This was my first quilt.  I had never quilted anything before so I thought I'd start out small and if I messed up, oh well.  It ended up being a quilt for my dog, Master Trouble Mills.

This was tons of fun and I believe making this quilt is exactly when the quilt bug bit me.  I will say it was an extremely hard bite.  LOL!

It's not the prettiest of quilts, but he loves it.  I  just used some old fabric I had laying around.  Sorry the picture is so blurry but he was very happy and didn't want to "lay still".

Happy Quilting!

Your quilt looks beautiful!  Good job.  I'm a beginner too.  Just finishing my third quilt.  Have enough fabric to make about 30 more.

Thanks!  

LOL!  I know what you mean about the fabric, Slesher.  I could probably open my own fabric store now.

Welcome to QCA!

The ladies and gentlemen are awesome here.  Just like an extended family.

Happy Quilting!

I think it's great and it really seems to have received someone's seal of approval!

Love the quilt.  When our cat, Sugar, gets on the quilt I am working on I know it is a winner.  Most pictures I have taken of quilts I have made include her.  LOL

The quilt looks beautiful! And if your baby is anything like mine, he will be your biggest help (or hindrance) while you are quilting! The second mine hit the floor in any stage of quilting Leo makes himself nice and comfortable on it...looks like Master Trouble Mills will be the same way!

Great quilt.  Looks like he has definitely claimed this quilt for himself!

Your quilt looks lovely & your pup is so cute. Great job for a first quilt. My pup tries to claim hot pads, table runners, works in progress, even went so far as to climb on the sewing table to claim one. LOL

He does have his own quilt now.

Awww thanks everyone!

I so appreciate all your great comments.

Trouble thinks everything is his!  LOL!  But he's my buddy and he lays right at my foot pedal.  He's a silly boy.

I've had him since he was 6 weeks old he's now 7.
