I’ll bet you guys thought I forgot you yesterday, didn’t you? Well, I didn’t but since I did not have any dogs here boarding, I took the day off and went thrift shopping. After about a week or 10 days of just being home and taking care of everybody, I need a little day trip. My dogs usually go along so I don’t go very far – about 4-5 hours worth and then it’s back home. When I got home, a couple girlfriends came and after a couple beers with them Rick got home, and then there was basketball to watch. Whew!
Today’s quilt is called Dixie and it’s smaller, 40″ x 40″, one of those great sizes to make because it isn’t necessary to piece the backing. Three simple units are used in this quilt – 4 patches, hourglass units, and triangle squares. When you make other projects and have simple units such as these leftover, you do save them, don’t you? Just think – this quilt might be waiting to be assembled just using units from previous projects. Many different fabrics make for an interesting quilt.
After I took this picture I backed up and took the whole picture – dog beds and all so you know how it really is at our house. The door to the upstairs is standing wide open and dog toys are just outside of the frame. We live in a very casual house because of the animals. It is so very easy to live in!
Have a great weekend, everybody!!
