    Here is a little quilt that I made to go in the dog room over the top half of the window between that room and the kitchen. The pattern is Let Sleeping Dogs Lie. I modified the dog drawings to match my dogs, past and present. I thought they were cuter with googly eyes, so that's what I used.

    The dogs are (clockwise around each motif):

    Maggie a wirey terrier mix, Evelyn a rat terrier, Jack a schipperke, Puddin a beagle

    Rocket a pit bull mix, Dixie a hound mix, Leila a black and tan coonhound, Mr. Big a retriever mix

    Henry a hound mix (my avatar), Tootsie a little black dog, Doodle a pug, Possum a blue heeler mix

    I live in the country and people dump dogs on the road out here. Most of these dogs just showed up here needing a home.

    I'm going to have to look for the pattern for this one! My son and DIL own a dog day care and this would be a perfect gift.
    Of course I'll have to figure out how to add a Doodle or 2:lol:

    That is so cute. I could make a few of them with all the dogs I've had over the years! Great job.

    Oh it's just beautiful. How nice you are to make this in rememberance of your dogs past and present. I'm a dog lover too. I like your picture of Henry. Is he still with you?
