Lab puppies!! I'm really looking forward to working on this new quilt project. I'm using my Black Lab Puppies fabric, available at my shop at Spoonflower.com, and some of my stashed collection of 1930s feed sack reproduction fabrics.
The puppies are printed on baby blue, light blue, aqua, pink and peach backgrounds--all colors which coordinate beautiful with the 30s fabrics.
My fussy cut Lab Puppies block is 4 inches x 5 inches. I'll pair them with striped blocks the same finished size. The strips for the pieced block are cut 2 inches wide. Sewing 3 strips together with 1/4 inch seams gives a block 5 inches wide. The strip pieced section can then be cut in 4 inch lengths to make 4 x 5 inch finished blocks.
I've put my cut strips in my drawstring bag and am going to try random piecing for the strip blocks! (I'm not good at sticking to random. We'll see)!!
It's going to be a happy, scrappy quilt!
