Here is the quilt my sister-in-law and I worked on while we visited in NC.  She actually made two … this one and another.  Hopes to give one to her son/fiancé along with two cute coffee mugs that match the theme.  BUT her sister made known she would like it instead.  I told her she could do a 3rd using the Buzz Buzz Kit offered by MSQ as it was more in the gray fabrics and tones, which is her house interior.

Zoe, I'm so glad to meet your dog friends.  They look like really good listeners.

Zoe, where do you sleep! LOL LOL

But Zoe, the other one will want one too.

Kathy, it must 've made you glad you stopped in. You remind me of the times l helped store customers in difficulty when figuring yardage in the home dec  sections for their drapery projects...they invariably fogot to allow for pattern repeat and matching up their panels.

This is the real Zoe laying down, and Oliver sitting. Please do not do for both.

Wonderful story, Kathy!

I just told Ma,the big fluffy Samoyed that she might be getting a holiday surprise in December.  As summer temperatures are here I could tell she is hoping for snow.

Kathy, what a grand story.  I find myself doing the same whenever I dare go in a fabric shop...but you had such a delightful extra challenge.

Ladies, don't forget that in September we are doing something for our Secret Santa sister's pet/s.  If you haven't posted pictures of your pet/s yet, please do so as soon as you can.  We wants to give our sister's an idea of what kind of pet she will be designing for.  Thanks everyone for joining in and participating.  It helps us to get to know each other on a little different level than just quilting.  I always find it interesting to learn just how similar and how different we are, no matter where we are from.

I went to a shop recently where I observed a lady who was comparing several pieces of fabric together.  I remembered seeing a fabric several rows over that I thought would go perfectly with what she was looking at.  So I went over, grabbed the bolt and took it over to where she was standing.  I walked over and said "I think this would go great with what you are working on."  She looked at me a little bewildered, but when I showed her the fabric next to what she was looking at, she started nodding enthusiastically.  It was then that she said something to me that was basically "I don't speak English".  I'm not sure though, because whatever it was, I don't speak it either.....LOL.  She then motioned for me to come with her.  She was with another young lady, who didn't speak much English, and through hand motions and gestures, I found that they were trying to make a quilt from a pattern in a book, not in English either.  So with my phone and calculator I was able to let them know how many yards they would need to complete their project.  They were thrilled.  Both of them kissed me on both cheeks before they left.

The lady who owns the shop said that they had been there a couple of hours and she wasn't able to help them because she didn't speak their language.  I told her I don't either, I just know how to speak "Quilts".  You just never know.
