"My little dog-
a heartbeat at my feet."
~Edith Wharton 

The IZZ-A-BOO quilt for my son,
my first free pieced adventure ever!

Nothing could be truer than this simple, sweet quote when I think of my wee Izzy. Always close, always underfoot. She doesn't see well but she feels with her whole heart. Total. Love. Bug.

I may or may not have jumped ahead of the Quilt-A-Long with the Gravity project so I'll not disclose where these pieces fit but when I pressed them I of course was tripping over the Boo...I'm always tripping over that girl. The pieces were labeled B, F, F.

Yah...she's my "BFF"

Best. Friend. Forever.


  1. The quilt is really sweet. I love how well Izzy models the partial block.

  2. Awwwww. There's nothing like the unconditional love of a dog. And Izzy boo clearly adores her Mummy.

  3. What a great quilt. And you have a helper for pressing!! LOL

  4. Great post - funny photo of the block on her tummy.

  5. Wonderful, fabulous quilt!! I was touched by the for big dogs too ;-)

  6. I've caught Little Black Cat in/on my fabric more than once and he loves laying *exactly* where I'm working. Lol. My ol' girl Belle (Jack Russell Terrier) is blind and bumping into stuff, but she loves a good cuddle too. :) Gotta love the furballs!

  7. Nice to see you and Anja are both taking part in the Gravity quilt along together. Love your dog quilt! Izzy sure looks like a honey!
