    Seeing there are so many animal lovers in our quilting world, I wanted to share a quilt I made for my son-in-law.

    He had scoffed when I made a quilt for my daughter to snuggle on the couch with in winter, but it wasn't long before he announced that her quilt was far too short for his 6'5" length. Not long after, they brought home a new puppy that "Dad" was besotted with so his Christmas present that year was a Puppy Quilt. I included as much doggy fabric as I could find and photos of the new puppy as well as their older dog. It was a very scrappy type quilt that just evolved as I found fabrics and lots of fun to do. He just loves it - and so does puppy :!: :D

    What a great quilt! Not being a pet owner (other than fish), it's easy to forget how much some people love their pets. I think most animal lovers would love a quilt like that. :)

    Great quilt. You should get a photo of SIL and pup cuddled together in it. I'll bet that they do.

    Yes they do both cuddle up in it along with another puppy addition to the family. I will try to get a photo of them all.

    Here's a closeup of doting dad and baby Bella.

    Ashley just looooooves his baby Bella.

    Oh Katier825 FISH ARE GREAT PETS TOO! I have a tropical tank inside and a pond outside. I can spend hours just watching them, especially sitting in the sun beside the pond with a cuppa. My son has a marine reef aquarium and enjoys scuba diving and I am collecting fabric for a sea/fish/scuba diving quilt for him.

    Here is one of the photos he took while scuba diving that I have printed onto fabric for his quilt.

    Oh how cute!

    Yeah men sometimes act like they don't want one of their own, but then if you make them one they love it and use it! :lol:
