Thank you Lorna for sharing this fantastic pattern with us! If you have not yet checked out this pattern, you are missing out. Like all of her patterns, it is well written and easy to follow and piece.
I chose to do the large dog blocks so I could have a nice sized lap quilt for my youngest dog-lover.
I am so pleased with how it turned out.
I started by making blocks based on our own fur babies. Here is Doctor's block:
I altered the pattern just a little to make the center stripe skinny just like Doctor's fur.
Can you see the tecture in the background fabric? It is a denim linen. The color and feel is amazing.
Next up was Captain's block:
Such a sweet baby. I shortened the stripe on this one to match Captain's color.
Then we have a block to remember our sweet Nala, who passed away 2 summers ago. We miss her so much. My youngest was so excited to have her included.
I pulled the rest of my fabrics in "realistic dog colors" as requested by the youngest.
It was so much fun to play around with all of the different variations of the patterns.
And check out the quilting:
Can you see it? Swirls with hidden dog bones. How perfect is that!
