The 2013 Pets on Quilts Show is open for entries this week - voting next week!

pets on quilts

Jacque at Lily Pad Quilting has officially kicked off the 2013 Pets on Quilts Show.  Entries can be submitted at the show post (click here) thru Saturday, August 17th. Voting for your favorites will be open Sunday, August 18th through Saturday, August 24th.  There are wonderful prizes, donated by very generous sponsors, and many ways to win a prize.  But this show is really all about having fun, showing off our pets, or how much we love pets in general.  Even if you don't have a Pet you can enter.


While SewCalGal is sadly "pet-less", I do so love all sorts of animals.  And, I love EQ7 so I decided to play around with this software to create a whimsical cat design to share with you today.


I call it "Cats playing on the grass at night".  What do you think?

Pop on over and check out all of the super cute and fun entries in the Pets on Quilts Show.  They make me quack up!



While SewCalGal is copyright protected, if you would like a copy of the quilted duck (above) you are welcome to take a copy and use as you wish.  I hope it quacks you up too!

And, I'd love to hear you have an entry in the Pets on Quilts Show this year too!

Sorry to hear that you are petless at the moment. I hope you have sweet ones that you can visit often and call friends :-)
The design cats are kind of nice and yes, the duck definitely quacks me up too. I love this parade!

I think the cats are sweet and look great on that quilt design. The quacky duck is cute, too.

oooooh! I love that kitty graphic, did you make up the kitty or is it on EQ? very cool, I could see it being used in so many ways. thanks for the heads up on the pet show, I look forward to it every year and didn't realize it was here already. I'm off to check it out now :-)

Helloooo ~ Let me introduce myself, I am Sweet William The Scot, and I am taking the tour of the quilts. I am more of a dog blogger, but I have made three quilts in my lifetime. Love the squares where the puddy cats are walking away swishing their tails.
