To start out I am dog sitting my son's dog. She is a Blue Healer and her name is Bashful. She is 3 years old and still kinda hyper, but a good dog. Typical dog likes to lay where she can see you. She is a spoiled dog when she comes to Grandma's house.

This is my most favorite product on the market. I use these when I wash my quilts to collect the color out of the wash water. I washed my quilt this morning and the purple color on the rt side it the sheet after washing the quilt. They do work.
This is the finished washed quilt. Lots of hours in this one and the use of all the scraps makes me feel like it didn't cost to much to make.

All I had to buy for it was the batting and the black fabric. Otherwise it was scraps I had here in the house.

This is the back of the quilt. I was given the backing from my Mom she had bought it for another quilt and didn't end up using it.

1200 yards of thread were used in the machine quilting on this quilt. Now I have to clean. All kinds of thread ends all over the house.

This isn't where this will be used, but I thought it would look good on this bed. It is going to be used on the couch. My husband sleeps on the couch most of the time and the couch quilt has seen better days. I will keep it for a throw when we have the grandkids, but it was fading and also the stitching is breaking on the quilting. Lots of diagonal quilting was done on it.
I am so glad this one is done. A couple set backs and finally it is done. Chris
