Category #1 Dog on Quilt
You still have time to share a post featuring your pet on a quilt or your quilt that features a pet. See all of the information at Lily Pad Quilting.
I did not even have to set up this "photo shoot". I came out of the shower and Toby had hopped up on my bed. It is perfect for the Pets on Quilts Show!
I made this quilt top in 2002 and it was one of the first quilts I quilted on my long arm machine in 2003. I made it for my in laws, but we have it on our bed, as they have both passed away. I love all the blue prints, but I do not like the quilting. I left too many "un quilted" spaces. I do not like the way the fabric just hangs there. I keep it on my bed as it was one of the first quilts I personally quilted for family.
I only quilted a few quilts, (way back in the beginning) loosely quilted, like this one. I was just learning how to quilt!
I like the heart as it is filled with the free style loops and lazy daisies, but there should have been some background quilting like a meandering around the heart. Remember, I was new to long arm quilting back in 2003.
When quilts have blank spaces the fabric hangs and gaps up. I learned fast after I quilted this quilt. I would never leave blank spaces when quilting again.
Sometimes, I think I should roll this quilt on my quilting machine and fill in the spaces, but then I remind myself that it is good to look back and see where I started and how far I have come in 11 years! WOW!

I wrapped up Toby in the quilt for a cuddled up photo. I love that the morning sun was streaming in the window on our sweet little Toby.
