Orange triangles Baby Quilt

I am going to be a Great Aunt, my nephew and his wife are going to have a baby. 
Excited. So excited that I had to make a gender-neutral baby quilt.

 The Orange is not florescent! It is simply THE color I cannot photograph accurately. The picture below I tried to edit it to calm it down, but ?????
Going to get this in a box to mail.
Have a happy weekend!

Modern Boro patchwork



"Boro" meaning rags, raw edge scraps of fabric - patch over patch…
Very modern using machine stitching (lots of it) and bright modern fabrics.

Dog Party

Two goofy Boxers. Zeek and Miya. They are my son and dil's sweet dogs. They play and play and play… then they stop for big velvety hugs. They use their paws a lot. 
This is Boozer, my Mom's newly adopted Pug.  He turns in circles when he is happy and he just gets along well with anybody. 
We are dog sitting this weekend, six total counting my Jack Pack.  
Who, I might add, are the mellowest of them all!
It is interesting to me seeing the unique typical characteristics of the different breeds of dogs.

happy sunshine dogs

It was kind of springy today and the Jack Pack loved it. 

Healing quilt in purples and gray

 Finished up a healing quilt for a friend. 
Backed with that number script fabric from Ikea, and a bit of purple.
Quilting has slowed down. Work is busy, and summer is on the way. I was able to get outside and spring up the compost pile - it's about 2 1/2 months to garden planting.  Also went on my first motorcycle ride of 2014 today. Bring on the sunshine!
