I was@going to show you the fabulous tiramisu we had for lunch .....but, you know. #quiltswissy #quiltsanddogs #tiramisuheaven
Well, well, well. Miss Bonnie is torturing me with chevrons. Someone actually suggested there might be MORE chevrons in our future. OMG! Sigh! I am about 70% done at this point. 😔 #goodfortunequilt #charlenemademedoit #quiltswissy #quiltsanddogs #nomorechevrons

It took a little work but I finally figured out a system. Now to make 2648 of them. You know........ #charlenemadeit #goodfortunequilt #quiltswissy #quiltsanddogs
Made corn chowder, one of my favorite soups, because it is supposed to be 28 tonight and it is freezing right now. #quiltswissy #quiltsanddogs #cornchowder #thanksgivingham
If all the toys we have, the best one is an empty tea jar with an old baby pacifier in it to make noise. You can put amazing things in this jar. And it makes your voice sound magical when you speak into it. #quiltsanddogs #quiltswissy #sawyerlovesgrandma
I was about to die laughing when Carrie posted this last night. Her caption read : when your dog runs away, and your mom makes him ride in the wagon as punishment and neither of you are happy. I have been in similar situations when Frank was out of town. Still almost died laughing. #quiltswissy #quiltsanddogs #mygrandchildren
My scraps are fraternizing. Geez....I hope this quilt is not a patriotic red white and blue one. When do we get to more colors, huh Bonnie? #quiltswissy #quiltsanddogs #goodfortunequilt
Finished with all my blue and white HSTs. FINALLY. I thought it would take LONG VAST amounts of time. But it went pretty quickly. Now I have to see if I have a ruler combination that will get me to the next step. GREEN. #quiltswissy #quiltsanddogs #goodfortunequilt #bonniehuntermysteryquilt #isitoveryet #charlenemademedoit
Whew! Finally done with all my blue and white HSTs. Frank helped me tear off a lot of papers so I guess I will have to give him credit for making the quilt. I am caught up. What? You mean another clue can out and I am already behind again? Aughhh! #playingcatchup #goodfortunequilt #lookslikepatriotcity #quiltsanddogs #quiltswissy #charlenemademedoit
I am about 45% complete here on step two with nearly 33% of the red/white four patches still to trim. I need to cut off dog ears on the blue/white HSTs yet. They just look so cute with the perky doggy ears! #runningoutofclips #mindblown #howmanywillcharleneget #quiltswissy #quiltsanddogs #quiltvillemystery #goodfortunequilt
Cousin Christmas time once again. Karen and I met at The Cabin in Burnside LA for a 3 hour lunch. We get together every so often and talk about family and dead people and dogs. We also answer questions such as what type of apocalyptic dystopia society is inevitable and will the dogs be zombies too? Usually this involves a certain Mr. Daniels or one of his friends. We are used to closing bars together. Our dads were brothers and used to do the same thing. #familytradition #quiltsandzombiedogs #quiltswissy #quiltsanddogs #cousinchristmas #vetkaren #zombiedogs #ilovemycousin
Not that I am finished trimming all my red and white fours, I just needed a change of pace. Opted to do an extended version of the magic 8 that gives me 12 in each pass. So I present to you.......da da da ta da da........the First Twelve !! (fanfare and lights please! ) #quiltswissy #quiltsanddogs #bonniehuntermystery #goodfortunequilt
The bonfires in southern Louisiana Cajun Country light the way for Papa Noel to come visit the children on Christmas night. Here the bonfire is lit and sure enough, Papa Noel comes bearing gifts! We all received satsumas grown on the Burden Property! #quiltsanddogs #quiltswissy #papanoel #louisianachristmas #cajuncountry #bonfire
Bonfire bringing in Papa Noel to Louisiana #quiltswissy #quiltsanddogs #papanoel
Hey are all made. Now they have to be trimmed. #quiltswissy #quiltsanddogs #bonniehuntermystery #goodfortunequilt
Factory Production Supervisor. I got called to the Supervisor’s Office. Apparently I need more training on the Quarter Inch Seam Production. #quiltswissy ##quiltsanddogs #bonniehunter #goodfortunequilt #quiltpeeps
