In my last post i gave you a wee peek at a quilt I was making for Luna, our 6 month old cocker spaniel.
This was a leader and ender project from a quilt called Blue Ridge Beauty by Bonnie Hunter
It is in her book Adventures with Leaders and Enders.
Anyway, I had started it a long time ago and the blocks I had finished were stored in a box. The machine I was using at the time did not have a quarter inch foot so some of my seams were huge.
I thought it would make a perfect little quilt for Luna to lie on in the evening she seems to prefer to lie on the floor stretched out rather than in her bed.
I added a couple of little borders to frame it. Now the quilting.
I quilted it on my frame with an all over echoed flowery pattern. It is not a panto, just freehand. Somebody mentioned that it looks like little paws.
It does too but that was completely unintentional.
Here's the back
and the front:
I love the texture created. It has quite a chunky look to it because I used a fairly thick polyester wadding. It will be going through the washing machine frequently I think!
Here's Luna in front of the quilt, bored with me taking photos.
Hasn't she grown since the first photos?
Its all finished now and being used daily. Adds a lovely splash of colour to my living room floor and its good to get another UFO finished!
Now, whats next?
See you next time
