Dogs, Dogs, Dogsā€¦For a Good Cause. from Made By Marney

This adorable handmade paper pieced DOG QUILT is being offered in an online auction, benefits to go to the Street Dog Foundation.

The quilt was lovingly paper pieced by Janet, using my dog patterns, of course! She donated all of the materials and her time for the Street Dog Foundation’s benefit. It would be great if you would show your support by placing a bid on this lovely quilt in the next 2 weeks, after which bidding will end.

HOLIDAY GOLDEN RETRIEVER

And speaking of dog patterns, here are my 4 newest dogs just in time for the holidays ...

Holiday Gnomes from Made By Marney

Since Gnomes are all the rage this holiday, my customers have been requesting more gnome designs…and I love a challenge!

LUMBERJACK GNOME

I LOVE this super cute LUMBERJACK GNOME. I can’t wait to make my paper pieced block into a cozy winter pillow. What will you do with yours?

GNOME WITH LANTERN

The only item hotter than gnomes right now are lanterns. This clever little gnome is done in Christmas colors, but doesn’t need to be. The GNOME WITH LANTERN would be adorable all year round.

Which Witch is Which? from Made By Marney

I’ve just designed two new witch blocks just in time for Halloween…

WANDA THE WITCH

This is such an easy pattern…using a striped fabric for Wanda The Witch’s hair makes it look like it has lots of texture. Wanda has such a beautiful wonky nose! Very witchy indeed!

GOOFY WITCH

My Goofy Witch has 2 sparkling teeth and a giant wart on her nose. Wouldn’t it be fun to make potholders from these two lovely witches? Which witch is which????

Here are a few more adorable Halloween projects made from my paper pieced witch and cat ...
