Fussy Cutting the Boston Terriers

I actually did the work below back in June.  I just realized I hadn't posted about it, so here it is.

Dottie the Boston Terrier Fabric
Special ordered from Spoonflower.com
One fat quarter (approx. 18" x 22")

Template for 4.5" unfinished squares

Centered as best I could, colored over Dottie's eyes, which will help me place the template for all of the squares.

Template marked for placement

Look closely to see the outline of the squares.  I cut them out with scissors instead of the rotary cutter.  Accuracy was more important than speed.

Nine Boston Terriers--enough to do the design.

The fussy cut motif.  Cute!

There is some waste but I'm okay with that.  This is the leftover usable fabric.  I might make a little bag with it or maybe use it on the back.  We'll see.
