Today is my day on the wonderful Dog Gone Cute Blog Hop hosted by Lorna of Sew Fresh Quilts
Originally I was going to make an overnight bag for this little guy that I dog sit quite often.
However, my middle son recently visited friends who have a new beagle puppy and returned saying that they really did need a quilt or blanket for him. We knew the Dog Gone Cute blocks would be just perfect, so poor old Bruce is going to have to wait for his tote!
The pattern gives instructions for 2 sizes of block, with many, many variations of dog faces. I chose to make 4 of the larger blocks. I made two of Dog 1, one Dog 5 and one Dog 7.
I added a 3 1/2" background strip to the top and bottom of each to make them square.
It's called Patch Bones as is by Makower UK.
I quilted wavy lines horizontally across the quilt using Aurifil 50/2 in shade 2600, and bound it with the same blue solid as I used for background of the top left hand block.
The pattern was a dream to follow. Lorna lays everything out in a clear and concise way. Her designs are all so adorable!
I think this little guy (his name is Bobby) is going to be very happy with his new quilt!
And here is Bruce proudly posing next to the quilt. He's going to be quite disappointed when he realises it's not for him!
