Another fabulous Pooches & Pickups Quilt AND another giveaway!

The sweet and very talented Nettie over at a quilt is nice, agreed to take a turn at showing off her piecing and quilting prowess with some Pooches and Pickups! Nettie's quilts and projects just speak to me, so I was super excited when she agreed to lend me a hand.

The thing that I find so wonderful about all of the quilts and projects that my blog buddies have created is how incredibly different they each are. Nettie's new Pand P quilt has such a fun sophistication to it that really hits home for me. I just can't take my eyes off it. For me, the counter balance of the youthful dogs and trucks paired with the wonky strips of stripes and dots is just so great. Then she's paired that with a really gorgeous charcoal grey tweed from Robert Kaufman for sashing/roads. Even though the quilt is packed with primary colors it just has a sense of softness to it. I just love it, don't you?!? cute are these adorable little toy trucks?

Zip on over to say hello to Nettie and leave a comment to win a FQ set of Pooches and Pickups. I just heart the story she shared about her own childhood pooch Scratches. :) She's drawing a winner this Sunday June 5 so off you go!
