And More Black & White


This fun poodle block is a free pattern by  Sally Trude at The Objects of Design.  She has the tutorial for left and right facing pups, but I chose to make all mine facing the same, like in line at a dog show.  This hop really helped to push me to finishing up my B&W quilts.


 And I used this plushy for the back.  If it looks familiar, it matches the 5 FQs in my give away HERE.  I liked that pop of Hot Pink and even if a different dog, still makes a cute back for this.

*tip - some people have trouble FMQ plushy/minky on their home machine.  I use a dryer sheet to rub down my machine bed and table.  It makes that fabric glide as well as prevents the 'fuzz' from collecting on surfaces.  I rub down after as well to pick up any residue, clean and oil my machine well after, and change out the needle.*

  6. The poodles are adorable. Thanks for the tips on using plush fabrics. I only used Minky once and it was a disaster. I will keep the dryer sheet tip in mind if I get try it again.

  7. I adore the poodle quilt. My daughter came home to check on her mom (and her dad - indpendently). She stayed with me. She has a toy poodle. Abigail is going well. She's at least 14 years old. However, when Abby's time here is over, she plans to get a standard poodle. I think I need to make her a poodle quilt. That is after I make her the requested t-shirt quilt from her sorority days in college. She asked me over 5 years ago and I haven't started it yet. No, I have touched my sewing machine in over 5 years. I think it's time to do some recreational therapy. Thanks for sharing the pattern with us, too. Maybe that's the gentle push I need to get me out of this chair and doing something constructive.
