    Have you made quilts for your dogs, cats or other pets?

    I was wondering who has made quilts for our furry kids. I am going to make one.

    We have a male shih tzu dog who is 7 years old. He is always laying on my quilt so I guess it is time to make him one of his own. He also likes to sit on a chair so will make a cover for the chair.

    Have fun!

    I have a blood hound who loves his quilt. He tears up everything else in his yard but his stuffed animals and his quilty. When we mow he runs to gather them all up in his house. Then my Cat has several around so wherever I am she will plop down on her quilt, not mine.

    I made a quilt for my Great Dane/Mastiff mix. The exact moment I laid it on the floor she was on it. She so loved that blanket.

    I made my kitty buddy many little quilts to lay on and curl under when she gets cold but she still prefers laying on mine.

    I sure have. Lieber had a blue one in the Four Patch style, and Smoky has one, and as you can see, she enjoyed it before it was even finished.

    Yep and I am sewing one together today for a friend's fur baby just like this one. I made this for jake last month, taking the quilt to to my friend tomorrow to be quilted with her mid arm.

    I love the fur babies, but will not hand quilt for them. LOL

    I'd make one for each dog if they'd quit eating fabric.

    Sure each of my 3 dogs have their own quilts, Lexi's (lab) is curled up on the floor on hers, General (Basset Hound) in his own chair on his and Tootsie Roll (Dachshund) in the chair with me on her quilt. they are my children.

    Not really FOR them, but definitely because of them. Before my car accident I was pretty active in showing my basenjis and used to make wall hangings for the winners of certain classes at our national show. They also 'lure course' so I incorporate that into the quilts too

    I made a really cute fleece blanket for my DS and DL two cats, Emma and Bella. They fight over it so I am going to have to make a second next time I visit.

    i am in the process of making my cat her own quilt her name is allie and we have gotten to calling her allie cats. the other week i was at joann and found some debbie mumm fabric that had alley cats all over it - of course i bought it! yesterday found some more of hers that will be the border for the quilt - again with alley cats on it! hopefully there will be enough to make a table runner out of it for me!

    I just bought fabric to make quilts for my daughter's kitties! They like to lay on the quilt I made for her, so maybe they'll like having one of their own :-)

    I don't have to make my pets quilts b/c they just take their own from all of mine :D We buried our little kitty Buffy in a quilt I made- may sound crazy but I never regretted it. She was such a sweetie and it made me happy to wrap her all up.
