Scottie Dog - a free quilt pattern!

The Scottie Dog free pdf pattern is my way of thanking all of my friends, old and new, for joining me and following me on my quilting journey. This past year has been of epic proportions for me, both as a quilter and as a person just trying to live the life. I could not have made it without you! And I truly appreciate your continued support and encouragement!

This quilt was begun in my old life. The top was completed. And now that I am back in the quilting saddle again since my move to a new home, this Scottie Dog quilt is finished!


There are so many options of how to make these little dogs. I went with a scrappy look. And wanted one of my dogs to be wearing a bow. 

It had been quite some time since I used a flanged binding, but this quilt just felt like it need that little extra zing. You can find my complete list of Binding Tutorials here

Last year at Quilt Market in Houston, I met Becky while I was there and she asked me to be a guest designer for December at International Association of Quilters.  What is the IAQ????

What other quilts did I make using this sweet Daisy Days (by Keera Job for Riley Blake) fabric fat quarter bundle?

The bundle was first cut into to make the the Smitten Kitten last October.

Then I made the Scottie Dogs which was the last thing I worked on before moving.

The fabrics for the Hedgehog spikes were made with some of the remaining scraps.

The "Scottie Dog" quilt finished at 38" x 50"
and was the 6th use of my 3rd edition of 100 labels
ordered from Ikaprint.

You can find the finished quilt listed for sale here in my Etsy Shop.

I am so glad you are back in the quilting saddle. You will never know how much your strength has encouraged me this year and helped me get back into the quilting saddle! You remind me that we are strong and we can do anything, it's all about positivity and looking forward. It was very sweet of you to share Scottie Dog with us. I have added him to my to do list :)

Tu-Na Quilts said...

Thank you for the free pattern. I must admit that I was a little anxious to download that pattern and went to your Etsy shop before completely reading your entire post. I had a wonderful look around at all the patterns you've designed. You are very talented and creative and I've enjoyed following you on your journey.

FabGab said...

These will make great kids' quilts. Thank you. Switch to light colors and they could be Westies or Wheatens.

Thank you so much, dear Lorna!!! I will sew a pillow with a white doggie for my grandchild, she lives her little dog....
All the best for you and your family, Katrin

Your brain is so creative. I love this doggie.
I still love the smitten kitten the best though.
Thank you Lorna for always inspiring and giving all of us
encouragement.... and patterns to try.

Scottie dogs are so fun! This would be cute in a Wizard of Oz quilt with the high heeled shoe. I especially love the bow tie, really snazzes up the little feller. You are so generous, and can't wait to try this one! Hugs

karen said...

Thank you so much for the scottie dog pattern. I'll be making a scrappy version using assorted Tula Pink fabrics. My daughter was quick to call dibs. :)

Anja @ Anja Quilts said...

You have had quite the year, but you made it!! These dogs are so cute. But that bowtie is so darn adorable.

Michelle @ From Bolt to Beauty said...

Eep! Such canine cuteness! Congratulations on this sweet finish. The flanged binding is spot-on. : )
