Let’s Bee Social #175
Welcome to the Let’s Bee Social!
So glad to have you join us for the Let’s Bee Social weekly linky party!
You could say this week….
Things around here have gone to the dogs…..
These two Husky dog blocks were designed for my good friend Elaine. She is also known as Crazy Quilter on a Bike and her blog can be found here. She has a Husky named Lexi.
I have quite a few pillow inserts hanging around, so I decided to turn these two blocks into matching cushion covers. Because I did not have enough of either of the paw print fabrics used for the background, I made one with the darker blue and one with the lighter blue, and trimmed the blocks to 18″ square after quilting. But my pillow inserts were 20″ square, so these guys are quite stuffed!
I used grey thread for the organic wavy line quilting on both.
The quilting stands out more on the darker one, but blends in more with the lighter one.
The backings were made using a heavy decor weight fabric that I picked up at a second hand shop a long time ago. I have used it previously to recover a couple of my kitchen chairs. And I decided to keep it simple by using the envelope style of closure.
And over on Instagram, I was tagged by Jessica when she posted a request for help. Her dog Jenny was dying, and has since passed. Jessica was hoping for help to create a memory quilt using the Dog Gone Cute design. She was asking for white dogs on a pink background using the large size block.
