Elliot's Quilt

I had a wonderful weekend at a retreat at the Cottage on the Hill. I have a grandson who will be 7 at the beginning of September and all he wants for his birthday is a dog, so I decided to make him a doggy quilt. The fabrics were all from the Cottage on the Hill, the dog pattern is by Disa Designs and Peg worked out the placement of the blocks.
I can't choose which dog I like best.

Here is the finished result, with his name and puppy paw prints all around the border. I am sure he will love it. He phoned last night, very excited, he was given an early birthday present a labradoodle puppy. We are visiting next weekend so can't wait to see it. And finally I have a finish for August.
