I finished quilting and binding the "Super Zig" quilt and as it was nice and sunny on the weekend, managed to get it washed and dried too. I just did echo stitching in the white sashing on either side of the zig zags.
I had some scraps left over so I thought I'd make a "Scottie Dog" which is one of the free patterns on the DS website, so after work on Sunday I cut out the 2 1/4 squares of fabric and pieced them together:
And yesterday afternoon I finished sewing him together - the original pattern has a patchwork back as well but I just used a large piece of lime green felt:
I realised this morning that I forgot so sew a button on for his eye :)
He looks so cute sitting on my "new" red couch, and has even made himself a little friend already!
My Grandmother (who turned 90 earlier this year) loves Scottie Dogs so I will definitely have to make one for her too.
Linking up to a few sites listed in the left sidebar where there are lots of crafty and inspiring projects.