Who says there’s no quilt police? I have 20% of them finished. And another 30% sewn but needs pressing and trimming. And another 20% ready to sew together to become four patches. #williteverend #charlenemademedoit #quiltswissy #quiltsanddogs #goodfortunequilt #bonniehuntermystery
Starbucks is not a happy place today! #quiltsanddogs #quiltswissy #canthearwhattheyaresaying
Roast beef poboy and sweet tea in south Louisiana! Nothing better anywhere. And it was $6.99. Can’t beat that with a stick! #KCGrill #quiltsanddogs #quiltswissy #southlouisianafood #heavenwithaheartattack
I mailed off over 80 of these four patch units to my friend Charlene today. She will be so excited to get them. I restarted from zero because I decided to change my color to red and white from red and beige. Now I have this group of 5 piles and two “jelly rolls”. #quiltswissy #quiltsanddogs #goodfortunequilt #fourpatchunits #charlenemademedoit
Dale found a beaver wandering around in our back area. you never know what will turn up there. But it is shocking to see a beaver! There is a small stream running thru so he can build dams. I call him Bob the Builder. The flood must have displaced him. Now what to do about him. #quiltsanddogs #quiltswissy #beaver #bobthebuilder #backyard
There’s just something about home made bread and butter pickles and home fried BBQ chips. And then the flight if BBQ Sauces come!!!! #areyoujealous #quiltswissy #quiltsanddogs #brq #triptosams #brusselssalad
A dear friend is doing the Bonnie Hunter Good Fortune quilt and she hit a snag. I made a freakin’ boatload of these four patch units for her to get started with. And in the process decided I wanted mine to be a white for the neutral as well so I will have to remake ALL the million I made that are red and beige. #lifeislikethat #quiltswissy #quiltsanddogs #goodfortunequilt #bonniehunter #quiltvillemystery
My sweet girl. 10 months old now. #puppylove #ilovemyblueheeler #quiltsanddogs
Another fall tree in southern Louisiana. We do have a number of trees that change into a mini fall glory. This one is by the hospital. I am seeing my retina specialist today. #quiltswissy #quiltsanddogs #fallinlouisiana #louisianafall
Bet you didn’t think trees changed colors here in southern Louisiana, right? #quiltswissy #quiltsanddogs #batonrouge #louisianafall
More piles, more four patches! Just a few more needed. #quiltswissy #quiltsanddogs #itscharlenesfault #bonniehunter #goodfortunequilt
Got my fabrics laid out for the Bonnie Hunter Mystery Kickoff. Although they kicked off without me last week, I am now caught up and can work on my 4739 four patches. Although Charlene assures me I only have to do 12 today. I will need more neutrals but I can pull those as I go along. #quiltswissy #quiltsanddogs #allcharlenesfault #bonniehunter #goodfortunequilt
Found the colors at Lowe’s for the Bonnie Hunter mystery. It looks like I’m going to have myself a quIlt of good fortune! To get it done I am joining @charmaboutyou for the #saturdaynightcraftalong #ItsCharlenesfault #quiltswissy #quiltsanddogs #bonniehunter #goodfortune
I was playing around with a new app a friend turned me on to. In fact it is the first and only app I have ever paid for. These are my green tomatoes! #quiltswissy #greentomatoes #quiltsanddogs #fragments #ineedalotofpractice
He couldn’t stay off the darn phone even when I was bathing him. Sigh—teenagers! 😂 flash forward to the future Mom #quiltswissy #quiltsanddogs #sawyer #bathtime
Green Tomato Jam on my morning croissant! Yes! #quiltswissy #quiltsanddogs #greentomatoes #jam #breakfastisgoodnow
One recipe said to strain and the other said not to strain. I was straining the bits out and taste tested a few of the bits —- OH MAMA !!! Gotta keep them in! #quiltswissy #quiltsanddogs #cookingexperiment #greentomatoes #jam
Right or wrong, I added a couple of my red cherry tomatoes into the pot. I wanted a splash of color. Just like any decent quilter would, right? #quiltswissy #quiltsanddogs #greentomatoes #cookingexperiment #jam
Step two in Green Tomato Jam. #quiltswissy #quiltsanddogs #greentomatoes #jam
As I suspected would happen, Carrie’s tomato plants did not like the freezing temps for the last few days. She brought me a grouplet of green tomatoes to experiment with. #quiltswissy #quiltsanddogs #greentomatoes #cookingexperiments

