When Covid began for us in early 2020 I found that Alex Anderson was doing some Facebook and UTube programing three times a week. This included online projects as well that helped occupy the time when my guild and small quilt groups could no longer meet. I have been watching her programs weekly since then. I have made two different project with her over this past year and have recently decided to make her newest one as well.
I had to purchase her book Paper Piecing with Alex Anderson 2nd Edition. This is the project I am starting this week.
Alex had available a kit of fabrics for the project, but I am determined to avoid buying fabric and use my stash. I also have a whole slew of white and off white prints to add to the mix as needed.So I am off to making the first center blocks.My first two of the six blocks blocks are done. Don't let this pathetic little baby fool you. Zoey was spay on the 9th of this month. She came home with a Cone on her head looking even sadder. However, the Cone did not avoid her using her back foot to tear out her stitches 4 days later. Back to the vet for emergency care overnight and home again with staples now on the incision. Now a Cone is not going to cure the foot scratching so she is now wrapped in a cloth bandage with a velcro fastener. Now I know this all looks pretty sad, but do not be fooled. She has not stopped for even a minute. She is happily running around the house, barking at the front screen at anyone passing by and chasing the birds in the back yard away from the fountain. She has not missed a meal and is doing just fine. Husband and I have just about recovered from the drama of it all. Hopefully the staples come out on the 28th and this ordeal will be over.
Your fabric pulls are gorgeous! Looks like a fun project. Oh the worries that our pets deal us - she is just adorable. Glad she is doing fine.ReplyDelete

She does look so so sad. Glad she is in good spirits despite the lack of comfort. Thank you for linking up. This will quilt will be beautiful in scraps.ReplyDelete
Pet problems are usually harder on the pet parents than on the fur babies. Glad you and your hubby are recovering! Good luck with the quilt, it is absolutely beautiful.ReplyDelete
That's a beautiful quilt design, and looks fun to work on with so many different elements! Zoey has the cutest little face - I hope she's all healed up now.ReplyDelete
I'm pleased Zoey is coming along well. Did you make the tummy wrap yourself or is it a commercial one? Seems such a good idea as no animal likes wearing those awful cones.ReplyDelete
sounds like a fun way to use scraps! Poor Zoey!ReplyDelete
She is just too cute!ReplyDelete
