Playing with Puppies

 Are you participating in the Dog Gone Cute Quilt Along? I am and will even be part of the blog hop on October 13th! Here is a link for more info 
I started playing with the puppies yesterday. This is the large block and the smaller block. I was trying to decide which size to make first and the smaller size was the winner.
 My first project is realistic looking dogs and I made these three blocks yesterday.
 Today, I made these two and 
 this one! I do want to make a whimsical version with some fun fabrics, so I think I might start working on some of those too, but first I need to get caught back up with the Farm Girl Vintage Sew Along.
The NFL season kicked off on Thursday night, so I am in game watching mode. My hubby hooked up the NFL Red Zone in my sewing room this season, so I can stitch away the day and not miss a point scored in any game. I prepped another block of my Cottage Garden quilt to work on while watching football and participating in Slow Sunday Stitching

My mom has quilted up several of the charity tops that have been donated and that I made, so I hope to get over and pick them up for pictures tomorrow. Rain is coming our way which is perfect quilting weather, but not so great for getting pictures. Go Broncos and have a great week!

  9. All your puppies are so cute! I'm going to make one of the 18X12 blocks for our oldest's partner for Christmas and turn it into a pillow cover. They have a little rescue dog that I'm going to "model" it after.

  19. Great to see the comparison in size - I haven't got round to doing that yet! I think the smaller may be winning for me too - but there should would be a lot to make for a single bed size. What are you planning to make with yours?

  21. Oh my gosh! Tanya, your puppies are so adorable!! Have to say, this would suck me in for sure if I wasn't so behind on a "designer" commission!
