Let's Book It July Link Up


I hope you are being encouraged to dust off those books, magazines, patterns, and net downloads.  We have that long list of 'I want to make' and then let it sit - or add to it.  Me list had a dog mini for my Vet on it so I pulled out this book and wanted to use the cover quilt - modified.



I went to my scrap basket and pulled 'doggy' items and fun prints - we want our pets to have fun at the Vet's office right?  Luckily mine only take their annual trek and that is always a fun trip!  (shhh - Moe cries like a baby the whole time)  See, I had to take those Santa hats off - a minor adjustment to the pattern.



Here's the finished quilt.  I wanted it fun and fresh.  I tried beads and buttons and other embellishments for the dog's faces, but in the end I decided to stay with just the plain setting.  The day I delivered it, she was in surgery, but she called later to thank me.  Have you ever made a little something to thank someone who supplies you with a service?

  10. Very fun doggy quilt! It's no wonder the vet loved it, it's bright and colorful.

    I've been enjoying the challenge. I just wish I sewed faster, so I could switch my challenge subject a bit more frequently.

  13. That is a gorgeous quilt for the vet Sharon. My old dog, a huge golden retriever, used to insist on sitting on my lap whenever we went to the vet. Very squashy on those little reception chairs.
