I Had Every Intention

of keeping this quilt for myself, but it turned out to be so cute that instead I personalized it for my sister in law.  I think she'll like it.

I do.  It really was not planned.  I just had a lot of leftover blocks from various quilts I've made and I wanted to use them.  I trimmed them all to 8 1/2 inches each and put them together.

The backing is a Valentine's fabric.  She is a lady who loves the hearts, so it is perfect for her.

This is a wet chicken.  YES!  We got some rain this morning.  Not a whole lot, but it was glorious!  And it has been much cooler today, just refreshing for everyone.

Except Chloe.

She really wanted to go outside.  She was not pleased that the door remained shut to her.

So she retreated to the better viewing from the bathroom window.  (I'm pretty sure I'll hear more about her displeasure later.)

Bruno goes outside all the time, so he is not terribly compassionate toward Chloe.

I do hope you're having a wonderful day.  If you haven't yet seen them, and would like a good laugh (or several) please go over the Charlotte's blog and enjoy the adventures of Mr. Pigeon.  Oh, my!

Hugs and kisses,

You are so fast! You just showed us the top a few hours ago. It really turned out great.
Glad to see a wet chicken too!

Oh I'm completely diggin' this top!!! What a great gift. You are a wonderfully giving person. Chloe is so funny. Of course she cannot go out all the time. Silly cat. I, too, feel you're sure to hear more about this especially since Bruno gets free reign to the out-of-doors world. (even tho she does have a prime lookout spot!)

Wow -- you ARE fast. What a wonderful thing to use your extra blocks and come up with a whole quilt -- I'll bet your SIL will love it!

What a beautiful quit. I love the colors and the pattern. I'm sure your sister-in-law will love the quilt. I'm so glad you got some rain. I like very much the photos of your pretty animals.

How very lovely! I know how you feel. I will work on embroidery, thinking I will keep it for myself, however, it always goes to someone else. I guess that is why we love to do what we do? give joy to others? I am sure your sister in law will treasure it! So good you got some rain. Send some to me next time..........can you? {:

Lucky sister-in-law! It's a wonderful quilt. Please send some of the rain to your neighbors to the West! We are parched in AZ!
