I don't think I've every blogged about my Bailey Quilt. Bailey is my 14-year-old Border Collie who has been a part of our family since she was 6 weeks old. I'd always wanted to make a quilt of her.
I June of 2008, I participated in a Quilting Workshop featuring Ruth McDowell's quilting methods. I used a favorite photo of Bailey, and punched it up with some colourful fabrics. I finally finished the quilt last September, in time for our local quilt show.
In all, I'm quite happy with the way it turned out, and the colours I used, but now I can see where I should've spent abit more time blending in the seam lines. I would love to explore this technique more! It is so unique to each individual. You make your own pattern! How cool is that!
