Tuesday Treats: Love Me; Love my Pet

Our pets are a big part of our lives.

They are members of the family. So, it is no surprise that some of us make quilts with a pet theme.

I have special friends that have made an addition to their family with a miniature dachshund, Aspen.

Like many pets, Aspen has a distinctive personality.

He is friendly and inquisitive and a delight to be around.

When I found this perfect fabric, I decided to make a small quilt to accent a teal coloured chair and a white leather sofa in my friend’s lounge AND let visitors know there is a special member in this household.

Big blocks show off the special pet print and can be pieced together in no time.

My special quilt is almost finished and is as distinctive and unique as Aspen.
