    Wow, I missed a ton of DQ's, I've been off sewing. Had to go back a few pages. Gorgeous. Quilty louise, beautiful quilt. I love all the fun stitches. Lv2sew, Love the design. Is that reverse applique. I really want to try that. I saw it demostrated at the quilt show. But, I think I'm going to have to look up a tutorial on it to refresh my memory. I love all the summery' quilts. And the little vase with the kitties playing is too cute. That would be perfect in my house. We have three cats in our house who are always knocking over something and breaking it.(2 of them are hugh!)

    I received my DQ from Luv2sew today, it is beautiful!!!!!

    When I opened the package my 3 y/o took the quilt away from me and said "oh, thank you , Mommy!" He then went on to tell me all about the picture and about his Sassycat and Jakecat (the two cats look just like our two cats!). He then brought it over to the couch, crawled under it and said he was going to sleep ...that lasted about 2 minutes

    The quilt is just gorgeous, I love all of the details and all of the stitching! Thank you sooooo much! I think this will be going in my son's room

    You are welcome! I am so glad you like it! I have been wanting to try reverse applique for awhile and this project seemed perfect for it!

    These flip flops on the back are just too cute! She also sent a starfish mug rug, a flip flop with nail stuff inside, and two hand made neck coolers! Those will be handy over the next few 100 degree days!

    Thanks Sue - you are a wonderful partner. I hope they deliver your squishy soon.

    Gonna be hard for me to come close to that awesomeness.

    I am going to have to make 2 posts in order to show all the pictures
    of the great quilt and other goodies I received.

    I love the quilt too!
    My husband has bird feeders to amuse the cat! Don't be alarmed, the cat is de-clawed, it was my intention for her to be in-door only, she is also is definitely not a hunter. She watches and tries very hard but has not captured a bird in two years, or ever for that matter.

    i've had 2 cocker spaniels who would jump up and catch swooping birds. the 2 i have now do not, and i'm glad. but one does catch rabbits. a sad but sweet story-- when our old cat, mel was very old and lived upstairs , his 'brother' simon once brought him a present of half a rabbit. simon left it next to mel's feed bowl. simon didn't try to eat it, it was very much meant for mel. i've never had another cat do that. mel lived to 21 and was getting close to 22 when he passed on.

    Well, I think it is obvious that darling quilt was made for your 3 year old. How could you resist his love for it? Hope you are able to snap a photo of him under the little quilt and post it.

    Sounds like it spoke to his little precious heart!!!

    What gorgeous quilts! I love cardinals so much. We have a cardinal couple who live in our backyard. They are usually very shy so it's a treat to see them. I almost don't mind when they gorge themselves on my grapes.

    NinaLemon, hearing about your son and the quilt was so heart warming. What a joy little boys are! That quilt is so charming. No wonder he loved it.

    The applique technique is new to me too. Still learning.

    Louise, I keep praying for a good long rainstorm in your area. I can't believe how big that awful fire has grown. Be safe!

    I want to post pictures of the gorgeous quilt Lynnie25 sent me! I am such a happy camper! She took the traditional "storm at sea" pattern, and turned it into this stunning flower quilt! She used yummy batiks and did such a fantastic job. I found another great friend this month! Thank you again Lyn!

    The second picture is a closeup of the quilt with the more true colors, and the last picture shows the back with her cute label and a wonderful sachet of lavender, which comes from a place just 3 hrs away from her. Sounds like a great place to visit!

    K,

    Thank you, there are about 13-15 fires burning in CO right now
    with one of them expected to be 100% contained by this weekend.

    So far the Waldo Canyon fire in the Springs area is the most property
    destructive fire in CO history as of last night it had burned 346 home
    it is LITERALLY wiping out complete subdivisions of homes. They was
    showing an aerial view of some of the neighborhoods and it was just
    sad to see 43+ homes burned to the foundations while leaving some
    houses untouched in 1 neighborhood they showed there was 8 houses
    (not all next to each other) still standing but the houses on either side
    of them was gone.

    Here is a link to some aerial photos of the fire area. More info about
    Waldo Canyon can be found also if interested National news doesn't always
    give a "full" impact of the situation.

    Both my MIL and FIL houses are still in danger. My MIL is on "stand-by"
    notice (stage before pre-evac), while my FIL is on pre-evac notice. My
    hubs and I are also on pre-notice to jump and run (drive) down to assist
    if needed.

    Lyn, what a beauty! Such a creative twist on the Storm at Sea. Love it. Lucky you, Ronda!

    Louise, what a nerve wracking situation. The smoke must be awful for so many, not to mention the loss of homes. I'm so sorry you have to deal with this awful calamity.
