Dog Sled Leftovers – Some Finished Things!


LOL, how’s that for a vague title? It’s actually a table runner for my mother and two pillow covers for my mother-in-law, made from the leftovers of the Dog Sled quilt. Which I did manage to finish first, since it turned out it just needed one final border.

Not quilted yet – I don’t even have a backing yet. Clearly I’m not in a rush to get my own stuff quilted before the end of the school year. I’ll have my own longarm soon enough! {If I keep telling my husband that, eventually it will be true, right?}

So for my mom, I used four leftover strips, width of fabric, and just stitched them together for a long table runner. It’s about 12×42″.

For my mother-in-law, I used the last two pieces of “full” dog sleds and a modified courthouse step block to even out the size. Ended up with two 16″ pillow covers.

And when I went to take pictures, CC…wanted nothing to do with the dogs. Prima donna cat. {And yes, there are toys everywhere. The Dude built an epic train track that traverses two rooms. I just step over it.}

So that leaves me with just bits and pieces of this kit to absorb into the scrap bins. Look at that – leftovers used up before even the official finish! It’s like I’m becoming organized. {Hahahahaha!}

Congrats on getting all the leftovers into other projects. Both are very cool, but my favorite is that table runner. I remember the days of “epic” doll houses that took over the living room. Now all I find spread all over the house is homework!


Nice finishes! I always leave my stuff till the end too… I need to work on that.

Great way to use up those leftovers and have some lovely gifts. Thanks for linking up with TGIFF!


nice finishes, I love using up scraps, makes me feel so accomplished.


Hi Katie Mae,
I love these dog sled finishes. That just serves to remind me that I have a couple of these kits that I picked up on an Alaskan cruise several years ago . . . and they are definitely not finished. Geez. I guess I’d better dig them out. You have inspired me. ~smile~
