So cute. Some puppy or kiddo will love this.
desna answered:
Thank you, and Ruby loves it:)
Pamillia asked:
This is really cute & I like how your fussy cutting turned out. I like your pattern also. Thanks for sharing.
desna answered:
Thank you I am pleased how it turned out and I love trying new patterns.
Pam Sews asked:
it IS really perfect, I've never seen Dog Tooth block before and you "fussed" just right. Ruby must be delighted!
desna answered:
Thank you Pam although I cut one wrong and ran out of the blue fabric so had to patch... but then I thought it is patchwork haha!
Pam Sews asked:
My grandma said you had to make a "mistake" on every quilt because only God was perfect... so we had to find the (usually deliberate) mistake on every quilt...a bit like "Where's Waldo?" game. So, when someone spots my mistakes, I always say "I MEANT to do that!!" haha! I mean, why did they name it "patchwork" if they didn't mean us to be literal about it?!
desna answered:
Thats good to know:) because Ive have made a mistake of some sort on each of mine so far. I will use what your grandma said if anyone points out my mistakes:))))
mpac5000 asked:
This saying comes from the Amish from what I was told when we sold fabric in amish country.
desna answered:
Very interesting:) I am actually reading a book 'Sisters of the Quilt (the complete trilogy)' by Cindy Woodsmall it is very good and a wonderfl insight into the Amish community. I reccommend it to you all:)
