As you may have seen in a previous post, I have been working on a quilt for the local chapter of the SPCA. Today they are having a huge fundraiser, and I only hope this beauty can bring them in some money.
I am partial to dogs, so yes there is a lot of dog print throughout the quilt. But I did manage to incorporate some cats. And owls. And birds. And Ladybugs. Overall I think it is rather a happy quilt. I love making rag quilts, they are so simple and when finished after a few washes, they are just simply adorable.
I also included a label for the quilt using our blog name and then personalized it with the letter L to denote I made the quilt. ( Kate, yours will be in the mail soon! I promise! )
You can make your own custom labels on spoonflower.com I have read thru various blogs. But I did the quick and dirty method with an iron on since I was in a hurry to get this quilt donated.
After finishing the SPCA rag quilt, I decided I really wanted to try making something else before I started my next rag quilt (I have a special request for a hello kitty style rag quilt- which I will be starting on this weekend)
I really has been a simple quilt to put together with accomplishing half of this Thursday night alone. I will say, it is isn't perfect, but as Kate says, it has design elements :)
I also started on the back. I have a hard time just putting a solid color back there or just hodge podging stuff together after I worked so hard on the front. So I took a few left over squares (math was not my forte Thursday evening) and made this. It isn't finished. I ran out of white fabric. So when I go to the store to get some batting, I will be looking to match the remaining hole.
Hope everyone has a great weekend! Happy quilting.
