Here is a partial quilt top that I found in a thrift shop. ( Not near as nice as other that have been posted).I would like to finish it and possibly use embellishments. I have pictures of some of the fabrics that I have collected. What do you think?

my sleeping helpers are on the couch

I love your dogs. Cairn terriers? I have a Cairn I rescued from a local animal shelter.

I'm sorry, was there a quilt in that picture? I got sidetracked by those cute bookends on the sofa ;-)

I like your helpers. Look like they are waiting for you to get busy sewing. I think they are good choices.
