Life Is Good With A Dog In The House And A Giveaway

Dogs have always been a part of my life, so when Lorna at Sew Fresh Quilts showed the
adorable Dog Gone Cute blocks on her blog I just had to jump in and make a quilt with them!


The fun part was being able to pick the dogs I liked and use fabric from my stash.
Of course, I liked all those sweet pups and totally loved sewing them together.

Life is good with a dog in the house!

A little gingham ruffle goes perfectly with puppies!


Red polka dots on the back...fun!


Quilted with Superior Threads MonoPoly invisible thread.

Go visit Sew Fresh Quilts to make your own sweet dogs!

  6. Adorable doggie quilt!! That ruffle really sets it off perfectly!! Your Bella is very much like my Tara in the barking at everything (same breed) - it must be because they are so small that they feel the need to holler for help all the time!!!
