Christmas Snow Puppy Quilt Or Wallhanging Using Snowlandia Fabric

Being a little ahead of the Christmas sewing rush is always a great feeling…I love it! 
I'm over at on the Therm O Web blog today sharing Christmas Snow Puppy...check it out!
While you're there, look around at all the other amazing creations in fabric and paper.

Christmas Snow Puppy
Finished size: 40" x 40"



I loved using Blend Fabrics Snowlandia designs by Maude Asbury for Christmas Snow Puppy.
The fabrics will look adorable in any sewing project! 


Lots of dogs AND cats having some winter fun.



Stitch n Sew Fleece Sew-in High Loft is just the right weight keep those fur babies 
warm and comfortable, and using Therm O Web Spray n Bond Basting Adhesive to 
layer the fabric and batting together made it so easy to quilt. 


I like to use this method for assembling small quilts: Protect the area where you will be
 working by placing an old sheet or paper under and around  the area you’ll be spraying. 
Place the fleece/batting on your working surface. Using the Spray N Bond Adhesive, 
spray about 6-8 inches across the top portion of the fleece/batting from one edge to the 
other. Place the wrong side of quilt backing face down  over the sprayed surface of batting.

Smooth fabric to ensure it adheres to the sprayed fabric. Continue this method of spraying
 and smoothing just 6-8 inches at a time  until you reach the bottom of the quilt back. Check
 for creases or folds. Turn over to have fleece/batting facing up. Add quilt front, wrong side 
down, to fleece/batting using the same spray and smooth method as the backing. 
Trim edges and square-up quilt. Quilt as desired.




Here's a tip for appliqueing white fabrics over dark fabrics: 
When applying white applique designs over a darker printed fabric, sometimes the bottom
 fabric will show through. To avoid this, here’s what I do to keep it from happening:

Take two pieces of white fabric.


 Spray one side of one piece with Therm O Web Spray n Bond Basting Adhesive
lay second piece of fabric over the sprayed area matching edges.


Trace design on smooth side of Heat n Bond Lite, Iron-on Adhesive.

 

Iron applique, rough side down, on either side of the two sprayed sections of fabric. 
Cut out applique designs. 


Peel off paper liner from the backs of applique pieces...it is so easy to peel off!
 Place applique, adhesive side down,  on right side of fabric. Press each section
 following manufacturer’s directions until entire piece is bonded. Let cool.

Cute Christmas project! I recently heard of putting a fusible interfacing on the fabric and then the fusible onto it. Haven't tried yet though. I have also used white felt instead of fabric.

Awwww....I'm thinking about changing this puppy into a St Bernard. That would be perfect for my kids! LOL!!

Cute Christmas quilt. I love spray basting, and maybe this will help me do it better without a second pair of hands, which I rarely have available. =) Snow Puppy is cute!

Super cute pattern. The puppy is adorable. I always double my white fabric but never thought to bond them together with my spray. DUH! Thanks for a great tip.
