My first customer quilt !

My first customer quilt
I'm so excited to finally get to a quilt other than one I made. Here is my friend (and former boss's) dog quilt.
She's the owner of a screen printing and embroidery company. The quilt is made out of old jeans. Then she embroidered the squares with applique dogs and bones. It was VERY heavy. Because of all the embroidery I had to freehand stipple around all the dogs. On the long strips I used the computer to quilt another dog pattern. She was very pleased with the finished result.

I guess she wasn't a "real" customer...we didn't exchange any money. I traded her for lots of custom embroidered quilt labels, a tape gun and tape, and a diet coke :)
