Am I the only one who hasn't finished this one yet? Come on... I know there must be others, right?
Well, either way. It's back and I'm madly in love with the project again. Here is the deep tangerine block. I love spending time with the scraps, figuring out where I want everything, pinning them, and then sewing them down.
There was a lovely day this past weekend that I spent outside in the sunshine working with my scraps. Darn near heaven!!
The girls thought it was divine too! Here is Katie snoozing.
Sammy slept a wink here and there, but spent most of her time chasing ants and bugs and in general trying to devise a way to get her paws on my scraps.
Isn't that fox just adorable?
Once in awhile something interesting stirred the pups to move around.
But I melted when I saw where Katie decided to rest her head. Awww!!!
These two can be the best quilting buddies ever sometimes. What more could a girl want besides sunshine, pups, and fabric?
Here is the lavender block. I didn't have as many scraps that perfectly matched this color, but I decided that wasn't going to hold me back. I think that was what stopped me the last time.
So, in the hopes of finishing this quilt up over the next month or so, I pushed through and decided that as long as it complimented ... it would be used. And I love it!
I also never really appreciated the portability of being able to pick, cut, and place fabrics away from my sewing machine. And then later sew everything down.
Here are the four I have completed and sewn. Although, somebody (no naming names.... rhymes with Whammy) thought it would be funny to run and slide through my squares. Puppies!!
Here is a more proper picture of the four.
I have the lavender one nearly sewn down and I am starting in on fuchsia after that. I am still trying to come up with the name of this quilt, but am just enjoying this project again ... and that's what quilting is all about, right?
