As you can see there is virtually no fullness to the skirt. So I am about to rip it apart and make it a smaller size, which will give me more fullness.

Blanket for Pinkerton
We lost our wonderful Pinkerton on April 30, 2012. He was 14 years and 7 months old. I made this blanket to cover him in his casket. We buried him in a pet cemetery in Midland. I stitched the last line in a slightly darker colour since I'd used up a whole spool doing the first three lines and I didn't want to run out part way through that last line.. And it is looking a bit darker still because it is still damp from removing the stabilizer. I have another piece of this fabric and will likely make another, almost the same, for us here at home.

My first quilt!
This is for my grandbaby, Teddy. Beatrix Potter designs: Bernina. Various Beatrix Potter fabrics. I cut the srips with my Accuquilt cutter. Quilting is stitch-in-the-ditch along the horizontal seams, echo quilting around the embroidery designs (stitched with leather roller foot #55 on my Bernini 830) and Sashiko (by machine; Babylock) stitching around the squares.
