I have no idea why I haven’t done a Sharing Quilt Projects post in so long! I have all kinds of photos of quilt projects that many of you have sent me and also your pets. For some reason, I only have dogs to share in this post but I would love to see your other pets!

My Quilting

I’m getting back into the swing of things after our move. I even finished 3 different quilts last week and I’ll be sharing one of them soon. It feels good to get quilting again! Mr. Mickey is sitting on the pieces leftover from trimming the finished quilt. The backing fabric actually belonged to my mom from when she did craft shows so it is an oldie!

Our new deck!

Bob has turned into Builder Bob again and is building us a new deck! It is 16′ x 16′ and will be perfect! The steps were put on today and now it is time to start on the handrails. Our last deck was composite but we decided to go back to wood. One of the reasons was cost.

I have no idea what I’m doing but I look happy! We have to keep Mr. Mickey on a leash as he doesn’t seem to realize how far off the ground we are.

Quilt Projects Shared With Me

It is always so much fun to see all of the beautiful quilt projects that you are making! I have all kinds of beautiful quilt projects to share with you this time and I’m sure you’ll find something you can’t wait to make!

Box Quilt Block Pillow

Pillows are always a fun quilt project to make! Deb shared her beautiful piece which will be a Box quilt block pillow and then she used the leftover pieces to make a precious trinket box!

River Scraps

Sharon shared the beautiful baby quilt that she made for her 3-year-old grandson. She also put flannel on the back which makes a soft quilt. The River Scraps quilt is a great way to use up your scraps.

QAYG Placemats

Julia made a set of beautiful quilt-as-you-go (QAYG) placemats. They are always fun to make!

I always enjoy seeing someone make my Scattered quilt. Ruth did something really neat! I’ll let her tell you what she did.

I made it using many different fabrics of our collage alma mater( Michigan State).  I thought it would make  a great quilt for a guy and did it for my husband for Christmas. I know nearly every school has fabric with their colors, mascots ,etc and thought someone else might like this idea.

Rainbow Rail Fence

Carrie created this beautiful quilt using a panel and my Rainbow Rail Fence quilt block. She made this for a customer and added some sashing to get all the blocks to fit around the center!

Sharing Pets

I love seeing photos of other quilter’s pets!

Miss Buffington

Jeanette sent this sweet photo of Miss Buffington who is 15 years old. She has a heart murmur but fortunately doesn’t have to take meds for it.

Carol-Anne sent a photo of Ghost, what a perfect name! It is cold in Australia now so he likes to sit by the heater.

Deuce is Diana’s sweet little companion, he likes to lay by her when she quilts and follows her everywhere.

    So glad Mr. Mickey is feeling better!
    Also, I was so pleased to see one of your great projects using Michigan State University fabric. It brought back so many memories of the years my hubby and I spent as undergraduate and graduate students there in the 1960s. How long ago was that?! I also love seeing the progress on your new home. I know you will enjoy it for years to come.

  6. Love the sharing! My daughter went to Mich. also! And the Rainbow and the River quilts are so colorful and all are so beautifully done! Thanks for bringing the Community of Quilters together! And the PUPPERS – our faithful helpers!
