This Is Not A Dog Quilt...

I sure had a chuckle when I read the comments you gals left for me when you read my last post. Carol left a note that finished with, "I ALMOST expect a finished project!!" Well, Carol. You really motivated me to keep after it yesterday. It's not finished, but this is what I accomplished.
When I went online last night, I saw a post Amy Smart had written on her blog, Diary of a Quilter. She actually did a great tutorial for a "Simple Stripes Quilt", and that became my starting point. Of course, I changed the measurements and chose a different arrangement for my fabric assortment, but you can see the resemblance to her quilt.
I also put together twenty blocks, instead of the sixteen called for in Amy's pattern. Each of my blocks was 10" square (smaller than hers) when I began my assembly, so my quilt measures approximately 38" wide by 48 1/2" long.

Handsome said it will be just the right size for Kessie to curl up on when I finish putting it all together. Yea. Right. Gotta love his sense of humor.

Gorgeous, summery colors! I don't know how you pull that together so fast. I swear, I'd still be cutting blocks and then trimming them to get them straight and all of a sudden, they'd be about the size of a postage stamp (which is one of the many reasons I do not quilt!).

This just looks as refreshing as a wonderful fruit salad or a triple scoop of delicious ice cream. Happy finishing your quilt...
P.S. What is a little Kessie drool on washable fabric??? :o)

Love the colors and I think Handsome had a good idea..where will you put it...if you don't think your dog would like the colors then maybe you could make one for him in his favorite colors :) :) :)
