I'm happy to introduce a new collection I've been working on, soon to be listed in my Craftsy shop! For all the dog lovers out there, I have been putting together some breed-specific patterns. These are fairly simple patterns with a huge amount of cuteness factor, and will make great mini quilts on their own or easily combine for a sweet larger quilt. Need a gift for a dog lover or a local shelter? These are the patterns for you.
The first two -- a schnauzer and a wire fox terrier -- are based off some of our family pets. I actually made these as Christmas gifts for their owners one year, but the patterns were lost in a catastrophic computer failure. Luckily I still had these pictures and was able to recreate my patterns upon a reader's request. Unfortunately this means that these new patterns are technically untested and cannot be released until that process is completed. If you'd like to help speed that up, there's a free pattern in it for you!
The first block is "Freddie," the miniature schnauzer. These guys are not only adorable, but they also have the best dispositions! I have a lovely lady who has asked about testing Freddie, but I am always happy to take on more testers to make sure my patterns are top-quality.
Our second block is "Willie," the wire fox terrier. What a bundle of energy these guys are! Sadly Willie has no testers at the moment, so let me know if you'd like to adopt his pattern.
One helpful thing I have added to my newer patterns for sale is two different size options. I have included pieces to sew either an 8" block or a 12" block so you can customize them more easily to your projects. As a service to my customers, I am also happy to reprint the pattern in any size you require. Simply contact me through the form on the main page and I will get that done for you.
I hope you love these pups and are looking forward to their public release. If there's a particular breed you are looking for, drop a comment below and I'll see what I can do!
