BACK TO BACK
We share our hearts and home with two special furbabies, Dottie and Olive, our two female Scotties. I snapped this cute picture yesterday while they were napping. They often either spoon each other or lay back-to-back. They are from two different breeders, but they are as closes as sisters because they have lived together since Olive (pink collar) was a wee pup.
I have the urge to start sewing again and I think I will start off with a Chopped quilt. The picture below is taken from the Late Summer 2014 issue of BLOCK magazine from Missouri Star.
Jeff and I took a trip to Missouri Star last Fall and I saw two Chopped block quilts made of totally different fabrics. The design is a variation of the Framed Square block and it's super simple to make. I wanted to make every quilt we saw on display but I had to narrow it down a little.
Our days are feeling like Spring and we're getting buds on our trees. The yellow lilies are coming up green and I see daffodils everywhere we go. Our fingers are crossed that snow and ice are over with for another year.
This is a good time to organize your fabric stash and make a To-Do list for Spring and Sumer quilting. I'm pulling fabric out to make a Christmas quilt for our neighbors. If I start it now maybe I can get it done by Summer and quilted by early Fall.
Wishing everyone a blessed Sunday and week ahead.
