Bootz864 & Kathy,

Thank you for your kind words...

Kathy,

the border was easy, I keep the 2 1/2 square going thru the quilt... 2 1/2" strips of Blue and 4 " strips of Lime.  sew lime to both sides of the blue, press toward the center.  cut in 2 1/2" strips.  sew as in Picture, then trim even with points as in picture.  My measuring was off a little for the top and bottom, but I evened the edges and did my best with adding a cornerstone.  I used 5 strips of the blue & 10 of lime and had only whats pictured left over.  If you have any questions, just ask.  Lisa C

Jea:

Jea, great start!  Your fabrics are so interesting.  I hope we'll get to see a picture of this when it's finished.

Finally, the top is done! Now I need to find a suitable back for it. I really had a lot of fun with this. Thank you, Nana! I learned a lot and really stretched my comfort zone.

Here's a pic - it wouldn't stay up on my wall so I laid it on top of my bed. Then, of course, one of my fur-children just had to check it out...

Very pretty, love the colors. My DD has a fur-baby who looks a lot like yours. Peanut is a Jack Russel and Rat Terrier.

Thank you, Bonita! My little guy is a Jack Russell / Corgi mix. So they say. If you ask me, he's all terrier!

Ahhh, how sweet. We have a little girl that is half Corgi and the other half Border Collie/Something.

Love your quilt and your little fella obviously does also.

I finished my MQ 8 Thursday night but couldn't get a picture posted until today.  I really had fun with this mystery!  I call it "Beyond the City Streets" because of the border fabric.

Beautiful Carol W!  It's so cheerful with the bright red and white and floral border.  Well done!

QuiltCrone.  I love your colors.  Mine is orange & black but so far only 2 blocks are complete. :-(   Anyway, your quilt is beautiful. My DD also has a fur-baby that looks a lot like yours and his name is Peanut too.
