This is so cute! I love that tiny little dog in the middle of the big bold blanket.

What a clever idea! The purpose of the quilt is genius. And the little dog applique--is just like an exclamation point. Made me giggle and say, "now that's really clever!"

Hey there AllThatPatchwork. I haven't seen any new projects from you in a while. I always love your work--hope you will show us your new stuff soon! Your buddy Linda.

Hi Linda. You are right; I haven't been around Craftsy very much in the past month or so. A multitude of other things have taken priority. The biggest is that a stretch of good weather meant it was time to get out in the yard and clean up all the weed growth from over winter in the landscaping on our double lot. Most years sewing almost comes to a halt during the good weather months due to yard work and I expect that this will be no exception. Also, about a month ago I was re-diagnosed from type 2 to type 1.5 (LADA) diabetic and put on insulin. That has meant much of my web time has been devoted to researching health topics. I've been trying to finish up the "bottom of the barrel" of fabrics donated for charity quilts, and some of the resulting items I didn't feel were interesting enough to warrant sharing on Craftsy. I have made a few little pet quilts as custom orders and a few extra for my Etsy shop. They are so simple I hadn't really thought about sharing them on Craftsy, but maybe I should. For the next month, what sewing I do will likely focus on making some simple pants and tops that FIT, since it is impossible to find ready-to-wear that's acceptable. Again, I don't know if I'll bother to show off such simple items on Craftsy. It will likely be after the fall rains start that I find enough time to do much creative work in the sewing room again. But I do stop by enough to see what you and others have done. Many times I think, "I don't have time to comment right now, but I'll come back to do so later." Unfortunately, that hasn't happened much. I certainly enjoy seeing all your creative endeavors!

Every dog should have its own quilt. The red sweater really grabs the viewer's attention.
