I didn’t realize he got laid off. Bummer.

The elephant quilt is a Donna’s, and her second one!  It is adorable!

Here is the house block I made for a friend who is moving to Iowa.  There are several of us at quilt guild who are contributing blocks.  Her favorite color is purple and she loves cats.  Many thanks to Suze and Cris for sending me some kitty fabric,  Just to be ornery, I included a dog lounging in the grass (and she does like dogs, just doesn't have any).  The cats are keeping their eyes on the dog!  I used Steam a Seam 2 to fuse the appliques onto the block and decorated it with thread painting.  I'm pleased with the results and hope she will get a chuckle whenever she looks at it.  The thread painting doesn't show up very well. Bummer.

Thanks Suze!  And thank you for your contribution.  Plus I have several pieces your cat fabric that I can use for kids' quilts.

Your block has a lot of character and should be a wonderful reminder to your friend of her time in MD.


What a fun block. I am sure she will love it.

Is that a basket of freshly-laundered quilt fabric next to the dog?  You created a terrific story block  for your friend to remind her of her happy days in Maryland  and of your quilting group that had one dog-lover. 

You really let your creative juices flow with this one, Marcia.

Very fun quilt block and GOOD call with including a dog!  LOL!

Again, you are most entirely welcome for the cat fabric.
