A Parade of Le Petite and A Parade of Winners!

Before we start the parade... I need to start the month with our lucky winners of the sponsored giveaway!
The following people have won a Scrap Basket Sensations book written by Kim Brackett and generously given away by the Fat Quarter Shop.

Winner numero uno is random generated number 16... chrissy said...
My favorite thing about the Fat Quarter Shop is the 'view all' feature, so I can look at all the pretty fabrics in a category together!

our 2nd lucky winner is #71 ...Quilt Sue said...
Where do I start? I love their fabrics, their service, their speed, the way they will tell you when something is in stock that you have been interested in, their wide range of stock .... I could go on and on.

The 3rd lucky winner  is #55 Patty D from NC ...said...

Love the quilt! I have the book already and still trying to figure out which quilt I want to do. Since I have seen yours on your blog, which looks like so much fun to make, i am going through my stash to pick out the perfect fabric for it. Thanks so much for the inspiration!

Our 6th winner is #35 the lucky ...Lisa Marie said...
The FQS has such a big selection of fabrics! Lots of inspiration just cruising their site.
Congratulations to all of you winners and a big than you to the Fat Quarter Shop for being so generous and giving away all of these wonderful books!
****Please send me your addresses so we can send you your prizes!****
If you aren't already aware of it, the Fat Quarter Shop is starting a Scrap Basket Sensations Club! Please go check it out on their site! I know it's going to be a great club- the kits will be for the latest and the greatest fabrics that will match up with one of Kim's wonderful patterns from the book! It will be a quick fun project every 3 months for a year!!! Easie peasie!!

One more thing before we have the Parade...
it's time to show you...

 our next Le Petite project
 we have:

In Carrie's own words:
"There are quilts that you have to think about. A lot. And then there are quilts that you can just start putting together. This is one of those kinds of quilts -- just cut it out and start sewing. If you want to lay it out, you can do that but you don't have to." ~Carrie Nelson

Fabric requirements:
76 charm squares
3/4 yard background
but wait...
Sherri and I decided (late last night)
that even though Ric Rac is as cute as can be...some of you might not be up for triangles...
so we thought we would offer a second choice this month...
so your 2nd option is...
Recess Schnibbles Charm Pack Pattern Miss Rosie's Quilt Company Schnibbles Pattern
Fabric requirements:
77 charm squares
5/8 yard background
this pattern can actually be made from either a jelly roll or your charm packs!

Okay, NOW-  are we ready for the parade?!!
