Let’s Bee Social #120
Welcome to the Let’s Bee Social and thank you so much for making this party such a success!
Today I have a very special finish to share with you. But not a finish of mine….
It was back in January when I received my first email from Ann. We emailed back and forth for a bit. She wanted to make the Dog Gone Cute quilt, but had not quilted in quite some time. So she had a few questions.
Ann said, “Awesome, you’re the best, thanks!
I have not quilted for about 30 years so I have to dust off all of my stuff.
I have a cutting board, wheel and all the things I need.
Expecting my first grandchild so I thought I better get started!”
Ann continued to email me with a few more questions. I can’t imagine going without quilting for so long and not being a little rusty. I encouraged her to first just make one block. I knew that if she could get her first block done, it would all come back to her.
Ann said, “YAY… dog one out of 24.
I thought after all the bugging I have done asking you questions
you would like to see my first success… and it measures 6.5 x 9.5… perfect.”
Now this past Monday Ann announced, “Woo hoo… I just finished the quilt.
Here are pictures. The one that looks like there is nothing there
is a close up of the dog paw I quilted between the dogs….
and it was dog gone fun to do, too!”
Size is 39″ x 46″
Here you can see the cute paw print quilting….
Ann also sent along a photo of her models
and said, “I thought you would enjoy seeing a picture
of my dog Xena (the one on the right)… she is a poster dog for your pattern.
Now you can see why I loved “Dog Gone Cute” so much!!!
Lucky is not far off either… he died a couple years ago
and now I have another second rescued pit mix.“

I am so proud of Ann and her Dog Gone Cute quilt.
And I have a feeling that this will be the first of many quilts to come.
Made with love for her family and friends!
