    DOggie Quilts

    I was invited to a wedding shower for the daughter of very close friends. I know the daughter, but not very well. I know they have 2 small dogs, so I made these doggie quilts from my stash (mostly with scraps from a bed quilt I made for my DGD cat and dog quilt). I backed one with minky and one with fleece, and used that quick technique for prairie points that was posted on here.
    I think they will make a cute gift.

    They are so cute, what a wonderful idea! I am a dog (and cat) lover and owner and I know I would be thrilled to pieces to receive these as a gift, as would my pets. I think your gift is well thought out and how wonderful for the young lady to receive two handmade items!! I love the doggie faces in the first quilt especially. Good job.

I searched for the info here on prarie points, but didn't find anything. Can you post the link? Thank you for sharing your quilt picture - love it!

    When I made these prairie points for the doggie quilt, there was a problem with the seam allowance when they were inserted into the border seam—this was not because there wasn't sufficient seam allowance (although there wasn't a whole lot); this was because the prairie points were so irregular at their base. I would recommend making them slightly bigger and then sewing a straight line that stabilizes them as far away from the base as necessary; then that line can be used as a seam line to attach them to the quilt top (or bottom) before the final seam is sewn—this will ensure that there aren't any raw edges that peek out of the final seam.
