I spent much of yesterday making quilt block parts and ended up with three completed blocks by 10:30 last night. Got the idea from Carolyn Forster (see next picture with link to her blog). Except I made my dogs have pointy ears and tail. I think I'll sash them similar to hers also.
|I used 2 inch squares and the blocks turned out to be 12 1/2" unfinished. I'm going to make 9 (3x3) and maybe make the little stuffed dog too! And hopefully this will make it to my cousin's little grand baby soon!|
|Have you seen this cute little quilt made by Carolyn Forster, while perusing quilt blogs or Pinterest?|
|I've added the borders, but need to get some backing for this. I plan to try and get a little more creative with my machine quilting.|
|Also, I thought I'd show you this picture of the purple quilt on the bed with the filtered afternoon light coming in. The grayish purples can be very calming and good for a bedroom.|
Lastly, have you begun the new year with some exercise? I went for a 1 1/2 mile walk yesterday and today, a 10 mile bicycle ride out to a wildlife preserve. About half way there, I wished I'd brought my camera or GoPro. I'll have to bring it next time and want to do some posts like that for motivation for me (and maybe you too)!
