Scottie dogs – a UFO no longer

While searching for something else in the sewing room I came across the blocks left over from last year’s experiments with Scottie Dogs.   It was time that they became a quilt!

I handed the pile to my friend Donna who worked her magic and combined them into a 36” square top for a preemie quilt.  When the Scrappy Club members saw the results they decided that the big block was too “pixel-ly” – so Ellen took the top home and did some remedial piecing to make Big Scottie look more like a dog. 

Here is the result, all quilted and bound and ready for donation to the NICU at the regional hospital.

Here is a peek at the back – isn’t that the perfect flannel for this quilt!!  (You can’t see it in the picture, but the binding fabric has Scottie Dogs has well.)

I love the red and black dog, the biggest one, so perky! yes, that is ideal backing/binding. Nice! What is the destiny of this quilt?

I love this quilt. And doesn't it feel great to get one UFO off of the pile? Congratulations!!!
