This is the third block from Eleanor Burns’ new Quilt-in-a-Day book, Victory Quilts – 1940s Sampler Quilts.   See previously posted blocks in my Quilt Blocks category.

This block is called “Fala” in honor of President Roosevelt’s scottie which made all scottie dogs popular in the 1940s.  The block is rated  “easy skill level” and uses non-woven fusible interfacing to make the dog applique which is stitched onto the backing with a blanket stitch.  The block was very simple to construct and I think it’s pretty cute.
