    Looks like the dogs match your quilt! You're lucky to have a large area to pin.

    yes I am. I have to move a table and rug to do this, but it works great. I love the trick I learned about rollling a ping pong ball under all the layers :)

    What a great photo! I have a cat and he does enjoy adding his weight to anything done on the floor!

    Dogs know something beautiful when they see it!

    The best compliment they can make (since they can't talk) is to lay on it!

    Your picture made me smile--thanks!

    yes, inquiring minds want to know. A ping pong ball... hmmmm.... must be better than my idea of sliding the cutting mat underneath so I don't gouge the floor.
