Yeah! I did it again!

I had an unexpected telephone call yesterday as my friend Sonja had a day off work and called to see if we could get together for tea and some stitching. Well, of course, I said yes and she came over for the afternoon. I wanted to get my latest UFO finished and finish it I did!

I had my trusty quilt tester helping out. Dagi not only tests the quilts but supervises my work. Sonja ran upstairs for my camera and took a photo of my helper. I mentioned while she was doing this that normally I would have already thought of a name for the quilt but had not so far. Then we thought since Dagi was sitting on the corner of the quilt and this quilt block is called "Puss in the Corner", well just wait and see...




I machine quilted this one. To me it still feels like I am cheating even though I know the machine does not work without me there guiding the quilt along, but still. I am however enjoying the fact that I can reduce my UFOs. I am back to a project by hand this weekend so that will help me feel better perhaps. *grins*


I found this fabric in my stash cupboard that was large enough to use for the backing. Today I am working on the label so here it is...


I am calling the quilt "My Puss in the Corner: Dagi's Flower Garden". Do you think Mr. Dagi approves?

Have a creative weekend and I hope to share another finish when I return from Cranberry Cottage.

Hi, Heidi! The quilt is a charmer...it is sooo lovely! And so is Dagi :o) The new banner here is beautiful too, btw! Happy weekend, my friend ((HUGS))

Gefeliciteerd met weer een voltooide UFO. Dagi kan heel trots zijn op "zijn" (of is het "haar") quilt. Het quiltwerk is dan wel machinaal gedaan maar het is zoooooooo netjes! Heel knap hoor want meestal komen er plooitjes aan de achterkant. Veel succes dit weekend met je volgende project. Mijn handwerk ligt nog steeds stil. Ik kan bijna geen behang meer zien! Liefs, Elly

Hallo Heidi, wat heb je er een mooi label voor gemaakt! De kat lijkt echt op een kat! En de naam is perfect. Mijn poppetjes hebben gisterenavond hoofdjes gekregen, zoals ik had beloofd. De vogels zijn zelfs al half geborduurd. Het gaat dus goed. Fijn weekend gewenst in CC. groetjes Sonja

Ik ben al helemaal verliefd op je kat (laat die van mij het maar niet horen) en je quilt ziet er echt super uit. Fijn weekend vanuit Groningen.

Mandie and I are sitting together, watching Mary Poppins with Zoe while I am looking at some blogs. Mandie says, you need to finish Zoe's quilt. Hope you have fun at the cottage. I love the cat you drew, and boy does Mr. Dagi look oh so content.
Love you, Mom

Heidi, I love the quilt and I think you selected the perfect name. Dagi looks quite pleased with himself for inspiring you :) You've been doing so well this year getting those WIPs finished. I'm envious, lol. I also wish I had someone to come over and stitch with me. That's always so much fun.
Autumn hugs, Joanne

Linda said...

Have a happy time at Cranberry Cottage....hugs, Linda

Congratulations on getting another one ticked off the WIP Heidi.
That is a beautiful little quilt and aptly named. The label is charming.
I like your new blog header. I have a couple of those chunky type bobbins that a friend brought back from Malta for me.
As always a very enjoyable visit to your blog.

Hi,
We are on a roller coaster of finishing UFO's and WIP's.
Feels good, don't you think?
The only downside is that I already have ideas for new projects. But first I have to finish the other UFO's.
And I know Eric is your brother.

What a fun name for the quilt. It is absolutely sweet.
I like the Beatrix Potter piece you are doing...that's quite a stitch.

Lucy said...

Prachtig!! Heidi, de quilt en het label allebei zijn ze mooi!

Kristen said...

Very nice as usual!! I love the colors!!!

Terri said...

The fabric on the back is perfect for that quilt!

Does the quilt still have the same name when Dagi isn't there? LOL

Christine said...

Another beautiful Heidi quilt or should I say Dagi quillt as it looks like he claimed it!. Love the fabrics. You did an awesome job with your machine quilting.

Sweet Cottage Dreams said...

Awww...a quilt in honor of Mr. Dagi!!! That is so very sweet, Heidi, and he looks quite handsome sitting regally on HIS quilt. Beautiful work my friend, gorgeous!!

Nothing is better than sharing a cup of tea and doing something creative with a good friend.
