Mixed Mutts

This super cute quilt was made by Cindy for her granddaughter's first birthday.  The pattern is called Mixed Mutts by Lunch Box Quilts.  Cindy did the embroidery version although there is a classic applique version available as well.

Cindy requested custom quilting.  I quilted a little heavier than I normally would on a quilt for a young child, but I just couldn't help myself!  We used Quilter's Dream Puff Batting so the quilt is still nice and light.

I used three types of thread on the front of this quilt.  For the pebbles, and ditching around the embroidery  I used an Invisifil 100 wt so that there wasn't a lot of thread build up.  For the outside border I used my trusty So Fine thread, and for the loops on the frames around the dogs, I used a variegated Fantastico thread in bright rainbow colors although it is very hard to see in the photos.

I love all the texture on this quilt!
