Starting to do some quilting

this was 2 1/2 inch strips that I swapped, blocks are together just have to make it into a quilt, I am using the back of table clothes from the dollar store as a design wall they work great and roll up your project to take where ever you may want to finish. I am going to take this to the feast and finish at Irene`s
The pattern is another Bonnie Hunter called Many Trips around the world, it is still free on her site
i love this picture with Cheech and that curly tongue..LOL lucky shot
and this is a closer and better shot of a very handsome boy. he looks pretty good for a 9èr

Summer is over

quilting had taken a back burner this summer, which is unusual for me, but I got us a new Champ!! Introducing Cheech a 9yr old Chihuahua that was at the Durham Humane Society for 2 years, he came from an abusive home and has some issues that are slowly melting away. He has captured my heart and is slowly melting my husbands. I will tell you more but wanted you to know what was taking up my time.

I did go to a quilting retreat with the Rouge Valley Quilters Guild and this is the project I decided to bring. Rosemarie and Mary of  We Three Quilters did another swap but with 9in Blocks of Reds and white off whites, we found this pattern on Bonnie Hunters site (Majestic mountains) and this is what I pieced on the weekend. I have since then completely changed the layout this was just on the floor beside me as I was going along...
Well glad to be back into quilting I will have much more to show you later, but warning you are going to hear some Cheech stories too.
