He and I welcome you to our day to share in the Dog Gone Cute Blog hop hosted by Lorna from Sew Fresh Quilts...
As you can see...none of these pups resemble Sam but they sure make for a pretty happy quilt!
A closer look at the organic straight line quilting.
I used fabrics from my stash for this quilt with Moda Vanilla Grunge for the background. It was a lot of fun picking out "unusual colors/patterns" for the pups!
Big thanks to Lorna for fun inspiration and the pattern. You can make your own by visiting Sew Fresh Quilts for the pattern.
For my version, I used her larger size dog patterns #1, #2 and #5 and bordered them with 3 1/2" strips of background fabric resulting in a generous twin size of 88" x 66".
Please be sure to visit all my fellow participants showing their projects today!

Very cute. The quilting is perfect and makes it look so cozy!
Oh that turned out wonderful. Hi Sam, aren't you a cutie. Love your choice of colors and what happy puppies, on both the quilt and Sam.
Such lovely colourful dogs!
This quilt came out so good. The colors for these puppies are a lot of fun. Sam looks like a real sweetheart.
Thanks for sharing your quilt and the basic information on it.
I just love your colors on this super cute puppy quilt! Oh... the blues, so bright and eye catching, love it! Sam is super cute too, looks like a happy guy! Thanks for sharing. Hugs, Heide
Sam looks like he is smiling! I think he likes your puppy quilt. I know I do. The pups are adorable and I love your quilting on it.
I love all of these beautiful colorful puppies. The straight line quilting just allows them so shine. Sam is a cutie, for sure! And he is made up of two of the best dogs ever, so by default he would have to be an angel.
This looks great Kris!! Such a great idea to add some extra spacing to make it twin size. Thanks for sharing!
Kris your finished quilt looks amazing. Love seeing all the different colours on the pups.
Sam is a doll and your quilt is precious! You did a great job....love the quilting lines.
Love your quilt and all the happy dog faces. I guess you had the perfect model for them :)! Love how you quilted your quilt!
I loved opening your bog and seeing Sam's face. Too cute! Love your quilt, of course, and that quilting looks beautiful on your sweet quilt. Thanks for sharing!
Hi Kris and Sam! Sam, you are so beautiful! This quilt with puppies in many colours is super cute! Great fabric choises! x Teje & Nero
Your quilt is beautiful and so cheerful with those bright fabrics! Well done.
Such colourful puppies. It's a great finish.
I love that you have used bright and cheerful fabrics for the puppies. Thanks for sharing
I love your bright and happy quilt. I think that the top center dog resembles Sam quite a bit! Great finish!
Yep, your pups are dogone cute.
Sam is certainly a very handsome fellow. He looks like he's smiling! Maybe he's smiling at your quilt? I can see why. It turned out absolutely gorgeous! Love those bright pups against the white background, Kris. And the straight line quilting is beautiful!
Super cute and fun quilt!! I love your different fabrics and personalities for your puppies!
It's a beautiful project!
Love your colourful and happy quilt! The photo of Sam makes me smile :)
That is darling. I love all of the colors.
They are just precious!
Adorable! blessings, marlene
It's so bright and happy! I love it! :)
Fun quilt, Kris!! I bet you named them all.
I love it--fun to see how great the straight line quilting looks too.
What a fun colorful quilt! Perfect for a boy or girl's room.
I am so glad to see you use many brighter colors as I was thinking someday I need to make one or two of these for donation quilts, but I like using bright colors for them. I love how yours came out.
Love how bright and cheerful your fabric choices are! What a cute quilt (and cute "puppy" too)!
Very colorful quilt! Great quilting.
So happy to see your finished quilt - it's Dog Gone Beautiful!
Sam looks like a very happy camera "ham". Your Puppy quilt is fabulous! Thank you sew very much for hopping. Creative Puppy Bliss.
Ohh those are super cute.
First of all. I love that photo of your dog. You made really great fabric choices for your pups which make your quilt very happy indeed.
I like your bright and happy quilt. It is so cute!
Your quilt is adorable!!
Sam is adorable. I've a Black Lab too, called Stan. I love your version of the quilt, bright and cheerful
OH I love your variety of colors and patterns!! A happy, cuddly finish for sure!! ENJOY IT!
This is pretty! I love all the different colors you used here.
Love what you did with the pattern. Great idea using all of those wonderful bright colors.
Love all the colours you used for your pups... very cheerful and playful!
I love the colors you used, and isn't the grunge line so useful? I have it for a table topper that is in the works and it just makes the best background. I'm so glad to have time to comment on the blogs finally, it's only been a few weeks... :) Have a great weekend!
Such a great collection of colorful pups!
It's fun to come back to this post about your cute dog quilt and see that sweet real puppy face. He looks so lovable!
The bright colors really give your pups personality!
What a great idea to make each pup a different color...sorta color story-ish! Brilliant work!
I love yopur puppies with many different colours! I vote your quilt. Best regards to adorable Sam <3
I love Sam! He gave me the biggest, brightest smile 😍 this morning when I clicked over to see your quilt! I really enjoy your quilt, also, of course! That will be a fun quilt to have in your house for generations.
