    This took almost a year in the making for my mother-in-law. I ran out of the dark plum and only needed 8-2 1/2 squares and finally found it on the shopping I did with Karla up in Woodland Park at the LQS Nuts and Bolts.

    I had the panels for a long time and this whole pattern was my own. I have already requested the EQ6 for my birthday this year which by the way is on Thanksgiving and it will be my 50th.

    Thanks, I hope I get it because this pattern was my own and it was hard enough along with running out of material.

    I never realized when I was making it the way the pattern of the teal blocks would turn out to look like X's or the Irish chain.

    She saw part of it the last time they were here and she saw the backing then. Now I just have to get it quilted.

    I still need to finish her miniature dollhouse, it is going to be a flower shop and it will have real working lights.

    Congratulations, Kim!!! Excellent! :thumbup: I just love how you finished your quilt. WOW! :-D Those colors are all so awesome put together like that. May I show Marybeth from Nuts how your quilt turned out? You are a quilting machine! What a great idea on your border, too - love how that turned out.

    Thanks, I am happy with it also. You may show Marybeth, I would bring it up myself but I am trying to conserve money for our vacation.
    I am goind to be very busy soon, my Boxer Ruby Lu is due to have her pups the 3-5th of April. Will have my hands full for the next couple of months after that. I will know how many in a couple of weeks after her x-rays.

    Thanks, Kim. I emailed this link to Marybeth. I know she'll be excited to see your progress.

    Good luck with your doggies and the puppies that are coming. Keep me posted.

    You could come down for the day and get your fill of puppy breath, there is nothing else like it in the world. I just love puppy breath, it kinda makes you all warm and fuzzy inside.

    Now this brings back memories, for sure. Growing up, my folks bred our Doberman off and on. Not long after they were born, it was sheer puppy pandemonium! :lol: They were SO cute, too. So innocent, so soft and squeaky as they nuzzled against Mom for eats. Guess I don't specifically remember their little puppy breath, but that was a hundred years ago or so!! :lol: Thanks for the invite, we'll see.

    I guess it is not too bad for a newbie and being my own pattern.
    Thanks for the praise.
