|"Dog Gone Cute" quilt with Paw Print borders finishes at 74" x 74"|
Last week I ran a workshop for the Dufferin Piecemakers near Orangeville. One of the participants, Lynda chose the Dog Gone Cute pattern to work on that day. You can see her sweet dog blocks here. She expressed an interest in having a paw print block to add to the border. So today I am sharing the Paw Print bonus border block instructions for the Dog Gone Cute quilt along.
These instructions are for the Large Block quilt. My original Dog Gone Cute quilt can be seen here. If you would like to make a Dog Gone Cute quilt, this is a free quilt. The instructions can be found by clicking on the Quilt Alongs tab beneath my blog header.
The original cutting instructions call for strips to be cut for the sashing and borders. If you want to add the Paw Print Border Blocks, use these instructions instead:
From the Background cut (6) strips at 10.5” for borders and cut (5) strips at 2.5” for sashing
Join and cut the 10.5” border strips to (2) strips at 74.5” long and (2) strips at 50.5” long
Join and cut the 2.5” sashing strips to (3) strips at 54.5” long
Step 1: Sew 2 of the Black B strips between the Background C and * strips. Trim the end of the strip set and then crosscut into 8 @ 1.5" wide units.
Step 2: Sew the Background D strips between the 2 remaining Black B strips. Trim the end of the strip set and then crosscut into 8 @ 1.5" wide units.
Step 3: Place the Background A squares on the corners of the Black E rectangles, with right sides facing together. Sew along the diagonal as shown in red. Trim the seam to 1/4" and press open. Sew the Background F rectangles on each side of the unit. Make 8.
Step 4: Sew the units made in the previous steps together as shown. Make 8.
Step 5: Sew a Background G rectangle on opposing sides of the paw units. Sew the units into a column as shown. Make 2.
Step 6: Sew a Background 10.5” x 50.5” on the bottom of the Paw Print Border Block. Make 2.
