A State of Grace puzzle goes together!

The puzzle is a finished quilt top! The quilt is called State of Grace on the pattern and it is a finished quilt top now. I love how the pattern made the pinwheels.The fabric is Shangri-la by 3 Sisters for Moda. I used a jelly roll and yardage to make the quilt top.

Yesterday I lost a good friend--our little white dog, Cleo, a bichon friche, died. He was 18 years old and lived a long, happy life. Thank you Cleo, for many happy times and lots of good memories. The picture shows him under a quilt, what else?-- ready to take a nap! (That's Buster, the black poodle beside him.)

Let quilting help you make someone smile!

Jan, your quilt is beautiful I love how it looks scrappy even though it really isn't.

You have my deepest sympathy on the loss of your dear furbaby. I hope you can find comfort in the many happy memories you have of your time together.

Jan, I'm so sorry about Cleo. I know how badly it hurts. Just this morning while she was cutting my hair, my hairdresser told me the same news about her dog. Pets are such wonderful friends and so hard to lose.----I love your puzzle quilt! The fabrics are great--I am really drawn to them, too.

I am so sorry about your little friend. I know how sad it can be to lose a pet. 18 years is a long time to serve as a companion...I am sure he is in a special puppy place!

The quilt is wonderful Jan!!!
