As any regular blog readers know I'm a big dog person and they come work with me pretty often in the studio! The past few months have been pretty tough on us pet-wise, we lost two of our beloved dogs, but a new furry friend has joined the family recently and he's a hoot. So without further ado, some recent pets-on-quilts!
We start with Bullett and Bentley "helping" me baste this whole cloth painted quilt. They didn't understand why I kept wanting them to move- the quilt was so much softer than the floor....
And here's the quilt finished, it's one of my dimensional smocked pieces.

Bullett is one of the pups we lost this year, he was well over thirteen years old, but it was still too soon. He loved to cuddle up under the work table with the giant batting roll....
Our new pup's name is Blue, so far he hasn't invaded any quilts, but he did take the opportunity to bed down on top of the clean white photography backdrop when one of my other fabric sculptures was up for picture taking. Oh Blue, we love you (but not the hair and dirt you left behind).
I hope you enjoy my pets on quilts as well as the rest over at the link up! Thanks so much to Lily Pad quilting for hosting and gathering up the sponsors!
