The Positivity QAL - Finished Flimsy Linky Party from Sew Preeti Quilts

This blogpost is late but I have a very good reason for it...a very cute and furry reason :-)

Louie - our new fur baby

Meet Louie. We brought him home yesterday afternoon.  Louie's rescue dad is moving and could not take him along. We were only too happy to adopt him. The car ride was not fun for him and the thunderstorms did not help. He has been exploring his new environment and is a little skittish. We are getting to know him as he gets to know us. 


Why yes, I live with two handsome males

TWINKLE WHEELS from Nestlings By Robin

Meet Twinkle Wheels
featuring 
Connecting Threads'  
new line of fabric 
I was fortunate enough to 
design a new pattern for them
and I needed to test out the 
block design since I 
was doing something a bit
different for me:)

OK, not the first part that
starts with half-square triangles
(some of my favorites to 
design with:).
Figuring out how to align
the center bit was a tiny
challenge but it 
worked out wonderfully
(if I do say so myself:)!

Here is my cover with 
the finished quilt and 
the second layout you
get from your cut aways
so there ...
