Pets on Quilts - Pet Theme Catagory



This is my 'Dog Gone Cute' quilt made during the blog hop with Lorna at Sew Fresh Quilts.  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"

Linking up with  Lily Pad Quilting for the Pets on Quilts Show - Pet Theme Catagory

  7. The flannel shirts make for such a snugly baby quilt. I've made a couple of different baby quilts using that pattern. Every baby needs a pup of their own.

  8. Perfect baby/child quilt and a nice way to recycle those shirts. The paw print is perfect, too.
