The Stinker’s Quilt (guess who that is)

Missouri Star Quilt Company Friday tutorial was for a simple ‘wave’ type quilt that I thought would be perfect for my stinker Sami a new quilt. She hasn’t had one for a while so I thought this pattern would be good for her. Jenny’s pattern showed more of a wavy effect but for some reason I didn’t go as wavy. The next one I do will not be wavy, just straight across.

I purchased a cute pattern called Speak Love recently from Slice Of Pi Quilts Blog Spot that showed the white area used for messages. This is where I got the idea of putting a little message in the this quilt. Check out Laura’s patterns. She is so creative and I always get so many ideas from her blog. I plan on using Speak Love pattern for my new great-grandbaby that is due in June. (Oops…that is a surprise, so Glenda don’t tell)

The letters are not permently attached and only used for the photo op. This way they can be changed as needed. With the new great-grand it can be used as a monthly age progression quilt showing the picture at age one month, two month,  any special occasion, etc.

On Sami’s quilt I used a charm pack in American Basics from Windham Fabrics and Kona White. Of course, I still haven’t quilted it yet. I have added it to my stack of tops to be quilted. I am waiting for the quilt police to haul me away for getting so far behind.

Sami was SO GOOD this time. As you can see when I put the quilt down for the picture she was so eager to jump on it to check it out but she restrained herself, almost. As soon as I said it was OK, she bounced over and sat in her picture posing position.  She is such a diva!






I am a retired grandmother living in hot and sunny Florida. I spend most of my days doing what I love: sewing and quilting. I have a spoiled rotten Boston Terrier named Sami who keeps me busy mostly by cleaning up after her and refilling holes in the yard that she insists on digging and burying her toys. Of course then she digs them up and brings them into the house resulting guessed it...more cleaning. I will be posting pictures of Sami, quilts, flowers, and other things as they come along. Glad to have you join me.

    1. Thank you Chela. We are very excited. It is the first for all of use: the first baby for Maddie and Jonny, the first grandbaby for my son and DIL, & first great for me and the other set of greats. I know it will not be spoiled at all. 🙂
