Doggone Pawfect Quilt

Project #2127

Here's something to howl about! Use your favorite collection of dog-printed fabrics and Heat n Bond fusible adhesives to make the pawfect quilt. Just remember to keep the paper on the shape until after the die-cut has been made.

Piecing the Quilt:

  1. Place an 8" Circle on top of a 10" Square. Place a Dog Head in the center of the Circle, layering as desired.
  2. When satisfied with the placement, heat fuse in place with an iron and stitch around shapes as desired.
  3. Repeat steps 1 and 2 to make two more Dog blocks.
  4. Place 4 Dog Paws on one 5" x 10" Rectangle, heat fuse in place with an iron and stitch around shapes as desired. Repeat to make one more Dog Paw block.
  5. Using the quilt image as a guide, lay out the 5" Squares, 10" Squares and 5" x 10" Rectangles, alternating colors so that no two of the same color are next to each other.
  6. Sew units together in large square blocks. Start with sewing a 5" x 10" Rectangle to a 10" Square, then a 5" Square to a 5" x 10" Rectangle. Once these are assembled, sew large block units together two across by three down.
  7. Sew the 1 1/2" black border Strips to the sides of the quilt center first, then sew the top and bottom border Strips. Sew the 1 1/2" white with light brown bones border Strips to the quilt in the same manner.
  8. Sew the 3 1/2" black paw print border Strips to the sides of the quilt first, then sew the top and bottom border Strips.


  1. Layer the backing, batting and quilt top. Quilt by hand or machine, as desired.
  2. Sew binding strips together to form one long strip. Fold wrong sides together, lengthwise, and press.
  3. With a 1/4" seam, sew the raw edges of the binding to the edges of the right side of the quilt. Turn the folded edge of the binding to the back side of the quilt and stitch in place by hand, mitering the corners.
