What advice would you give someone starting this project? The good: Wallace has another cover for his chair I didn't need to buy any material to try this pattern I like doing these little projects that still have a use. It gives an opportunity to try a pattern without committing to a whole quilt. I can practice free motion quilting. The bad: Years old WonderUnder is very stiff - should have used my Lite Steam A Seam 2 Lots of tracing & fusing The ugly: My free motion quilting - - sigh - - must do lots of practice

I love it! And here's a neat fact: my maiden name was Wallace. I'm a Scot!

Oh, my goodness! What a royal dog. Love the scotty fabric. Where did you find it? Also love your color choice on the batik side of the quilt!

Thank you! Actually these are two different quilts. I found the Scotty fabric at my local quilt shop - had to have it. The dog needs at least two quilts for his chair as one is always in the wash.

Simply stunning Darns! I LOVE ALL your projects and find them very inspiring. Was wondering if you do anything special when you was your fabrics, especially the batiks? I love the fabric but hesitate using them because of the fade factor. For my own shirts that were made of crinkled rayon I would dash a bit of vinegar, hand wash in cold water and line dry in as much shade as possible ( I'm in Hawaii and line drying is the norm for our household - most of the time ) The colors kept OK but eventually did fade and fabric did shrink. I don't expect much shrinkage with batiks but do anticipate the fading .Wallace is blessed having such a good mommie :-)

Thank you! I just wash my quilts in cold water and use low setting on dryer. I think you would get fading if the quilts were line dried in the sun. Your pic looks like my brother's Springer Spaniel. Is it?

Sorry about the typo - "Was wondering if you do anything special when you WASH your fabrics....."

Wow I don't know who is luckier, Wallace for having his gorgeous quilt or you for having such a gorgeous Wallace! x
