What a beautiful quilt! I love the diagonal design and the texture of it. Who cares about wrinkles? I think we've all been there, done that, and no one really knows to look for 'em unless you point them out in the first place. Great job!

Thank you all for the wonderful comments! I don't know the name of the fabric line; I got the jelly roll from JoAnns in the quilting section. They had it as a roll or a fat quarter packet. As for the label, I just made it in a similar style with some scraps I had leftover, then used my machine to embroider the information.

This is my fourth quilt. I made this as a gift for my friend Stefanie. Made from one jelly roll and some plain white fabric. The backing is one of the fabrics from the jelly roll. The pattern was modified from one featured in a quilting magazine.

The front:

The back:

The label (for Stefanie Jan. 2011 from Brandy):

This was my first time making and using a quilt label, and I was really excited, before realizing I probably shouldn't have pieced it into the backing but sewn it on after quilting. Ah well, I learn something new with every quilt  Wink

Thank you everyone! My Aunt loved it (whew!). As for the pattern, I just drew it out on graph paper first, and hoped they'd still look like owls once they were sewn, ha ha!

I promised my Aunt I'd make her a quilt this Christmas, and I'm really proud of this one. This is my 3rd completed quilt, and even though there are still plenty of mistakes, there are definitely less than the first two attempts, so I'm learning at least.  Roll Eyes

My aunt likes owls, and she and her husband own a pair of Harleys and ride up and down the East Coast all the time. I wanted to incorporate both interests into her quilt so this is what I came up with:

The backing is the same as the binding:

Detail of the Harley owl:

Detail of one of the normal owls:

I hope she likes it! I'll find out on Thursday when I drive down to visit. Smiley

UPDATE: She loves it! Woo hoo! And I'm so excited my humble little project made the front page!  Grin (happy dance) Thank you!

This is super cool! I was using plain cereal and poptarts boxes cut in half for my snakes, but this makes me want to make them a custom hide with their names and the like on it.  Smiley Very nicely done!

Good point!  One piece would be hard to stuff into the cover!! I know on my chair cushions I use batting around the foam to even out the lumps...but for a dog, I don't think it matters to them! Cheesy

Again, thanks for the info...you did a wonderful job!  My dog will also thank you if I can make him a new bed for the 2011! Cheesy

Thanks! Yeah, I probably could have taken extra time to trim the foam edges a little more, or mush in some polyfil, but I figured Sam's big butt would do the evening-out for me over time.  Grin

Oh, what a pretty boy!!

Also, great idea! I'd totally steal your idea if it wouldn't be pointless. We have a freakin' couch in our room, and only one of our three dogs actually sleeps on it. One prefers laying with his body on a pillow and his head on the floor, and the oldest won't give up curling up with the pile of shoes at the end of the bed. Sigh. Too bad, this bed looks great. Smiley

Thank you! Marcus, the little dog in the last picture, likes to lay all stretched out with his head hanging off of something. He's a weird kid. Sam, on the other hand, prefers to lay anywhere cushy, and his old bed was just not up to the challenge of a rhino sleeping on it  Wink
