What materials did you use? Cotton fabrics, cotton & Isacord thread

What are you most proud of? The points on the star look pretty good & I got yet another opportunity to practice my free motion quilting (have a ways to go there). Don't you love that black stipple print? Looks stippled yet I didn't have to do it!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? I definitely would use spray starch/sizing on fabrics before cutting if I did this again. I added a step to her method for pinning the points. When I have the first pin lined up straight I use another pin to secure the fabrics. That way I don't disturb my position pin. It seemed to help. I also marked the quarter inch seam spot on each fabric.

Thanks a lot! Wallace says "woof" to your Westies! After I got the Scotty fabric I googled "Westie fabric" and found a couple of site with Westie fabric - must be hand painted or something like that as it was $18/yard.

Just checking in to see if Wallace's snazzy quilt has made it to his fav chair ooops throne. Very majestic! Wallace looks exceptionally pleased with it ;-) *hangs "do not disturb"* sign on arm of chair.

Good idea! Dogs seems to be able to nap whenever - I could use that skill sometimes

I love this. Will make it for my Scottie, named Scooby. He will love it as much as Wallace does! Thank you for sharing. I have the Great Scotts Material! it is wonderful.

The picture of Wallace napping on it is priceless! My Scooby naps on a twin bed looking out a window so he can keep an eye on what is going on in the neighborhood!

They really like keeping an eye on what's going on (that is, when their eyes are open)!
