Can you believe it is October already! The house is all cleaned up and you really can’t tell a quilter lives here, of course that means I’m not working on anything at the movement but that will be changing as I have two quilts to make for Island Batik and a couple patterns to write.
I shared a photo of the quilt I was planning on working on the pattern for in my Sharing Quilt Projects #12 but it may have to wait as I have a special quilt pattern I want to work on first.
Would you believe that I made this baby quilt in 2017! It was for a blog hop with Island Batik when I was an ambassador for them. Look at how sweet Miss Sadie looks!
I had someone email me saying they couldn’t find a tutorial on this quilt and when I did a search I found out that I had never written it as that is when my dad came home and time was spent taking care of him before he passed.
There are several precious photos of Miss Sadie in the Oh Baby blog post and I have updated it with directions on how to make the block.
Quilt Projects shared with me
I always enjoy seeing what you have made with my tutorials and quilt patterns! Here are a couple that I think you will like.
Nikki shared this beautiful Hidden Wells quilt that she made. I love the way she added in a couple of blocks that match the border for a very modern look.
Pumpkin Table Runner
Carol-Anne shared this beautiful table runner that she made using my Pumpkin quilt block tutorial. What fun fabrics and perfect for fall!
Take a look at the beautiful quilting she did on the table runner.
I have shared in my emails that Miss Sadie hasn’t been doing well. Yesterday and last night were terrible. She can barely walk and had at least six seizures. We have decided that it is time to let her go. She is having trouble breathing and we don’t want her to suffer. She is 14 years old, has a heart murmur and bone on bone hips.
I have received many wonderful emails with suggestions on what we could do to help her and I really appreciate all of them. We have loved her for 4 wonderful years.
Miss Sadie never really accepted Mr. Mickey. He was okay as long as he stayed away from “her” Builder Bob. A photo like this was very rare and it meant that Builder Bob was gone and she was using Mr. Mickey as her ears since she was deaf. The minute he jumped up she knew Builder Bob was home.
Robin shared a couple of precious photos of her dog Deegan and shared her story of caring for this beautiful dog. Deegan no longer has the use of his back legs. He has a wheel chair and it is amazing what Robin is doing for him. What a special boy!
Another photo of Deegan, he loves to go swimming at the dog park. Robin’s email was about knowing if your dog’s quality of life is still good, Deegan’s is. Thank you Robin.
