The paws are actually computerized. I'm having them "walking" around the quilt. But to get the sides as one long quilt-out I'm turning the quilt on the frame. Each dog block has stipple quilting in the background. The sashing has zig zags quilted on them. All that is left to do is the side borders and one background. Yep, this one should be done soon. No clue what color I'm binding it in. I do know I am going to do both sides of the binding by machine. It will get done so much faster. I have some more hand work to do -- all the dogs need eyes -- probably buttons. Here's Priss ready for her eyes.
Here are a few more quilts from retreat. First up, Nancy talking about her quilt during our Sunday morning show and tell session.
MaryBeth was working on a t-shirt quilt. Sad story as the t-shirts were owned by her son-in-law's brother who died way too early. This quilt is for his son. She will be making 2 more for family members. This one turned out spectacularly. I love the orange she used for the sashing and that the shirts are different sizes. It looks great. I'm sure the little boy getting this quilt will cherish it.
Watch for more retreat pictures over the next week or so. I think I have more but I'll have to figure out where they are.
And here's Miss Natalie at the beach. Her family spent the week at the beach house with some of their friends. By the end of the week the girls looked exhausted. I bet they slept well each night!
That's it for me today.
