    Talking Here's my finish!!!

    This is a baby gift for a young lady that works with my husband. I'm not sure who's more excited about the baby. The mom and dad or my husband. He loves babies.

    The pattern is Cheaper by the 1/2 Dozen by Atkinson Designs. It takes 6 fat quarters, 1/3 for the inner border, 7/8 for the outer border and 1 5/8 yards for the backing. I didn't use a separate inner border. I used the stripe border removing the outer portion of it.

    I've never done mitered corners but someone posted their tut on this bb and I used it. It made things so easy!!! (unfortunately, I don't remember the poster's name)

    Thanks for looking

    So sorry photos are so large. I'm not sure how to change that.

    Awww, what a neat idea! Every child needs a puppy, and this quilt is full of them! Such a little boy quilt, reminds me of my youngest, he would have loved this as a toddler!

    I forgot to upload what the backing looks like. The mom is doing the room in lab puppies. She fell in love with it when I showed it to her today. Baby's due in a couple of weeks.

    Very nice job! You can use paint software on your pc to resize photos. Love those dogs.

    Wow that is adorable! And just my preference but I prefer larger pictures to be able to see detail. Love the fabric!

    Very nice job and the puppies are so cute.
    No matter how tough life is, it sure beats the alternative.

    I love your quilt. And I am sure the family will love it too. What kind of a dog do they have?
