Work in Progress
I've been working on a mini quilt, I'm calling Puppy Dog Lost. I came up with the name because this quilt it taking on a life of its own and my little dog is getting lost in the patterns. I started with one idea of placing an abstract applique Scottie dog in the center of the quilt with patchwork around. Well, my Scottie, didn't look like a Scottie (so I changed him to a terrier) and once the patchwork started the center was not the place for the dog to be. Then when I put everything together the dog seemed as busy as the patchwork and to me he seemed to get lost in the quilt. So, I went with it. I'm hand quilting each patchwork unit and I'm thinking of adding some embroidery. In this mix of patchwork I found a place from some of the weaving I did a few days ago. I'll see where this little quilt goes from here and will post the finished product. Wishing everyone a Happy St. Pat's Day.
