Catching Up With the Quilts, 8-17-22

Thanks to all who sent quilt pictures to my email! On with the quilt show!


I played for a funeral today and then Jenny and Becky came for a visit before Jenny goes back to Louisville. Hazel was a happy pup!

    Lovely pictures! I love the little dog whose ears are always standing up. They are both cuties. Hugs,

    Great to see the quilting pieces! Thanks for showing, Mary!
    Pups are growing as is the corn in background!
    Another great grand baby was announced online today….family keeps growing! Always good news!

    Hazel does love her “Aunt Becky”.
    Great quilt show today. Thanks to all for sharing.
    I get a kick out of seeing the puppies sitting on their butts. Some day they will figure out how to sit on their back legs. Such bright eyes.
    Did your stitching issue get adjusted? Can I order Good News pattern when I order your new book? I love that pattern.

    Thanks for the great quilt show, Mary. Carla T., I never thought of making a “fuzzy” bear like that. Great idea:) Those puppies are getting so BIG. And, Hazel is still adorable. She does love her Aunt Becky!!
    We had our daughter’s surprise 50th birthday party today. It was really fun and she was surprised:)

    Congrats on your new great-grandbaby, Launa!
    Thanks for the lovely quilt show, Mary. I especially like the patchwork teddy bear—so cute and snuggly.
    I loved seeing the dogs and your guests. It was a beautiful day. 🥰

    Thank you for sharing reader quilts. They’re all beautiful. Hazel is just squirming with joy – her Aunt Becky came to visit her.😁. Your two foster dogs are adorable with their “radar” ears. Have a great weekend!

    I love it when I see so much variety in your readers creations. Thank you Mary for continuing to brighten our days seeing these.
    Hazel never forgets Aunt Becky! It’s so cute seeing that love and I bet those twin pups could give just as many licks.

    Love the quilts today, the darling bear, and the embroidered towel. Good show today.
    Those ears!! If they grow into their ears, they will be good-sized dogs.
    Happy Hazel. Aways adorable.

    I like the embroidered saying. And the quilts today are great as usual. The patchwork bear looks comfy in his chair.
    The puppies ears are something aren’t they. They look like happy puppies with room to move and play. Hazel is quite the character.
    We’re headed into cooler weather finally! And the possibility of rain! Yippee!

    Such lovely quilts and that adorable bear is so cute!! Such talented ladies!! I miss quilting as I have had to do many repairs on our home and and I am using my resources to care for my husband with Parkinson’s and my daughter with brain cancer. I so appreciate seeing your achievements dear friends as I have become so homebound. Your pictures just bring joy to my heart and remind me that in the future I too will be able to share my quilting successes and that my “creative” side is not dead but at rest. Thank you to all who send their pictures in! Love to all Carolyn Barnett

      Carolyn – sounds like you have more than your share to deal with right now! Please keep us updated – we’ll all say a little prayer for strength – you’re going to need it.

      Carolyn – Thank you for the lovely way you have of putting things in perspective. I, too, find that Mary’s pictures and all the reader comments are a friendly window on the world when circumstances find us at home. Prayers being said for you and yours.

      Mary – Those puppies are avoiding looking you in the eye. What have they been into now?
      I can feel Hazel’s happy wiggles in Becky’s arms! Safe home, Jenny.

      Bees, bears, T’s, and angels, snuggle quilts for little ones.
      Pictures of pets bring on a smile and pink pillow dreams when day is done.

      Thanks everyone!
