A wee quilt crafted quickly for a wee dog.  



A new binding technique for me.  I felt it was OK because this is a quilt for a dog.  I can see how it might be cool on an art quilt or ATC, but I probably wouldn't ever use it on a people quilt.  

This is made from scraps and muslin. It has a pieced cotton batting. Machine pieced.  FMQ.  Zigzag binding.  I didn't measure before the pupply claimed it but it is probably about 20 x 30 inches. 

More pics and the story on my blog.

Thanks Mare.  It was certainly fast and easy for this application.  If I'd had more time, I would have stitched again over the raw edge.  I might consider cutting first and then stitching.  I'm not sure.  There are definitely errors in it, but I figured if it was too bad I'd put a regular binding over it.
