Summer is over

 
quilting had taken a back burner this summer, which is unusual for me, but I got us a new Champ!! Introducing Cheech a 9yr old Chihuahua that was at the Durham Humane Society for 2 years, he came from an abusive home and has some issues that are slowly melting away. He has captured my heart and is slowly melting my husbands. I will tell you more but wanted you to know what was taking up my time.

I did go to a quilting retreat with the Rouge Valley Quilters Guild and this is the project I decided to bring. Rosemarie and Mary of  We Three Quilters did another swap but with 9in Blocks of Reds and white off whites, we found this pattern on Bonnie Hunters site (Majestic mountains) and this is what I pieced on the weekend. I have since then completely changed the layout this was just on the floor beside me as I was going along...
Well glad to be back into quilting I will have much more to show you later, but warning you are going to hear some Cheech stories too.

  1. Cheech is so cute! I think he likes posing for the camera. I love your majestic mountains, but I think I like the other layout better. I took a photo of it at our retreat, when only a few blocks were on the floor. Do you want me to send it to you?

  3. I'm not much on little dogs but certainly that is one lucky fellow to get another chance at a loving home. It took us ten years of work to help Nikko over the issues she came with after only three months of abuse and neglect... and I know she will never warm up to smokers.
    The blocks look like a lot of fun to work with.

  4. So wonderful of you to take an older dog. My kitty is from the animal shelter, but was just 2 when we got her. Also had not had a happy start. She's terrific with us now, but still doesn't like a lot of noise so hides under the bed when company comes. I'm looking forward to more photos of Cheech.....great name. Love you quilt top.
