Well, look who think it's their quilt, I think Charlie Dog likes his arrangement of the blocks

I laid the sewn rows out to take
the picture and guess who just had
to lay on the piece, this is to funny
my dog the quilt artist

26 Quilts in the River,

First two rows sewn together, coming out quite nice.  When I was laying the squares out on my bed to decided the pattern, Charlie Dog decided to sneak in behind my back and rearrange the squares, I walked back into the bedroom and squares were everywhere, he must have done flips on the bed, lol
Anyway, I decided just to gather up the blocks and go for it no rhyme or reason.  I think it is turning out just fine, actualy I think the 3 blues set it off.

Inspired by Ro Bruhn's blog

I have been so inspired by Ro Bruhn's Blog.  I got an idea to make my friend Janis a Bible Cover.
Nothing like what Ro does, but I think it came out great.  I hope she like it.  You really can't see the sparkles, but it does have sparkles all over it

Ok, I stand corrected by my Aunt Glady, she said there were 26 quilts that my Grandmother threw overboard.  So, the name is now changed to 26 Quilts in the river ....lovin it...
a scarf I have been working along on.  The yarn makes me dizzy for some reason.  Maybe I will have it finsihed by winter.

Progress on Roseville Album

I just had to post a picture of the top square on my Roseville Album.  I am so proud of the chicken and the bird.  the green polka dot is another cat, I'm not sure that that fabric will stay.  I wanted to prove that between the "TORNADO ALLEY, Crazy Quilt" and the "25 QUILTS THROWN IN THE RIGER, Road to Oklahoma" I am actually working on my RA......yes people, I am living up to my condition
Obsessive, Compulsive.....

"25 Quilts in The River

25 Quilts in the River. that's the name of my new quilt.  The pattern is a Road to Oklahoma,
my aunt told me a story about how my Great Grandmother came to Oklahoma from Alabama in a covered wagon.  She was on a Ferry crossing the river into Oklahoma, when she realized that her team of horses couldn't pull the wagon up the hill once they were on the other side of the river, so she had to throw 25 quilts into the river.  She said the Indians came from everywhere to get the quilts out of the river.  She said she would have given them the quilts had she known they were watching her and wanted the quilts.....I told my Aunt, well she would be proud of me, I made of for her having to do that. lol.  So this quilt is dedicated to Grandma. (this is just the first 4 squares, it will be Queen size)
