Thanks,everyone for your kind feedback. I've collected vintage laces and the lace I'm using on the square is from my collection. I will be adding some silk roses to the hat if that's OK, Julie. Until I get my sewing machine,probably the only other thing I'll do is fuse the pieces together on the background. I said I wanted to get my square done early-it just depends on when I get my machine as to when it will be finished. I wanted a shabby chic type of look and I'm with you, Marj, I would love to have a Havanese shabby chic quilt (I'd probably buy 100 tickets myself to try to win it!!!!).

Ann- I know how you feel. I also felt (still feel) very intimidated as I've never done this before. Read the tutorials (several times,like me!!). Go to the HRI website and look at all the different quilt squares from past years (lots to look at). Go to some quilt stores and ask a million questions (like I did). Get their help with selecting fabrics that will work together. I brought my sketch, told them I wanted shabby chic type fabrics, and the colors I wanted to use. I picked a couple of fabrics and they made suggestions for the rest. I drew a sketch that used large pieces and not a whole lot of them(minimize my non existent sewing skills). If I can do it -YOU CAN,TOO!!!!!!!!!!!!

Jocelyn,

Could you re-post your link to the tutorial in the Hats Off thread? I'd love people to be able to see it.

Thanks-
Julie

Jocelyn, I love your block. It is beautiful, and I only wish I could work that fast. I am still looking at fabric, and driving myself crazy about all the choices. You did a great job.

Peace, Love & Havanese

In case someone's interested, we talked about using coloring book images for your block, as inspiration. We mentioned it in the first page or two of this thread so it's way back there. here's a good site for starters: http://www.coloring.ws/dogs.htm

I often get ideas from google.com/images, but I love to work from photos of my own Havs as well, to really get an idea as to how they move, how they sit and stand.

I hope you all have your ideas/inspiration ready for your quilt block(s). I know you are all busy with the Christmas Holiday coming up,but I do want to remind you all that quilt blocks are due to me Feb.1st. It will be coming upon us quickly after the Holidays and I don't want you scrambling the last possible minute. Hurrying is your worst enemy and the process is not enjoyable that way. If you are having trouble please let me know.....
