Another Sneak Peek: FSQS (and 50th post!!)

And another WIP ... my summer quilt for the Four Seasons Quilt Swap. I'm showing it here in its early stages ... still lots of piecing to do, but I am pretty excited about how it's turning out so far. Think it's summery enough? I'm using a cool pattern (Bay Breeze) from Quilts & More, Summer '08.

I just realized that this is my 50th post! I am definitely going to do a giveaway, but I'll post it under separate cover. No, this isn't a shameless ploy to get you to come back ... it's just that it's Sunday night and I am physically exhausted. I figured this can wait another day or two!

Any good ideas for what to give away? I have some thoughts already, but I am open to suggestions.


I also realize that I've slacked off on posting new pictures of Clancy. I promise to get some pictures of the big guy up soon. As a teaser, he's literally doubled in size since we got him 3 weeks ago, and he's fitting in with the family splendidly.

Last weekend:


This evening:


See what I mean??!

  1. I like what I see so far. Your colors are great. The dog is cute. A big dog is will say. I like your doll quilt also. Good color choices.

  2. Clancy is adorable! I love that color and fluffiness! I bet he's really soft! My littl buster looks soft, but really his hair is kinda rough... still fun to pet though! I love your FSQS quilt so far! Those fabrics are great. I hope she continues to do them... I'd like to get in on the fall one this time around!

  6. Great colors in that quilt! Looks like all kinds of fruit juices for a cool summer drink.

    May I suggest *again* some of those chocolate tarheels for at least part of the prize? *S*

  19. Clancy is soooooo cute! I'm actually trying to get my dad to get the same type of dog. Clancy looks like a larger version of what my dad has (cockapoodle). It's fun to see Clancy growing!

  20. Love your quilt. I have some of that fabric ~ Just haven't decided what to do with it yet. I miss living in NC ~ we were in Raleigh. I still have friends in Cary. The only reason we didn't end up there was we were told that CARY stood for City of All Relocated Yankees! Too funny
