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.
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.
