Pond Critters and other Summery Stuff from Made By Marney

My garden is calling me… and I’m enjoying sunny days in my yard. Here’s my “SucculentTurtle”. I left him out in the snow all winter and about half of the hen and chicks survived the Wisconsin cold.

When a customer asked me to design some “pond creatures”, a turtle was a must.

POND COLLECTION

Paper piecing a fantastic turtle is all about the fabric you can find for the turtle’s shell. I just happened to have this scrap left from a previous project, and it is perfect for a turtle done completely in cool colors. I have ...

Dogs, Dogs, Dogs…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.

Getting Ready for My Valentine… from Made By Marney

It’s time to dig out my Valentine pillows. I’m looking forward to some chocolate and flowers! Right?

This is a Valentine doggie block I designed in 2019.

BE MINE PUPPY

This cutie I designed this year…

EYE LOVE U PUPPY

Wouldn’t these blocks make cute pillows or potholders? I’m going to try to sew them up before Valentine’s Day.

Both patterns can be found in my ETSY SHOP. I’d love to see what you can create using these sweet pups.

Some super sweet customers have been sharing photos of adorable projects they have created using my paper piece patterns. I LOVE to see their fun creations.

Bella is a first time paper piecer. She entered her CORGI quilt in her 4H competition and won first place. I love how she repeated the dog blocks in an Andy Warhol Pop Art inspired composition.

Dog Quilt Blocks from Made By Marney

Three new doggie quilt blocks designed by customer request.

Lisa sent this photo of Atilla Bear the Chow Chow, hoping for a paper pieced pattern.

Atilla Bear

This is the finished CHOW CHOW PAPER PIECED PATTERN. I was a bit timid when approaching this design, as Chow Chows have lots of fur, and it is always a challenge to represent fur in paper piecing, but still maintaining a fairly simple pattern.

Another customer requested a boxer pattern. Here’s a photo of her pup. Isn’t he a cutie?

I decided to tackle this breed from both angles. Here’s ...
