Sweet Puppy Block

There was a "blog hop" that I watched for the entire run.  I loved the Dog Gone Cute block but didn't know if I wanted to try it. When a friend asked me to make a baby quilt in neutrals, that was all the push I needed. I gathered fabrics in neutrals (just some scraps.) and I cut and sewed it.
How stinkin' cute is this!
I confess that the eyes are not according to the pattern, The eye on the left of the block was designed to be closer to the center. I made a mis .....errr I changed it, using artistic license. This iis the large block that finishes at 18 by 12 inches. There are cutting instructions also for a 9" by 6" small block.

Since the quilt is for a baby girl we decided not to use it. Instead, I need to find a bunny or a kitten-preferably a bunny.
I must say thanks to "Sew Fresh Quilts" for providing this pattern free on her blog.  There are actually eight different block options so you can make a whole litter of these.
Comments are welcomed. I will reply when possible unless otherwise stated. Of course if you are a "No Reply Blogger" - I can not reply.

I have seen these blocks on a few different blogs I follow. All are so cute! I may need to go bookmark this pattern.

I'm using that pattern to make a pillow for a local dog rescue to auction off. I am tweaking it to look like a certain dog they found in horrible condition and restored to health. I'll probably make more of these because they are really cute!

Just to be encouraging here, I love the idea of puppies for baby girl's quilt! I love that you chose a light floral to give fur texture! Maby yours would make a great little travel pillow! I hope you make and share more of these Dog Gone Cute little guys or girls!!!
