Everyone seems to have that special pet in their life. Here is a sample of my “Dogs Only” paper pieced quilt done by my sweet customer, Jan. Didn’t she do a great job? I love when my friends share their photos!
This quilt was designed using photos of real pets sent to me by my customers and friends. They were my inspiration.
Here is a charity quilt sewn by Faith. She used just 1 of my block patterns, then added lots of borders. Very clever, especially if you want a fast project! Thanks for sharing, Faith.
And here are 2 very cute pillows shared by Edie. These pit bulls are named Duece and Daisy, as you can see. Edie used my Pit Bull pattern.
Here are some other dogs that I designed from customer’s requests.
And, 1 of my all time favorites, the Chinese Crested. When I was asked to design the Chinese Crested, I asked if that was a “bird”! No kidding, I had never heard of it. After finding out it is a somewhat hairless dog, I thought, “Oh my, this block might be really ugly!” However, it turned out to be one of my faves. It reminds me of a little fairy dog.
Thanks to all of my wonderful customers and friends who share their photos. It means a lot to see how much you enjoy your paper piecing. If there is a dog pattern you want, and don’t see it on my Etsy shop, please let me know and if you can share a photo of your pet, even better!
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.
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.
My Cats N’ Dogs Quilt was inspired by a customer asking for some dog blocks for her son, who is a huge dog lover. Once I start designing blocks for a particular subject, I get on a roll and come up with a dozen different designs. In this instance, I like them all. And why stop at dogs…let’s toss in a few cats as well.
Here’s my neighbor’s Schnauzer. He walks this dog every morning and he (my neighbor, not the dog) is always carrying a cup of coffee as he walks. I always thought that was interesting, since he lives a number of blocks away from me and still juggles that cup of coffee on his morning walk with Schnauzer.
This is “Who Dat Cat”. I love the expression on her face! I want to make an entire quilt just using this cat in all different colors.
And here is “Happy Dog”. He looks like he wants to leap right out of the quilt in glee!
This quilt would be a fun block of the month project! Is anyone interested in doing this with me on my website?
