Needed to make a small quilt . . .strings to the rescue!
It didn't take very long to piece
these nine 10.5" string blocks.
A 36" square of fusible batting and a yard of backing
allowed me to prepare the quilt sandwich.
Following the seams with not-quite-in-the-ditch
walking foot stitching was just right.
Here is the finished and bound front . . .
. . . with a peek at the scrappy fabrics.
This photo of the back actually shows the quilting more clearly.

So why did I need to whip up this happy little quilt?
Because . . .
Our older son and his wife have adopted Darcy!
(she's a smart, sweet 7-month-old 8-pound rescue puppy)
When their beloved Tippy (age 18)
traveled across The Bridge last summer,
she took her quilt with her.
That meant Darcy needed a quilt to call her own!
(Yes, she has Yorkie fur and very expressive Papillon ears)
Darcy makes friends everywhere she goes.
She met Scooter on a walk in her neighborhood.
(he's the same age but weighs 55 pounds to her 8 pounds)
The two puppies spent 25 minutes romping and playing together.
I've seen the video - it was awesome!
The quilt has now been tested and approved.

Welcome to the family, Darcy!
