Pets on Quilts!!!

Pets on Quilts

Welcome to Pets on Quilts, my favorite show in all of blogworld. This year Lily Pad Quilting is carrying on the tradition and I thank her so much for stepping up and taking it on. 


This is my third year participating and I learned with the first one that I need to stalk the "terrible twins" early if I want any decent pictures.




What's this, there's a quilt on our bed. Where did this come from?




Maya likes it.




She even likes it enough that I was able to sneak in and take a closer picture.




Brady Bug really likes it, but then he likes all of my quilts.






This was the last of those pictures I was able to get because something is going by outside and they both had to run out to the yard and protect the house. It was probably a cat. 


I do want to tell you about that quilt, it is the largest I've made, just twin size, but huge for me. I used Kumari Gardens fabric by Dena Designs to make Carrie Nelson's Plan C quilt from her book Schnibbles times two. The fabric and pattern were made for each other, it turned out really beautiful.


When I take pictures of my quilts these two are always along and although they say they are helping, I call it photo bombing.




See the bottom of the quilt?








Last year I told you their stories, both rescues, both sad. This year we are celebrating all the laughter they've brought to our lives. These are my two rescues who rescued me. 




Miss Maya Grace says "Thanks for stopping by".




Mr. Brady Bug says "I hope to see you again".


And I say I hope you're enjoying all the love that we're seeing in Pets On Quilts.

  1. You know protecting the house is hard work - my guys are always at it too.

    Your right, the fabric and pattern do go well together. That is a very pretty quilt.

  2. I LOVE your quilts- I adore bright colors and these are simply perfect! Your furry models certainly approve! (Cats and swuirrels are evil perpetrators who disrupt a canine's univers- my three go crazy too at the ill manners of these invaders)

  7. I love your quilts and your "models." Our 7 month old pup is a rescue as well, although not with a tragic story (that we know of). Yours are almost too big for the bed, but just as helpful as my bunch!

  11. About time.

    What a great entry/post to the Pets on Quilts Show. Both your good looking guys are sweetie pies. And your quilts are spectacular. So cheerful. But, I agree with you - Brady Bug is definitely a model that likes his picture being taken. I think he needs to take on an additional job of modeling for others, especially quilt magazines. But then, I bet he is so picky he only wants to be photographed with "your" beautiful quilts.

  16. Maya is beautiful. I have the one of her on the quilt on my Pinterest animals on quilts board. I grew up with a wonderful German Shepherd so always have a soft spot for them. Love the photo bomb pics, esp the first one!

  29. HI! I am a new follower. I had to go back and read Maya and the bugs stories. How can people dump animals like that? Your puppers are beautiful as are your quilts. I love the patterns and fabrics you have chosen for them.

  31. Your quilts are just beautiful. There's not much room on the bed once the two dogs are sitting on it! They look very loveable.

  34. They are gorgeous (oh, and so are the quilts)! My Lilly (who is so much smaller) feels she needs to protect the entire neighborhood. I don't know from what, but she takes her job very seriously! Love the Kumari Garden fabrics!

  37. Definite photo bombing! But most of the time with their faces towards the camera enhancing the quilty goodness!

  38. What great photos of your dogs bombing your photos. LOL. You have 2 gorgeous dogs. I have 2 Dalmatians. I recently began volunteering at a local dog rescue centre here in my little corner of England.
