    Every time my dogs go to the groomer, they get bandanas tied around their necks. . . hmmm. . what are bandanas but nicely cut triangles of fabric, and what self-respecting quilter would let ready-cut fabric go to waste? This is what I did with a small fraction of my "bandana stash". I made three of these already, gave one baby-sized and one Queen sized back to the groomer, and this is mine. Still have enough bandanas for at least three more K sized quilts.

    Good heavens that's a lot of bandanas do you have more than one dog? When I take my dog to the groomed it's $70 bucks (that's more than my hair cut) needless to say it would take me a long time to collect that many.

    Your quilt is beautiful what a nice gift ton give your groomed :-)

    OMG I never thought about keeping them. My pups hate bandanas and I just take them off and leave them on the groomer's counter. Very cute idea!

    Actually, I did make one a doggy quilt from them a long time ago. She's gone now, bless her sweet heart. These bandanas make 4 triangles for a whole pinwheel. My dog now is 55 lbs. The one before her was even bigger, but the two before were little-bitties - 6 lbs. each, so theirs were just half-pinwheels (two triangles each). But I've been taking my dogs to the same groomer since 1987, so over the years, I have collected a buuuuunch of pinwheels.
