well, if you didn't i'll zoom through the highlights.
lisa & i have twin dads that even though we are very much cat people have a love for weenie dogs. lisa's dad wrote a book about a wiener dog man, while my dad has a wiener dog puppet he uses for performances (such as our local cowboy poetry). we spent my spring break together shopping for our fabric as well as completing the quilt tops before i headed back home. also, dr. pepper is delicious. our dads received their quilts at the end of june, which is their birthday month.
for my dogs (dogs in sweaters pattern by elizabeth hartman, btw) i chose yellow sweaters to "match" my dad's blankie from years gone by. the background on the front is a moda grunge to tie in lisa's dad's "blue" color (the color is called peacock) which helps the yellow and brown pop out as well! we both used the same fabric for the back of the quilt. ideally, we wanted a blue and yellow plaid, but holly's quilt cabin didn't have enough yardage for both of us, so we got a blue one! i used yellow as my bobbin thread when quilting to bring the yellow in like i had wanted. now, on to the quilt!
