Design Wall Monday, July 20, 2015

Started work on the San Diego Humane Society's 29th Annual Fur Ball donation.  The event takes place on August 22nd.  Kerry and I thought to make this year's donation with pigs and rabbits, but a change took place...  Instead this Buggy Barn pattern called Nick Nack Paddy Wack will be offered.  Who can't chuckle at the great designs from Buggy Barn?  It will be only four blocks big with a border.  The blocks are large finishing at 29" x 23".  The layout will be two by two with a border.  Should finish at a good size.  Above is the quilt in the book along with the background fabric.
 This photo shows the dogs and their backgrounds.
All of these are the dog house fabrics.

Here is the dog pattern.  The dog houses are simple squares, HSTs, a flying geese, and a rectangle.
I will be making two projects at the same time.  There are eight fabrics below the pattern pieces.
For ease of moving the project around it all fits nicely in a pizza box.

 Here is block one pieced together.  The eyes, nose, and bone will be felted wool stitched down by hand.  That part is the last of the assembly.
Here is block 1 with the dog house.  One done three more to go!
A decision will need to be made as the dogs are assembled on which four to use.  This is block 2 ready for stitching.

We have enjoyed a pleasant rain the last two days.  Much needed water for San Diego!  See other wonderful projects in work on the design walls of various quilters through the links at Patchwork Times.  Hope you have a terrific week.

That is a lot of pieces! But what cute doggies. : )
You always find such fun patterns for this event.
Do you name these quilts for donation with "K" names? I can't remember. Just thinking Kanine Kasas.

Love this project! The block you've finished is so cute, but my, what a lot of pieces to work through for each block! I am sure that won't slow you down too much :)
