Thread: I'm a Wiener baby quilt :)

    I'm a Wiener baby quilt :)

    Yes, the name of the pattern I loosely followed is "I'm a Wiener" - because of the wiener dogs.
    I just finished piecing this top this afternoon. It's for my youngest son's best bud's baby sister - who was born cough-last December-cough. Yeah, it's a bit late...

    The pattern for the dogs is from the Dare to be Square book. The original pattern makes a S shaped dog on the front of the quilt which would be fabulous if the baby's name began with a S but it begins with an L.

    The flowers are dresdens, alternating the background and the pink.
    It's 47x 64 1/2 - for a toddler sized bed.

    I have to piece the backing and then a friend of mine is going to quilt it for me since I sold my Bailey - I miss her already :'( I'll be hopefully getting a frame in the future. Until then, my friend and I are going to work out something - she's going to do the quilting. I'm going to do some bindings for her. She hates doing bindings. I might also piece a few tops for her... we'll see.

    I'm also working on a smaller version of it with only 3 flowers and a smaller dog - sized for her to carry around or snuggle with. I've got most of that already done. I just need to piece together the background fabric since I'm running out of that. It will be close. I'm not 100% sure I'll actually have enough to go around but we'll see how it goes

    That is so cute. First time I've seen this pattern.
    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.

    What an adorable quilt! It's so unbabyish, I really like that about it. The dresden daisies are wonderful and the pink doggies are a hoot! Great quilt!!

    Cute - had to look twice and turn my head to see the dogs, but I love it!

    By all means let's be open-minded, but not so open-minded that our brains drop out.

    I saw this pattern a while ago and thought it was cute, but I particularly like your color choices. Great job!
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.
