Puppy Love

It never fails, just when I have a busy week with lots of deadlines looming, that's when I tend to get sick.  Well that's what happened last week.  With a week already full with things to do, I decided that Wednesday night I needed to make it more interesting by starting to come down with the flu.  Luckily I had picked a design for my Project Quilting project that was not too complicated, and I was able to finish it by Friday before I really became worthless for the rest of the weekend. 

The challenge was to go for a Valentine theme without it being overtly pink/red.  Right away I came up with "Puppy Love", a quilt that can hang on a door, or the wall in a mud room, that has plenty of pockets for holding all of those dog supplies that need to be kept together and handy when needed, but up and out of the way when not.

I like to make quilts that are functional and this one has four square pockets are made of wool for nice texture and sturdiness, then two larger pockets that are made of cotton, and sectioned off.  

Along with wool appliques, I embellished it with cute twill ribbon with paw prints and dog bones,

and the little stacked heart/flower wool embellishment that I made the other day ended up here :)

The Project Quilting voting is up now.  Go Here and check out all of the wonderfully creative entries, I'm always in awe of what everyone comes up with ~ and make sure you leave a comment to be entered in the give away!

Enjoy the day!
