• Version One - Something Simple

    IMG_8618

    I went through many designs and many layouts using the little block unit but decided this was the one that worked the best for these fabrics. Let me introduce my latest small wall hanging ‘Something Simple’. Well, technically is isn’t done. It is a summer weight quilt as my best friend and quilting buddy calls it. Top completed and waiting for the layers.

    When I see all of the beautiful machine quilting there is out in blogland it tends to make me feel a bit intimidated but also inspired. Quilting my own quilts is on my ‘TO DO’ list. I need to set aside some time and just DO IT. Do you machine quilt or send it out to someone?

  • Welcome to my world

    I (actually my brother Paul did all the hard work) recently changed the name of the blog to 2 Dogs Studio and revamped the design.

    A lot of thought went into deciding what I wanted from this blog. I have visited tons of sites that range from strictly business to personal. Wasn’t sure if I wanted it to be just a show & tell or something else. I came to the conclusion that I wanted this blog to be a way for me to share my thoughts…my ideas. For it to be my journal/diary. It will give me a place where I can talk about quilting, gardening, two adorable dogs and life in general. A place that will give me the opportunity to show how I come up with quilt ideas from inspiration to the final quilt. A place to ponder designs and layouts. A place to ask for advice.

    Come back to visit and see what is on the design wall. If you like, you can sign up for email notification of new posts.

    Here are my first blocks. I oversized the white background so that I could trim the unit down to a 3-1/2″ square. Aren’t they adorable.
