This Really Is Dog Gone Cute

After I got all the pieces sewn together for my first block, I had to agree with Lorna...
it really is a dog gone cute pattern! 

Lorna at Sew Fresh Quilts has a sew along and a blog hop using several styles of these pups.
I can't wait to see what everyone does with their doggies!

Sew Fresh Quilts

The EQ7 Seasons Row-A-Long is quickly approaching and since my quilt was all bound, it was time
to take photos. I can't show the quilt until October 6th, but I can show where I went to take the pics.

It was about 88 degrees in the desert, but my trusty helper and I headed out to find the perfect spot.
It was really hot, but it looked pretty good here...

With a slight turn to the left, this was the other view...

Of course, we came across the usual mystery holes that I carefully avoided!

The hubby turned into a little boy again when he saw the hole. Bravely wearing his flip-flops,
he used a stick to poke and dig to see what was in there. Luckily, nothing jumped out to bite his toes!

Time to make more dog gone cute puppies!


  1. Oh my what is it about the male animal that will do things like that? Cute puppy.

  2. Very Dog-gone cute block. Brave to be in flip flops in the desert.

  4. Hmmm, that looks like a dangerous past-time...mine has a tendency to get too close to critters when using a camera!! Your puppy is a super cutie!!

  5. Walk away from the mystery holes! Love the doggy block.... I'm still thinking about getting this pattern...sure is cute!

  6. Awww, yoiur pup turned out so adorable in those fabrics Carol!
    Eep! Even wearing hip waders, I wouldn't poke at a mysterious hole.

  7. Wow, great pictures of the desert, I am sure Ron can run fast if something came up out of that hole. Yikes! I LOVE the dog quilt piece!!!!

  8. That is EXACTLY what my husband would do - while I ran the other direction.
