Doxies Running Up, Doxies Running Down!

Woof! Woof! Congratulations to my good friend, Angie, who is getting married today! Since she loves dachshunds, I decided to make her a little wedding gift that represents the cute little dogs!

I used the “Chasing the Ball” quilt from Janet Kime’s book, It’s Raining Cats & Dogs. This adorable small quilt features 8 little weiner dogs running up and down to chase balls. I selected bright and cheerful fabrics to pop against the “doggie paw” white background. The finished size is approximately 26 inches by 24 inches. It can work as a wall-hanging or a table topper.

You can read about my start on this project back in July here.

Here is a look at the front of the finished quilt:

For the backing, I decided to mix it up by adding a strip of doxie fabric to the main polka-dot fabric:

The little dog noses are hand-embroidered with brown floss and the eyes are little black buttons.

I’m really happy with how this project turned out! I had fun paper-piecing all those little dogs and look forward to piecing my next animal quilt for my son (hint: it may be an African safari animal themed quilt).

P.S. Don’t forget! The Wicked Blog Hop starts next week. I’m so excited to reveal the project that I created especially for this hop!

Enjoy!
