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.

I love your quilt and I love buster and Bella, they are very cute, it makes me miss mine more, and now I have my hubbies cats. I love all animals but am partial to dogs. ppdoty@gmail.com

Farm Quilter said...

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!!!

Britt-Inger said...

Your dogs are so cute and your quilt is adorable. I love the striking red together with the white and black puppies. I am still working on my quilt. I will start to quilt it in the end of this week.
Thank you for sharing. I am always enjoying your posts.

Debbi said...

Your dogs look a lot like my middle girl, Giacie Rae. She was special needs when we rescued her - terrified of humans - but is now our cuddled extraordinaire. I was hoping someone would do a super simple palette so I could check it out and I love the way it works. I am now ready to sew!

Lisa Marie said...
