Pets on Quilts Show 2011

I LOVE this fun activity that Darlene, aka Sewcalgal, organizes for us every summer!

pets on quilts

If you read my blog much, then you know how much I adore my Westie, Yogi.

He is my constant companion in my sewing and quilting adventures. 

Yogi's bed

He has a permanent bed on my sewing table in my studio.  He is is sooo many pictures and posts here on my blog.

If there is a quilt on any piece of furniture (which there is a zillion of in my home)

Yogi's Halloween

or even any piece of block of a quilt in the making that Yogi can get to, he is soooooo ON it!!  LITERALLY!!

And not only does my camera LOVE Yogi, Yogi is a camera hog, too!!

We hope you are having a fun summer and staying as cool as possible in the heat!  The sewing room is the perfect place to be in all this heat, right?

  13. I had to giggle. I have a dog who has to be on a quilt or one in progress. I know to be very careful when doing a lay out with a quilt on the floor. I have sewed blocks together wrong after he has been on it.

  14. Well Yogi gets MY vote! His little inquisitive face always makes me smile! Next Wednesday I will officially be an empty nester and I'm pretty sure I'm in fo a rough patch. Think I may need a Yogi, but I'm also pretty sure that there is only 1 Yogi! Thanks for sharing him with us! Your 4 squared quilt is fabulous! Great colors

  38. I adore Yogi too. So happy to have you both in the show this year. Of course, I do think you need to create a photo portfolio of Yogi and your quilts and submit it to some quilt book publishers and magazines. I'm sure they'd love to hire him as a model. Such a cutie.

  51. I have started a at home quilting business for doggy quilts. I have sold a few and received lots of compliments. These are easy patterns to use for weather that us too uncomfortable for a heavy blankie. I have starting donating these quilts at pet adoption sites. Would do do more for our animal friends. Any suggestion?
