Progress on the Crayon Quilt

Progress on quilt number seven. I’ve added another row to the string bean quilt. I’ll play with the color placement before I sew any of this stuff together but for now this is how I’ve placed them. They are fun from a distance when you get the overall feel for the colors. And they are fun when you look up close at each block where you can see the various textures and patterns.

Introducing one of my favorite companions. This turned out to be such an interesting photo, her in that strange twisted pose and the feeling that this simply can not be comfortable for her, yet she looks wise and knowing. (And yes, she really does have four paws! LOL) She’s a border collie mystery mutt mix and she’s a delightful creature. She was the last of the litter and my favorite from birth. I fed her goat’s milk as her mother couldn’t keep up with all eight of them. I called her Misdemeanor for quite some time. All seven puppies would be where they were supposed to be and she would be out exploring the far reaches of the kingdom. Once we decided that we’d keep her and become a two dog household we decided that we’d better give some thought to that name. So we shortened it to Misde. Or Miss D. She is a precious creature, currently curled up with me on the sofa.

I had a number of other pressing matters to attend to today, so this row with the yellow seemed to take forever as I snatched a moment with it here and there. But just a bit ago I finally finished it and I’m pleased so far. Progress is good.
Next is the lime green row. :)


  1. I like it so far. It is a blaze of hot color with our 0 temperature tonight.

  2. Love love love this. String quilts are my second fave after log cabins. It makes me want to get out the strips again. See what you do!

  3. I can tell right now I am going to love this quilt. It has all the colors that I love plus the punch of black and white! Can't wait to see it all!

  4. That quilt is beautiful! I love the color combination.

  5. I love the crayon quilt. great photo of Miss D.
