Let’s Bee Social #88

Posted on: September 2nd, 2015 by Lorna McMahon

Yesterday was the official start of the Dog Gone Cute quilt along blog hop. Here is a link to that post, in case you missed it, and the link has been added to the Dog Gone Cute page tab at the top of my blog, under the header. There you will find the full schedule for the quilt along and blog hop. And each week, as we progress the links will become live as they are posted.

I am paws-atively proud and tickled pink to see all those dog gone cute blocks and projects showing up on my instagram feed. Today I want to share with you a project made by someone who was sweet enough to send me these adorable photos by email. Ann Casey doesn’t have a blog or instagram, but she gave me permission to share them here with you on the blog.

Ann Casey sent me these pictures of the pouch she made using the Dog Gone Cute pattern. She used her imagination to make the ears droopy and also added this sweet bow. What a Dog Gone Cute Pooch Pouch!

And here is the back, which is made from scraps of Cath Kidston fabric, brought to her from England by the dog’s owner. Love that big plus and the scrappy improv design!

And the model! Oh, that face! And those eyes!!!
Isn’t this just the Dog Gone Cutest pup ever?!!!!!

Thank you so much, Ann, for sharing these pictures with me and all the Sew Fresh Quilt readers out there! We enjoy seeing what can be made using the Dog Gone Cute pattern and a little imagination. Thanks so much for inspiring us!

    Wonder what kind of dog (puppy) that is? I saw an English Mastiff last night that was pretty much like that but of course much larger because she is grown. Cute pattern! LOVE LOVE LOVE the purple!

  11. you just have to love the pup!

  12. That block looks just like that sweet dog. So cute! I also want to tell you that I really appreciate the way you organize your blog with the headers. Yesterday, I added the finishing (applique) touches to my animals in the elephant parade, and it was nice to be able to find the patterns easily so I could be sure I knew where the eyes go.
