Quilts and little dogs

Have just started to get all the material ready for Makeesha's quilt, she is almost 4 months old, so I hope to have it finished before she turns 1. The pattern for this quilt is from the "Little Chicken Feather" book, but I am not sure if I am using the elements from the "boy" quilt or the "girl" quilt. It will possibly end up as a combination of the two - I will just have to wait and see which way my creative (???) juices flow. Keep checking for further updates.
I am also about to make some dog jackets for the winter. I have a chihuahua - Andre, and one of my daughters has a small bitsa - Rex, and they both get very cold now that winter is here, so jackets are the way to go, I think.
All Claires' quilt needs now, is to be sewn to the backing and then quilted. I think this may sound easier than it is actually going to be. Oh well, nothing ventured, nothing gained; and I am not one to give in easily, so I shall see what happens, and if I am still sane at the finish of it.

Blissfully stitching
