Baby Quilt #3

Here is baby quilt #3 for 2014 ~ This baby quilt is about 38x38

It is hard to see the puppy in the corner squares.

I fussy cut the puppies from a piece of flannel that was extra from a backing. The beige fabric has rabbits on it. My granddaughter quilted this one for me, she is 13. She wanted to try a more complex freehand quilting pattern  and then we decided that she should just try some waves and practice keeping the spacing pretty even between the rows. She did a pretty good job. Guess I am going to have to load some muslin and let her practice whatever she wants!

The puppy blocks are 3 inches squares and the strips were cut at 2 inches. I had just enough red paw print fabric with about 1 inch left over that went into my string bin.

It is much cuter in person. This quilt is being saved until I find an local organization to donate it to.

Linking up with Michelle's Baby-Quilt-A-Week post....

The fussy cut pups are adorable!!!!! What a great hobby to have in common with your grandaughter! (My aunt got me started as a quilter and I'll never forget her buying me my first cutting board and rotary cutter!!)

So cute! Love this quilt... a (fussy cut) puppy in the corner. The pattern is close to "Puss in the Corner", a pattern from the old days, so it's kind of a pun, too. Brilliant!
