August Modern QAL, Sprouts and Puppies

First things first, I present to you my August Modern Quilt-A-Long block

P1010167

Don’t you just love the birdies? Last month I used a lion in the middle and this month that center square just seemed to be screaming out for something special and what do you know? I just happened to have these little cuties in my stash.

Although I have not been blogging this month I have been relatively productive on the quilting front. Now that I have basted my sisters quilt I have been quilting and burying many many threads. Not much to show at the moment for that one but take my word for it it’s taken quit a bit of my time. I am learning why people do all over quilting designs, yeesh.

Remember the sprouts

They’ve multiplied! My bee mates added to the pile at the last San Diego Modern Quilt Guild meeting. I have one more month to receive blocks from them, let’s hope they are having fun making them, I’ll need to double the number to make this masterpiece.

The last thing I will show this time around is my puppies

P1010171

Last post I had one lonely puppy to share. I now have seven. I am currently working on the last one. Each puppy has about 30 pieces so I am a little puppied out.  Yes, this is for a quilt for our dog Apollo. Yes, he is well loved. Let’s hope the rest of the quilt top goes together a little quicker than this paper piecing has.

Next post I’ll tell you about my trip to Long Beach for the International Quilt Festival!
