Doggie Quilt!

Okay, I know it isn't primitive, but it is for a good cause and darn cute!  The designer is Kimberly Rado, and it is called "Dog Daze."  I am making it for a donation to the Humane Society's "Fur Ball" Auction at the American Legion next weekend!  I'm having the most fun making it, using colors I don't work with normally!  She also has  a Cat quilt. The pattern is a free download from Fons and Porter's website!  Go get it!!!!!   They call for foundation piecing, but since the pieces weren't small, I decided to do it sort of like a "Stack and Wack!"  It worked great! I might make another one to keep for a baby gift, it is so darn cute!  I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend, it sure was beautiful!

Sewing room pictures!

It's not much, but It works for me!  I was doing some sorting and organizing last weekend, and my husband put together a book case shelving unit from Wal-Mart. It isn't a really great one, but after it was assembled, put into place and filled up with things, it is not too shabby! My fabric was laying all over the chair, cutting table and floor! I had to do something once and for all! I have one more bookshelf to put together, but for now I think it will work out pretty good! Only one shelf has the fabric stacked by color, so I still have some work to do.  I just thought I would share my pictures with you!  There is also a picture of a big hook rug I made from a Wooley Fox pattern, called Tennessee Hearts! Enjoy!
