GRANDMOTHER'S SEWING ROOM: Puppy Quilt
This is a machine embroidered quilt that my mother and I made. Each of the machine embroidered dogs is different. I found the cute puppy material to put between the blocks.
Some more details of some of the embroidery work done. Also, if you look closely, you can see some of the quilting. It is not clear here, but the quilting pattern is dachshunds.
In this photo, you can see the back end of one of the dachshunds on the quilting pattern and the front of another dachshund. It is a continuous line pattern that I saw in a book and drew it out on a long piece of paper off a fax machine roll. I drew enough to put on the quilting machine for tracing onto the quilt.
More embroidery detail plus you can see more of the dogs printed on the fabric I used around my embroidered blocks.
I made these pillow cases to match the quilt. The bottom of the case is the backing fabric that I used on the quilt. I gave this quilt to my husband's brother Geary and his wife, Vernetta. They own a kennel called "Show-me puppies". I didn't get a photo of it, but I quilted that name across the top of the quilt before I started quilting the rows of the dachshunds.
