My First 2 Quilts! (Scottie Dog Quilts)

Here are the fronts & they are both the same size but the wind was blowing like crazy so the right one looks a little smaller.

When I took a picture of the backs this nice young man came by & held it down. You can't see it but my sister & two other girls that were walking by are holding up the quilts up top. I'm glad I got pics of them down town because they are HUGE! It was way too bright for photos but it give you a chance to see just how large they are. 

 Quilting these tops took me FOREVER (to be said in the voice of that kid from the Sand Lot movie) & I'd be lying if halfway through the whole process I wasn't quite sure I'd made the right decision about how I chose to quilt them. 

Once I washed them they came out of the dryer with so much crinkly goodness. I knew I'd made the right choice. I was a little nervous putting them in the wash. I'd put so much sweat & tears into them. What if they fell apart!?!? 

Thankfully they didn't, lol & I am so very happy with how they turned out. I'm hoping that my sweet friend is just as happy.

Even if it did take almost a year to finish them ;)
