More dogs

My friend Dawn (a non-quilter, but a lovely person for all that!) called yesterday evening, while I was busy sewing. She said, 'I'm not disturbing you, am I?' as people do, so I said I was happy to be disturbed, but I was making dogs. She was intrigued (or at least made a good play at it) so I showed her my pack. 'Lovely,' she said. 'But why are you making dogs?' It's a bit like the 'why are you climbing Everest?' question, only with rotary cutters rather than crampons!

Anyway, here are my dogs so far.

I don't know why I started to make them with plain cream backgrounds - I think it was a piece of fabric which just came to hand - but I've decided it needs a bit of variation, so the rest of the dogs will have patterned backgrounds to give the quilt a bit of texture. One of them looks rather cat-like. Drat! Never mind, some people quite like cats, I hear!

The dogs are so cute! I think a patterned background for some of them is a good idea.

you could leave a cat in there - the dogs need something to bark at and chase. love your "woof" - you've definitely developed your own style of letters. woohoo.

Your doggies are great, and I love your "woof"! They each have quite a bit of personality. Very clever! Are you making enough for a whole quilt?
Have you noticed that quilters often mystify non-quilters? Why do you think that is? Are we so different, or just a little nuts?

Oh these are just wonderful! I made a dog quilt once for my daughter, but I used all kinds of dog patterns. But these are way too cool!
