Monday’s Rambles ~ Quilting, Porcelain Collection, and Park Photographs

How’s that for a title…sorry so long.

I’m almost finished with a craft challenge ~ just need to bind the wee quilt. The only thing that was given was four colors ~ Pink, Turquoise, Brown, and Cream.

The fabrics I picked out (what looks to be black is actually a dark brown):

The pattern ~ from Stars by Magic ~ Nancy Johnson-Srebro ~ Block No. 2…I ended up making four 10″ blocks.

Here it is ready for me to finish the binding. I pieced the back together with the leftover fabric…I had just enough! Whew! It’s only 29″x29″ so I think I’ll donate it to Renown neonatal…perfect for a wee lass.

My other entry is a Sundae Pincushion…I had to use Turquoise buttons as I couldn’t figure out where to put blue on a sundae!

Fabric I picked out to make a lap quilt for my niece Hannah, she’s into lime green. 🙂

A VERY, very, VERY SMALL glimpse of my Irish Wade and Belleek collection…I have a lot of both.

Leo’s Whiskers ~

The rest are photographs I took on Saturday’s walk around Rancho San Rafael Park. Canada Goose, Hens & Chicks, Doggies and their owners in the dog section of the park.

    The pincushion is SO cute, and I love the baby quilt. Stars are probably my favorite blocks.

    Sheesh, looks like Leo could pick up radio stations with those whiskers… ;-P

    I love the pink fabric in those stars! There’s something about fabric with faint words on it.
    That’s a great shot of kitty whiskers.
