AVALANCHE!!

You know...the little Rosie Posie Poodle?


I sing this to her: "Rosie Posie Pudding Pie, Chased all the big dogs and made them all cry!" Hmmm, sometimes she covers her ears with her paws and runs away...wonder why?? Anyway!!



Our sweet little stray is such a love bug! She wants to have her paws on anything I am doing...including all the quilts. She just would not let go of this little scrappy quilt...and so, it will be hers. I will finish it for her, and she can have it all to herself, to enjoy and snuggle with. The bottom is not that crooked, just laying a bit wrinkled up. This is from the 2.5 and 1.5 inch scrap bins. I love those bins! It just takes a few minutes to cut up my scraps and replenish the bins, after I have finished a project, and it is great fun to rummage through and see what I can make! This is Bonnie Hunter's idea- her scrap users system.
Look! This is what I mean by avalanche!! These gorgeous nine patch bundles came here, all the way from Australia, for the swap...and I mean just so pretty! thank you so much, Peg!! I love them, and I know all of the swappers will too! Please see her blog here.
These nine patches came here from Georgia, from Amy...aren't they just so yummy? And speaking of Yummy...take a look at that chocolate Amy included! Isn't that just so good...so good...wait a minute, my mouth is full...hmipohphph,m,!! OK, now I can talk!! She also included plaids...I love every one!! thank you, Amy!! Please visit Amy here.
And look!! This wonderful bath of nine patches...3 inchers...are from Linda ( no blog...yet!) in Washington. And look! I was shocked and delighted...she made a quilt too! Isn't it wonderful?? I love it, and thank you so much, Linda!! Wow!
Julie S from Utah sent these gorgeous nine patches...aren't they wonderful? They just are so pretty! She also included some background fabric...and I love it! I have a story to tell you...Julie is a really wonderful lady...I will tell you this after all the nine patches arrive...she is just a super lady! Thank you, Julie! ( no blog...yet!)
More, more, more! These nine patches are from Annie from California...aren't they gorgeous too? I love them...and a quilt too! I am just speechless, you all...it is gorgeous!! I put a label on the quilt...I love it, and thank you, dear Annie! Please see Annie here.

These nine patches are from Annett from Oregon...both large and small...and plaids (she knows me well), and patterns!! Wow, you all...I am surely the most spoiled human on the planet. Thank you, dear Annett!! Thank you all!! Please visit Annett here.



I think that as a group, quilters are one of the most giving and charitable groups. I see quilt after quilt donated to charity...quilters stepping up and helping other quilters and fellow humans in need...prayers and positives thoughts flowing around the net and through our lives. How fun it is for me to get to know you all better through this blog! I am grateful!

So glad you liked the little quilt, Julie! I forgot to mention that my mom made the embellished card (her sig is on the back). Can't wait to have all those wonderful blocks in my hands, they are all so terrific looking.

I can see why Rosie couldn't keep her paws off of the quilt: it is adorable.

It has been wonderful to watch all the blocks, quilts and fabric arrive. You have been a gracious host and deserve all the gifts.

I love Rosie's new quilt. What a great way to use up scraps, I am going to borrow that pattern.

Julie,
Can you tell me which book has the pattern in it for Rosie's quilt. I would love to use some of my scraps up going one.

Thanks bunches,

What a great bunch of nine patches. Your Dear Jane will be wonderful no matter how many times you substitute a block. There are some down in the later rows that I almost substituted. Great job on your progress!!!

Rosie's quilt is gorgeous! I just love making scrap quilts the most, esp. using leaders and enders like you do. Your 9-patch swap is going great guns! And look at all the little extras you get! They add up after awhile! You deserve them. ~karen
