The quilt will be lovely in other fabrics, as well. Batiks come to mind and will give the quilt a more modern personality. Make each dog from all one fabric or mix it up, as was done here, for a scrappy look.
The scotties can be used other ways, too. Center a block in a pillow, stitch several together for a table topper or runner, or add more blocks for a bed sized quilt.
The finished quilt is 49″ x 49″.
