AYOS 13/14: A Glance Back

Happy parade day to you!

I love this opportunity to take a look back at our past year of 
Here are some of my AYOS projects for this past year. 
Also today we announce the new pattern for next month!
Actually, in this case we are going to announce not one but two patterns!

This year in AYOS we decided to mix it up a bit... of course we
will have Schnibbles patterns on the list, but adding in a Little Bite or other
small quilt from "guest" designers.

Sherri and I decided to start off with a Little Bites pattern...
this month is Whit! 
I am showing a photo of Carrie's but I will have mine ready to show once I return home from vacation.
(yes, I have been slacking)!
Do you like choices?
There are 3 versions to pick from in this pattern.
I am making this one because I love pinwheel blocks... and
in this case, I love the way the flying geese make the pinwheel.

The second project to announce is Harvey! I love this guy!!!
I wanted to make it ever since Carrie came out with it at Market... and
here is my opportunity!
It is a Scnibbles pattern... but with a little difference...
this quilt is 72" square. 

Yes, it's a big one... but still made with a couple charm packs, plus a 
little bit more. 
We thought if we announced it now that would give you time to make the 
Little Bites pattern... and then get started on Harvey for the November parade!

Patterns are available at various places but for sure available at the Miss Rosie shop and
at Fat Quarter Shop. The patterns are also available as PDF downloads... so quick and easy...
they are in your hands!
Okay, what do you say?!? 
Are you ready to get started??? I hope so!
Sherri and I enjoy our parades each month and seeing your version 
of the patterns!

Speaking of which, let's get this parade started and have a look back at your 
AYOS quilts from last year.
I have the photos below, but please click on the links to read the posts everyone shared
for their quilts... I know you will enjoy seeing the complete collections of them all!!!

Michelle has a beautiful group of quilts to share on her blog.

Patty's amazing version of Hook here... you need to go see more
from her even if it's only to see her quilting!

Here is a sweet Gentle Art from Dorothy at Paws for Stitching blog.

Polly once again has a gorgeous collection to share!

I love this one from Sue! She shares her beautiful quilts on Wendy's blog....

Morning Jo from Wendy! Be sure to go see all of her traveling quilts
displayed so sweetly on her blog.

I hope you are playing along this year with us!
I am anxious to get started! 
I hope to have a new button for this year for Another Year of Schnibbles
 made up soon.
I will also be making a new list on my sidebar of every one's blog name who 
are in AYOS this time around so please let me know!
Sherri has the other have of the parade at A Quilting Life! (as usual)
I hope you enjoyed looking back at the sweet little quilts we have made!
Thank you Carrie aka Miss Rosie for keeping us entertained!

I will be traveling home today... hopefully I have included every one's link from my inbox.
I will add any other's coming in today as soon as I can!

(I'm hoping to hit a quilt shop on my way home...  a nice way to end a 
trip don't you think)?

Bring it on Sinta and Sherri! I have already ordered and received my PDF pattern for WHIT from Carrie's website. I have a wide variety of charm packs - now to decide what to use!
