I assembled the paw prints and the interior rows first. If you look closely at the stitching on the paws, it kind of looks like basbeball stitches. I used my the flat lock stitch on my serger to obtain this look.
The weather was so nice, I decided to move the entire operation to the patio. I also worked on this quilt while we were on vacation visiting Mr. B's family. This is where I decided to try out my embroidery foot for the first time. It took some getting used to but I liked it.
I did a scrappy binding with the leftover fabric.
