Gone to the dogs
A friend of mine said she wanted to learn to make quilts. I found a simple pattern from http://www.jellyrollfabric.net/ called Patience Corners. My friend is a dog person. I pulled together scraps to make the blocks and piano keys and I used a cream on cream print for the background. My friend came two times and then quit. I took this quilt a year later to a quilt retreat and finished it up. Last week, I quilted it on the long arm. I kind of made up a dog bone shape in the cream areas and used a running around loop line in the squares. I just did straight lines parallel in the piano keys. I took all my b&w scrap binding pieces, sewed them together and used it for the binding.
I put it in a nice bag and delivered it to her. I am not sure how she liked it, but it is done and gone to another home.
I am not sure why I have that light circle on some of the photos, the sun was at my back. I am hoping it is not my camera.
