My Pets on Quilts Entry

Here is my entry for the Pets on Quilts show - there is still lots of time to enter - click on the button in my sidebar to go to the rules/entry page on SewCalGal's blog.

OK, I am entering both my Dog on a quilt - this quilted wall hanging is of my Lucky Lu, the King of the Jack Russel's! At least, this is what we tell him when he is being good. He is also my Little Pig. Please click here to see what I mean. And I am entering my Halloween kitty large table runner. First the dog quilt.
Here is the quilt:
 This is approx 14 1/2" by 24", it is from a picture I took of Lucky doing his little pig roll.


 And here is the King of the JRT's himself! Lucky Lu!
 Had to take one pic in the sun since it came out for a little bit.

This is the picture I used.

And I could not forget about my kitties! Here is a Halloween hand embroidery pattern I made up featuring my little fur babies, Tika and Jada. It is not done - but it is getting there. We have a large coffee table and I am making this to fit nicely on the center of it.


 Miss Jada Bean has graced me with her presence - all I had to do was put this on the floor and pretend I was going to work on it.
 Ah, here comes my other inspector.
Jada: " Hey Tika, what do you want? I am already inspecting this"
 Tika: " I just came to say hi, can't a guy say Hi?"
 Jada,:" Hmp, Hi my Petunia! You came to double check my work - you always do this"
 Tika: " No really, I just want to say hi.
 Cannot tell who is yelling what, all breaks loose - eek the fight is on over who gets to inspect what!
 Battle is on, it looks close. Ah, maybe not, Tika is about to cause damage!
 In the end, like a smart man, Tika knows to back down.
 Right Jada girl?
Jada: " Don't look at me, can't you see I'm busy??"    
Mom: " Sorry Bean".

  5. Love your Lucky Lu quilt. Great job doing it from a photo! I also love the Halloween cat quilt. You cats are beautiful. My tuxedo cats sometimes put each other in a head lock. They are brothers. What starts out as a friendly play fight usually turns into a growling, hissing, fur flying free for all. Usually Oscar ends up spitting up huge chunks of Felix's fur.
