Cute as can be and just in time for Christmas, this table runner sports “3 Dogs and 1 Sassy Cat“. Animal lovers will enjoy this sweet holiday project. It’s easy to make, and the borders resemble a “scallop”, but is pieced. So easy!
Stocking Hat Dog
Candy Cane Dog
Turtleneck Dog (hint* If you are new to paper piecing, start with this dog)
And the Sassy Cat!
Here’s a close-up of the scalloped border.
I love this border so much, I am using it in my next table runner design…tune in next time 🙂
“3 Dogs and 1 Sassy Cat” pattern is available on Etsy and Craftsy.
Potholder directions are not included in this download, just the paper pieced block patterns.
Thanks for stopping by. I hope you enjoy my fun Halloween creations. Attached is a photo of a table runner made from 3 of my Halloween block patterns. Thank you, Wanda, for sharing your cute table runner. And here’s an adorable table topper by Shelley, using all of my Halloween blocks.
Shelley used my Christmas Tree Skirt pattern to assemble this table topper so she could use 8 different Halloween blocks. Didn’t she do an awesome job?!?!
I love seeing my friends’ creations using my patterns. Please share by sending me photos at my email: firstname.lastname@example.org
I love designing Halloween patterns. Here are some of my favorite designs from 2017.
Batty Bat is sold as part of the “Boo Collection“. I love the simplicity of this design. It sews together easily, and it would make an adorable potholder or pillow.
Spooky Spider is so darn cute. This pattern is also found in the “Boo Collection“. I used pin stripe white and black fabric for his teeth, but they could also be stitched on top of white fabric with black thread, or drawn with a black permanent pen.
Fraidy Cat is 1 of my favorite cat patterns, and I have designed many cats!
The “Boo Collection” is a table runner/potholder pattern which includes 6 different Halloween blocks. I’ll share more Halloween block photos next time, including that adorable “Skat Cat” in my featured image. Stay tuned…
Some of my favorite paper pieced dog patterns have been inspired by my sweet customers and friends.
This Pit Bull design was inspired by the photo below, sent to me by a loyal customer.
What a sweet heart of a pit bull! I’ve never owned a pit bull, and, admittedly, it wasn’t on my list of dog patterns to tackle. But when I saw this adorable pup, I was in love.
These pillows were made by Edie Fagg, a super sweet customer, using my Pit Bull pattern. I love to see how others interpret my patterns, choosing their own fabrics to express themselves in a creative manner.
Here’s a pillow created by Julie Rosenthal. Love that tiny checked fabric on the dog’s face! Super cute choice, Julie!
Please keep sharing your photos. It’s so much fun to see what you are creating.
If you like to donate for “Quilts of Valor”, this is a great pattern for you. This patriotic quilt, measuring 39″x 52″, incorporates lots of different quilting methods: piecing, paper piecing (my favorite!!), and applique. It is also a “scrap loving” quilt, since so often the fabrics are donations.The bold chevron pattern is so rich, from using different values of reds, creams, and whites. This is why scraps work so well.
Here is a smaller version of this quilt done as a 21″ x 21″wall hanging. And wouldn’t it make a sweet pillow, too?
I love how the stripes appear to be “waving”. It’s a super easy technique.
The Homeward Bound Quilt/Wall Hanging pattern is available on Etsy or Craftsy.
The 2 Breezy Butterfly blocks pictured above can be found on my Craftsy and Etsy shops for FREE. These paper pieced patterns can be used for summer potholders, pillows, a table runner or even a butterfly quilt.
