What advice would you give someone starting this project? Anyone can design a project, especially if you keep it simple. I cut small squares of dog fabrics and sewed them together with a rectangle in the middle (machine-embroidered with the dog's name). I also added a small border. I machine quilted the top to the batting with a muslin back, then layered it right sides together with the fur fabric, leaving an opening for turning it right side out. Then I stitched the opening closed and sewed around the edge and the border.

Cute cute cute! Great idea. I have a schnauzer too. I think I'll make him one. I know he'll love it. Thanks for the picture!

I made a quilt for our miniature schnauzer too. I use it to cover her up on cold winter nights. She sleeps on my bed, so it's easy to reach over and cover her up. She absolutely LOVES it and will actually pull it up a little with her teeth and cover her head! LOL I just used leftover blocks from another quilt.

Love to throw the top down to see how it looks and I know I have done good when the dogs come to lay on it

My cats are usually the first to come lay on a quilt top, whether I'm arranging blocks, measuring for borders, or admiring the finished top. Toby the dog prefers finished quilts or pillows (or his trusty dog bed). One of the cats LOVES to get under a quilt with me when I lay down for a nap...I don't know how he does it, but he can HEAR me unfold a quilt from wherever he is in the house and he comes running :)
