Wall Hanging

Skill Level:

small skill level requirement Beginner

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Rotary Cut
  • Familiar with 1/4" seams

Pattern Description:

These happy pups are so welcoming. Only their "waggly tails," are seen, but can't you just "see" their expressions? To make this a twin bed quilt, simply multiply the number of blocks by 4. Quick piecing techniques are included in the instructions--no templates. The pattern is fully illustrated with drawings to make it easy to get these puppies on the wall.

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • 32"x39" Wallhanging


  • 5/8 yard background fabric, beige or light brown print, maybe a batik. Good contrast with the puppy fabrics.
  • Three Fat Quarters (18"x21") Each different, in brown, gray and/or black prints. Or use bright color fabric prints, to make fun fantasy pups.
  • 1/8 yard of three bright fabrics to use for the collars. Only a 1"x3-1/2" rectangle for each puppy is needed; scraps would do.
  • One yard of fabric for the border This allows for lengthwise strips, to make seamless borders and eliminate stretching, that leads to wavy borders.
  • 1-1/2 yards for backing, this includes fabric for a rod pocket, to use the quilt as a wallhanging.
  • 1 yard fabric for the binding, these strips are also cut lengthwise.
  • Rotary Cutting Set, and a 6" or 6-1/2" square is helpful.
  • Ivory, off-white or gray 100% Cotton thread
  • Crib size batting, cotton or polyester.
  • Thread for hand or machine quilting.
  • Basic sewing supplies and sewing machine.
  • Quarter Inch Foot for your machine.
  • Optional--Quick Quarter II from Quilter's Rule
