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.

  1. Love the dogs, I had a Bichon and a Westie that slept together in a tangle, sometimes it was difficult to see where one ended and the other began.
