Over the Top Pet Bed

If you were hoping to find a post about the New Year, I am sorry to disappoint you.  I struggle with writing, it has never been one of my strengths, so forming all those thoughts into words would not be easy for me.  Instead I will wish you all a Happy and Healthy New Year and will move on to another one of my creations.

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.
