    Just finished, fun quilt for SIL

    DH's sister is going to have a BIG birthday early October and this is what I have made for her. I wanted it to be cheerful so she will laugh every time she looks at it. It measures 42 x 50 inches. Can you guess what type of pets she has? LOL

    sorry the photo quality isn't great; thanks for looking

    edited to add; thanks to this QB I have used methods I hadn't tried before eg QAYG, and I did different FMQ. Usually I just stipple and work motifs on the embroidery machine.
    Thanks everyone for inspiring me to try different things

    I love it! Love the whole thing - the colors, the pattern and the quilting is fabulous!
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.

    I just liked the way the greetings have been designed. Truly great work Jill. You know that you have done a fabulous quilting. Other than that I would like to say that the whole quilt is looking attractive especially the "dog" work done inside the blocks. I am curious to know that how much time did you took to finish this ?

    Thanks for all your nice replies

    stenthpatric, I worked on this quilt for about one month in between volunteering, gardening, cleaning, cooking etc.

    I absolutely LOVE it! Would you mind sharing the manufacturer for the fabrics? I haven't seen this group before and love the colors.
    A dog is not "almost human" and I know of no greater insult to the canine race than to describe it as such.

    You have made a very unique quilt! Your SIL will love it. I love all the different quilting you included in the quilt, and you did a really nice job of it. A lot of work and very well done!
