This quilt was supposed to be for a gift, but I accidentally used two colors of white for the sashing. Didn't realize until it was pretty much put together, so I finished it for our dog instead. Smiley

Finished dimensions: 29"x39", made with scraps, and free motion quilted.

Front...


And back.

It's just the right size to keep her warm while she dozes away the day. She sleeps on it from time to time, and hasn't tried to eat it yet, so I consider the project a smashing success!

That is one lucky dog!  Beautiful job!  Is there any ... can't think of the word ... stuffing in it?

Yes, it has a nice cotton batting in the middle. Warm, but not *too* warm.

As Iggy Pop once sang, "I wanna be your dog".

This is a beautiful quilt- white sash be darned!!! I'm sure your pupster is worthy of this, but I love it too!!!

Great colors and patterns. I am sure that whoever was the intended recipient would have loved it, too!

If I had made the mistake with the whites, I don't know if I even would have finished it - it's a good thing you did, though, because it looks great!
