    Three new QFKs, and not to be outdone by a Golden

    Here are some stashbusters I made in the last couple days. Tink'smom sent me a piece of fabric to put into a charity quilt. So this is the first one. I am going to put a label on it honoring the birth of her first grandchild, Zoe Lee.Name:  P1010426(1).JPG

    Next is the "ugly fabric" cutied up a bit. Another grab bag surprise from the stash. It is premie size.Name:  P1010429(1).JPG

    And lastly, can't be outdone by a Golden. When I layed this down on the floor, Heidi the Great Dane had to see if it was soft enough.Name:  P1010433(1).JPG

    Such nice results! Heidi likes it, so they must be okay!

    Great quilts. Very pleased to see you left Heidi's ears natural. She's beautiful and looks to be the epitome of a gentle giant!

    Wow, that is really pretty! Wondering how you got the dark edges around the squares of Zoe Lee?

    Last year I asked Q for Kids for 2 quilts for a friend's grandchildren. Their Dad drowned. I can tell you personally, these quilts help a lot. I'm not a great quilter so I send my tops & bliocks to Project Linus. Great job!

    Thanks everyone. Heidi is a rescue from a puppy mill. She had many litters of puppies before I got her. She is just a natural born mother, and loves everything baby. She does have her own quilt, but is willing to claim anything that is layed on the floor.

    BTW, the brown on that one quilt is the way the blocks are. That is a preprinted fabric to appear like quilting. It was given to me for charity quilts.

    I can read Heidi's mind..."hmmmmm, this one is fine but the next one could be just a smidge longer!"
    If you feel like you're special...it's 'cause you are!

    You did a great job on all of them. I love the fabric in one. And Heidi's quilt is just so adorable. Tell Heidi she's a cutie too. My cocker spaniel is so helpful when I put stuff on the bed to look at. lol ya gotta love these characters.

    Very pretty quilts and Heidi too. So good of you to give Heidi a good home. I have done that with several cats and 4 dogs over the years. All of my cats and dogs are spayed/neutered as soon as I take them in.

    Your quilts are so wonderful. I truly love the Quilt Inspector. I have one that sits on one corner of whatever quilt I am working on. She truly looks just as content as your big old Great Dane, but she only weighs 6 lbs. She is a Llaso/Poodle mix

    What a angel you are! You make ADORABLE quilts for little ones AND you gave Heidi a good & loving forever home. She looks like a total sweetheart... makes me miss my Sherman (a Harlequin Dane that I had back when I was a young pup my own self). Give her a big ol' hug from Leo & I!

    Adorable quilts-really adorable dog!
    A dog is not "almost human" and I know of no greater insult to the canine race than to describe it as such.
