This happy quilt got finished last night and took a turn in the washer. Today, it went through the dryer and outside for its portrait. It is really bright, but I like bright, and that's a good thing since it will live here.
The backing is this flannel plaid.
And here it is in place in the den. (Notice the dog toys on the floor.)
And yes, they immediately had to try it to be sure it would work. I think it met their approval. There are three dogs and two cats who live in our house It's a matter of self defense to keep as much of the upholstered furniture as possible covered with quilts. When those quilts are bright and happy - that's just a bonus!
Little views around Muddle Manor. The cat on the chicken rooftop lives (supposedly) next door. He likes it here, too.
I have started a new little garden on the kitchen side of the house. I can see it while I'm at the sink. Doesn't make me like washing dishes any better, but it is pretty anyway. Mr. Muddling fenced off that side so no marauding chickens or dogs allowed. I'm hoping to get lots more done out there before the real heat of Summer gets here.
I bought an Orange Peel die for the Go! cutter a while back and cut out these retro chintz petals. I zig zagged them onto 5 inch squares of solid fabric and sewed them together. The plan (as I laughingly call it) here is to quilt it on the sewing machine for a wall hanging.
Behind it is yet another project I've begun. You know how it is. There is a never-ending supply of quilts in my head trying to get out!
The weather here is beautiful. I hope you're having some pretty weather where you are, too. Have a great weekend and enjoy yourself!
Hugs and kisses,
