RSC16 week 11

A MOUNTAIN AND A PROJECT LINUS QUILT

Despite a week busy with constant distractions, I did get a few things done.  One was pulling fabrics and then more fabrics.  I’m starting to have piles of pulled fabrics cluttering my work space.  But they are all so special!  
We received another Modern HST Sampler pattern, the Mountain.  There was a special fat quarter I knew that I wanted to use.  After looking everywhere at least twice with no luck, it finally showed up in the very bottom of a box. Hallelujah!  

The special fabric is the middle one with twinkling stars and flowers, my touch of yellow.
My other touch of yellow was this pot of mini daffodils. My son Chris bought me a pot every year, so a friend got them for me in remembrance of Chris.

Update on my zipper pouch:  A good friend came by the other day and had a tough time hunting in her huge purse.  She loved the little pouch and I gave it to her.  She quickly filled it and went away happy and better organized.
Today I looked at the calendar and realized it is only two months until our quilt group charity collection and I have nothing to donate.  So more fabrics came out.  Fortunately I have a fleece blanket with dog motifs waiting to be used.  In my stash I also found doggie fabric on green, at least a yard.  A row quilt is so easy to make, so I laid out the idea below.

When I added the border of cars the name was obvious, Dog Park.  It won’t be as long as the other ones I’ve made, probably more of a square.  No purple, but who knows what the color will be for May?
I link up with RSC16 at soscrappy and Sew Cute Tuesday at Blossom Heart Quilts.
