Pup One, Pup Two

   
      Today I'm sharing my progress on the dog gone quilt along blocks.

     May I introduce you to Pup One



     and Pup Two.



     These guys are the smaller size of the Dog Gone Cute quilt along that Lorna is running at Sew Fresh Quilts.  I'm having lots of fun making these blocks.  Some of the pieces are quite small but I'm liking the results. 

Here they are together.



 They are going to make one cute lap sized quilt.  I'll have to make extra puppies to get it to the size I want.

     The background fabric is quilters linen by Robert Kaufman which is 100 percent cotton but with a textured look to the fabric.  I've used it before in grey and I really love it.  So far the pups are made of scraps.  I'm planning on a rainbow of puppies.  

     I'll have to wait to share other things I have been working on because I'm off to my second meeting of this week.  This is my busy season at work, and my life is very full. On Saturday I'm at a trade show for the day and I'm spending Monday to Wednesday of next week in meetings in a neighbouring city.  

I'm linking up with Let's Bee Sewcial at Sew Fresh Quilts.

Lovely pups!

Oh, these two pups are bright and fun! That background fabric is perfect for this and gives just the right amount of contrast to those brights and the white. Going to have to look into trying some of that out. Looking forward to seeing all the new additions to your pack as you find the time to quilt between meetings!

Very fun! I really like your prints.

Adorable pups, Lisa! That background is great. Still haven't caved, but crumbling fast, lol. My dogs each need a cover for their daybeds (yep, night bed and daybed, spoiled fur kids) and my grandson would probably love a puppy quilt since he can't have one of his own (allergic), and I keep seeing these cuties all over the 'net!

Your pups look great, and seeing them in a rainbow will be delightful! Good luck getting through this buy season, but at least you have something cute and fun to sew in your free time. :)

I love your pups. I don't know how it works, but I reckon the different fabric choices give each one a different facial expression.
