Missy's Quilt finished and handed over...

I wrote a while ago about starting a little quilt for Missy who is DD2's partner's dog. Apparently Missy was rather jealous of Jimmy's quilt and kept trying to take it from him. So I made another one...
Yesterday I met DD2 in the city, during her lunch break and handed over the new quilt.
Those 2 large appliqued bones stand out...lol
 The binding was made with all the scrap 2 1/2 inch strips...and I even had some left over.

And this time I remembered to attach a label...

DD2 and her partner were thrilled; Missy seemed pleased and Jimmy must have smelled my scent as DD2 reported he jumped up on to it...?
I don't have a photo of the dogs with the new quilt but I have this photo of them that DD2 took when she first bought them a new winter outfit...Missy is on the right...


Meanwhile back at our place, Eduardo had found a new 'bed'...on top of the pile of blankets I've made out of donated squares for K4BN...


He will wonder what has happened to his nice soft bed when the blankets are bundled up and handed over for distribution. Then again, I suppose he will just go back to snuggling into the throw that I made for DH years ago! Lol

Your doggy quilt is very cute. All those animals look like they have nice lives, with their jumpers, quilts and piles of blankets to sleep on!

I always enjoy making quilts for my kitlets. That is so very sweet of you to make Missy her own quilt and it's perfect! Eduardo sure looks comfy. I am sure he will get over the loss by napping on another quilt :)
