Pets on Quilts!

Entry - Dogs on Quilts

I made this up cycled quilt for us, but Gabby and Toby think I made it for them!


All cuddled up!







I upcycled a pair of patchwork shorts, denim dresses, and denim shirts into a a cozy warm quilt.  I even used a washable wool batting to make it extra warm for our Wisconsin winters.





I am a long arm quilter and I work at home.  I keep the heat on low and my little sweethearts love to cuddle up in this quilt during the day, while I am working.


I cut the pieces from the shorts at an angle to give it more interest!


So hop on over to Pets on Quilts and see all the Pets on Quilts! 
I am sponsoring three quilting prizes - value of $30.00 each for the Pets on Quilts Blog Hop!
Enjoy the pet blog hopping!

It is nice of Gabby and Toby to let you use "their" quilt once in a while.....they look great in it, by the way........I always love reading your posts because they usually come complete with directions! Great use of on hand fabric.
