Such great work! What a lovely idea. Kisses Chris
I love your blocks, Chris. And like the way you turn the inside ones around. It will look unbelievably beautiful when all is done. Such great work!
Your machine will be humming for quite a while before you finish them all. Happy stitching!
Thanks Martine, yes, when I have a couple of hours spare I sit down and do them. Love Chris
Love your blocks!!!So beautiful!!
Thanks so much for your comments, love Chris
Wow, those are beautiful!! The little dog is adorable.
Thanks Pam, she is a real little cutie, jumps like a lamb! Also thanks for the comments about the squares. Love Chris
Nice work and love the puppy!
Thanks so much Kay, and yes Lily is lovely. Love Chris
Lovely blocks. Hugs
Thanks Shirley, love Chris
Fabulous square! And a puppy too! This looks like it will be a great quilted bed for the snowball! Somehow my dogs always find the best quilt to lay on. Did you do this square all in one hooping? Or did you do it in parts?
Hi Penny, the dog isn't mine, it's my mothers, so it won't ever be on my bed.
This square and all the other ones have all been made in one hoop. Some take nearly 3 hours to sew out, but these ones are about 2 hours to stitch out! Love Chris
Oh gosh! You could babysit the the puppy and then it could be on your bed too!!! Three hours is a really long time, but well worth the result!
Oh Chris the squares are beautiful. I love the puppy. I have a ittle yorkie and she is loads of company. You'll need a vacation soon. Hope all is well there. hugs Ronny
Hi Ronny, so lovely to see you back on here. I do hope things are getting better for you.
Re the vacation, we've just come back from Canada and Alaska 3 weeks ago. It was awesome. If you go back through my posts you can see some of my pictures.
We are well and will be back to 'normal' next week as school goes back. The kids have been on 2 weeks holidays and we've been babysitting them a lot. Love Chris
Your squares are absolutely beautiful. I can just imagine the finished quilt.
Love the puppy
Thanks Angie, I hope it will be beautiful. Love Chris
Two more down...and counting...love these and what a cute puppy!
Thanks Kim, these take so long to do, so I don't want to overwork my machine. I'm just trying to grab any spare time I can but next week school goes back, thankfully. Yes, the puppy is gorgeous. Love Chris
Ooh, these continue to be lovely surprises. You are going to have such a beautiful quilt and I think the memories of caring for the children at these ages and stages will be stitched right in with your stitches. You must be excited about the quilt by now, as it begins to show itself. My friend who quilts all the time and has two quilt groups that quilt at her house took a two door closet and built shelves in it just for fabric. Then she took the two doors and covered them with batting and then cotton (staple gun I think). No door knobs, just touch and open magnets. As the quilt parts get stitched out, she can pin the squares on her "quilt board" and begin to see it appear and make adjustments in the arrangement and color placement. (Just passing this last bit on for all, not expecting you to renovate further!)
I can't wait to finish the square and get it together. I then send it to a professional quilter.
That cupboard sounds fascinating Betsey and I'd love to see a picture of it. Love Chris
Can't wait to see it all done......these are incredible designs......loving mum's new pup, so cute!!!
Thanks Vicki, sorry I didn't get to answer - I've been very busy with Amy and the girls. Love Chris