This really is what happens at my house. #quiltswissy #quiltsanddogs #dinozzo #jibjab
Just as mom snapped the picture, thunder suddenly struck somewhere in the city and I alerted to the immediate danger. #quiltswissy #quiltsanddogs #dinozzo #bestsdog #doesnoteatcasseroles
Dog for sale. Cheap. 15 minutes before we were to walk out, McGee dumped the 12 serving potatoes au gratin in the floor. It was cooling in the stove. I made it from@scratch with 3 lbs of potatoes And cheddar mixed with gruyere cheese. We were heading to Monika’s house and that was my side dish. #quiltswissy #quiltsanddogs #madashell #mcgeeistoast #notspeaking
Fire and water...and wine! Where’s Barb? #quiltswissy #quiltsanddogs #firepit
LL Cool S gets a Wagon ride from Papa! #bestgrandpapaever #wagonride #quiltswissy #quiltsanddogs #LLCoolS
Went over to Carrie’s today to take Sawyer on his wagon ride and she was working In Her Garden thinning the lettuce seedlings. I took the culled members and planted them in my empty herb garden spaces. A double win for today!!! #bestgrandparentsever #lettucebabies #gardensalad #quiltswissy #quiltsanddogs

I am on a Swamp tour this morning in Laplace LA. Just Down the road from Baton Rouge about 25 miles before New Orleans. My mom used to live next road over from the swamp. This is the first thing we see. Oh yeah. Like I am gonna turn my back on a gator. #dontturnyourbackonagator #gator #swampgirl #quiltswissy #quiltsanddogs

Week 8 of the #ModernFansSA ✅ This was my first time chain piecing rows and it was super fast. This is a great way to stay organized! It is also super awesome to be able to see what the finished top will look like! Side note, can you spot the @elliegator_basset ? She always need to be the center of attention 🐶 . . . #suzyquiltspatterns #modernfanssa #modern #quilt #quilting #dogsandquilts #quiltsanddogs #basset #bassethound #fall #chainpiecing
This is a quilt top from long ago. See the Greater Swiss mountain Dog in the mountains with the morning sky? #fms_morningsky #quiltswissy #quiltsanddogs #OMGaUFO #greaterswissmountaindog #onlyaquilterwouldunderstand
Ok Seattle peeps. We will be in the area of Lakeland visiting our nephew for a few days and need to know how the weather will affect the out of doors stuff. And what do you suggest. We should have about 4 days for things. Last time we did the Ferris wheel area and the aquarium. It rained for the next two days at Diablo Dam and that Bridge over the fast flowing tidal bay. Can’t remember the name and my pics were all lost in the flood #quiltswissy #quiltsanddogs #seattletrip #shannon #cantwaittoseeyou
Even my pop tart celebrates Halloween today.......#quiltswissy #quiltsanddogs #halloweenpoptart #boo

What a day! Kicking back on the patio with an Abita Beer and Southern Living Mags to plan a Friendsgiving. #quiltswissy #quiltsanddogs #friendsgiving ##abitabrewery #friends #turkeypotpie #aminuts #mosquitosonhalloween
Spent the day at the CAAWS building making some dog houses with Mathilde and Frank. I caulked and painted. Frank and Mathilde, and later Cathy joined us, roofed the group of 9 houses. These will be sold as a fundraiser for the Cat Program. #quiltswissy #quiltsanddogs #caawsbr #caaws #caawsbrcat #gotpainteverywhere #toooldtodothis
(Yes I have a Book piece in here!) The Contemporary Fiber Artists of Louisiana (CFAL) will be featured in an exhibit at the Baton Rouge Bluebonnet Branch Library, showcasing fiber works inspired by memorable books chosen by the artists. “For the Love of Books” is designed to travel to libraries throughout Louisiana, showcasing the creative work of modern fiber artists while also encouraging the public to reflect on the value of books in our lives. CFAL members practice a wide variety of art disciplines, including creating art quilts, embroidery, weaving, digital fiber arts, crochet and knitting, rug hooking, doll making and structural fiber arts with 3-D construction, jewelry with fiber elements, beading, and general surface design and embellishment. The group regularly sponsors low-cost classes and workshops on a broad range of topics, and CFAL welcomes fiber enthusiasts at all stages of their development, from beginner to professional.

Frank can’t take a decent photograph because his hands were shaking with terror #quiltswissy #quiltsanddogs #halloween #terror
There’s that pesky pacifier. We went to the corn maze yesterday with a cranky baby. But *I* enjoyed myself. Up till I stepped ankle deep in a mud hole! #peskypacifier #sawyer #quiltswissy #quiltsanddogs #cornmaze
