More bright ideas!

I had a bit more time to play with this brights today and managed to get two borders on this quilt.  I still need to add one more final border to bring the quilt up to the right size.  Hopefully that will happen on Sunday.
I also managed to cut out some squares for a similar quilt, this one a 1930's baby quilt for a very special little baby I heard about today.  More on that another day.  I have had this bundle of fat quarters for at least a couple of years.
 Time these pretty colours saw the light of day don't you think?
 And just before I finish, I thought I would show you what is supposed to be MY leather chair and ottoman.    What?  You can't see it?  It is under all those quilts and cushions and the DOG.  That is Maisy snuggled on the back of it.  Usually there are two dogs on it; Snickers on the blue cushion!
 I need all the quilts and cushions protecting it so that the dogs don't scratch the living daylights out of the chair with their nails.  I would like to keep them off it but I can't see them all the time and in the end decided that this was my only option.
It is not like I have much time for sitting in it really, except for when I am sick, which thankfully, is not all that often!

Lucy they are so cute!

Till next time...................happy stitching!


  1. I love the quilt and the bright colors. I am determined to cut scraps 10 1/2 inches strips for future church quilts. My closet is full of draws and bags of fabric, they need to attention. Have a great quilt, love the chair with quilts so the dog won't scratch the furniture, good idea.

  2. First of all, your stripe border is just what you bright quilt needed. Perfect. Second------dogs love our quilts, even though they may have their own, they love any quilt they can find. I know my Rusty does. He is the only dog I have ever seen that will not sleep on the floor, always on a quilt, on the soft, someone's lap, a dog bed----or a human bed. What a dog-----what a life!

  3. Your quilt is coming along nicely! Gotta love the pups - they always know where to find the most comfy places to sleep.
