Scottie

Here is my Scottie Dog. I started to make him with some cute dog fabric and some little paw prints. But when I started making the HSTs, I realized there was not enough contrast between my puppy fabric and the background. (as you can see in the squares beside my block) I decided to cut out some dark fabric and use it for the Scottie. The nose is done in the dark fabric, but using the back of it because it was darker. It doesn't show up in the photo, but I am not taking it out. I have lots of puppy fabric left over, so I think I will make another block using that and a light background. But not today.

Did anyone use the templates? I looked at them, but did not use them. I think they are not correct.

I think this block looks very nice in black and white. With your little paw prints as the background, it's especially nice. Kathie L in Allentown

I can't wait to try this block. Didn't get around to the camel last week; may try that one yet.
This looks like a fun block

What cute fabric! Good that you caught that you needed to do a darker dog before you had more sewn!

I was going to use the templates will save myself the trouble since you noticed they were not right. They seemed small to me when I printed them - but since the one inch mark was correct I was happy.
