InstructionsI took the basic idea for the half square triangles around the central panel from a magazine. Then I added a friendship braid which was prepared using a creative grids Jelly Roll Trapezoid ruler. I used a variety of dog prints which I purchased at quilt shows around the UK. Dad was very pleased with his christmas present quilt

What was your inspiration?
A magazine article
What are you most proud of?
I have made a number of quilts but this is the first one that I have made for my Dad. We love our westies and so I am proud to have made this quilt for my Dad.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Try not to use too many directional prints on the half square triangles. I had to make extra ones after getting the dogs the wrong way up on a few of them.
