    I got the idea for this quilt from one posted on this board. When I saw the dog fabric I knew that I had to have it to make one for my son who is a professional dog trainer and teaches at an animal behavior college.
    The design is totally mine and I added other complimentary fabric.
    It is machine pieced and appliqued and hand quilted.
    I will be giving it to my son for Christmas and hope that he likes it. He had asked me to make a lap quilt whenever I had time so I made time to get it done for Christmas.

    I love the quilt. It is in my mind now. Don't be surprised if some version of it doesn't show up with Airedales in the dog houses for a fundraiser.

    Thank you for agreeing to that. The Airedales will be the ones benefiting from it, whenever it happens.
