Warning: this post contains quilting content!


Meet Lucy , 4 weeks old today. She is the new granddaughter of one of my work colleagues. I have shared the excitement of her impending arrival for many months and of course in one of my mad moments decided this baby needed a quilt! Surprise surprise I was racing against the clock to finish it!! I haven't ever made a 'shaggy' quilt before but thought that backed in cosy polar fleece would be nice. Mmmm polar fleece is not the easiest to work with and stretches. As I was to meet Lucy yesterday I was determined to get the quilt finished. All was going well, it was in the dryer, I went to check it (our dryer is outside under our veranda) and Jimmy bless his heart decided he would like to check it out , jumped up and put muddy paw prints all over the cream backing...................Grrrr.....................if I could of caught him he would no longer be alive!!! Anyway I met Lucy without a present, rewashed and dried it after work last night and it is lready to pass on at work today. For my first shaggy I am happy and I will definitely make another, just not with the polar fleece on the back!!

Love the shaggy quilt. What a gorgeous present for Lucy. I can't believe the dog did that, he's definitely lucky to be alive.
