So I've officially finished my first quilt! WHOOHOO
It's a small quilt for my dog. Since it's starting to get cold around here, I thought he might like a blanket to snuggle up with when the house gets cold (we don't really turn our heat on). Usually we just get him a piece of fleece, but I felt like doing something a bit more special. I used the Disappearing Scraps Quilt pattern from Rubyru on Etsy. It's a great pattern with really clear instructions. The fabric was just a few off white fat quarters I had mixed with a ton of Batik fabric charm squares. The pictures are kind of crappy I tried to take some outside, but it was really windy and a bit too sunny, and then the ones inside were only slightly better.

Here's Jay with his quilt. (He refuses to look at the camera)

And here's the quilt all laid out. I cut the pattern down to about 24" square, since it's just for a dog not a child.

And here's the photo of my beautiful binding and machine quilting.

Here's the link to the pattern if you'd like to try it out yourself.

He certainly deserves a beautiful quilt, he's adorable--those teeth and those little legs are killing me! I'm overwhelmed by the cuteness of the dog!  Grin But yes, it is also a rather nice quilt, and I love the fabric you chose.

That is a very pretty quilt! Nice work!

And your dog refusing to look at the camera made me laugh, what an attitude for a little dog!  Cheesy

That turned out really well - and so much more beautiful than a piece of fleece!  Smiley

Kudos to you for finishing your first quilt!  I am a semi-experienced quilter and I always counsel new quilters to start with a
small quilt first - so many of them decide to attempt a large project and get stalled or bored before finishing. I love how the batiks "pop" against the white fat quarters. 

I wish you many happy, creative hours in your future quilt-making! Roll Eyes
