Oh, I am so exhausted from all this free motion quilting I have been doing. It has taken DAYS!
I just have to share it...
You can't see it very well but this one says "heart"
This is one of Tess's impromptu flower suggestions. And of course, all of us poodles like to cuddle.
I will show pictures of the complete quilt once it is bound. We have to wait for human mom to do that. Poodles don't have opposable thumbs, you know.
We haven't come up with a name for this quilt yet but it will have the word "crush" in it, hence the post title.

Human Mom has been blabbing and blabbing about this quilt over on HER blog www.simplifyandquilt.blogspot.com but the snow is long gone, as is Valentine'sDay, and the quilt still hasn't been put on the long arm. I am thinking it is going to require a dedicated poodle to get this one going.
Maybe if I give her my big, brown, sad, poodle eyes...
And...if Oliver pitches in...
What do you think? Will it work?
I will let you know...

The inner border of the quilt is 2 1/2 inch strips of the black on white.
The corner squares are cut to 4 & 1/4 inches.
It takes about 3 & 1/2 to 4 yards of black on white fabric.
The overall measurement of the quilt is about 60 X 75 inches, so a large lap quilt. Add another row and column of blocks and you have a large twin quilt.
Unfortunately, I need to make about five more of these to get all Mom's scraps used up!
Happy Scrapping in the New Year!

Hope everyone has had an amazing Christmas! We had lots of fun! Now, time to set some goals for the New Year and get stitching!
I have been sneaking in some work on Mom's scrap bins. She has about four that look something like this...
Can you believe it?
We can't keep those hanging around in the New Year, cluttering up our creative space!
Looking at all that wasted fabric, I couldn't wait to get my paws on it! So, in hopes of cleaning out some of Mom's hoard...I mean stash, I have been making strip sets.
I saved the left overs and they will be used in the border.
Stay tuned and I will post my pattern and pieced string top here in another day or two, certainly by New Year's Day, so stay tuned.
If you are inspired to start stripping with me, I would love to see your work!
