WIP and Whipped!



Well, for now, Blogger is playing nice! But I want you to know that I do have fingers, toes, legs, and eyes crossed! Thank you, Patty, Libby and Paula for your input on the photo situation. I haven't been doing anything different than usual but for some bizarre reason could not get photos to upload. I had a couple more but was not going to press my luck LOL! I am wondering if it makes a difference what time of day one tries to post pix. Seems that later in the day works better. I knew I was whipped this morning when, after about eleventy-twenty times, I was getting nowhere! Ah, well, at least the price is right for this service, huh! The Broken Dishes baby quilt and backing are ready to be sandwiched, pinned and machine quilted. I know, I know, Rocky should not be allowed on this quilt, but I will launder it after the quilting. And I am sure the recipient will wash it again. Rocky, being the alpha male and all, pretty much lays wherever he pleases! Now if I can just get DH to move all HIS tax stuff off MY long tables in the basement, I can get this basted. Well, I guess it is my tax stuff, too, come to think of it. The colors in the pieced backing look a little softer in real life. I think the lighting was not as good as it should have been. Maybe some day I'll get this photo/internet/blogging thing all figured out! But just in case, I'm keeping my fingers, toes, legs and eyes crossed!!!

My mom used to tell me my eyes would stick that way if I crossed them - be careful *s* The baby quilt is so sweet. I love that it's nice and soft looking without screaming 'baby'

My mom always told me the same thing as Libby's about my eyes sticking...as a matter of fact she just told me again today :) The baby quilt is just precious....and a quilt that the baby can use for a very long time.

Glad you were able to upload the pictures - what a pretty baby quilt! I love the broken dishes block - I had so much fun making mine.

Oh don't you know that keeping a cat off a quilt is like trying to keep a baby awake? Darned near impossible, LOL.

Rocky has really made himself comfortable and probably thought you laid that out just for him.

What sweet colors on the quilt!

Bonnie said...

Such a pretty baby quilt. The colors are so pleasing to the eye. The cat looks very comfortable - and the whole picture looks like a very cool painting for a greeting card!

I absolutely love the Broken Dishes quilt...and Rocky, the quilt decoration! My Jake loves sleeping on any quilt I'm working on!

I love the baby quilt. I've got to get busy and make one. What are the sizesof the squares made from the half-square trianlges?

Kim said...

Oh cats! Don't you know they think all quilts are made for them?! LOL! Sometimes mine come and lay on the quilts as I'm in the middle of quilting them--makes it hard to move on free motion quilting! And they sure seem to think they have to "test" every new one, in every stage of construction, just to make sure it's suitable. Love the colors in your baby quilt!

Dawn said...

Oh it looks wonderful! I really like it!

I love the colors of your broken dishes. Don't you just love a pieced back? Much more personality.

Holly said...

Very pretty broken dishes. I love the colors.

All my quilts have a little kitty love (fur) in them! Yes, I will wash the gift quilt if needed... =)

Yhe quilt is beautiful. It looks so soft and inviting. The cat certainly looks comfortable on it.

Lisa said...

The baby quilt is really pretty and and I'm sure it will be very well received. We call our cat the quality control inspector because trying to keep her off quilts is nearly impossible. I swear she stalks around the house looking to see if there is any new soft thing she can sleep on.
