A little work on my own projects

This weekend I decided to work on my own project. I don't piece quilts, but I love pieced backgrounds. So I decided I would like a pieced diamond background for some applique. Well, diamonds, are a pain!! At any rate I persisted, and pieced this 56x56 background of diamonds. It is "sky and water" so maybe one of those Mariners' compass blocks will come to live here! Ok, I've done that now...on to the next thing!

And of course you have to see the new fur baby pictures! They were quite cute today, though not a lot of help piecing those Chloe is bathing Harry...she is sooo sweet to him!
And here...have you ever seen a more relaxed boy??

And then Chloe is improving the look of one of Mom's quilts!

So I had a weekend and a day to goof off! Guess tomorrow I'll get back to customer quilts.
Have a good night!


  1. You have the frogs hanging up - where? I don't recognize the spot.

    I like the diamonds - I'm waiting to see how this one develops.

  2. Love the frogs and diamonds.

    I designed a quilt that I call Maritime and it is like what you have planed for your quilt. Here is the link to my posting about Maritime.

    For now Maritime is on my design wall. I will get back to it this winter. I am not sure what I will be doing next. I know I need to add something to the compass block and water.

    The fur babies are so cute!

  3. I'm so not fond of piecing either... frustrates me? Except for PPing... I love to fling fabric! LOL
    Pretty kitties... I'm not a catlover, but yours are sure pretty:)

  4. Pretty colors, can't wait to see what becomes of it.....

  5. So Deb.... pondered this all night... you piece quilts to applique on top of them? needleturn? trll me more and give my brain a break K? LOL

  6. A true Ragdoll! I see that pose several times a day, every day of my life!! Flat on the floor belly up!!
