Woof! Woof! Congratulations to my good friend, Angie, who is getting married today! Since she loves dachshunds, I decided to make her a little wedding gift that represents the cute little dogs!
I used the “Chasing the Ball” quilt from Janet Kime’s book, It’s Raining Cats & Dogs. This adorable small quilt features 8 little weiner dogs running up and down to chase balls. I selected bright and cheerful fabrics to pop against the “doggie paw” white background. The finished size is approximately 26 inches by 24 inches. It can work as a wall-hanging or a table topper.
You can read about my start on this project back in July here.
Here is a look at the front of the finished quilt:
For the backing, I decided to mix it up by adding a strip of doxie fabric to the main polka-dot fabric:
The little dog noses are hand-embroidered with brown floss and the eyes are little black buttons.
I’m really happy with how this project turned out! I had fun paper-piecing all those little dogs and look forward to piecing my next animal quilt for my son (hint: it may be an African safari animal themed quilt).
P.S. Don’t forget! The Wicked Blog Hop starts next week. I’m so excited to reveal the project that I created especially for this hop!
Dackel, wackel Dackel ich mag sie. They are brillant These Dackel.
I have two little doxies so this quilt is beyond precious!
Fabulous quilt….love it!!
I just LOVE that! It reminds me of my doxie Freddy that we had when my boys were little! 🙂
