Pets on Quilts 2017!

Didn’t think I’d have a post so soon, but its pets on quilts day.    It’s sponsored by Lily Pad Quilting and has lots of prizes, but, of course, you must follow the rules!

Here is a picture of my labradoodle, today, after his grooming.  Percy is 9 and has Austalian lines.  We have had him since he was a puppy and love him to death.  You can see a picture of him as a puppy in my About Me page.

The quilt he is on was my first quilt – all hand pieced and quilted.  I love it an use it often.  You can see we are sleeping on a mattress on the floor – downsizing problems.  I also made the knitted afghan many years ago (like early ’80s).

Just in case you think he is perfect, here is what he likes to do on the bed….

    I think Percy and Sophie need to meet each other; they are the same age and both are half poodles and their puppies would be lhapso labrodoodles. Wouldn't they be cute.

    I really love that you have a hand-sewn quilt. My first quilt is not nearly so nice. 🙂 Percy is adorable, and it took me a while to find his head on that scuffling-around pic. lol!

      I do love the quilt, and use it all the time. I was already a sewist so, I think I was lucky the way it turned out. Percy is a lovely, wonderful dog!
