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

This was so nice of you. I can't even imagine how it would be to have to give up my dog. Where will Ebony be going?

I love that you used Ebony's bandanas in this cute quilt, and the back side is pretty too. Very clever! Thanks for sharing.
