Almost Quilting...

Today I dragged myself out of the house and went to "mini-retreat" that my guild holds two or three times a year. Didn't stay long but I did at least get out of the house and almost quilted!
Also, I got to see my birthday quilt blocks all put together into a quilt top! Lots of scottie dogs and tea cups, red sox, patriotic, moda and Mary Englebreit. (There is even a block with the house I lived in while in England!) It is a fun quilt!
Some other folks were working on the guild's next donation quilt. It is a patriotic quilt and is looking good!

Dobby is now officially the big cat in the house...he outweighs Goldie by 4 ounces and is just slightly taller...I am afraid by the time he finishes growing he will be bigger than Macbeth my Scottish terrier (I think Mac is a bit concerned too!)

oh my gosh the guilds patriotic quilt is just gorgeous!! And Dobby is so handsome and getting so big. If he's like my two cats you'll have a 15 pounder in no time. My poor little dog is only 20 pounds, so she barely outweighs them, and they have enough attitude to show her whose boss sometimes too.

Love all the scotties on your quilt... and the house from England is very cool! I love Mary Engelbreit fabrics!

The patriotic quilt is going to be beautiful... and that is one handsome kitty!

What a treasure that birthday quilt is! And I also love the patriotic quilt. Almost quilting is always better than no quilting at all!!

He even looks as if he is challenging you while you are taking his picture.
Definately the KING of the house!

I LOVE that new raffle quilt. And Dobby looks a bit intimidating in that photo--HA! Glad you were able to get out.

Love your birthday quilt. Did the guild members make the blocks for you? I have a standard poodle and our "little" cat rules her except if she gets on the dogs bed, then the dog speaks up. Don't you just love em?

Even the sewing machine has a Scotty dog on it. Cute.

Mac should be afraid. Very afraid. Darling cat.

Our big 24 pound black cat could take out most dogs. But he was such a great daddy cat to the kittens we fostered(and ended up keeping.

The quilts are quite wonderful.
