Is anyone up for a Dog Gone Cute quilt along blog hop?
Then grab a button below and share it on your blog!

Sew Fresh Quilts


A quilt along is always more fun than quilting alone. And a blog hop helps to spread the fun around!

Designed in EQ7 – mock up of Dog Gone Cute pattern in Backyard Baby fabrics

To participate only in the Quilt Along, tune in to Sew Fresh Quilts beginning on September 1st, when block and quilt size options, and details of fabric requirements will be shared. Or you can purchase the pattern and quilt along at your own pace. Each week following September 1st, instructions for the piecing of the various dog blocks will be given. In November, a linky party will be available to share your flickr and instagram photos or your Dog Gone Cute blog posts.

Participants of the Blog Hop portion will be placed on a schedule where we can come to visit you at your blog on your “Show It Off” day during October. Participants of the blog hop portion will be required to purchase a copy of the Dog Gone Cute quilt pattern, but will be reimbursed following the last day of the blog hop providing they do their part to help make the blog hop a success. The success of a blog hop depends on the participant’s willingness to commit and follow through with their obligation:

  1. to make something quilted using the Dog Gone Cute pattern
  2. to blog about it in time for their day on the hop
  3. to visit the other participants on their “Show It Off” day.

Other than fun, what else does the Dog Gone Cute Quilt Along Blog Hop have to offer????



Thanks to some of the Sew Fresh Quilts sponsors, there will be awesome prizes available to be won!
More details to come in future posts. Hope you will be following along!

Please leave me a comment if you are planning to participate in the Quilt Along.
Send me an email if you would like to be on the schedule for the Blog Hop.
Please add the button to your blog to help spread the word!

Now it’s time for the linky party!!!!! What’s buzzing at your hive?
