What you get+-

You love dogs? 

Me too!

Big dogs, little dogs, shaggy dogs, fluffy dogs, sleek dogs - I love them all. Even shedding dogs!

Get ready to jump into the ultimate puppy-lovin' quilt pattern and spend some quality time creating adorable dog faces. (I have been known to murmur, "Who's a good dog? You are!" to my pups as I finish them.)

Here are the nitty gritty details about exactly what you get.

You Get. . .

  • A digital pattern delivered by email. (If you're not sure what a PDF pattern is, you'll find more info here.)
  • SVG files for use with electric cutting machines
  • 21 cute puppy appliqué patterns – full size so there’s no enlarging needed
  • Reversed and exploded appliqué patterns to print directly onto freezer paper or fusible adhesive. No tracing! Every piece is labeled so it’s easy to assemble after you’ve cut it all apart.
  • Detailed instructions and lots of step by step photos – you’ll never feel lost or wonder if you’re doing it right.
  • Detailed cutting instructions for crib, nap and twin sized quilts - plus links to more info for additional sizes.
  • Instructions for assembling the quilt – layering, basting, quilting and binding – with links to videos for all of them - including links to Quilt As You Go videos.
  • Links to videos teaching you all the skills you’ll need to complete the project. It’s a workshop disguised as a pattern!

Are you a new quilter?

I've got you covered. The fourteen puppies you see on the cover are designed especially for beginners.

For each pup you get. . .

a full-sized placement guide like this:

. . . full-sized pattern pieces - reversed and exploded so you can print directly onto fusible adhesive sheets, like this:

. . . and a video showing you how to assemble the pieces.

You also get a link to download an SVG file for use with electric cutting machines like Cricut.

Want to stretch your design skills a tiny bit?

Move on to the additional seven dogs.

      These dogs are all made with the templates from the main fourteen, so their placement guides look like this.

      You get the placement page, which tells you which pattern pieces to use, and you also get a video showing how the pieces go together.

      Want to stretch your design skills even more?

      Create your own! Remix all the pattern pieces to create dogs for which I didn't include a placement guide and videos. All the pieces in this pattern also work with the pieces in the Playful Puppies pattern. Between the two patterns you'll have the pieces you need to create all but the weirdest-looking dogs. :-)

      Size

      The blocks finish at 10" square. The pattern includes detailed instructions for the following sizes. . .

      • crib (50" square)
      • napping (50" x 60") - this is my favorite size for on the couch
      • twin (70" x 90")

      This post has links to info for additional quilt sizes.

        Difficulty

        I designed this quilt to teach appliqué – so it’s great for beginners, and a fun and relaxing project for more experienced stitchers. If you can use your sewing machine, you have the skills you need to make this cute and cuddly puppy quilt.

        I used appliqué with fusible adhesive and Quilt As You Go to make a super easy quilt - almost all done on the machine. The pattern also includes links to videos teaching needle turn appliqué and machine appliqué with freezer paper, in case you prefer those methods.

        What You Need+-

        Want easy peasy fabric shopping?

        For my background blocks I used this fabric - color-coordinated blocks with the quilting lines printed right on them. I used the Classic Rainbow color palette in light, medium, and dark.

        For the puppy appliques I used this Giant Animal Kingdom fabric bundle, plus some extra black and white blenders from the Salt & Pepper bundles.

        I designed these fabrics especially for applique!

        You'll need. . . 

        Crib Size (50" square)

        • 3 yards of a variety of background fabrics
        • assorted prints in puppy colors (get at least 7 fat quarters, but you’ll probably want more for variety)
        • 2 1/2 yards fabric for the quilt back (or 1 1/2 yards Cuddle Fleece)
        • 1/2 yard binding fabric

        Napping Size (50" x 60")

        • 3 1/3 yards of a variety of background fabrics
        • assorted prints in puppy colors (get at least 8 fat quarters, but you’ll probably want more for variety)
        • 4 yards fabric for the quilt back (or 2 yards Cuddle Fleece)
        • 1/2 yard binding fabric

        Twin Size (70" x 90")

        • 7 yards of a variety of background fabrics
        • assorted prints in puppy colors (get at least 16 fat quarters, but you’ll probably want more for variety)
        • 5 yards fabric for the quilt back (or 4 yards Cuddle Fleece)
        • 5/8 yard binding fabric

        Other Materials

        • batting (I love Warm & Natural 100% cotton batting)
        • fusible adhesive (if using my favorite appliqué with fusible adhesive technique) - I recommend Lite weight for quilts. Most of the dog templates require two sheets per dog.

        You might also want. . .

        • freezer paper (if you choose the machine appliqué with freezer paper technique) – either a roll from the grocery store, or this printable freezer paper

        Love it and it is just what I need to add to the previous Playful Puppies I bought years ago. I am currently working on two quilts combining these patterns. One for a grandchild and one for an animal dog rescue auction my neighbor participates in. Will send pictures

        These are the sweetest dogs. I have got both sets and plan on making some baby blankets. Love all of the patterns.
