The Wiener Dog quilt!


I am so excited that I finally get to share this quilt!
This is my favorite quilt I have made yet.
It is now presiding with my sister waiting for my nephew Preston to arrive.


I originally had started making my sister a different quilt.
But then I saw Dare to be square quilting by Boo Davis, and when I saw the wiener dog quilt I had to make it.


I used gingham for the back, so cute!


And I used Kona solids and some prints from my stash.
I was a little scared to attempt this initially, I was worried I wouldn't be able to match everything up right, but it was pretty simple and fun to make.
And so stinkin cute!

So, if I recall correctly, I think my aunt is on the general committee for Swiss Days. I'm not 100% if she will be this year because she and my uncle were just called to be mission presidents. Anyway, I just shot her off an email to see if she can pull some strings to get you into Swiss Days. I'll let you know when I hear from her.
