Happy fourth...coming up!!

See this precious little baby Dachshund?? She is the new addition to the family! Our son and his fiance could not resist this sweet little doggie...little did I know we would find such a neat little girl. Never mind the little mess around the chair, the baby dog dragged DS's t-shirt all around the room and had a glorious time. I just love her! Her name is Abby...so I call her Abby Sue, or Spud Muffin for short... Hehehe!!
This is one of my little fourth of July quilts. It is special, in that the light blue inner border and the backing are made from a thrown-away pt gown from the hospital, and this is the first quilt I made with a two color binding. The front is one color, and the back part is another. It was not too hard, and I have successfully lost the directions...I think it was in a Fons and Porter magazine.
Busy!!! Busy...at work and at home. Hope everyone is having some glorious summer days...or fall if you are in different part of our world!!
Quiltingly yours,
JulieK

What a sweet little puppy. Lucky you. And lucky Abby to have a loving home. I grew up with a dachsund and my daughter and son in law have one named Rusty...so I am fond of these cute little dogs.

How cute!! We used to have a little red one named, Agnus! She was so sweet and lovable.

I like how you used the hospital gown in you quilt, that is such a neat idea!

There is nothing cuter than a baby dashchund, and Abby is such a sweet name. My Amy is 14 or 15, and her health is failing; but she was so cute as a puppy. Enjoy your new puppy.

I am totally in love with Abby - she is absolutely adorable! Typical doxie, dragging clothes all over the place.
Your little quilt is lovely, and what a great idea to use a gown from the hospital. True recycling. I hope the 4th was a glorious one for you and the family.
