Hey…I did get it done. Earlier in the week I showed you my Lazy Sunday quilt on the frame and today I can show it to you all finished…TA-DA!!
Hubby really likes this one. I am not sure why except that the colors are darker. Even after pointing out to him that there was green in the quilt (his least favorite color), he said, “Ya, but I not so much.”
I used Hobbs 80/20 which is my favorite batting these days. As you can see, Ruby isn’t being quite as cooperative as usual.
My backing was pretty bland. I was trying to use up fabric I had. Both pieces are backing left overs from previous projects. I had on extra block so that made it’s way into the backing too. You can see my Baptist Fan design in the quilting.
I don’t know what was distracting Ruby..but oh, she just wasn’t herself…
Then the wind picked up and blew the quilt…
It started blowing hard enough that even Ruby’s ears were flapping in the wind.
Oh, I really like this one..but hey, I like every Bonnie Hunter quilt that I’ve ever made!! If you’re looking for the pattern, it was in the first four Quiltmaker magazines of 2013 or it will be coming out in Bonnie Hunter’s upcoming book.
I heard that someone once said never work with animals or children…after trying to Ruby to sit still today, I believe it.
What’s a dog to do if she had an itchy back?? Roll I guess!
Oh Ruby?!?! I guess this quilt if going to have to get photographed without you.

Don’t sweat. quilts look better with a dog and a dog rolling around having fun, even more so. Terrific quilt.
Your quilt looks great Jo.
Love your photographic assistant :D I really like your color choices on this quilt!
Awesome! Love the colors.
What a gorgeous quilt and I love the Baptist Fan design. I’m doing the same design on my Easy Street on my DSM. Ruby is so cute!
Beautiful quilt, Jo! Love your colors and Ruby, too! Have a Quilty Day!
The quilt is beautiful and your assistant was being your buddy. A great quilt inspector I’m sure!
I love this quilt Joanne. Your work is wonderful. Love the colours and that your puppy is enjoying it so much! Looking forward to seeing the next masterpiece!
I have said it before but I will say it again. This is my favorite version of Bonnie’s pattern. Great job!
Love it Jo! And Ruby is a real ham :*)
A pretty ham, but a ham nonetheless!
I really love your colors Jo. I am still working on the borders for mine. I used the colors she recommended and it is not scrappy as I didn’t have enough scraps of each color family. You have a great eye for color. Enjoy seeing your work and Ruby.
The quilt is sooo beautiful and Ruby is just being a puppy:)
Love the quilt!! Great finish. And Ruby just wanted to do doggie things today! LOL! She is so adorable!
This Is one of the most beautiful quilts I have ever seen! I love it!
Love the quilt, and your commentary on Ruby’s behavior. So funny! Good girl, Ruby!
Your dog and quilt snapshots are hilarious, I loved both!
Ha ha, I just shot similar pitures with my cat, once the quilt was on the floor, she had to sit on it, lie down on it and roll on it… Maybe I should add those pictures to my blogpost? LOL
I think your quilt looks great. I especially like A Number 1 helper AKA Ruby!!!
I really need to get mine started!!!!! I have the magazine…. I just don’t have the time! ARGH!!!!
Wow, it’s so beautiful! Congrats on a finish!
Yesterday I received your give away book in the mail “Traditions from Elm Creek Quilts” – and I love it! 2 projects that have been on my to-do list are in there: Hawaiian Applique and Double Wedding Ring – Perfect!
Again: Thank you so much for your generosity!
