I never tire of this pattern - of course it's probablly because it makes me think of my collie Abbey and crazy pup Summer sitting together in perfect harmony even if it is only in my dreams :-)
The person I made it for wanted a green border. I love this dark green tree batik.
I always quilt around every motif to make sure all is secure.
And the McTavishing on the moon is something new I tried and will be in my moons from now on:-)
Hope you like it
