Good Morning, Quilters, Doggies and Kitties!

Grab a cup of coffee and a few kibbles, you’re in for a real treat…

We have another episode of Dogs, a few Cats, and Quilts–(more on Monday, too!)

Our pets certainly LOVE to get right in on the action…

If these pets had opposable thumbs, I think they’d be quilters!

Thank you to all the pets and pet-lovers who sent in photos!  It’s been a great show–and more to come!


You can trust your dog to guard your house, but never trust your dog to guard your sandwich!

  1. Really enjoyed the pet photos. We no longer have any, but enjoy our granddogs/kitties: Belle, Cinnamon, BJ, Munchkin, Buddy, Charlie, China, Miss Kitty, Tiger, Bootsie and Panda. Pets do bring such joy. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Proves how much we love our furry family members. We spend hours/months making something and when done – they waltz over and lay right on it. Hey – it’s a compliment from your best friend that they like your work.

  3. Are the pics ever cute. I have an American Eskimo, and when I am sewing she wants to be a lap dog and thinks I should pay attention to just her. She loves my Heritage quilt. Did I mention that she is all white and sheds a lot.

  4. I think our pets know there is another love in our lives that is competing with them for our attention—so they have to get right in the middle of the project. Sort of like they are saying, “pick me, pick me!” Love them all.

  5. That little kitty “Skye” is the sweetest kitty I’ve seen in a long time. If I saw a little black sweetie with golden eyes like that at our local shelter, I wouldn’t be able to hold fast to my “no more kitties” rule!

We'd LOVE to hear! Please reply...
