What materials did you use? Pet inspired Cotton calico prints Warm & natural batting

What are you most proud of? Designed to resemble little brown polkadot doggie bones. The quilt is 42" x 30". The pillow is 12 x 16" I made the pillow cover out of white muslin and 'stuffed' it with polyester batting. However, one can find readymade pillows at various fabric and department stores. The pillowcase matches the nap mat. I machine quilted the mat. The fabrics were pet inspired prints.

This is sssssooooo cute. I have been looking for a "different" quilt pattern for my pet, Max. This is perfect for him. Could you tell me where to get this pattern, please? Thanxs, Bev B

The quilt block is the 'mini bow tie' block. Here is a link for it: http://www.quilterscache.com/M/MiniBowTieBlock.html

However, I used 2-1/2" squares, and alternated the "four patch' that creates the bow tie, with 4-1/2" squares of plain fabric. This gives the appearance of 'bones" (at least that's what I thought). So, if you use the link I gave you below, then all you need for each 'bone block' is ONE of the four patch blocks. Then you can border it as you like, and the pillow case fits a pillow I made for the ensemble. Any more questions, please feel free to ask. Thanks for your interest.

Actually the plain squares should be 5". I have 'senior moments' at times. Just noticed this. Sorry if it created any problems for you.
