Pix: "Love Your Dog Today" Quilt


Before I left on my vacation, I received a commission to make a quilt
for a young child from one of my tennis buddies. (She had bought my
Texan Cowboys quilt last year). I showed her only a few patterns to
limit her choice and within my quilting 'limits' LoL.
She immediately chose this one, which is a pattern by Pat Varney for
Diamond Textiles and wanted the same colour ways as in the magazine.
The pattern was for a square quilt and my friend Mary wanted a
rectangle so I added strips top and bottom. It is my quilt name. Pat
called it Dog World Quilt.
As I do not have children/grandchildren myself, this was a different
project for me! It was really fun to make. The ears and tails of the
dogs are sewn into the seams and hang free, then tacked into different
positions.
I have Judy in Maine (rctq) to thank for helping me find the
background fabric. I had about given up finding a white background.
Thank you Judy! It is so cute, that fabric. The prairie points are
my first effort at those.

What a really fun quilt, Bronnie. Lovely idea and great fabrics. The youngster is going to love playing with his/her 'doggies'. Prairie points are terrific! . In message , Bronnie writes

Thanks ladies for all the nice comments, appreciate it. It would be a great quilt to auction for a charity wouldn't it? It will get shipped off in the next day or two.
