My design Wall

I was going to wait until I had 50 more squares to show but working at night is not always the smartest thing to do especially on a hot, humid day.   So here they are, all 49 of them..only 47 left to do and then I can start putting the top together.
Today I got to one of my favourite quilt shops and bought the fabric I want to use as cornerstones and sashing. The cornerstones will be  a medium navy and the  sashing will be a beige tone on tone...no adventurous spirit here....traditional and bland all the way.

Tigger is a high energy Sheltie...needing lots of exercise and on most days she gets it fetching a tennis ball , however, on days like today and since she hasn't got enough sense to know when to quit we won't take her out for her daily runs. As a result she demands a run on the treadmill. We set her pace at a pretty fast clip and away she goes...once she has found her rhythm, she loves it. I watched Cesar with his dog therapy and realized it was the perfect exercise for our little girl.  Plus, we can say, without telling a lie,  the treadmill gets lots of use...

I love the lady bug block! This is really coming along!

Tigger is a cutie on the treadmill. When I get on my treadmill, my puppy watches and acts like she want to get on. I am sure she will one day - she could use the extra exercise!

Lol...so the treadmill gets a lot of use does it....that is a good way for her to get her walking in...I use to have a treadmill that didn't get lots of use so I got rid of it now wish I had it back. Trish

Those squares are great. I especially love the letters. It will be one awesome quilt when it is all done! Also, that is hilarious that your dog runs on the treadmill. So cute!
