Default Pet beds for shelters

I like the design of this pattern. It helps reduce the clumping of scraps.

That's a good idea. I bet the puppies like it better to ... no scraps bunching up in one area leaving no scraps in other areas. Thanks for the link.

Only if the individual parts are washable. If you use a heavy decorator fabric that says dry clean only, I wouldn't wash.

I am a long arm quilter and am continually throwing scraps of batting away! I am going to start saving them now to make these beds for shelter animals. Thanks for sharing!
