Puppy Love Finish

    Finally the puppy quilt for my younger granddaughter is finished and in time for her 5th birthday.  It is twin size so good for her age to use on her bed.  

    Since I was not following a pattern, there are a couple of things I wish I had done differently; however, overall I am pleased. 

    I quilted a small meander around each dog face and minimally on the face so it stands out. ( This one is one of my favorites.)  I tacked by hand some of the ears so they laid better but are still free to flop.

    I echoed the bones and dog silhouettes which was good practice.
 I quilted a continuous curve design in the small squares.

     I have a huge stash of fabric and have only been buying when I really needed a piece. The past week I have been too tempted by clearance fabric at my Walmart. Most of this fabric was $1 a yard and one piece $2 a yard.  The 3 darker will make wonderful quilt backs and I think the lighter will be a great addition for a low volume quilt.

Hope you get to enjoy some sewing or quilting time this holiday weekend or enjoy family time.
