    Finished this over the weekend, for my older daughter. She's 10.... We are redoing her room and I wanted to make her a "Young Lady's" quilt.

    Twin size with hand-quilted dog bones and puppy paws, in honor of our puppy, Hazel!

    Thank you Ninnie, Pam and pocoellie!

    Ellen Thanks for asking, I drew the dog paws and bones and then cut them out (anything stiff, like cardboard, template plastic, ets.). With a pencil, I traced directly onto the quilt, while the quilt was wound on the frame.

    LOL! I wish my quilting frame were small... The 3 poles on which I roll the backing, top and batting are just shy of 80" length. It stands about 5 feet high (standing on cinderblocks). Definitely the centerpiece of the family room!

    With patience and a lot of basting, you can definitely do this without a quilting rack.

    Thank you Quilt4U!

    Quilter Girl Thanks! I am glad you like it... she loves it but not interested in learning. She is more into electronics and the such.

    :oops: I'd love to take a pic of it on her bed, but her walls are so horrible. We are in the process of ripping off old wall paper and is 1/2 done.... VERY OLD PAPER and very ugly. Red white and blue and clashes with her new colors.
