Just like that, the weekend has come and gone. Too fast, too fast.
I did make my deadline for the AYOS though, without the final pieced border. I could say that I wanted to see how everyone else finished theirs in the parade tomorrow, but really – I just ran out of time. It looks good though and the colors go really great with our kitchen, so that will probably be the final destination once I decide for sure on the borders.
The finished size right now is right at 26″ square. I used the better part of two charm packs of Indigo Crossing collection, and the background is a print from Jo Morton’s Sundays Best group.
Did you join in the sew along this month? Hope to see you in the parade!
I also worked on my Rally quilt, but I didn’t make it as far as completing the blocks. That will be my priority this week for sure. Need to get it done before this kid moves off to California in a month.
The last surprise for the weekend was that my husband agreed to shelter a feral mommy cat and three kittens. I didn’t know it was feral until it had already stayed under our bed all night. I was confused on the details apparently. Anyway, we plan to take care of her and get her spayed and see what options we have after that. The kittens are ADORABLE! They are about 6 weeks old and pure black and white. I hope to get them into the adoption program that my other two foster kittens are in right now. They have to be spayed/neutered first before they can go to any adoption events, but we’ll have fun with them before that for sure.
These are chunky little kittens, compared to what Sparkle and Jewelry were when they first arrived. They have been well fed by their first foster mom and are playful and quick to warm up to you for a nice nap.
Hope you all had a great weekend and are not dreading Monday morning like me…
Your Dulcinea is so cute… and those kittens are too! I love the way your background fabrics make the blue pop even more!
Thanks Sinta! I think I have found a great print for a border, I’m auditioning it now on my design wall. Not quite sure the gold color matches enough, but we’ll see. I appreciate you and Sherri hosting AYOS – it is such a rush to see my work mixed in with all those other great quilts in your parades. I’m looking forward to Lincoln, and I swear I have that book already – but I spent two hours looking last night and I can’t find it. **sigh** Guess it’s time to clean up again…
Your Dulcinea is beautiful! I love the fabric that you used. 🙂
Thank you Judith! I’m glad I had two charm packs available – I had been wanting to make a blue/neutral quilt and this one turned out great I Think. Thanks for the comment and for visiting my blog!
Love that Dulcinea! The blue with the neutrals looks great 🙂 Cute kittens!
Thanks Michele! I really love the bright and happy colors in yours as well. My next AYOS will be more sunny. I enjoy your blog – thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment on mine!
I love your quilt! Indigo Crossing lent itself very well to that pattern. And hey, we both won!! I still can’t believe it. If you haven’t seen it yet, go look at Sherri’s post for July 2 – it will make you happy. 🙂
Those kittens are adorable. Oh I wish I could have one! We just can’t take on another animal right now, but maybe later…
Have a great Fourth of July!
Linda – I saw that post early this morning (like at 4:30 am) … and I was floored! I have never won any contests, and this past week I have won two! I’m very excited! I really loved your Dulcinea and I think it turned out great. I can’t wait to see if you add more to it, but if not – it was so unique and cheerful – I loved it. We took the kittens to the program director last night so they can get checkups and such, and the kids were so sad to see them go. I think we will be adopting at least two or more very soon… 🙂
