Cheerful Quilts

I hope you had a great weekend and had time to quilt.
The last 3 quilts I quilted are all so cheerful. This batik quilt was pieced by Ardy which I quilted with the "Meandering Daisies".
This is the center of the quilt.
Batik border.

Pink backing.
This is another one of Ardy's. It is a sampler quilt with teal, blue, and heart fabric(the lighter colored fabric). So I quilted it with "Hearts A Flutter" to tie that fabric in.

Vibrant striped backing.
Christy made this striking quilt out of her very last blue and white scraps. The quilting pattern was "Flower Swirls".
Close up of pieced border.
Scrappy blue and white blocks. I've always thought that blue and white color combos are so classically beautiful.

Blue flower backing.
Lake Jackson, TX just keeps getting hotter. But what's worse is the humidity! Our little Max can still barely stand a potty break outside. Some more news on Max: the vet recomended some special formula weight management food that he's now on.

Happy Quilting Until Next Time,
Millie :-}

Those quilts are all so pretty. The never-ending creativity of quilters just amazes me, and as always - your beautiful quilting just makes them that much prettier!

Beautiful quilting. How nice that you get to quilt such happy quilts.

One of my dogs goes outside and lays down until the other dog does her business. The first one only does what she is out there for early in the morning and late at night. She is the smart one, I think.

When my fat dog, Chelsea, was alive. I very much overendulged her. At one time she weighed 120 pounds. On a Bassett Hound. That was not good. The vet had me put her on a the weight control dog food by Eukanuba (probably spelled that wrong)That food was over a $1 per pound. Poor fat dog thought she was being punished! But the weight DID come off. It took 2 and a half years to get 45 pounds off her. She was like a new dog after that. She just wasn't strong enough to combat cancer. (Ack! Don't get me crying!) Anyway........the weight will come off him - but expect it to be slow. Dogs metabolisms (sp?) just are not like people's - even with exercise.

PS - I think it's MORE humid here in TN. Down right sweltering.
