The April Parade

I told you all how I was going to join in on the schnibbles parade. I was at the front of the parade maybe becasue my last name starts with a letter A or maybe becasuse Sherri was so sweet and didn't want anyone to noitce what a knucklehead I am.

Sometimes sewing is mindless and you just sit down and start sewing the long line of chained pieces together. This is the part of the process that is so theraputic and MINDLESS, right?
Well I sent Sherri my pic and said, My quilt doesn't look like a T, it looks like a mushroom.

I mindlessly sewed all my triangles on wrong side and created a completely different quilt.
Thank you Sherri for not pointing it out to the world!!

This is my quilt top.

This is quilt from Michelle at and how the quilt is supposed to look.

I am going to try it again. Next month's pattern is Summer Day.
Let's see if I can successfully get this one right!!

Thanks Sherri and Sinta for still including my misfit quilt in the parade. Don't tell Carrie or she will make fun of me.


  1. I can imagine many of the blocks we put together today were originally some other block put together in a different way than intended. That just makes yours original, not wrong! Those little blocks would make great flower pot blocks.

  2. Lissa, I like your blocks! I think they look like little t-shirts.

  3. You may have sewn it wrong but it is still very cute and I love the colors. Truly one of a kind.

  4. Your quilt actually looks like T-shirts. So a different sort of T.

  5. T-shirts is what I thought you were going for as well! Still very cute!

  6. Hey, at least you finished. I have yet to make a deadline. I finished the January one in March. I didn't do February and March is still on the sewing machine.

  7. I thought yours was wonderful! A variation of the pattern :-) The quilts that were a little different were some of my favorites! I'm flattered that you used a picture of mine :-)

  8. I think your mushroom quilt is really cute :)

  9. LOL! You are so funny! I thought you were just following the way the quilt "spoke" to you!
