So, We Have This Puppy…..

3 Comments

Our new puppy Lola is adorable.  She’s smart.  She listens well.  But she’s still a puppy.

She went potty on this quilt soon after I took the photo.  I yelled at her.

Anyway, I’ve been spending a lot of time in my sewing room because I can keep her contained there.  Needless to say, I’m getting a LOT of quilting done.  I have enough stuff to write several blog posts.  I’m just not doing it.  I finished the quilt that Lola is sleeping on.  I will have to photograph it soon!  I’m working on two moron projects that deserve their own posts.  And I started two BOMs.  I’ll blog those next week when I work on the next month.

I’ve been wanting to change my quilting style for a long time.  I’ve always bought a fat quarter bundle of a line of fabric and made a quilt with it.  The photo above was done that way.  I want to start making scrap quilts.  It probably means I’m going to have to take apart my fat quarter bundles and sort them by color.

I started another project last night.  I decided to do the APQ quiltalong again.  Here is the info if you’d like to know about it.  I’m going to do this project.  (I borrowed the photo from Lissa’s blog.)

This quilt was designed by Edyta Sitar of Laundry Basket Quilts.  I love her quilts.  She does scrappy projects with lots of little pieces.  I started with a line of fabric, Nell’s Flower Shop, an old line from Moda.  I’ve added a whole bunch of fabrics to it, and I like it so far.  I’m feeling so brave!!!

There are 444 blocks in the quilt.  If I decide to be a moron and do the quilt king size, I’d have to do 1,188 blocks.  I have one block done.

These little blocks finish at 2 inches.  I’m planning to make the smaller quilt and if I’m not sick of it, I’ll go for the king size.

I have all the strips cut and sewn for the four patches.

It’s a start!  We’re doing a quilt retreat next week, so I’ll have lots of time to sew.

And now I have a puppy that needs to go outside.  After that, I think I’ll go sew four patches while she plays.

  1. Those pieces are tiny! You are nuts!
    I started a scarf. All knitting. I’m glad I at least remember how to knit and purl. You are a good teacher.
    I’m using “single-ply” yarn I got in Florida. It’s “okay.” Not great… But I love the colors.

    I’m going to have to stop in and get a “puppy-fix.” Is that okay?

    Must say I missed the descriptive references to your family. I guess Lola is the new focal point. She’s so cute!

  2. That is awesome and will be spectacular.

  3. Ohhhhh, the poor little thing. She is soooo dang cute!! Love that picture. Good luck with the 1,000+ patches quilt….yeah…they’d be wrapping me up in whatever was completed and taking me off to some secluded rest home. I just can’t imagine…. Do love seeing pics of your quilts, though. You do great work; so beautiful. I think Lola needs a quilt of her own!
