A fellow Boston Modern Guild member gave me this "Dog Park" fabric designed by Sarah Frederking for Studio E fabrics. She said as soon as she saw it, she thought of me! How great is that!!
Another friend, who also loves dogs, is having a baby soon. They don't know if it's a boy or a girl so for her baby quilt needs to be gender neutral. As soon as I saw this dog fabric, I knew they'd love it!
I cut the charm squares (5 x 5 inches patches) to match the colors in the doggie feature fabric. The patches of "Dog Park" fabric are in diagonal pairs, randomly placed in the quilt top. I love how bright and cheerful this quilt is!
The quilting is stitch-in-the-ditch with a walking foot across the entire grid of blocks. Then I added 3 sections of diagonal stitching and two more sections of vertical stitching running between the top and middle diagonals. The added quilting gives this simple quilt an interesting texture, more visible in the photos since it's already be washed.
I used the "Dog Park" fabric for the backing of the quilt. This makes it a fun, reversible baby quilt!
I can't wait to see what my friend thinks of this quilt I made for her baby!
