It's A Dog's Life Sew It - Show It Challenge Blog Hop

 Dogs leave paw prints on our hearts.

This month Carol of Just Let Me Quilt challenged us to sew something with a dog theme or dog fabric.  What a great idea to show our loyal companions some love!  Thank you, Carol, for this wonderful challenge.  

I love all my doggies, past and present, and I just had to participate in this tribute to pets.  One thing about animals, they know how to get their point across.  Cat, dog, bird, or gerbil, they all have distinctive personalities and they all have their own way of expressing themselves.  

My project today is dedicated to my little dachshund Lucy.  She had long ears that she used to let me know what was going on.  In this very simple little quilt, the alternating blocks show the ears in different poses.  To add a little something extra to the quilt, I sewed loose paws overlapping the print blocks.          

I found the cutest dog fabric in my stash and used it to back this quilt.  The overall quilt is lap size, about 40" x 60", perfect to throw over your lap while you're watching tv on a chilly night.  And of course it's big enough to accommodate a pup on your lap.  

I hope you enjoyed seeing my doggy quilt.  Thank you again, Carol, for hosting this fun blog hop.
