Glad's Top Model

Glad's has a new model. Charlie.

If you've been in Glad's, you've probably seen this picture of Charlie modeling my Maggie bag. Look at his form and grace.

The bag makes a good doggie bag holder. Load it up with bags before a walk and you will never be caught unprepared.

Also if you are lucky you might find Charlie visiting the shop on his afternoon walk.

What a cutie!

Bride's-Sampler Revisited

If you are doing Sylvia's Club at Glad's, you know we are working on session 4 blocks. Once this session's blocks are done, we will be just past the half way mark.

That makes now a good time to look back and reflect. I was at a quilting get-together at Dee's house. I brought along my blocks, so we put them all out on her design wall.

Amy brought along her camera and snapped a pic for me. I'm still working on my session 4 blocks, but all the blocks through session 3 are in the picture.

If you haven't laid out all your blocks, you should. Looking at this picture every now and then is a good reminder of how great the quilt will look when it is done. Great motivation to keep going.

I'm so excited to see how this quilt is going to look when it is all done!

Sombrero Del Gato

So I wish the success of each project could be judged by Daisy. She seems to like my failed attemp at a Bali Bowl from Aunties Two.

The bowl is supposed to have upright sides. Mine ended up with more of a gentle slope. On the plus side two cats can lay on it at once.

Now I do have to say that Daisy looks great on it. Steve did a good job at picking out the Bali Pop to go with her and Pippin.

So any one have any ideas why I got a sombrero instead of a bowl? I'm wondering if it could be that my tension was off. Or that I didn't have the right touch when shaping my bowl.

Either way, the cats will have to share the one bowl, because I'm not making another one.

So a year ago, I became very enamored with three quilt kits at Glad's. They were for Mystery By Mail #43, which has now magically turned into Tapestry.

I cut up two of the kits right away. I started with this one and finally got back to it. I think it is cute. Very appropriate for the spring.

It is definitely for a lover of pink. My favorite part of the quilt is the very cool border.

The quilt has blue, green and pink. All the colors of a raspberry patch, so the name for this one is Raspberry Patchwork.

Fancy That!

Contrary to what you might think, I am not dead, but my blog is on life support.

So the pics are the finished product from Mystery Weekend 45.

The quilt is called Fancy That. The block is Fancy Contrary Wife. Isn't it a great block name?

I started out with 636 pieces after finishing cutting. The finished quilt has 30 blocks and 2387 pieces in the finished quilt.

I'm trying to think of a name. I'm think something like Fancy Frenchy. What do you think?
