Parade Day!

I think when Lisa, Nicole and I came up with our idea for a Quick Curve Ruler Sew-Along, we promised a parade at the end of the summer.  I think September 1st constitutes the end of summer, so hurray, it's parade day!

First up is Dawn's Dancing Churndash pattern, which she has named Good Day Sunshine.

I think Dawn was the last one to start the sew-along but the first one to have a totally finished quilt.  Click here to read and see more.  Great Job Dawn!  I love the pattern and your choice of fabrics.  I've added this one to my To Do List.

Here's another finished top, this Metro Rings was made by Ramona.

Ramona is leaving the borders wide to try her hand at scalloped borders.  This is another beautifully pieced top made with some of my favorite colors.  Great Job Ramona!!

Here is Mickey's top, Metro Lattice

Mickey enjoyed working on Metro Lattice so much she plans to make Metro Rings next.

Here's a little sample of how Mickey plans to quilt her Metro Lattice, good luck Mickey, your quilting is fabulous and perfect for this quilt.  Great Job Mickey!!

Kristen also made a Metro Lattice.

Kristen has yet to blog about how she got along quilting this top, but be sure to check her blog, Meadowbrook, for updates, I will.  Great Job Kristen!

Vicky has all her Metro Scope blocks pieced, they just need to be connected.

Vicky, finish this up, there's a bed in LA just waiting for this quilt!  Click here to read about Vicky's experiences while piecing this top.  Great Job Vicky!

Here is Diana's Metro Rings, that she name Disappearing Rings. 

Diana is also playing around with a smaller Metro Rings block for a baby quilt that she's named Teething Rings!  HAHAHA good one.  Click here to read all about it!  Great Job Diana!

And here's one more Metro Rings quilt, queen size!

Susan made this quilt as a blessing quilt for her son and his bride to be.  Friends and family will write words of blessing for their marriage in the background fabric! Great Job Susan!  But I think this quilt will get even better!

And here's what I made for the sew along!

One Metro Scope block.

This block was easy to piece and came together perfectly.  I think this is a good first block if you're still undecided which pattern you want to try. I hope to make this block into a pillow.

And my Metro Hold the Lattice, using Persimmon by BasicGrey.

I need to get this quilt top to a quilter,  it will look great in my sunroom this fall, wait, it's September 1st, it IS fall.

And finally, remember this?  This was the project I made from Jenny's misfit blocks.  I named my project Round About.

Jenny has created a free tutorial on piecing this block on her blog here.  And she's named it Cupcake! Thanks Jenny, love the block, love the name!!

Thanks to all who took time out of their busy summer to sew along with us.  I had fun, I hope you did!  Nicole has some parade pictures too, be sure to check them out as well.

If I missed your finished project send an email and I'll add it! Thanks!
