I wanted something to cover the portion of the couch that our dog sleeps on.
What are you most proud of?
Toby loves his quilt.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Anyone can design a project, especially if you keep it simple. I cut small squares of dog fabrics and sewed them together with a rectangle in the middle (machine-embroidered with the dog's name). I also added a small border. I machine quilted the top to the batting with a muslin back, then layered it right sides together with the fur fabric, leaving an opening for turning it right side out. Then I stitched the opening closed and sewed around the edge and the border.
