Default What would you do with this block?

My best friend is undergoing chemo for an aggressive cancer. I made her a Chemo quilt, and then I ran across this pattern from Burlap and Blossom....my friend has a miniature schnauzer that she adores. My plan was to make a pillow with this, but now I am thinking maybe not. Ideas? This block is 12. Some tiny pieces! . And my DH thinks the tiny hearts on the background look like flies! Haha.
Thank you.....

What a cute block. You could make a tote out of it. She would probably use a tote bag much more than a pillow. A 12" block won't make a very large tote bag so you will need to slap a few borders on it to get it up to size.

I agree with putting some borders on it and making a tote. That's an adorable block. Where did you find it?

Cute block and I think a tote made with this block would be very nice. Just add some borders to make it larger if you like and then she could bring whatever she likes (a book, a bottle of water etc.) in the tote to her treatments. Very kind of you to do this and please share a picture of what your finish will be.

Here is her Etsy shop.... I have made several of her patterns, and she has several different dog patterns.

Thanks. Those are so cute. I'll have to check back and see if she does a dachshund in the future.
