Sew and Tell Friday- Scrappy the Dog

I have been seeing quite a few of these little guys out in blog land. He is a free pattern by Denise Schmidt. I had a little yesterday and thought he would be fun to make. Being as he is so scrappy and my theme at quilt guild is Scrap Happens Make A Quilt. And I wouldn't be a very good leader if I didn't set a good example and make something scrappy. So I pulled out my 2 1/2" squares and went to town.
I didn't do a very good job with the inside corners so his ear and tail are a little skewumpus. But DD loves him. I was thrilled to have the fun blue, pink and yellow ric rac that I had found at a thrift store to make his collar. It matches him perfectly don't you think.
And the timing in get him done couldn't be better because now I have something for Amy's fun Sew and Tell. Thank you Amy for hosting Sew and Tell. It is always so much fun. Go check out what everyone else has done. Amy has some very cute bags that she made.Posted by Picasa

  3. He really is cute -- and it looks like his ear is cocked for listening and he's wagging his tail!

  4. We love it over here! So what iIf he's wagging his tail a bit?

    (I have been marking Anna's plain white quilt border every 2 inches to match it up to the squares to prevent any puckering.)

    We still think he's fabulous and I am getting requests!

  12. Hi Em, I have a book with the pattern of the cute little dog. He is very nice, and a great way to use up those little bits you just can't throw out. Kind regards, Anita.

  26. I recently made one myself! Isn't it funny how we all see one and start making them all over the place. I had a hard time with the inside corners, too. It was tricky! Yours is cute!
