FQS Quiltalong

It was great to be included in a new Quiltalong sponsored by the Fat Quarter Shop. This is my third Quiltalong with them, and this pattern just might be my favorite.  It is called Fat Eighth Fruitcake Quilt and is a part of their Shortcut Series.

I was gifted with a generous gift certificate from the FQS, and I purchased these great fabrics (Laundry Basket by Edyta Sitar) for my quilt...

And I added these four from my stash...

Everything is cut out and ready to go...

Once again, I failed to finish the TAW.... I was almost there, but then I had a section that rippled and needed to be removed and corrected.......Ughhhhhhh. This quilt is a true example of why you should not make UFOs. Our stitching and rotary cutting abilities change as we gain in experience, which was the case with this quilt.

The left side is completed and is all good...the right side is not.

I made a fateful trip to the shelter three weeks ago to help my friend choose a kitten and came home with this....

Yes, this sweet little boy was picked up as a stray. No chip or collar and no one had called searching for him. He is housebroken and has lovely manners...and so sweet. Can you tell that I am smitten with little Casper ??

Sara Ashley celebrated her seventeenth birthday!!

Was asked to the Homecoming Dance...

And inducted into the National Honor Society...

Did I mention how proud I am of her???

Take Care,


  1. That will probably be my favorite quilt of yours too. I LOVE blues. Oh my, it wouldn't be good for me to go to a shelter because I'd come home with all of them probably. Casper looks like such a sweet pup! I know he will be very happy there.

  2. Edyta's fabric lines are always something that interest me. I have one of her kits in blues waiting on the sidelines. I don't even remember which quilt design it is.

  3. Casper is adorable. Thanks for rescuing him:)
    Such beautiful grands. You are blessed.

  4. Casper is so lucky for the wonderful life he's going to have with you...thank you so much for adopting...love you blue quilt blocks...nothing compares to a scrappy quilt...


  5. Thanks for some other magnificent post. Where else could anyone get that type of information in such an ideal means of writing? I have a presentation subsequent week, and I am at the look for such information.

  6. Casper looks and sounds like the sweetest little dog! So sad that no one was looking to find him but great that he's getting a good home where he will be appreciated.
