Well, I finally have finished the top and bottom borders and the inside. Two side borders, binding and some buttons and 3D feet to add and I'll be ready to give the quilt to my grandson.
I had to rip out the bottom border as I did crosshatching 1.5" and it was just too dense for my liking, so I re-did them and used a 3" crosshatch design. I've outlined all the letters and paw prints after I crosshatched.
I will be taking a break from this project for a couple of days to spend with family, so I won't have much to report until Tuesday.
