Meet Rover the test block. Well he’s not actually a block yet. I have this really bad habit of making applique shapes before I make a block, even before I come up with a design. I have loads of these little orphan applique shapes everywhere! I was cleaning out a random drawer last week and came across a dozen pandas LOL.

You see, a sketch, which then turns into a template, doesn’t necessarily work in fabric. What looks in proportion on paper quite frequently looks weird when made up in fabric. Sometimes you have to tweak the shape to make it work.


I only have a vague idea of where this quilt will go, no definite plans, but I want a quilt that is snuggly and I felt like making something with dogs on it.

Hey, my daughter’s laptop just caught fire; flames and all. Eeeek! She is frantic, she’s been working all night on a group assignment (due tomorrow) that goes towards her Uni entry mark. Thank God it didn’t catch fire while it was charging overnight and we were asleep. Doesn’t bear thinking about.

Nite y’all. xx

  • Love the dog. Thought you were joking about laptop on fire (as in overworked) Scary!!! Must have given your poor daughter a fright. Hope she’s ok.

  • How scary with the laptop. I hope she wasn’t hurt! It could have been really serious. Rover is cute. He deserves a quilt of his own.

  • Rover is just lovely – looks just like I would love a pat and snuggle with! gosh – what a scare with the laptop –

  • Love the puppy! Though I think he looks more like a Louie rather than a Rover. :0P Eep to the laptop fire! The opposite death to mine, which drowned. Hope she had backup files. My Dropbox account saved my sanity … Or more accurately, saved GB’s sanity! :0) Bear Hugs! KRIS xx
