Midweek Makers #399

Welcome to Midweek Makers! It's now September, which means we're at the start of fall and back to school!

For a few years, our family was done with official schooling. But now we're right back in it as my younger son, the one I refer to as Seafarer, is officially a med student. Having applied three times, he's finally in and on his way to being an MD. So school is once more in our lives, which is a good thing as one should never stop learning!

The National Dog Day party was last week, so we need to congratulate the winners of the giveaways. But first, some of the fun answers to the questions. Regarding coats, most said no, but one entry about how the dogs would rather eat them off each other made me laugh!

Almost all of you don't have dog houses, as a lots of the pups are indoors, and most happily chewing on Nyla bones. Lucky dogs!

And now the winners! Emmalee gets some new friends with the Puppy Tales quilt block, Cathy's pet now has a home with the Dog House block, and Susan will be everyone's favorite, handing out treats with the Dog Bone block! Congrats!

Now some features from last week.

Grace and Peace completed three quilts she pieced on a road trip,

Patchouli Moon shared this super adorable iron caddy,

and A Scrappy Quilter finished an RSC quilt.

Come join this week's party!
