The Dog Days of Spring???

Here is a typical day for our 14 year old pug, LUCY!!!

The biggest decision she has to make is which bed to sleep in!!

OOOPS!  There is someone in one of her beds!

Aha - it's Alison's puggle, WEBSTER!!

Back in a Current Magazine!!

Yes, indeed, I have another quilt in a current magazine.

It is in the Spring 2012 issue of a
 Better Homes and Garden Special Interest Publication

Quilts and More!

And on page 90 you will find my quilt - 


The fabrics are from Michael Miller Fabrics and are also available in a pink/gray combination for the little girls in your lives.

Cross your fingers - as I may have a quilt on the cover of the same publication for the Summer 2012 issue!

Stay tuned!

A couple of weeks ago, I had a call from Free Spirit Fabrics 
to do a special project.

They wanted a pieced hanging - 6.5' x 10' - to hang in their trade show booth
at the LA Textile Show later this month.  This piece was to feature 
100+ of their Essentials fabric lines.

So, I submitted 4 potential designs for their review. 
 They picked one and I went to work!!

I shipped it out yesterday and I am happy to say they are delighted with it!!

This pieced hanging features 103 - 8" blocks - in random designs.
It is so fun to make - once you get creating - because one fabric cut leads to another and another and so on!!

The black and white zebra fabric is a perfect accent to the many colors.
It is so easy to pop in the plastic grommets and they come in so many colors!
Curtain weights were added to the bottom - 
and wa-la - it's a finished masterpiece!!

And the beauty of this is that it can be made in any size!!

A bit of a close up!!

Hopefully this inspires you in some way and makes your day!!
