Pets on Quilts 2015

It’s Pets on Quilts time again! I don’t know why I didn’t enter adorable-6-month-old-puppy Hank last year, but I will be entering the Dog on Quilt category with grown-up Hank this year…

The quilt is Left A-Lone Star- soon to have a better name when actually finished. It’s sat unquilted for over a year, maybe even two years which is a long time for a WIP for me. This weekend I started properly quilting it. I just felt like quilting instead of piecing and my tension was behaving itself for a change! I’d like to finish it before this quarter of the finish along so I have something to show!

I’m about a quarter of the way through. Here’s the quilting sans-dog…

Times like this make me really really want a longarm

I’ve probably reached the English Pointer quota by entering Hank, Frankly into the Animal Themed Quilt category too.

Go to the Pets on Quilts linky party here!

    Hank you look very handsome sitting on your Mum’s quilt. You much let her finish quilting it though because she is doing a beautiful job!

    I’m glad you got Hank to pose nicely on this quilt, instead of just with his toe. Your quilting is just lovely, as is the quilt itself. This is sure to be a happy quilt when it’s finished.

    Pretty Hank.He must be a best behaveing one. Like the quilting you are doing. Keep going! What longarm can’t do is podering here and there as you go along. Maybe possible, but I like to quilt a bit and sit back and think a bit and quilt a bit way.
