Quilting Completed!The quilting was completed at 4 PM yesterday. This quilt measures 64.5" X 78.5"
The outer border is an adorable newspaper print in a dog theme.
There are 9 dogs illustrated, all belonging to my mother-in-law throughout her lifetime.
Detail of quilting motif, there are 735 doggie bones in assorted sizes.

I spent last evening designing an embroidered presentation label complete with paw prints and, of course, a doggie bone! I will include a photo of that after stitching it out.
Thanks for taking a look.

Life is Good!

Thanks, quiltkeemosabe and nancy! As you both know there's still much to complete as the end of the quilting certainly isn't the finish line; but there's such joy in celebrating the milestones along the way!

So are you having nightmares about dog bones yet?

Mrs. Goodneedle said...

Hey, Jim! No doggie-bone nightmares yet. Only sweet dreams all around.
