Stars and Spools Finish

I finally finished up the binding on the Stars and Spools quilt. This is just something that I made up as I went along, and I enjoyed working with the reproduction era fabrics or ones that seemed to mimic that color scheme and look. All of the applique and hexies and quilting was done by hand.

Quilting continues here and there on the Scrappy Granny quilt…I took a photo when the morning sunlight was streaming in.

Then this has nothing to do with quilting but I got a good laugh. I put these plastic nubby protectors on the furniture at night or when I am going to be out for awhile.

My sons dog just made his own arrangement to avoid the protector and still be up there! My dog Lily is on the floor in the corner thinking what a bad boy Koopa is to not play by the rules :)

  21. I must have gotten behind on reading your blog recently, because I didn’t know about everything that has happened in your family this month, and I’m so sorry, Deb. I hope being able to get back to some stitching, as well as the antics of your animals, has broought some comfort.

    Beautiful finish! It reminds me of some of Gwen Marston’s quilts…she figures out what to do next as she goes along too. My SIL’s dog likes to sleep on the couch too, but he throws all the pillows on the floor first!

  26. What a beautiful quilt. I love the colors. I can’t believe you just made it up as you went along. And all the quilting work is beautiful, too. Funny dog. They love to have their favorite sleeping places. My cat waits until I make the bed for her!
