Pet Project Show #13


My Life Aquiltic
A very modern looking pieced back using my 
remnants. I envision a column of ocean water 
with a small wave swell on top.


I spent yesterday sewing alongside my mom. 
She worked on her Little Dresses for Africa, and 
I finished this quilt top. (Aren't we lucky?) 
This will be another Pie Quilt.




I had to snap these pictures late yesterday
afternoon before I lost the light. I wanted
you to have a realistic idea of how relaxed
I am when making a quilt sandwich. I've 
had some shifting in the back while moving
it around so I'll need to fix that before 
I actually start FMQ. I'm also adding 
just a little more length to the ends, 
 to ensure I don't run out of backing
while quilting. You will get shrinkage.




I'm off taking a class today in creating a 
landscape quilt. It's offered through my new
and sounded too interesting to pass up.
Besides, I've made some good friends there
already, and they're coming. Quilting is a 
social hobby if you want it to be.


This was last Saturday at Heritage Arts Days.
How can you not smile when you're
sewing among friends?


It's Saturday, and time for the weekly 

Pink Doxies 


Pet Project Show. 

Add your link here every Saturday. 

Rules


Do we have to have rules? 


No worries! It's EASY.



1. Use the blue 'Add Your Link' button (below left) 
to upload a picture of something you've created 
in the past week. Any kind of handiwork--
share it now! It can be a work in progress, 
finally finished, or even your fab new fabric. 
Whatever it is that inspired you to create this 
week, we'd like to see it here. 

2. Please link to a specific post, and not just your 
blog address. It makes it easier for someone 
following your link to find the project.

3. Provide a backlink to Pink Doxies with a link in 
your post, or pick up our Pet Project Show 
button in the sidebar. Copy the code, then 
create a Pet Show widget with 'Add by HTML' 
on your Layout page.

-OR-

1. You can link up to your Instagram. 
Click on the Instagram icon at the bottom 
of the link up screen. The URL of your Instagram 
feed will be your link. 
Please hashtag #pinkdoxiespetproject


Either way you link up, remember it's a party 

here, so schmooze with the crowd! Visit others 
who've linked up. Leave a comment so they 
know what you like about their work.

The Linky Party starts now, and runs until

  3. Your triangles look good, and so does the pieced back. I have an ocean themed quilt coming up this year--still designing it. Not sure I'll ever have the courage to do a triangle quilt. Visiting from Oh Scrap!

It's always enlightening to hear your thoughts or suggestions. I try to respond in a timely manner, but admit life is very full here! I will return comments online if it's of general interest, but offline if a personal response is more appropriate. Give me a shout with anything urgent at julie@pinkdoxies.com, and I'll try to get right back with you. While I believe in free speech, spamming will not be tolerated, and as in all our interactions, speak kindly.

If you want to be certain of a personal reply, leave your email or email me privately. Many people are not even aware when they have become a no-reply blogger. Yes, I know it's frustrating for us all.
