The top is completed and it has been pinned to the batting and backing waiting to be quilted. I will be using this one to practice free motion quilting. No matter how it turns out I know Maggie will think it is wonderfully soft and snuggly. I'd be willing to bet I won't hear the first complaint from her that the stitches are not quite even or there's no dog bone applique on it! (When I first showed the quilt top to my husband, he said, "That doesn't look like a dog's quilt. There's no bone or anything on it." Man, he better be glad it's illegal to sell husbands on Ebay!) I'll finish it up this weekend. I suspect she will have plenty of time to snuggle in it to stay warm while dreaming about warm days to come soon so she will be able to stretch out on the deck and enjoy sunshine, listen to the birds singing and the babbling water from the fish pond.
