Baby Boy Quilt – Puppy Love – Progress

Posted on: February 4th, 2013 by Lorna McMahon

It is hard to get anything done on the weekends… But I managed!

Last week was a short week for the kids.  They had Monday off due to weather.  Thursday was a P.A. day, which they also had off.  And Friday was another day off due to inclement weather.  The hubby also had one of those days off because of the snow.  We live out in the country and these gravel roads are always the last to be ploughed.  The skies are still dumping snow on us now, but we’ll see what tomorrow brings!

Meanwhile, I have kept up with the dishes and began the actually cutting and sewing for my latest project that I mentioned on January 31st – the Sew Fresh Quilt called Puppy Love.

Here are the puppy blocks and the object of their attention – a ball.  I scanned and cropped them.

The puppy blocks still need to be cut to 9″ square and the ball block to 6″.  And all the other blocks for the quilt – 6″ and 3″ blocks – have been cut and arranged and are ready to go for tomorrow!

Joined another linky party at Marcia’s Crafty Sewing & Quilting blog.  I am linky party crazy lately.  This stuff is all new to me, but I like going to parties that you can attend without leaving the farm!

What are you (looking forward to) working on this week?  Check out Marelize’s blog – Stitch by Stitch and join in her Anything Goes Quilt-n’-Sew linky party to share.  Hope to see you there!

    Lorna, these puppies are awesome! I really love the little black Scottie. This is going to be a beautiful quilt. I had a tough time getting to my machine this week, too. But how nice for you to be snuggled down with your whole family in the middle of a winter wonderland. Those are the days that make memories.

  4. Thanks Eunique! You are right; it is nice to spend time with the family when things are cold outside and the fire is so warm and cozy. I am blessed!
