    The Quilty Puppies and Shakespeare in the Park

    Since I have finally finished my Diamond Pineapple quilt and have rested a bit lol.

    http://www.quiltingboard.com/picture...210260-18.html

    I have decided to make this quilt, for some very good friends of mine. I had promised, that one day I would make them a special quilt. I am doing Shakespeare in the Park by Judy Martin, out of her Creative Pattern book.

    I pulled out some blues of several values, reds, oranges, and creams. I was reading the book and the puppies, Emily and Milly) decided they wanted to help, so I put them up on the table so they could watch and help me read lol.

    Here is my Molly, she is in the hole, (that's the space under my sewing cabinet where the extension table is, she was helping too.

    Here is the beginning of the block. The four squares for the middle.

    Then the tri's are cut, making sure to trim the points off so everything goes together smoothly.

    I made my first block to check my sewing. I made a mistake already lol, but caught it on the first round.

    Here are seven blocks. Now this isn't the way it's going to look. There are going to be star blocks between. I am going to do all the reels first tho and then the star blocks. I am now doing speed piecing after checking my first block. This will be a king size quilt.

    I think it's going to be a very very pretty quilt. I love this pattern. I bought the book just for that pattern lol and then went on to buy a couple more of her books. I love going to her site and looking at all the quilts people have made from her patterns. Keep up the good work.

    You need to get you another Muffy now. We got these little darlings last May because we know the two old boys are going to leave us soon.

    My two little dogs have a blanket to sleep on on my sewing table! They love to lay there and look out the window while chains of patches cover them up!

    Rosy, I can't wait to see your vision complete. Your finished blocks are beautiful. I love the colors. Your puppies are adorable. I just got a new puppy to add to my mini zoo. He's a daschund/York mix. He certainly is busy. I like it. Makes me feel young. (*yorkie) Spell check is a pain sometimes. Your puppies brought a smile to my morning. Thank you.

    That pattern is definitely on my list to do...it's spectacular and I can't wait to see yours finished. Thanks for sharing your progress, it's inspiring me!

    Thank you Ladies. I love to have those puppies near me and they love to be with me every turn. I am fixing them a spot on the sewing cabinet so they can watch while I sew lol. My Molly used to have that spot.

    I did the seven blocks in a short afternoon so I suppose it won't take that long to finish the reel blocks. I am cutting today as I want as many different fabrics in the reels. So far I have just done some blues, now it's time to add all the rest. I will post pics of blocks as I go.

    This couple that I am making this for, are really some dear friends of mine of many years. He in particular has given me so much of his time on different things, from learning the computer etc. It will such a pleasure to make this quilt for them, I might make two lol. I am thinking that I need at least a twin for me lol.

    Thanks for showing these pics. I am in the planning stages of a Shakespear in the park quilt that I want to make scrappy and there aren't many pics of scrappy ones to look at.
