Well, I don't know about you but I had a great weekend! It was pretty much sewing focused because this was sewing weekend with our quilt club. Mom stayed with us for a couple of nights and we visited with my brother and his family Saturday night.
Yesterday my brother sent me a photo of his dog, Lulu, playing with the lobster that I brought her from Maine. She only likes toys that are as big as she is and she absolutely destroys them. Before we left yesterday she had already removed one tentacle and one eyeball. She still has a lot of appendages to work on.
One of my accomplishments for the weekend was getting the rest of the curved blue pieces attached to the spike pieces. I've got pieces laid out for the next 2 steps.
But I spent most of my time this weekend at sewing and working on a veterans quilt.
I finished one of the 2 quilts in the kit I pulled Thursday! If I had not talked so much Friday I would have started on the second one but I was happy to visit with everyone again and to get one top done.
I love quilts made totally out of scraps. The light blue squares are cut-offs from dyed veterans quilt backs. The dotty batik is left over from the patriotic batiks that I bought for all the kits that I cut and the hand dyed pieces are all from my scrap bin. It's like getting a free quilt.
I also picked up 5 finished tops from other members so I need to get some quilt backs dyed soon. I expect I'll get a few more Tuesday night but I got these paired up so I can pick colors for the backing fabrics.
This week I want to make some good progress on the Red Sunset quilt. That's really my main goal.

the dog sounds like our daughter's dogs - the all get into things constancy eating them and ripping apart!

Lulu sounds like our Odin. He wasn't happy until he'd gotten every last bit of stuffing out of a toy. He favourite was a thrifted teddy bear, totally devoid of stuffing, that he would carry around with him begging anybody who was willing to throw it for a game of fetch. Balls, nope - but that bear was 'it' for him.

I love your scrappy quilt. That will make someone happy.
