Simple quilts

I’ve mentioned before that I love simple scrap quilts. Another eBay quilt inspired this RWB Hourglass – of course I’ll make it scrappy when I eventually get around to it.


And in case you’re wondering why I’m spending so much time looking at quilts on eBay, Chesty’s allergies are giving him a fit and I’m having to spend time sitting with him to keep him from scratching himself to death. At least the cone stops the biting.

  • Poor Chesty! I know how he feels.

    I think this design will be perfect done in scrappy mode. I’ve used this little block in the past to use up scraps and have started collecting some leftover half square triangles again.

  • Ohhh, poor baby–I can commiserate with those allergies–they are bad this year. We are calling it the “Year of Allegra” :-((

    Good tip to look for patterns…thanks Mary

  • Poor Chesty. I just want to reach out and give him a hug. Isn’t there some medication he could have for his allergies?

  • Poor Chesty. What do you feed him? We changed our food to a non-corn based product and were amazed at how much better our dog acted/felt.

  • Dee Dee:

    We give our dog Benadryl once a day and it really helps. Also small dogs, we have Havanese, can be allergic to chicken. Chesty looks so sad with that cone on.

    I’m sure Chesty feels much better when he gets to sit on such a lovely quilt! 🙂

  • debra:

    oh no, not the cone of shame. Poor Chesty. He still looks cute sitting on that lovely quilt.

  • Aw, poor little Chesty!!! Spring can be a pita! You’re a good Mom to spend the time with him to keep him distracted from his misery!!

  • That would make a wonderful scrappy quilt! Poor Chesty, can you give him medicine for it? I know I had to go out and buy a new bottle of Allegra for myself.
