Pets of Quilts Show: Dana Gaffney's Brady Bug














This cute guy is Brad Bug, the four legged child of Dana Gaffney.  Dana submitted this entry via Facebook, with the following insight:

Here's my entry in the Pets on Quilts contest. This is Brady Bug who was thrilled to find a quilt on the floor, normally the dogs have to sneak up on them. I've even had Brady try to run off with one while I was sewing it. Brady came to us as a rescue, very sick with mange. After a year of love look how beautiful he is. I made the quilt using an X block. I like bright colors and this one turned out great. Thank you so much for opening the contest to non-bloggers. I know it makes your job a little more difficult. Just want you to know how much I appreciate it.

Ah, Brady is a sweetheart. Love to hear when someone takes in a pet, loves it, cares for it and the pet becomes a family member.

Brady Bug knows a beautiful quilt when he see's one! Bless you for rescueing such a wonderful animal - he obviously just needed to be loved AND to be near quilts!

Brady Bud is adorable. Thank goodness to you for bringing him into your home. I love the use of your bright colors, your quilt looks fabulous.
I can just picture Brady trying to snag your quilt as you were stitching. Too funny.
