It is a flimsy!

YAY!  Not much time to sew today as there was lots of MUM's TAXI duties but I had just enough time to get the borders made and then get them on the top.  There is a quiet satisfaction in bringing a quilt to this stage isn't there but when I am making a quilt for a specific person the whole time I am making it, no matter who it is for, I am envisioning myself giving to them!  That is always my favourite part of making a quilt and I get SO MUCH PLEASURE from actually giving a quilt that I have especially made for.   I won't be giving this one away in a hurry :-) but it will be worth waiting for.

This is the border fabric and I have enough leftover to put some on the back too.  That will require some piecing but I am hoping to have some fun with it!  I based the whole quilt around this fabric as I think it will be meaningful to the recipient - but I can't say more!
 And now for some pictures of two of the world's most spoilt dogs - because someone said to me today "more photos of Snickers and Maisy please".  Just don't tell Snickers this is a command performance - she is DIVA enough as it is!  This spot is just outside the kitchen and Snickers usually lies down but I was chopping up chicken!  She is sitting very hopefully!
You woke me for that?
 This dog likes to snuggle!
And she also knows how to S-T-R-E-T-C-H
  Ahhh life is tough!
 But of course Maisy will always be my (shhhh) favourite girl.  She is the one that wags her tail as soon as she hears your voice!  
 I mean look at that face!!!!
 She is saying "Mum I am really tired, can I go to sleep now?"
 "Night Mum!"
Till next time...............happy stitching!

  7. Your quilt turned out beautifully! Have fun giving it to the intended person. I'm with you, that's the best part of making a quilt!

  8. Love the landscape fabric. Is it a surprise gift for someone? They will love it.

    Cute puppies. Seems like they like to pose, doesn't it?

  9. Nice flimsy! I guess if your dogs are not the size of a small pony, they are easier to spoil.

  10. I love the creative way you joined the border fabrics together. It works beautifully! Your dogs are just too cute - they have such sweet little faces.
