31  Nickel Dog Quilt in Quilting: Completed Projects by audrey1999 on: May 13, 2008 05:39:40 PM
I have been working on this for what seems like forever! (March) My little brother is having a babyhad a baby this past Thursday.  They love dogs and wanted to do their nursery in dogs.  I found this pattern Nickel Dogs (http://www.meandmysisterdesigns.com/patterns.asp) and thought it was the perfect match. I used the Strawberry Lemonade and Brights fabric line from Moda.  I absolutely love the Strawberry Lemonade fabric.  I want a picnic quilt made of this!
It is a quilt of may firsts for me:  first quilting not just tying!; first time using binding; first time using a pattern.  I learned to use thread that matches the binding-I tried invisible thread but it kept breaking. Sad  There are several mistakes, but it is done!  I hope they like it-and if I find out that they are letting their 4 huge dogs sleep on it, I will cry.  I just hope they love it.

Here are the numerous pictures:



Since the quilt is all about dogs, here is my obligatory dog picture.  It is in the forties here today-hence the t-shirt.  Smiley


I quilted around all the dogs in the ditch and then around all the borders.  Here is a question for all of you accomplished quilters:  The green border is about five inches wide.  Do I need to quilt it?  I don't have either a darning foot or walking foot so I was trying not to but if I need to I will.  My machine is old and I am not sure if the feet they have in the store will fit. Sad  (I used weed trimmer wire linked between two plant holders and binder clips to hang this quilt in my backyard! )

I am worried about that package.  I mailed it on April 8 and according to the dc# 0307 1790 0000 6891 3017, it was delivered on April 10th at 12:25 pm.  If it is somehow lost/stolen? I would be happy to make another one during this round.  Hmm...  What should I do?  Lukenlarry, did you receive it?  It looked like this:

FlashleyAshley, that is going to be awesome!  Here is the progress I have made:

I am going to post a picture of the blocks I have received so far too.  Thanks for the idea Grieney.  I would also appreciate it if mine were not repeats, since they will be in the same quilt. Smiley

Here are all of my blocks together!  I added black behind some of it to see how it will look when I add the sashing.


I made a mosaic using flicrtoys of all the blocks I made for this swap, but I can't figure out how to upload it from my flickr set.  Can anyone help me with this?

I almost have all of my blocks!  Today was a huge mail day for me.  I received five blocks from lukenlarry, christiantrekki, tsuki_tsubasa, majesticdananay, and kiden2.
I had to lay everything out so I could see what it might look like!  This is not my final design, I am still playing with everything and awaiting my final block  so consider it a teaser.

I haven't ironed anything so it will look a little neater next time!  I want to wait, iron, and start sashing!  I am going to put 2 inch? black borders with a 4 patch in the corners-I think.  Then add my new swap blocks from the new swap!  I apologize because you will see this again with my final block!

Here is my final block for lourapalmr!  I hope you like it!  I came up with the design myself for this one.  It will be in the mail tomorrow.


WooHoo!  I will post a mosaic of all the blocks completed by me a little later on. Grin
