Pet Project – Puppy Quilt

After the Y-seams, the rows are connected and I custom fitted a triangle piece to even up the edges.

Now for the border and backing!

Straight seams are easy!
DSCN0880[1]I actually quilted this one myself, with the feed dogs down and free motion foot on.  I may have done a bit too much, but I am happy with the end result. The backing is a cute all over print that can disquise my amature free motion work! – Now all we need is the pup.

 

 

 

 

Quilting up a Puppy Project

OK – we are currently pet-less if that is a word, and I am thinking that it is time to get a puppy for our house.  The kids are grown and moving out, and I need some replacement for that missing time and attention given to the kids!!  So, I found this cute stack of fabrics with a puppy print and decided to make a tumbling blocks quilt – puppy sized.

This was my first attempt at a tumbling block quilt, and I think that the project would have been better with some higher contrast fabrics, or better planning in placement.  The hardest part? Y-Seams.  If you know of a pattern without using the Y-seam, let me know!

The best part was seeing the seams aligned after sewing down one side, then pivoting 1/4 inch before the corner, then sewing down the other side.  – all this piece needs is a little press with the iron.
