Candy Gems

This has been done for awhile, but there has been a furbaby seeking my attention a lot these days.
This is backed in minky dots, which quilts up really well. Fear not the minky people!
I probably wouldn't bind in it again, as it's very thick, but for a little 3 year old, this will be the perfect backing to cuddle with.

I dropped the quilt in the snow...well, rather, the wind blew it off the fence...so there's snow all over.
I quilted just the white parts of this quilt. I kind of like the effect! Click on the images to enlarge for more detail.

This is what is taking up my time. I mean, really he looks so gorgeous and innocent here, but right now he is tormenting the cat and taunting me with every.little.thing that isn't glued to the floor.

I haven't introduced him to my sewing space downstairs yet. I'm afraid.


  1. Oh my gosh that's the cutest little pup!!! And the quilt is great!! Love how you did the quilting :)

  2. I don't think I'd get much done if I had that as a distraction! Great contemporary quilt.

  3. I really like the ripples you created with machine quilting on the white spaces. Sweet puppy!

  4. What a cute finish (and a cute puppy)! I'm glad to hear that you're not running in the other direction after using Minky on the backing. I'd love to try it, but I've been a bit intimidated. How closely did you place your pins for basting?

  5. It turned out really great! I never would have thought of using minky for anything other than tied quilts... Seems to work well!

    That pup is just so darn cute!

  6. Love the quilt, and Jasper is a cutie!

  7. You bound it in minky as well? Brave lady! Love the way it finished up.

  8. Your quilts/crafts are so fantastic! It's so nice to find other quilters all around the world!
    Hugs, Ulla (from Finland)

  9. Both are adorable. we trained Lily to not go upstairs or in hubby's office. She doesn't dare. Enjoy puppy days.

  10. I think this is SUCH an awesome quilt design!
