Pooches on parade - giveaway

For several years I have had a layer cake (Martinique) sitting in my stash, in all honesty I forgot that it was there until I recently had a tidy up.  I had no project in mind when I purchased it, I just liked the colours and prints. 

A few months back I found a pattern  "Oodles of poodles" that uses a layer cake with only a little extra fabric for sashings and binding that was perfect for this particular layer cake.

As if I dont have enough on the go, I set about this week making a start on this quilt and tonight I have finished the quilt top.

Here is one of my pooches " Robbie" testing out the new quilt top.  I dont know why but he always sits on them when I lay them out for photographs.

I think he is in training to be a quilt critique like many other pooches I spy on friends blogs. 
Its quite apt really, not that Robbie is a poodle, he is a Bichon freise, but is often mistaken for a poodle.

I have used this pattern but am offering it as a give away.  Simply write a post on your blog telling us about your pooch and link it to a comment on this post. 

This give away is for the pattern only - sorry you will have to supply your own layer cake, but I will pop a few extra goodies in with the parcel.  Closing time is mid day on December 11th and the winner will be announced on Sunday Dec 11th in the afternoon .

And just so he doesnt feel left out, here is my other pooch Billy (with my puss Josie keeping an eye on things).


  1. Oh so the poodle top! I think your "poodles" are cute too Sue! It will make such a FUN quilt for a little one! :)

  2. Love your quilt and your gorgeous dogs. I lost my little doggie 'Scruffy' to cancer early this year and haven't been able to find any other dog to replace him.

  3. Hi! Greetings from Finland! Your quilts are so fantastic! It's so nice to find other quilters all around the world!
    Yours, Ulla

  4. HELLO
