    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.

    Your daughter is sooooooo lucky. Hope she takes an interest in quilting - you did a great job quilting. Post a pic of it on her bed.

    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.

    It is lovely. I do not understand why it is a crazy quilt though either.

    BTW my DD does not want to learn either. There is another thread talking about what happens to your stash when you die. I wonder too. My daughter will not use it.

    Thank you everyone!!! I am so glad you seasoned quilters like it.

    I am flattered you would be interested. It's called a Crazy Quilt because the four patch is cut in non-parallel ways...

    PS
    LOL! I don't worry about my stash before I go... whatever I leave, which probably won't be much -- my youngest will gladly take. It's a battle with my things now and trust me, I can't turn around!!!
