Welcome to the Quilting Board!
A dog is not "almost human" and I know of no greater insult to the canine race than to describe it as such.
What a beautiful quilt, I just love the colors and the pattern. So delicate. Great work!
Humor is the great thing, the saving thing. The minute it crops up, all our irritations and resentments slip away and a sunny spirit takes their place.
What a lovely piece of work - I have always loved hand applique, and this is beautiful. Your quilting is terrific too.
KEEP CALM and CARRY ON!!
