My Day is finally here!

For the Hugs and Kisses Blog Hop that is...

And here is the block I made.  I made it to match a quilt top that I finished this month.  First the block:
I think this will be a coordinating pillow.
To match my Dogs and Cats Companions quilt (fabric by Laurel Birch)...



And be sure to visit the rest of the blog hop on today (see the list below):

  10. i am a new follower via email. i love what you did with the laura burch fabric! if it ever needs a new home, i will be more than honored to hand quilt it and donate for a raffle quilt for our local humane society. i live in a county now that is just building a no kill animal shelter. the county i moved from had just built a larger, updated shelter and i donate two quilts for them to auction off. one went for five hundred dollars and the other sold for three hundred fifty dollars. i have quilted for over forty years. all of my quilts are hand pieced, hand quilted and donated. i am such an animal lover, i am always glad to help no kill shelters. i have one inside dog. she is a box/pit mix and was a bait dog for fights. she has all kind of scars from it. she loves to lay in the sun and look out the window, but if she sees a large dog, she starts shaking uncontrolably. she is always entertaining and funny. i receive less than four hundred dollars montly for disability, so buying fabric is not an option. sometimes i win fabric and sometimes wonderful bloggers send me scraps, orphan blocks etc. keep up the great work. blessings, barbara babscorbitt@gmail.com

    1. Barbara, thanks for the offer, but I am a Laurel Burch fan and I am keeping the quilt for myself. I do however, have a bunch of extra fabric in dogs and cats that I would be happy to send to you to make a quilt. Please send me your address and I will put together a bunch. Thanks for writing. Kay

I spent the first 21 years of life in the Mpls area and now 36 years in Kansas. My family is still there and are telling me they are ready for the snow to leave but it keeps coming. Glad to have found your blog.
