my Pets on Quilts entry

Voting is now open at Lilypadquilting web site.

We hope you like our pets on quilts and vote for us... we are entry Number 4  the one with puppies Beep and Bop..  /Voting is now closed, winners have been chosen... we didn't win, but the quilts that did were so cute... my all time fave was the Scotties decorating  the Christmas tree...  great job to all the Pets on Quilts quilters... I think they are all winners..after all they have the quilts and pets and what better prize..
 
 
 
Every year I entered the Pets on Quilts event when SewCalGal hosted  it, but last year the event was taken on my Lily Pad Quilting and somehow I missed getting a entry in on time, This year I had the date saved ..
 
There are many categories to enter in,
  • Cat on Quilt
  • Dog on Quilt
  • Other pet on Quilt
  • Pet-themed quilt
  • EQ designed quilt
  • Art quilt

  • I think I hit every category with my post..  all my quilts are designed on EQ 7 software, most are cut out using Accuquilt GO fabric cutter..

     so with out further ado here is my entry. 


    I had to choose just one photo as my entry and this year it is Beep and Bop two of our puppies.. They are seen posing on Dad's quilt.. we call them the twins as they look so much alike.
    After you see the two little ones, take a further look on this post to see the animal themed quilts that I make with my charity group WOCS and some of our other dogs on quilts..  At the bottom of this post you will find the link to visit the rest of the entries for the event..





    The rest of the story
     
    As many of my regular readers know I belong to a on line charity group called The World of Charity Stitching Group..  they come up with themes each month for ill children, seniors in nursing homes, abused women and children, and cancer patients.  Many times these themes are animal themes.. so here are just a few of my charity quilts both finished and delivered and some still in the works..
     
    Here are some of my animal themed charity quilts

    My Family Quilts
     
    As for my family quilts, well we raise Pomeranians and they think the family quilts are where the puppies and dogs should be..
    try to take a picture of a quilt for my Mother in law and Mist  is there posing so pretty

    newborn babies on their quilt

    a chocolate cutie

    a little Merle playing on dads quilt

    the big boys posing for their ad..

    last is Beep and Bop again on dads quilt posing for their puppy ad.
     
    YEP we have a few puppies on quilts and many pet or animal themed quilts that I make for WOCS group.
     
    As for pet shelter beds and quilts..
    I make mini quilts for each puppy to take to their new homes, I make sure to get the litter mates and their mom's scent on the quilts so it will calm the pups when they get to their new home.
     
    I don't make beds for our local shelter as they have a man who makes PVC pipe and canvas beds and they use old towels.. so we donate our old towels and we try to take a 50 lb bag of food in each month to our shelter and many times we stop at the Dollar Tree store and pick up doggie toys for the shelter animals.
     
    Taking food and toys to the shelter is so appreciated by the shelters as most work on a very limited budget... oh and don't forget the treats...
     
     
    If you like seeing  my Pets on Quilts post there are more to see at

    My two favorite quilts were the hens. Love how you made the blocks the hens were in look 3-D...then I am a sucker for butterflies, too. Also, thanks so much you do for your local charities...I especially love your work with the local animal shelter that you described. And...I LOVE that you send a mini-quilt home with all your puppies with the scent of their mama and litter mates. Super idea that shows you really care!
    God Bless,
    Mindy, Mama of the Slimmer Pugs & Purrs

    Beep and Bop are so gosh darn cute. Perfect models. And that chocolate puppy just tugged at my heart. Too yummy!

    Beautiful quilts too! And thanks for all you do to help others. I've made catnip toys and dog peds for my local shelter, but hadn't thought about the dollar store and dog toys. Thanks..I'm going to keep an eye out for such things to donate.
