Friday Fun

This is another finish of sorts.  I hope to have the quilt top completely pieced as well as the backing done tomorrow.  This quilt is for my dear husband.  He loved the Winter's Stars quilt that I made with Kate & Birdie Paper Co.'s Winter's Lane.  Didn't want to give it away.  So I promised I would make a quilt for him.

When I saw Kate & Birdie Paper Co.'s Bluebird Park, I knew that was the fabric for his quilt.  We have a bluebird house in our backyard.  Every year, our bluebirds come and raise one or two clutches of eggs.  My husband is diligent in keeping them fed with mealworms.  I love the owls and hedgehogs on the fabric!

As you can see, I still have some work to do.   I used 3 charm packs and 1 1/2 yards of the fabric for the background.  There will be two borders added.  The X's and O's pattern is fairly quick and easy.  I have an X's and O's edge to edge quilting pattern that I will quilt it with.  Perfect for my husband!
I have another quilt to cut out and piece this weekend, too.  It is a special quilt for a wonderful person and friend.  More later.
What my doggies do while I sew!  Linking up with Finish it up Friday Crazy Mom Quilts.  Happy Friday!


  1. I love the quilt! My three dogs are usually in similar positions. I am visiting from Crazy Mom Quilts. I really like your quilting style and added your blog as a link on mine. Thanks for sharing!

  2. Cute doggies all in a row! lol We have a boxer too,they are the sweetest!

  3. The quilt is looking fantastic, cool choice of fabrics and your dogs are looking very comfortable there on the couch! Cheers, Jenny

  4. Lovely quilt! Love the dogs picture...)

  5. I'm sure your husband will love it! I made my husband a quilt a few years ago and let him pick out the fabric -- he ended up with skulls, flames, and an assortment of other things.. But he likes it and that's all that matters. Also, I love the combination of greens, oranges, and yellows -- it reminds me of a hexi quilt I am handpiecing and need to get back to.

  6. Love the quilt and the puppies. Looks like my sewing room when my three pups are napping :-)
