Sam sent a photo of her dog Damien. He's not just a good companion, Damien models her quilts!!
Damien is sporting what appears to be a canine themed quilt, beautifully crafted with machine quilting. Note how the stunning blue binding highlights Damien's eyes! Donning a quilt like this is a sure way to appeal to girl dogs and quilters!
This week I bid adieu to a comfort in my collection and thought I would post about it today.
My youngest son asked if I had something really warm for his bed. His new apartment apparently is a bit chilly at night. Yes indeed I did.
I've had this tied comfort for years but could never use it in a lecture because it is so big and thick that it requires it's own suitcase.I'm a sucker for tied quilts especially when the Pennsylvania Germans used red wool to anchor the thread.
The next morning our boy texted to say thank you and the comfort had done the trick! I think the quilter who made it would be delighted that over a 100 years later, it was still providing warmth and comfort!
This reminded me of this article I clipped that was syndicated in 1885:
Tomorrow is Flower Friday and if you have a floral image to share (or a pet photo or textile), email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Have a safe and happy day!
