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. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Rotary Cut Familiar with 1/4" seams SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS 32"x39" Wallhanging

Recommended with this pattern

  • 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.

In the picture, I am wearing one of my "qweaters," that is a quilt-sweater combination, with knitted back, sleeves, and quilted front. In the background is the Quilter's Newsletter January 1999 cover quilt, my Snow Crystals quilt. Although I have been playing with fabrics and threads since childhood, I did not make my first quilt until 1969. By 1982 quilting became my passion. I have had several years of in-depth study of quilt history, design and techniques with some very traditional and non-traditional quilt teachers. One of my quilts won an Honorable Mention at the American Quilt Society in Paducah, KY and have had eight quilts juried into that same show. Four of my quilts have also been in the International Quilt Association in Houston, TX. I also have had numerous patterns and books published. My book "A Thread Runs Through It," is based on my one-woman play, which has been an honor to present to guilds. Some quilt classes I teach are on the web at My website also keeps me busy. For almost 15 years I have been presenting an Applique Block of the Month at
