I fell in love with these adorable Happy Hollow Designs patterns at Houston Quilt Market…so of course I purchased the available shop samples (below) and ordered patterns.

Brighten up any room for the holidays — hang on your wall or dress up a table. It’s wonderful how these vintage/whimsical Santas bring out the child in all of us.

Oodles of Poodles Yo-Yo Poodle Quilt – my favorite quilt pattern/sample at Houston Quilt Market

Saturday, November 22nd, 2008

I was simply smitten with the Oodles of Poodles Yo-Yo Poodle Quilt in the Quilt Country Booth at Quilt Market.

Yes, I am a huge dog lover (though not necessarily the biggest fan of poodles).  Still…this quilt was absolutely adorable. I just wanted to grab it and bring it home with me to curl up in a big comfy recliner with a good book on a chilly day!  I imagine petting the poodles as I read…perfect!

The Oodles of Poodles quilt pattern by Elizabeth Creel for Quilt Country is available at SewThankful.com, but the pattern cover image does not do justice to the quilt.  So, I snapped a couple pictures (with permission) to share with you.
