Dont Faint.. another post in the SAME weekend

Yes petals.. I've been one busy possum this weekend.. first finish was the 'tumbler quilt' (see previous post) I am happy with how it turned out, still debating about borders on it.. a good press made it about two inches wider, so hmmm dunno..



BUT I have been working on my "Worlds Fair" quilt.. this sucker has used up so much fabric, I am even surprised.. I have done about 132 blocks so far and I keep putting the 4 patches in around the wrong way.. which isn't a biggie, I can make them the right way, but sheesh, too much brain power being used.. And yes, I know one blocks is around the wrong way (doh @ Lissa) but its not joined, I just laid it out wrong and am way too lazy to take another pic to show off..

Of course, once the blocks were on the floor, the quilt inspector had to come and put his furry butt right in the middle.. and you'll agree with me, he does look super evil in this photo with his eyes shining.. yikes, scares me! Cosmo aka the bastard cat will be 2 on the 10/10 the kids have been wondering what we are going to buy him..


Thought I'd leave you with a pic of the birthday girl wearing her new collar.. doesn't she just look soooo happy?? might have something to do with a tough dog (in a polka dot collar no less) sitting on a cat scratching post??? Bailey the Wonderdog prolly wonders why she is outside and the bastard cat is inside... please ignore the long grass in the pic, poor ol' Dags every time he goes to mow it rains, he needs to go somewhere where they NEED rain, cause we sure dont here..



well on that happy note, off to do some ironing otherwise I'll be off to work all wrinkly...


bye possums..

You know, if you keep showing these awesome quilts (with fabrics that I *love* - and many similar fabrics reside in my stash) I may have to go start something new...

I love the stage when you can lay the quilt out on the floor and see what it is exactly going to look like!

Lissa, Thanks for stoppin by my new blog, and thanks for your comments. Just checkin out your site, and boy am I liking those quilts you do. The scrappy quilts to me are the original way that quilts were done. They are my favorite too. I'll be back often, I like your sense of humor. Thanks again.

Send that darn rain this way!!! I've told you time and time again, bag it and send it here!
The kids found a green patch of grass here and are confused! Isn't grass yellow and dry????

Your quilts are amazin! Love your pup - I have 3 of my own. Thanks for stopping by my blog, and good luck in the vintage button giveaway!

Catherine said...

I love your quilt!! And, of course, a kitty inspector with yellow eyes is par for the course. How can one possibly make a quilt without a cat?

Megan said...

GORGEOUS quilt! Absolutely gorgeous. I cannot sew worth a fig - by hand or on a machine, so I'm doubly impressed!
