Gingham dog baby quilt

baby quilt in progress.... It looks like it is finished but we are just waiting for the little boy to be born so I can add his name, date of birth, etc in the big empty grey area.

When I learned that Holly was having a boy and doing her nursery in dogs, I  thought of the patchwork dog pillows that you see in antique stores.

I knew I couldn't tackle the box type pillow and all those set in seams, so I decided to make the quilt above.
This is a perfect project to make using any of your 2 1/2" jelly roll scraps.

Block measures 14" finished. Each print square is 2 1/2" x 2 1/2" cut. This block uses white as the background.

This block uses Grey as the background since Holly's nursery is grey.
(grey dot is from Aneela's group debuting at quilt market- in stores Feb.)
 If you are a grey junkie, you will want an entire bolt for yourself. I promise.
If you are interested in making some dog blocks, the above diagram shows the basic cutting and piecing directions for one block. All print blocks are cut 2 1/2" square.

Here is a diagram of 3 blocks across, 4 blocks down with 2" finished sashings.This diagram makes a quilt that is 50" x 66".
 hope you enjoyed this quick project!


  1. That is one gorgeous quilt. What a great design using 2 1/2" scraps. I am looking forward to Aneela's new collection - a walk in the woods. I like the little fox print.

  2. that is really cute. i have a scottie dog in real life so my kids would really like this.

  3. I have made a dog pillow from reproduction prints so now I may have to make the quilt to go with it. Thanks for the tut.

  4. gah!! i must make a doggie quilt!!! awesome idea

  5. Cute baby quilt! I mad a dog like that last year & it wasn't too tricky

  6. Beautiful! I can't wait to see the grey at Market! I definitely a grey junkie!

  7. That is so cute! And wow, does it bring back the memories. We had a stuffed dog like that, and we used to fight over who got to play with it. A well-loved little doggie, it was -- a quilt like that would be fun to make.

  8. That's just adorable -- I can't wait to make one!
