Hippy Teddy

I had to give a new idea a try.  Last year I bought a few tie-dyed panels.

I got some gray fabric at the show last week to use with it to make a quilt top.

Teddy is very anxious to see what it turns out like…it will be a hand quilted project as always, but likely with big stitch quilting.

I have a lot of sewing yet to do before I finish the top….but the colors are great for Teddy

    Looks like Teddy has claimed that one! He deserves the best, you know. I just love that dog of yours! Can you tell, I’m a dog lover first, a quilt lover second.

      Teddy is such a good quilting companion! Not sure he will get to use this one until I see how it turns out….I have lots more to add before I can show a full picture….but I do have an extra tie dye panel so he might get his own

    How spectacular! I love the effect you’re getting!
    Those are definitely Teddy’s colours!

      Thanks! Not at all my usual colors! (or style)…but I think its good to explore different things sometimes…and the bold colors sure make Teddy look good

    I really like the effect of the radiating colors broken by the gray—they’ll be recruiting you for the Modern Quilt Guild before you know it!

    Teddy must have known how good a white dog would look with that colourful background! The quilt top is looking great; love the way you’ve designed it =D

    Those colours sure set Teddy’s fabulousness off! I’m liking the design too.

    The tye-dyed quilt top looks like a winner and please tell Teddy that I love him. I might have to get a Teddy of my own. I have already gotten two ginger haired kittys from the SPCA. I’m thinking on it.

    I hadn’t realised that Teddy is a schnauzer. Was he a rescue? He seems very calm and placid.

    • timquilts says:

      the is a rescue dog…he was about a year and a half old when I got him, he had been very neglected and was so thin and shy…and afraid of being outside because he had never been outside before…..I didn’t know he was a schnauzer either but I had him for a while and everyone always asked what kind of dog is he….so I finally had a dna test done and found out he is a miniature schnauzer….so I got him groomed like one…and he seems very happy with his identity
