    The Hounds of Baronville

    Here is a link http://www.quiltingboard.com/picture...d-t177192.html to a post I made about a year ago. I had made a dog bed for my two mutts and made a quilt just for them. I guess you might say I’m crazy about my dogs. Well that quilt is almost worn out from the use and laundering it gets. The seams are starting to fail and it may never come completely clean again (thanks to North Carolina red clay ).
    The last 2 and a half weeks have been spent making them a new quilt. This time there will be no seams to fail in the area where they lie on it. It is almost a whole cloth quilt. I put 2 layers of brown down the center where it will get the most wear and I backed it with scraps of fleece that I’ve been wondering what to do with. Also, I used the cheapest poly batting available! $7.50 for a double bed size! I drew the silhouettes with black Sharpie pens (which I can renew the color on when they start to fade). I Knew I would be quilting very densely so I just used up a lot of my leftover threads spools and just kept changing colors, however, the quilting on this quilt is not as nice as I would like because I was in a hurry to ‘get-er-dun’ and because it was a VERY heavy quilt! I’ve done several king sized quilts that were easier to quilt on my DSM. My arms and shoulders are paying the price for that now. Don’t think I’m going to do much quilting for a day or two….although, I do have 3 UFOs calling my name….I can hear them from here….

    I LOVE the dense quilting surrounding the dog figures - the patchwork of lines would also be great on a people quilt! And I'm a sucker for the swirls anywhere.
    The corner finishes are also very interesting

    I find the quilt really whimsical - even if it's for a dog ;-)

    Your babies will love. Guess I am crazy too as all 4 of my dogs have their own quilt, and they still insist on lying on mine.

    Lovely quilt for your fur babies --- I know they LOVE quilts, as mine do, too. Both our dogs love to be covered up at night on our bed with their quilts. Thank you for loving your dogs so much and taking such good care of them....I wish a lot more folks were like you. It saddens me when I see fur babies treated so terribly.

    my dog would love that. Once i get my sewing room organized, making a quilt for my dog is going to be a top priority. One that I can put on the couch for when he "sneaks" on it when we go to bed. Yeah, like we don't know he's been on the couch. He's a 95lb Chocolate Lab.
