I hope you’re enjoying this bit of show & tell! I had so much fun this (very cold & long) winter. It’s the perfect time to dream & design. It was too cold to be out anyway, so why not sew?
My next pattern I have to give credit to my daughter, Clare. She is quite the artist. She likes to draw, design, color, AND quilt too! At 13 years old she is amazing. 2-3 years ago she drew the cutest little puppy. It was so cute that I hung it on our frig for quite a long time. I knew I wanted to do something with that cute puppy one day. So, finally this design came to me and I made a table runner and little quilt.
Meet Clare’s Christmas Puppy:
Isn’t he cute?
I can say that because I didn’t create him, I just made him into a quilt. You can’t tell from this little photo of him, but I used wool that I felted. I still used fusible web and machine stitched him with a buttonhole stitch. In case you can’t tell the tag says “Merry Christmas.”
Don’t be surprised if you see Clare’s puppy in other designs in the future. I really like him!
Look for him at your local quilt shop, or you can purchase him here.
Until next time,
