vintage puppy love quilt

This quilt finally made it out of my head and into the real world.  I got the puppy pillow fabric for a quarter at a thrift store and used the accuquilt apple core die for the rest.  A lot of the fabric was thrifted, free, or left over.  I really wanted to make a single fabric border with the apple core die.  I didn't purchase enough fabric, so I had to put on my thinking cap.  I sewed a border row for one top and one side.  I then cut it down the middle and attached wavy edge to wavy edge.  I was tickled because it looks like ric rac.

 For the backing and binding (since I am low on stash), I got some fabric from Hancock's of Paducah for less than $3/yard after discounts.  It is a baby type print but it fits this quilt.

 Puppy is my first attempt at trapunto and was machine appliquéd.  I don't think it's all that beautifully done, but it is durable.
This quilt made me so excited to sew again.

I finished this baby quilt, too.  I have a third finished quilt I will show later and a finished top.  I am still very busy in nursing school but I actually started making even better grades when I gave myself an outlet again.  


  1. Love the colours!! We all need an escape!! Keep up the great work, school will be done before you know!!!

  2. Too cute. I love that vintage puppy quilt. The border really made the quilt. Loved all the colors in the star quilt.
    We all need that outlet. Something to help us relax.
