I have been wanting to put together a twin-sized quilt for Henry for a while (like since he started sleeping in a twin bed over a year and a half ago). With the weather warming up here in the South, he needed something lighter than his down comforter, so I finally got around to it this last week. The idea for a quilt with uniform Dachshunds came to me even before we actually got a Dachshund. But, now it's even more appropriate!
I used a Googled clip art image for my template.
The center "H" square I actually made a long time ago, when I had a robot quilt in mind for Henry. The "H" was going to be the robot's body. But, the picture in my head proved more advanced than my actual abilities, so that idea is now safely tucked away for a day when I'm a better quilter.
While this little quilt didn't end up being a great example of quality or craftsmanship (Am I the only one who just doesn't have the patience to redo binding properly or add an extra 15" of length that disappeared somewhere along the way?), I am proud that I only used fabric from my stash-- which seems to reproduce while I'm not looking.
I love how soft and snugly it turned out! After I washed it and the batting fluffed up, I couldn't wait to wrap my little guy up in it!
