I hope I answer most of peoples questions, but I"ll probably forget some! Everything is so busy lately! A lot of people asked about my dog quilt I made and who the pattern was by. Well - a lot of people! I collected pieced dog patterns for 2 years and then just made blocks. When I had "a bunch" I laid them out and pieced background to make them fit! A lot of them are Debbie Mumm and Country Thread patterns. And a few I think I found in magazines at the time.
As for that sweet little doggie Chloe! As of today she will be ours! I'm so excited and I didn't think I would be. Chloe lives a bit aways from us, but is coming down near us the weekend before the 4th of July - so we are going to pick her up July 1st. In the meantime the foster mom is going to get her spayed for me (I'll pay for it) so that one of the first things I don't have to do is take her in. I felt so bad if Emily finally gets her dog and then I have to take her to the vet overnight and she comes home sore and drugged up! So Sarah (the foster mom) is going to take her in for me next week. Needless to say I'm busy getting ready for our new addition!
And tomorrow I head down to Purdue to sign Adam up for classes. I think he finally is going to go! I'm so glad about that! I keep telling myself - baby steps!
In the spirit of the season I'm sharing some more patriotic quilts I've made. The top one is one I made as a sample for a BOM I designed for a local shop. It is called 12 American Women and each block had to do with a famous American Woman. I gave a little history about the lady and the block instructions. I love how this one turned out!
