Pet Rescue Dog Blocks Update



It's just me,
popping in for a very few minutes,
to share a finish
for the Pet Rescue Dog Blocks project.

It's still my birthday!
And all because of YOU!



A peek at the backing....




...and the binding.



*
Thanks to a few suggestions from readers,
today I tried a new-to-me photo editor
to replace PicMonkey.
I went to BeFunky
and found it pretty easy to use,
except for using the text.

Next post,
I'll try another new one.
It has to be pretty simple, as I'm not one to spend a lot of time 
clicking all around 
trying to make sense out of something.

I wanted to remind you about


My day is February 8th!
Hope I'm ready!

Enjoy your day!
Thanks for popping in!
XO,
karen

Such a darling quilt and I love the polka dot binding and adorable backing too. Thanks for the BeFunky tip. I'll have to give it a look/see.

They may have been bad puppies, they may have eaten the homework, chewed your favorite magazine or peed in your favorite boots, but you were determined to make them behave. And here they are - all so well-trained, rounded up, in one place looking so cute and completely innocent. I can drool over that backing or should I say WOOF!!!

Sondra said...

IT's SO SWEET!! The backing is perfect and binding is just right too.

Just gorgeous Karen.. I recognise a few of the pups....
I'm not at all tech savvy and have lots of trouble posing on my iPad or laptop sew I always use the trusty old computer in the corner...

I love your dog quilt and treasure the one I made. The backing fabric is adorable and perfect! I use PicMonkey and like it, but I may have to expand my creativity and check out some new ones. I don't like anything that takes too much thinking. :O)

Needled Mom said...

That looks so cute, I love your backing choice.

JanineMarie said...

It looks like you are having a great time with all those puppies! What a fun birthday celebration you are having. The personality of the backing just makes me laugh. And those polka dots!

Love how the puppy quilt turned out! I love how you offset the rows. And your quilting is perfect! Awesome job and happy birthday again
Thanks for the link to BeFunky. that is new to me and I need a new editor too. I do miss PicMonkey. Looking forward to what you offer up on the blog hop. Bet it is fabulous!!

Happy birthday. What a wonderful idea to share it with Puppy Rescue. Congratulations on a beautiful finish.

This is awesome. It looks like each dog is "framed" Very nice. I just discovered Ribbet for photo editing. Much better than BeFunky.

Fiona said...

Super cute Doggie Quilt with the colorful blocks and sweet backing fabric. I never want to spend time learning software and have it change too often for me to keep up. JOYful Super Moon January...<3
