ROSE QUILT PROGRESS AND ART IDEAS

This past week I set aside my Confetti and Spinning Spools projects  to get more done on my Rose quilt.  

At last I have all the flowers on and one of the final borders.  Lots of leaves to appliqué yet.  I do plan to quilt this myself.  

I happened into JoAnn's last week.  Our oldest daughter Monique sent me a $50 gift certificate so thought to take a look to see what was available.  Their batiks were on sale at 25% off, so I took advantage of the opportunity to stock up on some blues.

Additionally I pulled some pinks and green along with a couple new pink additions from our local quilt shop.  I have an artsy piece in mind. 


I saw these ideas in an Art Quilting magazine, so has me thinking somewhere along this line.  Wish I was more creative, but I always need a picture idea or a pattern.     
  
 


Meet Lisa the dog and Pip the cat our oldest daughter's two pets.  These two are great friends.  Apparently Liza seems to think that Pip is a pillow. I can't tell if Pip is just tolerating this or likes it.  My daughter says that Pip is the boss, so if she isn't happy she would let Lisa know.

  2. The cat doesn't look too comfortable to me. But I guess she'd take care of the matter if she was bothered. Too funny.

  7. I have to apologize. I have been having issues commenting. For some reason, if I use my tablet, some of the comments don't "stick". I only figured that out this week. \
    I love how the quilt is turning out. I love your cone flower idea. When you are done, you will have made it your own. The shot of Pip and Lisa is terrific! I KNOW that would not happen with any of the cats and Cinnamon (the dog) here!

  8. Love your rose quilt! Great that you've gotten back to it. Not sure about the cat, but from all the cats I've owned, if the cat didn't like it it would definitely let that dog know! Thanks for sharing on Wednesday Wait Loss.

  15. Your rose quilt is gorgeous, and I love the pieced background, wonder why I never think of stitching a pieced background now and again. It certainly adds a lot of interest. Wonderful batiks from your shopping spree. And just loved seeing those two old friends cuddled up together.
