogiversary going on right now, so be sure to scroll down
and enter into the giveaway after the parade!

Let me show you what the next proejct for Le Petite is:
and since it's going to be Mother's Day next, Sherri and I decided to pick a
project that you can do for free.
This one is from Moda Bake Shop called Candy Bar!
It's small and quick and fun. And it only uses a "candy bar" or
one half of a charm pack.
I actually used leftovers to make mine.
But this is a picture of the one from MBS.

I hope you enjoy making this project. I swear that I had mine made in a few hours tops!
and I hope you enjoy....

The BROCANTE` Parade!

Lets  start off with this quilt from Joyce as And Sew On blog.
Love the color! It looks like confetti!

Lovely parade! And I really like the Candy Bar Pinwheels so I think I'm going to make it for myself just because. I have a ton of charm packs that I can cut into and finally use them.

Parade Day is definitely a favourite of mine, a bit sad I did not make it this month, but still so excited to see everyones' awesome versions!

Well done All!
