This was my last progress report for my quilt of my dog, Bailey.
Or should I say Princess?
I am very happy so far.
But as usual, I have to complicate my life.
I didn't think the original photo that I was using as my road map, was clear enough for the bottom quarter of her face. So I decided to draw out the bottom half of the quilt for a clearer delineation between her ears and her body.
One square of the graph paper is equal to one square of the fabric.
The values of the pencil shading are equivalent to the values of the fabric.
While working on this bottom quarter using the graph,
I did make some adjustments, especially to the collar.
This is what the bottom quarter looks like before it is pieced. Isn't it amazing how much difference a 1/4" seam allowance changes the width?
I chain pieced each section and pressed the seams so that they all nested together.
And then the final steps:
Finished size: 54"x54"
Quilting will be done when I get back to PA.
