    Great sister. I have about 3 yards of the one with the framed dogs. I'm going to make a raffle quilt for the Humane Society for next year.

    What a sweet and thoughtful sister you have!!

    Can you tell me if the fabric in the lower left corner of the top picture is Kansas Troubles Quilters? It looks like it may be, but I have not seen that one before. Any info would be appreciated. Thanks

    Yes, Marcia. It is Kansas Trouble. You have a keen eye.

    The two that are "related" I may use in something soon. Dark tan and green backgrounds.

    Don't about the puppies yet. I have lots of Christmas fabric and they will fit rit in there...

    It was a chore feeding her cats. They came over to my house to see what we had, and liked ours better. By the end of the week they thought they lived at my house.

    Ah Boston

    What a lovely Sister you have, it's so nice to feel appreciated. I love the dogs in Santa outfits especially the Dachs. Will be looking forward to see what you make with them all. :D
