Pink Diamonds Quilt

Finished another one this week.  I'm calling this one Pink Diamonds but the pattern name is really "Hugs and Kisses" by Jaybird Quilts.  Here's a link to the pattern:  

It requires the Lazy Angle Ruler by Creative Grids.  I made this one twin size quilt.  I cut out tons of strips one day using the June Taylor Shape Cut Pro. Oh my stars I was cutting up scraps unbelieveably fast using that.  I actually got a little carried away ironing the scraps and cutting them and needed to take an Alleve because after two days of cutting, I strained my shoulder on my cutting arm.  But quilting injuries are always worth it :)  Longarmed it yesterday in the morning and got the binding on it yesterday afternoon.  It goes to the new owner today.  

This is the backing.

Lil Twister Shamrock Pattern

Made this using the Lil' Twister ruler/template.  The pattern is in one of the Lil Twister books.  Not sure I'd use the "Lil'" one again but I do plan on using the bigger one to plow through some scrap fabrics.  Used a goofy St. Paddy's Day themed fabric for the backing.
This is the ruler I used.  It's available at quilt shops and on line in many places.

A Greenhouse from a friend :)

A friend gave me this green house she no longer wanted :)  Way  cool.  Slowly moving the geraniums that survived winter in the house outside and then I'm going to put some starters or seeds out there. Thank you so much JM :) I need to re-do that "foundation" but for now it's okay :)  

Cutest dog ever :)

Finally found a dog toy small enough for Zoey to make squeak.  Some of the toys in the pet store are bigger than she is :)  My friend Beth thinks Zoey's bark sounds more like a squeak toy :) But she's a smart little girl and let us know in the middle of the night that a fox was circleing the chicken coop.
