Inchies Swap

Last summer was the deadline for this inchie swap. Participants were ArtFiberFest attendees, and we were asked to send ours to Marylin Huskamp ahead of time.


Just in case you don’t know what an “inchie” is- it’s basically a 1 inch quilt. I wrote about creating mine last summer here.

Anyway, Marylin did a fantastic job of putting them all together into. Here are the inchies in the house holder and on their own:

I love how these turned out. This was a fun swap to participate in. Thanks to MaryLin for her hard work!  (in case anyone was curious, mine is in the middle of the 2nd row with a birdie on it).

Enjoy your weekend! Hugs, Carla

PS: Rex the Wonderhound had the foxtail removed and now I have to give him antibiotics. Rex is wise to the ways of human hiding pills in food, so I have switched to hiding the pills in hot dogs. So far, owner 1, Rex, 0!!!

  1. Hotdogs…the only way to go. My dogs can lick the cheese off the pill and spit it out. Hot dogs…1 gulp and they are gone!
    Your inchies are so cute!

  2. Jamisc, had to laugh, the first one I gave him he was highly suspicious. He even spit it out. I decided to just walk away and he picked it back up and chewed. The next 3 were only hot dogs, too. I snuck the pill in the 4th piece!

  3. Oh Carla, hot dogs are the only way to go (do you know how slimie your hand gets when you try to put it in the corner of there mouth). Yup the way to go is piece number two or three. We usually don’t eat hot dogs at our home, so when we had a pet in the house we called them “Beaudogs”.

    Those inchies look very interesting….brings a whole new concept to the Minature catagory at the quilt shows. A completed project with the inchies might be a good canidate for that catagory.

  4. LOL! Rex the Wonderhound is a smart dog! I love that fellah!

    Love the inchies too! I sure wish you’d come to Houston with me. 😦

    P.S. I’ve score a very cool birthday gift for you already. I have my ways, Obie Wan Kanobe! lol

  5. OK – obviously the foxtail is not what I was thinking – literally the tail of a fox. Is it some kind of burr/spiny thing? Poor Rex!

  6. Yes, it is a weed that attaches to an animal’s hair, then will corkscrew up the hair shaft and enter the animal’s skin. Left alone, it can kill a pet. This year, Rex has somehow found at least a dozen foxtail. The vet even said it was not foxtail season!
