Done But Not Shared

I finished this quilt a week ago... I know it was before September started because I needed another finish so I could actually USE more fabric. Pitiful, I know. But it did get me to do the quilting and binding quickly! A lucky friend of mine is going to get it but she doesn't know yet. I haven't decided when I'll give it to her. She may have to wait for her birthday.

Unfortunately I took the picture in the late afternoon so it is a bit dark. But you get the overall feel. I showed the quilting up close on this day.

Raggs, of course, had to come out to see what I was doing. He sure has some strange habits -- notice he's got his bottom on one step and his feet on the step below. And, he's shaggy again. He's going for a day at Bark Avenue tomorrow. Phew, just in time as he stinks like a dog! (well, he is a dog... but, ....)

I hope to have another top finished this morning. I may wait for the quilting to get done before I share it with you. It was a mystery on Mysteries for Relay, a yahoo group that Marge runs. You make a donation to cancer research through Marge's relay site and Marge provides the mystery. I've had to pass on doing some of the mysteries as I had a bunch of things piling up. I still need to finish some tops but I think I'm jumping in to do the next mystery. It's coming on September 26. If you've never tried a mystery this is a great way to get your feet wet. You can join for just one mystery or for a year of mysteries. And, if you want to get an idea of what a year of mysteries looks like visit the home page of the group. Two of my quilts are shown. Woot, Woot!

Happy Quilting All!


  1. Raggs certainly has a personality!

    The quilt is wonderful and will be appreciated by your lucky friend.

  2. Very nice! What's the name of the pattern of that one?

  3. Beautiful quilt. I'm would love to know the pattern. Couold you post it in another blog area. Looks like a stack clash and sew but all the intersections align beautifully. Please share.
