Pets On Quilts 2013


pets on quilts

Hello everyone, it's that most wonderful time of the year, time for Pets on Quilts, when we're all allowed even encouraged to enjoy those quilts we love so much. It's all happening over at Lily Pad Quilting with our friend Padsworth, he's a frog but that's O.K., we'd let him in our yard.  


I'm Brady Bug and my best friend Maya is here too. We are better known as the terrible twins, terrible means loveable, cuddly and wonderful and we're not really twins.  

Maya and I spend a lot of our time right here watching out the window, mom calls it Dog TV. Lots of people walking by wave to us and one time our neighbor across the street did a tap dance for us, we're pretty famous.

But our favorite thing to do is help mom with her quilt pictures, we're known for our photo bombing.
This one's my favorite because mom said "good boy" and didn't make me move, I'm sure it's because I looked so handsome and that quilt matches my collar. 

But we also play this great game, Maya will show you how it works.
After mom gets the quilt hung and turns her back, we run up and put a ball on the steps, when mom sees it she either throws it away and we can chase it or

we try to get it back from her, it's all great fun and we know mom likes it since she laughs a lot.

Now it's time to talk about the quilt, mom made this for our grandmom, Dad's mom, it's for her birthday. 
 Grandmom loves hummingbirds so mom appliqued the center part then added her favorite log cabin blocks, it's 65" X 58" so G-mom (that's what we call her) has plenty of room to snuggle under it. The fabrics are batiks and hand dyed, it's free motion quilted in the white spaces and outlined in the cabin blocks. 

We really hope G-mom likes it, mom called it a labor of love.

Hope you had a good time visiting us today and you visit all of the other wonderful pets and quilts in the show, it's the best show on the web. You can click right here to get to the show, it's like magic. Maya and I are going to nap now in our favorite place, right under mom's feet.

Puppy kisses to all of you,
Maya and Brady
