Happy Home Review!!!! It's a Doggy Bed!!

Happy Home with some Crazy Love
Clover on her new bed, she loves it!

A bunch of us Jennifer Paganelli fanatics fans are taking turns making something wonderful from Jennifer's book Happy Home.   I was thrilled that I was asked to participate in this blogfest since I love everything Sisboom!!!   I seriously do!!   There are so many fun ideas in her book for your home, it was hard for me to decide.  I finally decided upon the adorable doggy bed.  Who am I kidding,  I've been wanting to make this for awhile and this was a nice kick in the pants for me to get it done!!!

I used all Crazy Love fabrics by Jennifer of course!    I love this line, it makes me SO happy.   I already have pillows made from this fabric in my bedroom, and since this will be in my bedroom it made perfect sense!!   The directions were SUPER easy!  I am a quilter, but followed the directions as they were written, just so I could say I did!  I am really TERRIBLE at following directions and prefer to make up my own.  I can honestly say these directions are easy and I had no problem figuring them out!!  

Here's a picture of George on HIS bed.  Isn't he adorable?   I think Clover secretly has a crush on him.  Who can blame her, he's very handsome!!!

I'm including a list of all the participants.  Even if it's past their show date,  I encourage you to check out their blogs.  These ladies are incredibly talented!!

Whole Cloth Quilts for....Bari!!!

I'm leaving tomorrow for the lovely beaches at San Diego!  I am a lucky girl, and am so excited. It's been a little crazy around here with graduation ceremonies, parties and getting ready for the beach.   So...I am really happy to have some down time with the family and friends.  I have two books, my beach shoes, a little stitchery I hope to actually work on, and big plans to relax!  

I am SERIOUSLY in love with this grey!!! And the blue...and well you get the picture!

The colors are amazing, and the clocks to die for!!!

All of them folded over!

I  realized I never mentioned a few quilts I had the pleasure to make for Bari J. Ackerman's booth did I?  silly me!   I met Bari through Jona, of course!   She is a LOT of fun!  And sooooo talented!!!  She asked me to make a few whole cloth quilts for her booth, and I was happy to oblige!    I am also happy to say her booth won first place at quilt market!  whoo hoo!!!!   Thank you Bari for including me!!!
