Dazzling Dogs

We had an open sewing day for employees at the shop today and I took the dazzling dogs from the Block of the Month that I have been running and started to actually put the quilt together.  First here are the blocks – finished.

I have been trying to decide which one I like best but keep changing my mind.  Do any of you have a favorite?

Next is all the blocks on the design board before I started putting them together.

I spent most of the day sewing strips and cutting sashing.  I then needed to make 24 nine patches for the cornerstones.  I got the whole quilt center finished before I left for home.

The last photo is with the borders pinned around the corner of the quilt.

The pattern calls for sayings about dogs to be embroidered in the yellow borders.  I am planning on writing the sayings with a bright thread and my Gammill.  I won’t get it quilted before I get back from California but it will be one of the first quilts I do after I get home.




  1. I love this design. These "barkers" are sew cute. Someday I'm going to make one for me, but I'm still hoping to win one in a raffle (assumes someone makes this design for a quilt raffle).

    Thanks for sharing. Very cute. Can I buy a raffle ticket?


  2. Love these dogs. I have some of the patterns, not all. And, must have 5 or 6 dogs done. Some day they will move to the front burner again. It's nice to see them getting made into a quilt. What type of sayings are you planning on including? bonnie

  3. This is so cute...I love the sayings also, especially about meeting people, and liking the dog more. lol

  4. That is just too cute. What is the name of the pattern, I would like to make one.


I would love to hear from you. Make sure I have a way to contact you if you have a question.
