This was a Scrappy Trip Around the World from instructions written by Bonnie Hunter.
As I was working on this - I really didn't care for how it was turning out. I had pulled fabrics that were all too busy - and very dark - and there was no sparkle to it.
After seeing my neighbor drying a "sofa quilt" for her 2 Scottie dogs on the clothesline that had seen better days, I decided the boys (my buddies) needed a new quilt, so I added the applique in the corner and had Jill quilt this for me with dog paws all over.
|The quilt finished, bound and washed.|
|The boys! I did this raw edge applique so they will get "furry"|
|The backing - the aqua strip has tiny Westies on it (the Scottie fabric was on pink - so I compromised). The tiny print on either side is dragonflies, and the dark reddish strip is bricks -which will have meaning to my neighbor)|
