When I stumbled across SewCalGal's 2011 Pets on Quilts Show, I had to find this picture and enter.
It's all about the dog. The quilt is incidental.
She fills whatever space she enters.
I love this little rat!
These pictures are eight years old and she is much changed. She is mostly blind and deaf and has an inoperable tumor that will eventually carry her away. But, she gets frisky about her kibble and will still spin for treats. I'm loving her and taking care of her to the end.
About the quilt. My sister made it, entirely I think, from scraps from our old clothes, little tops & dresses we sewed for ourselves in high school. I used it for picnics and outdoor concerts throughout my twenties and just generally abused it. It's made of tough stuff and I appreciate it more now.
For some reason, I can't get the button on my blog, but go here to see and vote (tomorrow and Sunday) on all the Pets on Quilts entries!
