The First "Girly" Bodacious Patchwork Doggy Quilt
So far, all of the Bodacious Patchwork Doggy Quilts have been made with colors suitable for both male and female pups. We've done that on purpose. We didn't want to exclude any pups. However, a few people from our Bodacious Community and beyond have asked for "girly" quilts. At that point, we knew that our selection of colors, both prints and solids, needed to expand. A lot.
That was definitely the inspiration behind this beauty. I pulled out what little "girly" colors we had on hand, made sure there was enough to cut out the amount of squares needed, and I sketched out a design. By the end of the day, it was done! Our first "girly" quilt.
Two hours later, we posted it on our page and it sold.
Making this quilt was a definite eye opener for us. We seriously need to make a fabric run very soon. And, we need to step out of our comfort zone when selecting fabric. Not everyone likes the colors and prints that fall into our preference bucket.
We're learnin' as we go...
