Maetha has asked that I finish the Dog Quilt so it can hang in the shop for The Greater Atlanta Quilt Shop Hop next month. It was finished except for the last three borders so I worked on it last night and got it finished. Here it is in the quilting studio waiting for its turn to be quilted. It is number 6 on my UFO list but if I get it done, I will select another UFO to replace it – there are certainly enough of them to choose from.
Since our theme for Shop Hop is “As American as Movies and Popcorn”, it needs a movie name. I googled dog movies and I think the best fit is “All Dogs Go to Heaven”. These dogs look heavenly.
Now that I am looking at the photos, I realize that I forgot to follow part of the pattern. There is supposed to be a small nine patch in the outside corners of the outside border. It would be easy to make the change but I am not sure I need to.
This quilt was a block of the month last year but we are still able to get the patterns if anyone wants to make it this year. As a block of the month, I packaged all the fabrics including the buttons for the eyes but this would be a great quilt to use scraps on.
I am teaching the Wacky Devine Nine class this evening so won’t be able to start quilting. I have a customer quilt that is ahead of it in line anyway.
