    Dog Quilt

    My stepfather loves sitting by his front window to read and wait for the neighborhood dogs to walk by. Sometimes the dog will sit in front of the house and refuse to move until it see him and gets a treat. He is so in love with dogs so I thought for his 50th birthday that this quilt would be perfect! Now he can be all warm and cozy when he sits by the drafty window waiting for his poochies to come visit.

    That doggie fabric is outstanding ... as well as the paw prints and other fabrics! Beautiful quilt! A quilt with a story is always a hit.
    Make it a scrappy happy day!

    Love the bulldogs on your avatar. Your quilt looks so retro - you did a great job on combining the fabric patterns and colors and I love the staggered straight-line quilting. Great job!
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.

    What a sweet sentiment, to keep him warm while he waits for his heart to get warmed by the visiting dogs!
    Go forth and sew!

    Thanks everyone, he's been such a great stepdad to us and we are lucky to have him in our lives. I can't wait until his birthday, with all your kind words I'm even more excited to give it to him.

    Your Dad will love it - I made a quilt for my Dad a few years ago and was pleasantly surprised at how much he treasured it
