It's a Dogs Life


I finally finished the quilt I put together for the dog's groomer Alessandra, who is expecting her son (to be named Henry) in a few weeks.

I had the blocks from a "black and white" block swap a couple of years ago and when I saw the darling dog print at The Quilted Vine's grand opening, I couldn't resist. The red inner border and binding have all sorts of "doggy" terms written in black like "fetch" and "good dog" and such as that.

I'm going to run out to the dog salon tomorrow and deliver it since we won't be seeing her in person until August.

UPDATE: I went today to the groomers to deliver the quilt and Baby Henry made his appearance 10 days early on Sunday, June 10th. Mother and baby are doing fine.

That turned out very cute. I love that doggie print. Good use of swap blocks, too :-) She will love it!

Tiny babies love the high contrast of black and white, so with that and the dogs, it's a perfect gift! I've never seen that dog print -- it's really cute.

I think it's hilarious that she was expecting a baby, and you made her a dog quilt. =) At first, I thought she might be getting a new dog!

I love the baby quilt you made for your dog groomer's baby! Too cute!
It has been over 3 months since I stopped by to read your site. I've been abit busy. Congratulations on your new grandson!! He's beautiful. I believe our two newest grandsons are just 4 days apart in age. This smiling and cooing stage is so precious!
