Pets On Quilts!!!

Yay!  It is August :o)  It is time for the Pets On Quilts Parade!!!  Snoodles and Padsworth over at Lily Pad Quilting are hosting the 2012 Pets On Quilts and it is awesome!  Who knew so many pets all did the same thing, yet were all different too!? 

So, here's my entry to the parade (and a bunshof other pics that I couldn't resist when I dug them up):
This is how I, er I mean, WE bind quilts. 
Since all three are on the quilt (and two more under Annie) - I can't decide if it's a cat on quilt or dog on quilt category...any suggestions?  There are two dogs and one cat...

And here are the rest:

A wall hanging I made for the breeder we got Oakleigh from.  This is a Silver Linings Originals paper piecing pattern and I modified the spots to match the ones on her beloved Harley.
A close-up.

O looking at the camera - she's still a baby!

O and Annie looking at me, what the heck Mom?  Still a baby....

All three of them on the sofa with me, O is curled up, Molly is wondering why she's lost her spot to a small annoyance and Annie chillin at my feet.

I wouldn't let O on my lap when I was binding this one, I think Molly is under it in my lap.

Molly cat on a kitty quilt her Aunt Nancy made for her.  The only way I can get her to use it on a regular basis (she isn't a normal quilty kitty) is to put it on a chair in a quiet room, so it's in my sewing room.

Annie found a warm spot under a quilt that just came out of the dryer.  I think O may be under it on the other end of the couch. 

That's the girls and Molly!  Our furchildren.  Just thinking of them makes my heart happy (and I start to worry about my cucumbers in the garden disappearing too).  Make sure  you check out everyone else on the parade - they're all awesome and totally fun :o)

  5. Such an adorable troupe of helpers, they certainly seem happy and very comfy. Hand sewing bindings must take no time at all with all that help...

  13. What a great pile of pets, is that a category? I really like how there's someone under the quilts each time, nice to know all of your work is so appreciated.

  14. Lovely quilts and beautiful babies. Trying to bind a quilt with 2 or more animals in your lap is a lesson in logistics isn't it?

  16. Hi! How nice to meet all of you! You really have great company for binding! Your furchildren are really sweet and your quilts so beautiful! And , wow, I love your bike! I would love to have one, but here the traffic is too scary and I prefer car even the weather is better for a bike. Hb used to have a big one and we made great trips. Now (unfortunately) he has changed to scooter.

  26. All the pets are beautiful but O has such a place in my heart! Love those GSPs (second to my vizsla and lab/vizsla of course). :D Great quilt! I want to do one of the vizsla but haven't found a pattern I like enough or feel comfortable enough adapting yet.

  29. I understand about the binding. My pets who are no longer with me used to "help" me by pulling out pins - a budgerigar and rabbit. The rabbit also used to pull at the fabric so that he coudl sit on my feet.

  31. I am laughing about the photo of Oakleigh on the quilt while you are trying to bind it -- that is what our Lulu used to do! Thank you for sharing these wonderful photos and quilts, and I especially love that paper pieced one -- what an amazing gift for the breeder :)
