While catching up on my blog reading this weekend, I learned about the virtual Pet and Quilt Show hosted by Lily Pad Quilting. The idea is to post a photo of a pet on a quilt or a pet-themed quilt on your blog or flickr page and enter your photo on the linky party at Lily Pad Quilting.
Once the linky party closes, readers can vote on the best pictures and the prizes are... well... awesome! :-)
So I decided to pull out one of my very first quilts and ask Bronx to pose for me.
Bronx is a mastiff-american bulldog mix and we inherited him from my step son who simply didn't have the lifestyle it takes to be a pet parent. Bronx came to us at 8 months and he is now 3 years old. And although he might look pretty intimidating, this puppy is the most gentle, affectionate, and loyal dog you will ever meet. I just love him to pieces.
This is the 3rd quilt I ever made. Before I knew about designer fabric, about the importance of buying good quality thread and before I learned about how critical an exact 1/4" seam can be. So it isn't perfect... far from it. But I love the colours and the sailboats.
Please make sure you check out all the entries in the Pets on Quilts show and vote for your favourite! :-)
Hope you all had a great weekend!
