Back to school, back to reality

Quilted dog bed

I do like a small quilting project for the immediate satisfaction.  Quilts rarely get finished in this house.  Recently I made a quilted cover for our dear Lucy's bed.

The awful vinyl cover that this dog bed came with was not going to cut it for our pooch.  The cover I made was very much inspired by this image in my favourites on flickr.

I used a Denyse Schmidt fat quarter bundle for the sides and the piping.  I prewashed some linen for the top and bottom and then quilted it in a diagonal grid pattern.  I inserted a big metal zip that would stand up to a beating and frequent washings which I hid in the seam under the piping.  The sides are quilted in a loop-the-loop pattern.

The bottom line though, is that Lucy approves and is happy to sit on this bed and not the sofas.

What a lucky dog. Love those ears!

I love that dog pillow! I don't have a dog, but I have kids. Perhaps I can make one for them and perhaps they would lay there still, even if just for a few minutes

Have a nice week!
