Dog Quilts

I’ve recently made quilts for our 3 dogs using scraps left from the ‘Between Quilt’ I’ve been making.  The first finished was Nugget’s quilt but I mistakenly gave it to him before snapping a photo.  Now, it’s near impossible to see the quilt without the dog!  As the picture indicates, he loves it.

The quilts were made with 3 layers of extra-loft batting and tied with yarn left from another project.  Each quilt has a backing made with UBER-bright fabric I wouldn’t use anywhere else.  The dogs don’t seem to mind.

Lolita and Coalie have been presented with their quilts and love them as much as Nugget loves his.  Our living room now resembles a brightly colored, furry folks slumber party!  I like it!

As is always the case, I have leftover scraps from making these leftover scraps quilts.  No worry.  I’m preparing to make mug rugs with some of them and resigning myself with the fact I will ALWAYS have scraps.

I still need to add borders to the Between Quilt.  I plan to frame the main body with a narrow black border, then add a piano key pieced border to finish the top.  All the pieces are cut and I will soon give them my undivided attention.

Serious stormy weather plowed through our area last night.  Our Internet service has taken a beating so we will be focused on lots of repairs in the coming days.  No fun!

Since we’ve chosen not to plant a vegetable garden this season, it’s a little surprising to look out and see a healthy bunch of dill plants.  They appear happier than those purposely planted and lovingly watered last year!  I’m hoping to find some volunteer basil too as the season progresses.  Unfortunately, there are no cucumbers, tomatoes, peppers or peas to accompany them.  We have dandelions and morning glory instead.
