I couldn't resist two blue doggy fabrics when I found them at Joann's this spring. The fabrics aren't very good quality (no surprise), just doggone cute. I wish there was more contrast between the two fabrics, but I don't think the recipient will mind.
I chose my favorite dog in the group, found a similar fabric, and created the large applique for the center block.
I have the quilt about 75% quilted now, and I sure wish my FMQ around the applique was much better!!! Oh well.
One picture shows a close-up of the original spotted blue dog.
