Quilt Top Finish

I have finished my future niece's quilt top. I purchased everything in a kit but as you will see, I have added my own interpretation to it. I love these colors! Very bright!

This is what theirs looks like.

And here is mine. I moved the blue squares up just a little.

And I added a small border. I just love stripey borders!

This is my first time to do mitered corners! I am so proud of how they turned out! It took a little while to figure out what I was doing but then it was super easy.


Isn't that sweet? The puppies are starting to open thier eyes now so it won't be long before they are running all over the place looking for things to get into. I will get some photos of them soon.

This is my progress on a baby sampler for my coming soon niece. It's Jungle Baby designed by Diane Arthurs. Oh, of course, I am changing some of the colors. Most of you know by now that I can't resist changing something on just about everything I make. ;-)

I have made decent progress on a baby quilt as well. I don't have the backing fabric yet so there's another shopping trip I need to make. Photos coming as soon as I finish the quilt top which will be soon.

Bonnie's Puppies

We have 5 puppies. 2 girls and 3 boys. Their temporary names are Rose, Morgan, Max, Buster, and Peter. I let my little cousins name them. I should be getting some better photos of them when they get a little older.

Bonnie Blue

We rescued another Basset about a week ago. We found her nearly starved. You could clearly see the outline of her ribs and backbone. She also had a bone caught in the roof of her mouth and it was really wedged in there tight. The vet had to remove the bone and she said that it had been there for a very long time. We also found out that she is pregnant and has heartwoms pretty bad. We can't treat her for the heartworms till after she has the puppies and is no longer nursing.

You can't really tell how skinny she is in this photo because of the way she is sitting.

This is her after a week of being fed and taken care of. She is starting to fill out more, although you can still see her ribs and backbone but not as much as before.

Here's her close up. She is a really sweet girl. We don't know what her puppies are going to look like or how healthy they will be but we should be finding out soon enough.
