    My grandparents celebrated their 55th wedding anniversary in December. I decided to make them a lap quilt for them. It also had to be done quick because I thought their anniversary was in January. Oops. It is a two sided quilt. One side for my grandma and one side for my grandpa. I am going to mail it tomorrow. They don't know I am making this for them, it will be a complete surprise. Please excuse the pictures of Tawny I couldn't get her off of the quilt. I think she wants to keep it. She also helped me make it. Oh, I also decided to be brave and I free motioned the whole quilt. Not too bad if you don't look close. :oops:

    She probably just wants to go to Grammas so she figures if she stays on the quilt you will have to take her too. LOL :lol: :lol:

    The quilts are great and your quilting is awesome. :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup:

    I would say Tawny definitely wants her own quilt - and she wants it double sided! :D

    Beautiful!! What neat idea making it two-sided. I may have to borrow your idea for a future quilt.

    Beautiful quilt! And I love Tawny. Bostons are the BEST dogs, aren't they?

    Both are beautiful! But it's obvious that Tawny is saying "Come on, I'm the REAL beauty here!"
