Finished and on the wall. It will be hard to find something like this one that is as much fun to work on.
My guild newsletter in January started a mystery quilt. I figured that I would be able to use my stash for it and move a bit of odds and end leftover off the shelves. The white fabrics are all leftovers from other projects so I am able to rid myself of some of those pesky scraps.January's start was just the cutting directions and then February had you making these little 4 patches. March added the two florals.And finished off with white fabrics. I now have 32 of these 8.5 inch blocks. Interesting to see where April's instruction go. Must admit they are a nice spring theme. Perfect for this time of year.
The local Pregnancy Center is asking for small baby quilts. Their preferred size is 36" square. These guys go together really fast at that size. This is the one finished off this past week. I don't have to do anything other than a top and prepared binding. Our charity group takes care of the process of backs, batting, quilting and finishing with the binding. I have a couple more cut and ready to put together. Pretty much I am using the same pattern. Block sizes are 9 inch finished.
Yes, Ginger the snooty Yorkshire Terrier finally decided she likes her new quilt. This is her favorite nap time place in my sewing room. She pulled out her flannel blanket that you can see just in the right hand bottom corner, and pulled her quilt into her bed. A good 5 minutes of pawing it, pushing it with her nose and head and finally several wiggles and bunching it up into this perfect arrangement and nap time comfort was finally achieved.
Oh ginger is so funny--she looks very comfy on her new quilt...ReplyDelete
I like your Art piece--very nice work...
Hahaha...I'm glad Ginger decided to accept her quilt. She looks very comfy in it in her cozy bed. Your guild sew-a-long blocks are so cheerful and spring like. Your fabrics look so nice together, good job. Thanks for linking with Design Wall Mondays, JudyReplyDelete

Thank you for joining the Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop.
Have a fabulous Wordless Wednesday. ♥
I’ve had a great time this afternoon reading lots of your older posts! Since I couldn’t comment on the older posts I would like to here. I tried Baklava this past Christmas too. But my “basting sauce” was just 21/2 cups of honey. Too sweet. Are you willing to share your recipe?ReplyDelete
How cool to be part of the mystery quilt! I'm sure it will be a fabulous finish.ReplyDelete
So, your pup did decided to appreciate your work!
Thank you for being a part of 'My Corner of the World' this week!
Love the finish and very interested in where the challenge is going. And oh my, that goggie is sooo precious! My dogs love to sleep on the quilt we leave on the couch. But there's not as much scrunching it up to lay on. LOL Thanks for linking up with To-Do! Good luck on next week's goals.ReplyDelete
I'm pleased that Ginger finally decided she rather likes her new quilt after all. It must have been so funny to see her doing all that rearranging, to get it just right. Your art piece is lovely.ReplyDelete

Isn't it funny, they never want to snuggle with their quilts. What a little sweetie! I can't wait to see where the mystery quilt is going. Love those colors.ReplyDelete
We had our quilt board meeting this morning. The last one was in October. We will be having a business meeting this month with reservations taken as the center is still limiting group size. Praying that by May we can go back to "normal" after not having a meeting now since Feb. 2020.ReplyDelete
