Beach Boys

I had an ah-ha moment today. I found this adorable dog fabric in the remnant bin at Joann's; I tucked it away until I had an idea how to use it. I knew I wanted to fussy cut the dogs to emphasize the personalities of these beach boys. The guy in the lawn chair is drinking "pupsi cola'!

Attic Windows is the perfect pattern to showcase a great fabric! Here are the first six blocks. (I have six more to go.) These took me an hour to whip up; they measure at 8" square.

These guys just make me laugh! The small print gives basic dog commands: sit, stay, fetch, etc.

The Christmas Sampler was set aside; I must first applique those two last blocks before I will allow myself to do another block. I guess I am not really excited about applique. It is more fun to piece the blocks!

I love the dogs, as you already know. It looks really cool with the "windows"

Oh my, that is the cutest fabric and I love dogs. I'm going to the fabric store today, maybe I'll find something cute. Mainly tho, I just want to find the right fabric to finish a baby quilt that I've been struggling with so I can move on!!
Have a great weekend.
