Quilting Your New Puppy a Personal Blanket: How to Keep Him Warm and Comfy

There’s nothing quite like the feeling of a new puppy cuddling up against you for warmth. Especially when that puppy is coming in from the cold! If you’ve just welcomed a new furry friend into your home, why not make him a special quilted blanket to keep him warm and cozy? In this article, we’ll show you how to make a quilted blanket for your new pup – it’s easy, fun, and will keep your little one happy and comfortable all winter long!

To make a quilted blanket for your puppy, you’ll need:

  • A piece of cotton fabric in a solid color or fun pattern (we recommend something washable, in case of accidents!)
  • A piece of batting or quilt wadding
  • A sewing machine and thread
  • Scissors
  • A ruler or measuring tape

First, cut your fabric and batting into equal squares. We recommend making the squares around 18″ x 18″, but you can make them larger or smaller depending on the size of your puppy. Once you have your squares cut out, it’s time to start quilting!

To quilt the blanket, you’ll need to sew the fabric and batting together. We recommend using a simple straight stitch for this project. Start by sewing around the edge of each square, about ½” from the edge. Once you’ve sewn around all of the edges, it’s time to start quilting!

Quilting is simply sewing lines across your fabric to hold the layers together. You can quilt in any pattern you like – straight lines, diagonal lines, zig-zags, or even circles! Just make sure that your stitches are evenly spaced and about ½” apart.

Once you’ve finished quilting, it’s time to put the blanket together. Lay out your squares in a row, making sure that the pattern side of the fabric is facing up. Sew the squares together using a ½” seam allowance. Once you’ve sewn all of the squares together, you’re finished!

Now it’s time to snuggle up with your new puppy and his cozy quilted blanket. We hope you enjoy this project – and your new furry friend!
