I pieced the back with three more dogs in a strip of Katie Jump Rope orange basketweave. The main backing fabric is an aqua with a very small brown dot.

Out for a Walk - Finishing, Option 1
Here is the first option for finishing your off center squares baby quilt. See my previous post for the tutorial. You can see I chose to use straightline quilting. I stitched in the ditch around each dog square, and then continued in a square spiral for the rest of the block. I kept my lines straight but varied the space between lines to fit the off centered-ness of the block. Hopefully the photos illustrate what I mean. :) I then stitched 1/2 inch from each square in the sashing. I did three rounds at the edges of the quilt.
