Scotty Dog Quilt Block

Animals are popular themes in quilts. Most of us quilters are animal lovers of some kind, so it isn't surprising that the Scotty Dog Quilt Block has been a quilter favorite for many years. One of my dearest quilting buddies has a pet Scotty dog, and a few weeks back she was on the hunt for a Scotty Dog Quilt Block to use in a project. I was able to round up several varieties, and will be posting them here as I get them illustrated.

The first one is a pieced version designed in a 6x6 grid, so a 6" block can easily be drafted of this design.

Cat Quilt Block

This version of a Cat Quilt Block would make a fun addition to a Halloween Quilt.

It is made primarily of a rectangle surrounded by several Half Square Triangles, with simple appliques for the eyes and tongue. Or you could skip the applique for the eyes and use buttons.
