Here is my first ever competed quilt! I made for my dog Trey. It's pretty small, just under 30"X30" and reversible with the same pattern on back as on the front. It's a green and blue plaid woven material and a navy cotton with green, blue and grey neckties. Both fabrics have been in my stash for years. I used some fleece I picked up for $1 per yard as my batting.

Here is the finished side (with Trey on the chair below):


And the rag side:

Rag quilts are one of my favorites! I like the color combination you used. Perfect for a little doggie guy.  Cool
