Will be quilting....

... in the next few days...
I have my hand-applique all done, my stems machine-stitched, my 3 layers sandwiched and ready to be quilted! Woohoo I'm on a roll!!! Company coming for the next 2 days, and outings to happen, so shucks... Wish I could carry on and get it done... I mean, it has only been 3 years since the start of it!!! (tongue in cheek...) 8-)
The quilt is made up of 36 - 4" finished paper-pieced blocks, will be approximately 32" square when done, and hang wonderfully on one of my walls... It will feel good to get it done! 8-)

I have old pillows that I lay on the floor in my sewing room for the fur-girls to lay on. For the last 2 days Ruby has taken to climbing all the way into the pillowcase with the pillow, making goofy noises, turn around in there and come out. Quite comical to watch I must say!!! lol! 8-)

There you go Brenda from Alberta! Photos! lol! 8-)

Well, that be it for now...
Have a good weekend everone!! 8-)

Quilt looks like it's going to be great. The dog is funny going into the pillowcase. Our little one likes sleeping buried under heavy quilts or comforters. I don't know how he can breathe under them and he does this even in hot weather. Dogs can be very amusing!

Really liking the flowers. Border applique definitely adds the final touch to a quilt.
