This is the latest in the Quilts Beyond Borders. There are some really cute jungle-type fabrics in here that I think a child would love. I need to move on to other projects, but it's just so much fun to make these small-ish quilts! I had a limited amount of these blocks, so made it big enough with added borders. There is a row of piano key blocks for one of the borders. I looked and looked for the perfect green for the outer border and ended up with Kaffe Fassett's "Plink". (Of course then I had to put up all the other fabrics I had pulled out of the stash!)
Here is the backing. I sort of continued the jungle theme here.
I had some leftover half square triangles that I had trimmed from blocks in this quilt. So, I squared them up and put them in two lines along each side in one of the borders. Actually, some of the blocks are also leftovers from that same quilt. I found that I had more of the fabric, so cut it into squares and made it work. Love that! I do hate waste.
And this is Dinah. She came home with us on Sunday. A lady at our church had kittens and Miss Ru decided it was time for her to have a new kitten. This is one super cute little girl. She is not taking any nonsense from any of the dogs and has Ruthie completely in her little tiny paws! So far Chloe is ignoring her presence, but I don't foresee any problems there either.
I can feel Autumn trying to ease itself into our neighborhood. I just wish it would get here! I'm tired of the heat of Summer and ready to go outside and play again. In Houston, we hibernate in the Summer.
I do hope you are having a wonderful week and finding plenty to keep you busy and make you happy!
Hugs and kisses,
