Blogger's Quilt Festival - Hot Dog



Hot Dog






I posted this quilt last week, but here now in its entirety is its story. One of my closest friends was having a first grandchild at the end of September. I knew I wanted to make her a quilt for the grandson to be. I had asked her about colour schemes without letting her know why. I had decided on a quilt with blues, oranges greens and had a pattern picked out. Then at the end of June, I went to the library to pick up a quilting book I had on hold.




I had was intrigued by the owl on the front cover as my daughter really loves owls. I was perusing the book, when I found the cutest dog baby quilt. My friend loves, loves dog and I knew this would be perfect for her. Luckily I had all of the fabric for it in my stash, including the background which I had bought as a backing in a quilt kit and didn't like. I was so excited that I started working on it right away.


Meandering Quilting




I had it sent out to be quilted. When I went to pick it up, my daughter mentioned that the meandering looked like the shape of dog bones. When I looked closer I could see those bone shapes. I gave the quilt to my friend this week and she was very appreciative and told me how beautiful it is. To me that is the best part about quilting.


I am joining the Blogger's Quilt Festival. My quilt is in the baby quilt category! Amy does such an amazing job with the festival. I am always in awe of the quilts I see.

A very cute and clever quilt. I am an owl collector too, maybe I need to go looking for this book at my library.

So, so cute! Voted for this one. Good luck. PS. Now I have to find that book. Our library doesn't have any "newer" quilting books.

I too liked the owl quilt on the front of the book. My daughter's best friend requested and owl quilt. So I got the book from the library and reduced it to crib size. It was not my favorite project, but it was a big success for the mother. The little boy is now 4 and loves the quilt - which is why we work so hard to make a good quilt.
