This is a quilt I recently finished for a dear friend. She's 93 this year and will be moving to assisted living as soon as a room opens. Unfortunately she will have to leave her cocker spaniel, Ebony, behind. I saved all of Ebony's dog groomer bandanas. This quilt is my way of keeping Roberta and Ebony together. Gave her the quilt tonight. She was delighted. Thanks for looking

What a beautiful thing to do...the quilt is just lovely. I hope Ebony finds a nice home, it would be good if they could have visits together.
