'Foep' (birds and cats) quilt update

 My second Foep (birds and cats) quilt update. The first Foep post was here.

I made some changes and added lace in some places.

 Lots of lace on the brown border to tone down the brown.

 And other trim as well.

 Ric rac trim in the right yellow/mustard colour and old French trim.

For the outside borders I made crazy blocks and used lots of scraps including this thrift shop embroidery.

 This border with the crazy blocks on the left still needs quilting. I made the quilt 'as you go'. This means when I'm done sewing the borders I finished it all. I hope to be able to show the end result soon!

And finally meet Oscar at this blog. He is our new dog friend who came to live with us, after his former owners couldn't take are of him anymore. He made friends with us and our little dachshund Lizzy, so all is well.

What a cute dog and a lovely quilt. Your link to the first Foep quilt leads to this quilt and not to the one you made previously. I did find by searching for "Foep."

Zat helemaal te genieten van de Foep foto's en toen kwam Oscar en was ik op slag *flieft*.
Jippie! Oscar is er!
