The moment I saw Lorna of Sew Fresh Quilts Dog Gone Cute
quilt I thought immediately of my grand-dog Tucker. But you can be the judge. This is the very handsome Mr. Tucker:
He is an almost one year old hybrid sweet dog rescued by my son and daughter-in-law via the New Hampshire Humane Society.
And using Lorna's fun pattern, here is the Tucker Pillow:
The backing fabric seemed like a good choice.
Striving to emulate our blog hop leader, I quilted this in a wavy line using the walking foot.
I think Tucker likes it! (I love he is posing on the little bed I made him!)
Tucker really can't hide very well under this pillow!
And did you know that October is Adopt a Shelter Dog Month? There are thousands of dogs out there that are just waiting to be loved. If you are anywhere near me in New Hampshire, stop by the New Hampshire Humane Society
in Laconia, NH for a sample of dogs looking to find their forever homes.
The Dog Gone Cute Blog Hop
continues! Lorna has sweetly shared the blocks to make all the different puppies for a quilt. Tucker's Pillow uses just one of the blocks Lorna has designed. These bloggers are sharing their take on Lorna's design today:

Lorna is one extraordinarily talented and generous maker. Her patterns are fun, clever and always so well written. Thank you Lorna for giving us these pups! This will not be my last Dog Gone Cute block!
