Here is my Block 4 Puppy Love Mini Quilt which is the April Snapshots block. Can I tell you how excited I was about this block? I love dogs and puppies are the best!
I made the puppy look like our youngest dog and perpetual puppy, Bella. She will turn 5 years old in September, but still behaves like a bad puppy. My hubby said good night to her on Saturday night and his cell phone slipped out of his pocket unbeknownst to him. Well, of course Bella chewed it up and left it for him to find on Sunday morning. I am sure she thought it was a remote control--she ate over a dozen of those before she was banned from being in the main house. At least she did not eat the battery and need a visit to the vet!
I am using the corner pieces to hang these mini quilts with thumbtacks in my sewing room, plus they are perfect for labeling.
Here is the Block 3 Put the Kettle On March block that I quilted and bound this weekend
and its back, hanger, and label. I am using mostly Bonnie and Camille fabrics and trying to use what I have on hand and not buy anything.
This is the big quilt which I decided to make as mini quilts to make them easier to hang.
This is Block 1 Let them Eat Cake
and Block 2 Sew On & Sew On. Directions for the blocks can be found here http://fatquartershop.blogspot.com/p/snapshots-quilt-along.html
I have my book for the new Lori Holt Farm Girl Vintage Sew Along that starts on May 1. I ordered some background fabric today. I selected a white with small black polka dots as she recommended for $5 a yard over at 1000s of Bolts and One Nut. I ordered 7 yards more than I need, but I never mind having some in my stash. Hopefully, I can shop in my stash for the rest of the fabric.
You can find more details about this Sew Along here http://beeinmybonnetco.blogspot.com/2015/04/im-so-excited-to-announce-my-latest.html
Come on join everyone, the more the merrier!
I am working on some secret sewing, so I will get that posted once I can. It was nice to be back in my sewing room!
