New Finish and New Puppy

We have a new edition to our family. Is this the cutest? He's a little 10 week old Jack Russell and his name is Spike. Gotta have a tough name for something this sweet and little. He's such a cuddler.

And oh by the way here's the quilt finish. Couldn't resist one more sweet picture of this guy. It's another small quilt about 16 x 20.

Small Quilts

This is a challenge quilt I made with my online group Small Quilts. It was really fun to make and quick. The challenge was to use fabrics you don't normally use. I used some from my stash that have been hiding in the back for some time. I call them ugly fabrics because I wasn't very fond of them. Now that they're in here though I really like them.

Paper Piecing

This is my first foray into paper piecing. I'm doing the BOM Washington Medallion and the center, feathered star is paper pieced. It was difficult to get my brain around lining up the pieces to begin with but now that I have the hang of it, it's pretty easy. I like the way my star turned out. I see some errors but hopefully they won't show too bad and I still like the way it looks. The little house was the test piece to practice.
