puppy quilt: finished!

During the snowzilla, I made 6 puppy blocks
After spending a couple days at home sewing,
we had to go back to work and reality...
But I was able to steal some time here and there
and set my puppy blocks into a simple quilt:



My first quilt of the year and we are still in January!

I love how it turned out,
it is fun and modern, and very kid friendly!
The puppy print was my inspiration, just the right level of cuteness.

I set the blocks so that the puppy heads are floating,
with a same color sashing,
simple but perfect for the boldness of the heads.

It is fun to look at them and think of dogs we know that look like them,
it turns out we can name most dogs,
the top black dog could totally be Malou!
The backing is a matching print to the front puppy head, but this time with full body.
Since the quilt was a little too wide, I added a band of motorcycle print,
don't you know it totally makes sense?

I will be sending this quilt to my nephew for his second birthday
For his first Christmas, I made him a puppy book,
so I am keeping the theme!




Happy sewing!
