My 'I Wish I Had A Dog' Quilt

Every year, a group of us do the kambrachallenge with the privilege of picking next years' theme rotating among the members of the challenge group.

For the 2007 kambrachallenge we had to make something using at least some of each of these fabrics. They are delightful aren't they? We have Michelle to thank for choosing these beauties. And she seemed like such a nice girl ...

Now, these fabrics are pretty much my idea of patchwork hell and if I were the kind of person who ever described a group of fabrics as being 'butt ugly' these fabrics would be at the top of the list. But I'm not that kind of person, so I won't.

Over the past 12 months, I was hard pressed to come up with something, anything, that wouldn't make me vomit or want to commit a felony just to get out of the challenge this year. Maybe serving 10 to 20 in a federal penal facility would have gotten me off the hook.

It named itself, this quilt, because if I had a dog, it would now have a new dog blanket.
Next year's challenge theme is 'This is Your Life'. I can hardly wait!

All I can say is, if you give this much love to your dog, I wish I was your child/friend/neighbour......LOL I love it, it's beautiful.

And I'm the one who chose the butt ugly fabrics. All I can say is - if you loved them, it wouldn't have been a challenge. And BTW, I have two dogs.
