A Completion...for a good cause

I have been sewing and quilting every possible moment for the past 2 weeks. And I have this to show for it!
This is "Best Buddies". It is approximately 65" x 65". I adapted my pattern from a free download from this n that fabrics. I made this to donate to the Stokes County Humane Society. Animals, especially dogs, have a special place in my heart (guess that's why I have 3!). The proceeds from this quilt will go to help this deserving organization and I am so happy I could help them out!

Some details of the quilt:

I took a 2-day machine quilting class a few weeks ago. I wanted to put a lot of the new methods I learned in this quilt. The corners are free-motione quilted hearts with stipple fill.



The borders are a cross-hatch grid I did with my walking foot.


The inner border I quilted with a twin-needle! This was the first time I have ever used a twin needle and I love the look!

In the center of the quilt, I echo quilted around each of the appliqued figures. Then I free-motioned a tight stipple all through the light ground. 
I really like how it turned out.
