Electric Quilt sketch - Dog themed quilt
For retiring co-worker Linda C.
Fabrics from stash
Dog fabric must have been a donation, because I don't recall buying it.
After spying at Linda's desk, she appears to like dogs. Linda dresses very classically, often wearing red and black. I think this dog fabric will work well for her, since it's fun without being too cartoonish.
Large square of theme fabric
Inadvertently cut 15", .5" too short, but didn't have enough yardage to re-cut at the proper size. So I went with the flow and cut all of the squares 15". I plan to make up the difference by making the border a bit wider.
First strip sewn to the side
Strip added to the bottom
There are just 9 large blocks like this, so the quilt should go together quickly.
Trying out the red border fabric. I like it. The white dots add a little femininity and interest. I have some plain red fabric, as well, but at the moment I'm leaning toward the print.
