Just freakin' awesome! Absolutely made me actually laugh out loud and spill my coffee - Great job on a great piece!

This is a really cute quilt! Your edges are so well done! I like this pattern, what size are the squares? If you don 't mind sharing your technique...

Thanks! I *think* the before-sewing squares were 8.5"x 8.5"... After, maybe 8.25"? Silly me, I didn't plan out my pattern before buying fabric, just went crazy and thought, "Hm, a yard and a half each should be plenty." Or something like that. Then once I figured out what I wanted to do pattern-wise I had to finagle the size of the squares to make it work. I originally wanted them 9x9 but I know that didn't happen.  Smiley  I had 2 squares of each color left at the end and felt pretty proud of myself for squeeking by with that much.
The edges are just the backing fleece pulled to the front and sewn under, nothing too fancy but I liked the way it looked.
Happy Wednesday!

I really like the super-vibrant fabric in the first pic.  Did you use a pattern for the wallet?

the wallet is from the tute posted by hdoglovesyou -> https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=20925.0

Sizing is based on the dog's length from base of neck to base of tail  - XS 11", S 16", M 21", and L 26". I suppose you could try copying and blowing up the pattern to make it the right length for your dog if s/he is bigger than that?

Since all of my friends are having babies...
Used fabric from my stash so these were free, besides the pattern I got on sale for 99cents.
The pattern itself was very easy to follow and I'm sure I'll make more in the future. Can't speak to fit yet since haven't gotten to try them on any babies yet but they look like they should work. Great way to use up scrap knits.

6  HOME SWEET HOME / Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects / butterick 4885 dog coat on: February 27, 2011 12:35:15 PM
Made for my aunt's sweet dog-babies. (She sewed so many little dresses for me when I was little just felt like needed to repay the kindness with a couple of coats for her furry kids.) Used fabric, thread, & velcro from my stash so project just cost the price of the pattern, which was bought on sale for 99 cents I believe.
Butterick pattern 4885 was very easy to follow, nothing too difficult. I did leave off the little pockets on view C since I wanted it to be reversible and I did not use the suggested faux fur lining for the same reason. The belly straps were much too long for my aunt's skinny dogs (both Havanese breed, a type of Bichon) so ended up shortening them a bit but otherwise fit well.
Was very tempted to sew a letter on the back of each so it looked more like a cape than a jacket but restrained myself. Might have to make another of these for my littlest Sheltie and add a letter just so I can have a superdog! Smiley

Didn't get pics of the other sides - was a black and white houndstooth so they have matching jackets when it's turned to that side. Besides, it made me laugh to use houndstooth on dog jackets
7  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / clutches and wallet on: February 27, 2011 12:22:36 PM
used up some scraps to make new clutches (for me and to give as gifts) and a wallet (since my last one was falling apart).
Clutches are just basic zippered bags with a handle and the wallet is from the tute posted by hdogloves you -> https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=20925.0
Didn't buy anything to make these, just got zippers and snaps from stash. Used the fancy stitching my mum's Brother machine does to add interest.

These are a great way to use up scraps of fabric since doesn't take much to make a lined bag... Great for those bits I just cannot toss but don't have enough to do anything else with realistically.

For a friend who just had a baby girl. The top is flannel and the bottom is fleece so very warm. Tied with crochet string. Pattern is my own but so simple that it's probably been done before by someone else.

9  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / kids half apron with crocheted lace on: February 27, 2011 12:05:44 PM
Made for my 7 yo Goddaughter for Christmas since she's learning to cook (and it went well with the kids cookbook I got her). Sized bigger than she needs so can grow into it. Used yellow gingham left over from some ancient project and crocheted the lace for the bottom from garage sale string from my grandma so this project was free! Yay for stash-busting!

Awesome! Great work! Would you mind sharing where you found the pattern? (My grandma collects all things chicken - stuffies, figurines, quilts, wall hangings, dishes, calendars, anything & everything chicken related! She'd love me to make her one like yours!)
