    "Grandog" Quilt

    I participated in a dog block swap here on the QB last year. It was my first swap of that kind. I received many very nice blocks. My DD and SIL have there "baby" that they rescued from the local Humane Society. I let them go through the blocks and pick out the ones they wanted for his quilt. I had my first grandson in the mean time, (same DD and SIL are the parents). So, needless to say, I focused my quilting time on my human grandson. I finally finished the quilt for my grandog, Wilbur. As you can see, he loves it.His nickname is crocie because he is long like a crocodile. Thanks to the swappers that made this possible. My LQS did the quilting of pawprints on it. I think it was the first quilt anyone brought in for a dog.

    That is an awesome quilt. I can see Wilbur loves it, too. They love their grammas just like the human ones do - and know how to get their way as well.

    Wilbur's just soaking up the love. His coat/markings look like he's wearing a tweed sweater

    I can't believe you made it for the dog... It's positively beautiful.. I'm a dog lover.. but think it might be too nice.. Yes.. My guy lives a great life.. He even has a dog house in the livingroom that is cushioned.. BUT.. If you decide to make another.. Keep me in mind..
