Meet Fluffy. Although I have enjoyed working on this remake of the Dog Gone Cute quilt, Mr. McFluffster says it really is all about him. Because the Dog Gone Cute has been one of my more popular patterns, I wanted to have a sample to hang in the booth next week.
This time I decided to change things up. I chose to use two different grey Toscana fabrics for the main patches on the dog faces and instead of using white, I used the Blossom print left over from the backing on the Ay, Chihuahua quilt. That background print, which is Alpine by Moda, was also featured as the boy dog blocks in the Ay, Chihuahua quilt.
If you would like to make a Dog Gone Cute quilt, this is a free quilt along on my blog. The instructions can be found by clicking on the Quilt Alongs tab beneath my blog header.
I used to quilt a lot using plain white Gutermann thread. But now it seems like I am always using this Light Grey Omni from Superior Threads, both on top and in the bobbin. It could be that in the past, most of my quilts had a white background and now I am making a lot of quilts with a grey background. The grey thread plays nicely with all the colours and blends in well.
It has been a super long time since I made a flanged binding. For this finish I chose to use the backing fabric for the accent and the floral print for the main fabric. You can find my Flanged Binding Tutorial here, if you'd like to give it a try. It's a really easy binding method and gives your project a stylish touch.
