Flies and Dogs

As you all know, Grandma Coco has this on-going love affair with pre-printed panels. Everywhere we look we see more of them. We bought these beautiful dog portraits earlier this year from  Sew Sisters in Toronto. These dogs are called "Woof" and they're by Makower UK. The colours are warm and chocolatey and there's a tiny hint of gold. Gorgeous! but it's such a challenge to use them to their fullest potential.

Anna over at Ark Angel Creations is having a contest to celebrate the upcoming black fly season. Really, we're not sure "celebrating" is the correct word. However, she has a good sense of humour and so she's marking the season by inviting quilters to take the basic Shoo Fly block, and change it up. Winner takes all! 

We have exactly 25 doggie portraits left. (Of course, we can still buy more............)


  1. cute dogs. I like that they are a small size that you can use within a block.

  2. Love the dogs!!! They are great! What a way to celebrate "Black Flies"!
