After making the dog bed for my sister, my children begged me to make one for our cat and dog. Since I always love when I am asked to create, I jumped on it and purchased my supplies immediately. My pets are now the happy owners of their new bed.
I purchased the fabric at my local fabric store and cut the 2 1/2" strips myself to make the '800' quilt. I am not sure if I like the colours. It does add a pop of colour into my room and does coordinate with my house, or at least my style, however, the bed I made last week is tough competition. It may be because I put so much thought in to the last dog bed that it is hard to measure up.
Here is a picture of my dog on his bed. He normally sleeps on the couch, but since he has had the bed I find him on it more than the couch! Please forgive his sad face. I assure you it is not his bed that is giving him the look. I believe his expression is a plea for help, "Please bring me to the groomer, I am too hot with all this fur!"
The cat enjoys it too, not quite as much, but if you put her on it she stays and has a nap :)
I have to add that this style of quilt is amazingly fast. It is refreshing to make a quilt (no binding in this case) that looks good and is so easy. If you are looking for a simple quilt try it. Here is a tutorial for you.
