I treasure my time with both quilting and my beloved Greater Swiss Mountain Dogs and now the Smelly Bassets, too. McGee is not allowed in the sewing room because he eats fabric. Just my luck to get him, right? DiNozzo and Chloe sleep in my quilting studio, under my feet and are awesome critics of my work. Of course, a bone will always sway their opinions!
I quilt for pleasure and try to teach a bit and laugh a lot along the way. Come enjoy the journey with me and the dogs.
I want to promise myself that I will not come out of my quilt room without organizing something. Anything.
Here it is nearly 11 am, and will be by the time I complete this, and I have not yet achieved that goal.
But I did sit with my dog a bit. And I made myself a cup of coffee to sip with him. And that was a good use of my time.He had gone out to sun a while and came in frantic about something. Not sure what it was.
I am preparing for a paper piecing class I am teaching. It is the precursor to a project I want to do and thought my group would like to learn a new technique. I am going to do tessellated cats with them and then turn it into a baby quilt. A sneaky way to get a project done from my stash!
But they will be pleased I think to "donate" their blocks to the cause. This is not the pattern I am using but it is a cute cat tessellation!
To the right is a quilt pattern by Jan Miller called Sawtooth Cats. I want to make this soon. If I get the people interested in making cats, maybe it will be sooner than later!
PS: See, I am doing anything to get out of cleaning up the quilt room.......
