Helpers are always welcome, even when you didn't know you needed one.
 I just have final borders to stitch onto the Turnstile top.  I spread it out on the floor  to double check that all the blocks are oriented correctly  . . . . just in case.  Then I went to make the bed.  When I got back I found Larkin holding the top down.  What if a rogue breeze blew through and carried the top away?

She is such a wonderful helper, lol.
My kitties are like that, the minute I put down a project, they are on top of it.

Today we are waiting for the plumber, a leak outside so not good.

Hi, All my dogs have always loved curling up on a quilt, especially if it is in my lap and I'm stitching.
Love your quilt but love your dog more. I'm a die hard dog lover.
hugs, Noreen

That's so cute! My dogs both claim anything I put on the floor. When I scoot them off, Charlie will come back and put one foot on it...lol!

Thanks for sharing your beautiful work! Cheery wave from

So cute! Rose thinks anything put down on the floor is hers to use as she sees fit - especially quilts!

Larkin is beautiful....and so is the top!

Always good to have a holder-downer when those random wind gusts arrive. The one I have is priceless!
BTW - Nice borders ;-)

What a great helper! Can't have a quilt that's not "puppy approved"

My favorite kind of helper. I don't know how I would survive without my doggies. Love 'em!

Did you know that you have an excellent sense of humor?

I'm a new viewer of your blog and I find it a very happy place...love how you keep your topics upbeat. Anyway, I'm a dog lover and as soon as I saw this shot of your pup on a quilt I knew...she wants to be close to what you have had in your hands. I loved this quilt top so much I went looking at Fat Quarter Shop for a pattern. Sadly, the one that comes up with that pattern name is a different design. I'll keep looking for it. BTW, your punctuation is much better than mine!!!
