    This is one for the local Humane Society.. anyone have ideas for quilting the background. Nothing too hard because I'm not real good at FMQ yet.

    sounds like a good time to practice anything you'd like to get better at

    Look at Leah's website www.daystyledesigns.com - when I'm stuck for ideas, I often find inspiration there. Plus all the designs are categorised according to difficulty and there's a video showing how to do each one.

    Here's a clickable link http://www.daystyledesigns.com/ :-D

    If it's meant for the dog/cat I'd probably just use a fairly tight meander, since it will be laundered like crazy.

    If It's for a human, I like the bones idea!

    Surely any all over pattern would be great. How about a pattern you'd like to be better at? :)

    Thanks for the site. I think I like the idea of the bones, and that idea also led to possible fish for the cat quilt.

    This website is great! She adds new designs almost daily. Her personal philosophy tends towards the new age, but she's an awesome quilter!
