Nickel Dog Quilt Finished!
I finally finished (I think) the Doggie quilt! It is the first time I have actually quilted an entire quilt, the first time I have used a pattern, and the first time I have actually added binding.
Since this is a quilt of dogs, I felt obligated to include a shot of Gigi checking out the quilt.
Yes, she has a t-shirt on. It is currently 42 degrees here at 6:00 when I took the picture. It was 38 when I woke up and raining/snowing-when is summer going to be here? I quilted around each of those 36 dogs in the ditch and around all the borders. I used Moda's "Strawberry Lemonade" and "Brights". I think I want to keep it. For Nat-Yes, that is gigirina.
I have a couple of dogs that didn't make the cut and I can't decide if I should make them into an accompanying bag or pillows-what do you think people who read my blog?
