Puppy & Friends

This animal lover's quilt features a puppy and his cat friends. Fish and bones create a playful atmosphere for these pals. Practice points making squares, triangles and rectangles.

From snuggly flannels to bright spring cottons, use your scraps to create unique looks. 


Size (block sizes are given as unfinished blocks - not yet stitched together)

Each individual cat block measures 12.5" high x 12" wide
Each individual fish block measures 12.5" high x 12" wide
Each individual bone block measures 12.5" high x 14.5" wide
The puppy block measures 12.5" high x 14.5" wide

NOTE: My previous design was different in that the cat did not have a tail. I added a 1.5" tail to each cat, so made adjustments to the fish block as well. You can omit the tail if you wish.

When all blocks and rows are stitched together, the quilt measures 36.5" high x 37.5" wide

All seams are 1/4".

Supplies

Your choice of fabric for: cats, background, fish, bones and dog (see below) 
Note: You will get entirely different looks by changing your fabrics. Use the same fabric for all 4 cats, use different fabrics for each cat, use the same fabric for all of the background, make each block a different background etc. The dog's ear must be a different fabric from the dog body in order to show up. It is best to use fabrics for the objects that contrast to the background in order for them to show up.

Allow extra if you are using one-directional fabric. Remember to pre-wash and dry your fabric before cutting to ensure the correct size. The amounts below allow for some shrinkage and some extra in case of errors. These quantities assume a width of 45" for the fabric bolt.

Other
thread to match background of fabric
machine embroidery thread (if you wish to add machine embroidered whiskers)
four 4" square pieces of stabilizer (if you wish to add machine embroidered whiskers)
large sewing ruler (optional but nice to have)
scissors or rotary cutter / cutting mat
pins
