SO SWEET and beautiful. Even with the Shammy Poop of Approval. Did not know it was intended to be a Dog Rug but dogs have a way of making things their own.

You did a fantastic job. Need to consult with you about an estate sale item I purchased and the best way to clean it since it's a bedspread with original embroidery.

WOW Dani! That is beautiful!
Rockin' the stitches!

lisaschaos said...

That is just gorgeous! Love the color choices!!

Dani said...

Dogs do have that way about them. :)

Curious about the bedspread....how old do you think it is?

Dani said...

Thank you FC!

Lisa, I'm a sucker for the Anna Maria Horner fabrics. Love, love, love them!

Big Shamu said...

Well it was an estate sale of a woman who did a lot of her own sewing. I'm guessing at least 40 or 50 years old. They had already sold a lot of quilts much like what you've done here. But I'm guessing that people don't realize the embroidery quilts are just as beautiful as the other quilts. This was one of a pair that she must of had for a guest room pair of full size beds. I'll send you a picture tonight.

Dani said...

Did you pick up any old kitchen stuff while you were there?

Big Shamu said...

Yes, will blog that later this week.

Dani said...

ooooolala!

Melissa said...

yay! And it's beautiful and functional for EVERYONE!

Dani said...

LoL! That's one way to look at it.

All flat things are dog rugs!
And chicken rugs!

Very, very purty! And a lot of work.

Back in the day, for my 4 nieces, I would send them a fabric pack from one of the mail order places. Millions, it seemed, of little squares. They would end up all over the spare bedroom arranged in various little fabric bouquets. Aunts, friends and neighbors would get involved. This was the summer before their senior year. Finally they would pick out their fabric, I would order and fashion some sort of quilt out of it for them to take to college. To be presented upon high school graduation.

Your quilt brought back those memories.

Love the quilt and Jiggs and Shammy enjoying the comfort of the comforter.

Have I ever told you that my "Chicken Little" could be Laverne's twin?

Island Rider said...

Oh, pretty. But, I did have to wonder if that chicken is potty trained.

chickory said...

Boxer said...

It's fabulous, btw!

Dani said...

Beautiful and always nice to have the "seal' of approval from the family.

LaDivaCucina said...

Well done, done, done! Seriously, I'm getting anxious just looking at all of those corners that you lined up so evenly! It's real purdy, Dani!
