I love Hawaii and can't wait to get back.  This is a pattern by Pat Sloan.  It really highlights the fabric and doesn't require you to cut the fabric into small pieces.  It reminds me of my visits to my favorite island.  The back of the quilt has batiks which further the Hawaiian theme.

Teddy's Quilt

Doggies needs quilts too.  My dog Teddy loves quilts and blankets.  He loves to eat them.  So I decided to make him one that was just his.  And if he eats it then oh well at least it was his own.  I used a new pattern called disappearing nine patch.  It was so easy and fun and I can't believe I had never heard of it before.  I did not put batting in the middle because hey, why waste good batting on what may become dog food. The back of the quilt is a flannel material. So far he has slept either on it or under it every night.

Round Up

Time to post a round up of all the things I have been working on and some past projects.  First up a braided table runner. I love the pastel colors on this and the braided quilt style goes together so quickly.  This will be on my table during the spring months.

Next up is Farm Girl Vintage from Lori Holt of Bee in my Bonnet.  I had never done sampler quilting and wanted to make one of each block in her book.  I could get lost in all the different blocks, colors, and shapes. I love this one to pieces and won't let anyone use it.

I attended Road 2 California for the first time last month and saw this adorable Jiffy Casserole Cover Kit.  I don't make casseroles but who cares. It was too cute to pass up and I can carry hot or cold item in it.  

Lastly I have started my first Block of the Month quilts with Pat Sloan Quilt Along.  The first one is called Let's Go Camping
The second is called In the Summer Time.  I love getting the pattern each week and then feeling the rush of excitement to see how the block turns out.
