Dog Quilt Progress

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.



  1. I'm crazy about the dog quilt. Amy Butler? Right? Someday I'm going to make it.

  2. I've always loved this design. You are doing a great job. I too want to make this quilt someday.


  3. I love the dog quilt, and look forward to seeing how you quilt it! Great name for it!

  4. I love your dog quilt, soooo cute and full of canine personalities!!!!

  5. Hi Melinda, Cute quilt. I made a few of these blocks. The poodle naturally was one and I think I made Scooter and another one. I should look for them and do something with them.

  6. I love that quilt! I've been wanting to make one for some time now too.


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