Leanne Anderson shares her adorable dog breed quilts. Dog owning quilters love seeing ‘their breed’ created in fabric. It was this idea that was the catalyst for Leanne’s current count of fifty dog breed designs. The pre-fused laser cut applique kits make creating a dog gone cute quilty item a breeze. Leanne shares tips for preparing, stabilizing, appliquéing, and layering the designs. She also has ideas for adding a dog design to a variety of items (coasters, pot holders, dog food containers, etc.). Take a look at finished items with her dog designs produced by her family-run company.
