Let’s Bee Social #137

Posted on: August 10th, 2016 by Lorna McMahon
This past weekend I made some more Dog Gone Cute blocks.

Just like with my Black Bird baby quiltmy  Dog Gone Cute quilts were both listed and sold in my Etsy shop. That was before I planned to be participating as a vendor at the International Plowing Match in Harriston in AugustBecause the Dog Gone Cute pattern has been one of my more popular patterns, I wanted to have a sample to hang in the booth.

My original large block quilt can be seen here and the mini quilt version was posted here.

This time I decided to change things up. I chose to use two different grey Toscana fabrics for the main patches on the dog faces and instead of using white, I used the Blossom print left over from the backing on the Ay, Chihuahua quilt. That background print, which is Alpine by Moda, was also featured as the boy dog blocks in the Ay, Chihuahua quilt.

If you would like to make a Dog Gone Cute quilt, this is a free quilt along on my blog. The instructions can be found by clicking on the Quilt Alongs tab beneath my blog header.


Every now and then I make a mistake. Yesterday’s post was supposed to simply be a post about the upcoming quilt show in Harriston. But I had added the link up by accident. So the Let’s Bee Social was available a day early.

And it is officially back again today!
It’s your turn for Show and Tell!!!

    I agree with everybody else, the floral fabric makes those puppies so sweet.

    I really like seeing these cute pups with a little floral accent… very sweet! I suppose selling your quilt was not such a bad thing after all… it means you get to make a new one! Have a great time at your show!

  7. The unexpected floral print just adds extra personally to you dogs!

    I love the floral print on the puppies. I can never get enough of this quilt. Mine hangs in my bedroom 🙂

  13. Cheryl says:

    I really like this version. I would never have thought to use a floral print in a dog's face, but it works so well and gives the doggie faces interest! It looks so great combined with the near solids and really ties all of the dog faces together.

  14. Sarah Craig says:

    Such cute blocks! I love the way the piecing makes some of the pups look like they have one ear cocked and the other down! I may have to visit this pattern someday in the future…

  15. Jayne says:

    What fabrics did you use for the fish? I really like the blue. When I saw the pattern called for blue and orange, I wasn't so sure how it would look. But it's wonderful!
