Daisy Damage

I love my puppy, but she's a chewer. She has her own quilt, which sits on the floor in the living room.  She plays on it, sleeps on it and NEVER chews HER quilt.  Mine, on the other hand, is fair game.  So, over the holidays she did this...


I decided to fix it today.  First I found similar fabrics and sewed them together.  Then I appliqued the blue side into the nine patch.


Then I did the same with the white...


I tucked a small piece of batting into the hole, then appliqued an old Debbie Mumm Santa over the hole in the back.


I did a little bit of stippling to hold everything together...and I thought it turned out pretty good!  Now I'll pack it away for next Christmas.


And now it's a quilt with a story!  (And I do still love Daisy!)
