    Puppy Quilt

    My granddaughter asked me if I would make her a puppy quilt last March, and I finished it in time to give it to her on Thanksgiving Day. This was the first quilt that I FM, and I enjoyed the process very much. The stitches aren't perfect, but with the grin from ear to ear, I think she thought it was. She is only 6 and I think she thought every stitch was perfect, and of course made with love. I haven't posted anything for a long time and had a hard time figuring out to get an image in.

    The fabric is called "Man's Best Friends" by Leanne Anderson of Whole Country Caboodle for Henry Glass & Co Pattern #7230. It is a panel made up of 16 different dogs and other stuff like dog houses, dog dishes, and fire hydrants. But also it has wording along, beside and on top of these motifs. What I did to make it simple I cut out a 10-1/2 in square and then appliqued with a satin stitch and put all of them at a different angle. Because all of these motifs are different sizes also.

    I love your doggy panels. The fabric is adorable. I love your simple setting and coordinating colors. Two thumbs up to you. I'm so glad you were abe to post a picture. We surely would have missed out on seeing this little gem. But, I'm sure your best compliment came from you granddaughter! (grin from ear to ear)
