Mid-Month Update

My husband bought me some tulips and mums and Muffin and Pippi just loved them, a little too much! Pippi broke my tulips!  They(the flowers) now stay in the bathroom with the door closed unless I can keep an eye on them!  Mums are poisonous to cats!  We're moving in October so I don't want to plant them outside.

I seem to have finished more than I realized!  I finished two more scrappy trip alongs this week bringing them to a total of 18!  I'm thinking I really like this layout with the blue cornerstones!
 I have four more strips sewn together and three tubes waiting to be cut and re-pieced!  It is getting scrappier as I go along!
I finished three more great granny squares blocks!
I only have one more to finish all of my blocks!  I have cut out half of my sashing.
 Here is my layout, I'll be working on this today!
 Of course Pippi had to help!
 I got 18 more pinwheels from Plano, TX!
I'll start sewing the pinwheels together next week!

Just too much of a temptation..

Love what you are doing.

Lots of great progress. When my cat killed the roses my husband bought me he said I was never getting flowers again. The cat now lives in another state and I still have never gotten flowers ever again!

Sarah said...

I suppose Pippi was helping with the quilt to make up for the broken tulips? Your granny squares are so cheery in those colors - that's the second blog I have seen today in similar colors - I think it's a sign...

I love the flowers on your sashing, it really works well. Great to have the extra help too.

Great blocks! I can't have anything green at cat level at my house either. Tucker eats them or makes a mess trying to get at them for a bite.

Love the dark on Pippi's face! Your Granny Square quilt is really pretty! I love the bright colors!

Missy, I don't know how you do it. All your quilts are a piece of art. Also, your sewing machines are so awesome. I never knew there was such a thing as a hand crank sewing machine. Hopefully someday I will run into one. Do you keep any of your quilts or are most of them gifts?

Great Blocks! Very pretty!
