Dog Gone Cute – Quilt Along and Blog Hop news

Najwyzszy czas napisac co nieco na temat Dog Gone Cute Quilt Along i blog hop. Te slodkie psiaki sa wszedzie – pojawiaja sie na innych blogach i na Instagramie. Quilt Along i blog hop mozna znalezc na blogu Lorny – Sew Fresh Quilts, ktora zaprojektowala te popularne bloki. W kazdy wrzesniowy wtorek prezentuje ona kolejne bloki, opisujac dokladnie krojenie i zszywanie (wszystkie bloki sa w dwoch rozmiarach).

Time to write more about Dog Gone Cute Quilt Along and blog hop. Those cute dogs are everywhere – popping up on the other blogs and Instagram. The quilt along and blog hop are hosted by Lorna from Sew Fresh Quilts, who designed those popular blocks. Each Tuesday in September Lorna is presenting new blocks, describing in detail how to cut and piece them (all blocks in 2 size variants).

Ze wzgledu na podrozowanie i ostatnie przygotowania do mojego pierwszego maratonu nie dalam rady szyc w takt z quilt along. Za 5 dni mam nadzieje ukonczyc marathon w Berlinie i szycie znowu powroci do centrum. Zdecydowalam, ze nie uszyje calego quiltu, ale zestaw poduszek dla mojego synka zrobionych z niektorych blokow. Dokladnie kilka dni temu powiekszylismy jego lozko i jestem pewna, ze bedzie przeszczesliwy mogac wypelnic wolna przestrzen. Juz teraz spi przynajmniej z trzema pluszakami.

I don’t follow the quilt along completely as September is filled with travelling and final preparation for my first marathon. In 5 days I hope to accomplish Berlin Marathon and sewing will come back to focus again. I decided not to make the complete Dog Gone Cute quilt but use only some of the blocks to make a set of pillows for my son. His bed got bigger just few days ago and I’m pretty sure that he will be more than happy to fill the new space. He is already sleeping with at least 3 teddy bears.

Nie ujawniajac wszystkiego juz teraz – zamierzam uzyc bloki w obu rozmiarach I pierwszy z nich jest gotowy. Bloki sa raczej skomplikowane, zrobione z powyzej 30 malych kawalkow tkanin z wieloma przekatnymi szwami, ktore musza pasowac. Z pewnoscia jest to wyzwanie dla mnie, troszke poza moim komfortowym obszarem. Ale tak sie uczymy szyc, czyz nie? Blok na zdjeciu jest mniejszym blokiem.

Not to reveal everything already now – I’m going to use blocks in both sizes and the first one is already pieced. The blocks are rather complex, pieced out of over 30 really small pieces and with a number of diagonal seams that shall match. For sure challenging for me, a bit out of my comfort zone. I assume that’s the way to learn sewing… The block you can see on the photo is the smaller size.

Moje poduszki wezma udzial w blog hop w pazdzierniku. 40 blogow bierze udzial – czekam z niecierpliwoscia, zeby zobaczyc wszystkie kreacje. Tutaj rozklad jazdy.

My pillows are going to be a part of blog hop in October. There is 40 blogs participating – I’m looking so much forward to see what will be created. Here is the schedule.

I link up with WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced and Let’s Bee Social at sewfreshquilts

  1. Your puppy is so Dog Gone Cute! I did not count all the pieces in each of the blocks which is probably a good thing! I’m excited to see your finished pillows, but most importantly today I want to wish you well in your first marathon! Such an amazing event. Have FUN!!!

  2. Your block is very cute, and I bet your son will love having them on the bed with him. I completely understand the 3 teddy bears, I was the same, just love their comforting presence 🙂
