    Any ideas on how to quilt this.... My quilting table is finally long enough so I can quilt it length wise.

    I would meander in the blue areas and echo quilt around the pics to make them stand out. Your quilt is great. Have fun quilting it.

    Maybe bones on outer border and meander around blocks and echo around dogs. It is a very pretty quilt.

    I like the idea of using ' bones' and 'paws'. Fire hydrants might work well too, but they would be so hard to do well.

    I would echo quilt around the dogs and do paws and bones in your sashing and borders. Here is a link to a cat quilt I did with FMQ done around pawprint shapes. It was really easy to do once I marked out the paw prints on the quilt top. Sroll to the third picture for a closeup of the paw prints
