It’s time. I can honestly say this is my favorite event of the year – The Annual Pets on Quilts Show, hosted by Snoodles of Lily Pad Quilting.
I love seeing all the cute pets on beautiful quilts. This is a super fun event for bloggers and non-bloggers who love animals. I’ll confess I love all sorts of animals and I love quilting, so this show is meant to be. Plus, Snoodles does such a great job hosting this event and has lined up amazing sponsors who have donated generous prizes. But while winning prizes can be great fun, the fun is really all about seeing all the sweet pets and beautiful quilts. And, you’ll even find pet themed quilts that are inspirational.
I’ll also confess, I don’t have a pet. All my pets are now in pet heaven. While I’d love to adopt a pet from a shelter, I’m a few years off from being able to offer a furr-ever loving home. In the meantime, I volunteer to pet watch and walk where ever I can.
I thought I’d share a picture of a sweet dog on a recent quilt I made. The quilt was a free pattern and video tutorial from the Fat Quarter Shop for a classic Jacob’s Ladder Quilt.
This cute dog is a long hair Corgi. He was all about food and fortunately I had dog biscuits that his 2 legged mother approved me giving him one. He wanted to explore everything and became super excited once he found my quilt. He actually didn’t seem to want to get off of it. While I would have approved him to stay for an extended visit (even longer than a summer), his 2 legged mother insisted that he had to go with her when she left.
I want to encourage everyone to check out the Pets on Quilts Show which officially begins today. You can find a Linky Party tool on Lily Pad Quilting. Participants can share anytime during the show (linky tool is live), so you may want to bookmark and go back. I love to click thru all the entries to learn more about the sweet pets, as well as the beautiful quilts. IF you have a pet or a pet themed quilt, don’t overlook the fact that even though this show started today, there is still time to snap some photos and enter. Just pop by Lily Pad Quilting for more info on this super fun event. And, I hope you’ll help spread the word too!
