Dog Gone Cute Party


Did you follow the Dog Gone Cute quilt along and blog hop with Lorna at Sew Fresh Quilts?  I know you could pick up some free patterns and great tutes while the hop was on, but I loved this pattern so much that I bought it.  And I sewed along!


I used some of my deconstructed flannel shirts for my pups.  Kona White for accents and Kona Ash for the back ground.  I used the large block set 2 by 3 for a baby quilt.


I used a CT cotton thread in silver grey for the top and a beige for the back.  Just a free motion wave with my walking foot to quilt it.


I used a paw print ultra fleece for the back and Quilter's Dream ultra-select batt - a nice cuddly finish and it keeps the quilt from sliding off baby and the crib.  The binding is a scrap from stash - black with multi-color paw prints.  It gave a nice little pop of color to frame it all off.

Finished size after a wash and dry:  44.5" x 46.5"

Pop over and visit the linky party.

Sewingly Yours,
Sharon
