12 Down only 2 to go Except......

Good News first:


One more completed puppy! Isn’t he adorable.... I wouldn’t fall for it though that face ALWAYS means they either did or are about to do something “fun”.

Bad News (in pairs):

I’m stuck. This little guy has been almost done for a couple of months, but I don’t know what to do about the box.... if I just outline it is it going to stand out for being so plain next to the clown?


(sorry about the wrinkles)

This one I could do a little bit more on but I’m not sure what to do about the wagon. That much fill makes me feel a little woozy but will it look finished just outline stitching it? Also what color should it be? It feels like wagons should always be red but there is no red on the rest of the quilt.


A third option ( which may just be laziness speaking) is, if I leave these out, twelve blocks makes a nice divisible number for a quilt layout. Fourteen does not. I still haven’t figured out how I’m going to put these together.

  1. Pretty Puppies!
    Perhaps for the box, you could stitch narrowly spaced vertical stripes of stem stitch (not sure if it's called that in America!) in colours that feature elsewhere in the quilt - or in the colours that are on the clown's costume. That would fill in the box without making it too prominent - and without taking you ages to do!
