    Thank you! I took a class at a LQS (mostly just to force myself to give me time to practice- I had already done a lot of sketching, so the class didn't really teach anything new) and after the 2 hour class we were told "go quilt something real!" They really discouraged spending all your time on practice blocks.

    A project like this was good, because if it turned out amazing, I was really happy, but it was kind of a practice at a new technique anyway, because I couldn't ruin something I'd spent months on. Painting just took a day or so.

    Beautiful quilt!
    A dog is not "almost human" and I know of no greater insult to the canine race than to describe it as such.

    It looks great especially the McTavishing. That is cool how you showed the steps.

    Beautiful job, really makes your calla lily come alive! I read their ads for the classes but haven't taken any. May have to try the painted quilt class.
