    Shower curtain for Michigan Basset Rescue fundraiser finished!

    Against all odds and my love of procrastination I finished my shower curtain over the weekend. Now on to the quilted stuffed hound. I quilted the panel with metallic gold holographic thread.

    A dog is not "almost human" and I know of no greater insult to the canine race than to describe it as such.

    I used my walking foot, went excrutiatingly slow and sometimes did the curves one stitch at a time using the wheel. I constantly adjusted the quilt. I know there are probably much better and quicker ways to get it done but my quilting is not my strong suit. It took me most of a day to quilt the medallion but I like how it turned out.

    came out adorable
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Nice project and well done. Don't you just love Bassets? One day I would love to adopt one.

    Try to be as nice a person as your dog thinks you are.
