This puppy dog was originally designed for my nephew when I was first getting started. I have smoothed it out some since then.Grandma loves to put baby's name, birth date, and weight on their baby quilt. The dog's ball is the perfect place to do that.
This puppy is a great one for baby boys or girls simply by changing the color of the ball, or leave it neutral.
3 sizes: Main instruction is for the crib size 36"x42". the pattern also has measurements for a small 24"x28" and large 48"x56"". I had a customer tell me she made a crib size one for baby and the larger lap size for big brother so they could each get a new quilt when baby arrived.
Skill Level: Beginner The pattern lists fabric yardage, then uses tables to show the number of strips to cut and the number of pieces to cut from those strips. The entire top is then sewn using straight 1/4" seams. The shaping is done with quick corner triangles also called the snowball method. There are some instructional videos on youtube. Just search Counted Quilts.
Selecting Fabrics: Due to the fact that the pattern pieces may be sewn both horizontally and vertically to make the picture we recommend using non-directional fabric.
