Yes, I have another finish. Truth: I finished it last month -- I just didn't get the photo shoot done. I took it with me when I did the Synergy photo shoot and took a few pictures of it too. So, with not further ado, here is Dogs and 9 Patches.
Here's a bit of the back and the front.
I bought the backing while at the Mid-Atlantic Quilt Show. It was on a 4 yard bolt for a reasonable price. My guess is it was an old fabric but it was perfect for this quilt back and it was new to me. Only draw back is I have nearly 3 yards left. (Bonus for either piecing or another smaller quilt!)
And this last picture shows the rock that Synergy completely covered.
Dogs and 9 Patches came from Even More Quilts for Baby: Easy as A B C by Ursula Reikes. The copyright date is 2000. Yes, it's old but I love this book. In this third book of the Quilts for Baby series Ursula shared 20 quilts. This one is actually called Nine Patch. Part of the reason I love all 3 of Ursula's books is they are easy to make baby size quilts but if you want bigger quilts it isn't hard to make them bigger. And, yes I own all three of the books and continue to use them to make quilts. I can't count how many quilts I've made from these three books.
The quilting design is Puppy Paws from Urban Elements. As usual, I used So Fine thread.
I probably will send this quilt to Cool Kids Clubhouse in North Carolina as part of Hands 2 Help. You can read more about this great organization here. How are you doing on your quilts for Hands 2 Help? It's about time for me to pick which quilts are going there and get them in the mail. I'm sure they would appreciate it if you sent a few quilts there also.
Today I am linking up with
I'm looking forward to some quiet surfing time this weekend as I finish another quilt. I hope you can sneak a peek at some of these Linky parties to see what's new.
Happy Quilting All! Bonnie
