Lap quilt for dog and donation quilt

Here a couple of projects that I have finished this week. One is a quilt for Suzie – or rather Ted. It is one of the old Roman shades I took down and has been made into a lap quilt for the dog. Ted likes these quilts so the dog hairs don’t get on his clothes when that 50 lb dog sits on his lap. I like these quilts because it gives me an opportunity to practice, practice, practice as well as try out different threads.

The second picture is a comfort quilt for donation. I used Patricia Ritter’s Mimosa pantograph on it. I like the way it turned out. It was pieced using a flip and sew method on a foundation square.

My blog is about helping other quilters learn to use great tools in their quilting through what I can teach and through finding other bloggers who have good information. In addition, I am a mother and grandmother. Other hobbies include any other stitchery which makes me happy at the moment. I worked in clinical research for most of my career. I am now retired and enjoying every minute.
