NEXT SECTION OF "A LITTLE PORCH TIME"

It is time to show the section of "A Little Porch Time" that Lori of Humble Quilts assigned us to stitch in September.  I started working on it yesterday evening and finished it this evening.
The upper left block was to be a pair of small hands to represent children.  Since there was already a hand in this section, I decided to substitute a dog instead.  I found a Country Threads pattern with a dog.  Too large for this block so I drew a nine inch square and drew a similar shaped dog that would fit within the square.  On the other side of the quilt will be a long cat which is as the quilt is designed.  There are two big applique sections coming up.  I won't be able to wait until the last minute to do those.

Back to my stitching.

Love the doggy. I may use him as inspiration to draw for one of the quilts in my UFO pile - the pattern has a kitty but, of course, I want a pooch *s*
