Hi dear friends! I hope you like lots of photos because I do! I enjoy posts with many photos and stories about process etc. So here we go! “Maggie and Puppy” baby quilt top and some details how I did it.
Here the quilt top is almost finished. Puppy’s leash and the ribbon for the balloon will be sewn later. Perhaps it needs also small border.
First it was Maggie and in the very beginning her hair! One scrap gave me the idea for her hair. That scrap was left over piece from drunkard’s path outside piece. Here are now enough photos so I show you that scarp on an other time.
This is totally free piecing. I just cut pieces and started to think how to sew them together and how to add the background.
Next time I know to plan better so the seams will go more … something.
I was so happy to sew the curve for the skirt that totally forgot to think about the stockings!
Easy way to make them was to sew the light green scrap on the top of the darker. Then I sew the pink stockings on both sides and trimmed the sides.
Planning for some extras was fun even later I left the hand bag out because it looked too much.
And here is Maggie.
The other main thing I wanted to make for this quilt was a dog. I didn’t have any plan or drawing, just cut some pieces and then trimmed them to get the shape that looked like a puppy. Notice the collar is with the same ‘leather’ like Maggie’s turquoise booties!
And here is Puppy.
Few houses for the village.
Flower gardens and green for the park. And white! That’s important for me to get lightful and fresh look. Before the white there is always something that bothers me and when I add white it’s fine.
I tried many balloons but at the end it looked best with one pink balloon. I sew the pink balloon like log cabin block and cut it circle/oval. It’s needle turn appliqued on the quilt top. I shall still cut away the fabric from behind the balloon.
Weather has finally changed and there is spring in the air or in fact it is spring! Sunny and warm weather is the best when you take many puppies for many walks every day. That’s why Maggie and her Puppy needs to wait for a while to be continued.
Thank you for stopping by! Thanks again also for your lovely comments!
I’m joining the linky parties:
Have a beautiful day, happy sewings and puppy walks!
