Holiday sewing is in full swing over here. I’ve completely taken over the house with my projects — there are stacks of fabric strewn all over the place, two ironing boards covered in WIPS, and thread snippits everywhere. Yeah, I’ve made a mess.
My first project is a small dog quilt for a family member. My poor dog will never have a handmade quilt to call her own, but I know this quilt will make one person (and maybe one dog!) very happy on Christmas morning.
Since it is for a dog, I went with colors that would hide dirt — grey, tangerine, gold, and a touch of cream. Next I pulled coordinating prints from 2wenty Thr3e and Comma, and added Bella Solids in Tangerine, Mustard and Etching Stone.
I cut the tumblers using my new Accuquilt Go Baby, which I bought just for this die. In general, I prefer my Sizzix fabric cutter, but the Accuquilt Tumbler die includes special cut outs for the dog ears. At any rate, the Accuquilt made quick work a huge stack of fabric. My little one helped randomize the tumblers for chain-piecing, and we had ourselves a quilt top in no time.
I followed the shape of the tumblers with some straight-line quilting, and ta da! We’re ready for the binding!
