Quilting, quilting

I've been doing lots of sewing this week, but have nothing new to show for it. I'm machine quilting Becky's Roses and getting a bit fed up with heaving the quilt about under the machine. (Incidentally, Becky's house purchase has fallen through, so she's back to square one. Poor Becky, but at least it takes the pressure off me to finish the quilt in record time!)

I've also been hand quilting Dog Show, and have finally finished it.

I just quilted round the dogs and then I've quilted a few bones in the blank spaces.

I machine quilted the borders, because I like a firm edge, and I've quilted a word of dog-speak in each corner too
(the others are woof and bow wow).

Hooray! I really love it!
