I am really enjoying this. I keep checking in to see the latest. I shouldn't admit this, but normally in these shows I just pop in, look and leave. This show has me reading every word and the pictures certainly make you smile. Thanks.

Barb said...

Oh wow....I am going to come by tomorrow when I have time and look at all the entries....this should be so fun.

LuAnn Kessi said...

Nancy Sue said...

This is awesome :) Thank you for all your hard work and logistics you needed to organize as we can sit back with our cuppa tea or joe and have a quilt show in our own home! Thank you!

I am really enjoying seeing the cute pets and the lovely quilts, what a great idea!

Lisa at Sun Naturals said...

Got my entry in...thanks for putting this together...can't wait to see all the others! Not everyone has an embroidery machine, but I do, so should I win something I can give the Sulky stuff a home...or any of the goodies from these generous sponsors!http://sunnaturalsandgifts.blogspot.com/2010/08/my-pets-on-quilts-show-entry.html

Nanbon44 said...

I have my entry in, hope everyone likes my little pets on my quilt. Thank you Darlene, I had so much fun putting this little presentation together and I get to share my favorite things, my dogs and my quilts. So what will be the next one, flowers on a quilt?? More of my favorites and would be a great spring contest. Thanks again for all you do for your readers. I also put mention on Nanbon's Corner blog but my entry is on Southern Style blog at nanbon44.blogspot.com

Barbara said...

Great Idea! Just posted my entry. I'd like to add your button to my blog, but can't figure out how to do it. If you'll tell me how, I'll add it. Thanks!

Karen S said...

I was waiting for Mr Linky to resolve himself -- but I wanted to post this. Thanks, Darlene -- this is the best! I can't wait to see all the entries!

Cindy said...

I'll be back...for sure. I LOVE that you're doing this, Darlene. Many thanks for all that you do.

Nanbon44 said...

I am having a great time just looking at all the wonderful quilts and pets and it was fun posting my pets


Monica said...

This is going to be fun! My favourite things - cats and quilts! Thanks for hosting this fabulous show. I am sure it was tons and tons of work and I really appreciate it.

Unknown said...

Wow! The quilts and pets are fabulous! Thanks so much for hosting Pets on Quilts Show--I just spent over an hour looking at them. You all have inspired me with new ideas, including setting up a blog. I can't do that right now because we are moving but as soon as I get settled in my new sewing room, I'll get to work on it. One question though, when I clicked on my own there is no picture. Any idea why?

SheilaC said...

I am Loving all the great pics!! Thanks so much for hosting this show!


Sherry said...

Thanks for hosting this wonderful show. I can't to check out all the entries.

Hilde said...

Dear Darlene,
You are doing a fantastic job by bringing fellow quilters together and give them a spot to show of their beloved furry pets.
My Spetter just loves all the attention from all the viewers!
Thanks for all your work!

Dee said...

I'm having a great time checking out all the entries. There are some pretty quilts and adorable pets out there!

SheilaC said...

Okay, I am back!! I didn't know we were supposed to make a "wish list" for prizes!!

#9, #6, or any of the batting or charms.

I already voted and posted on my blog!

we are having fun now!!


Jay said...

Jack is always so ( sew) helpful when I'm quilting and likes to smiffmthe fabric, be covered up and kept cozy with partial blocks, and always reminds me when it's time for a petting break.

Melissa Brown said...

Just entered my post, featuring my first time quilting a blanket for my dog, Millie! I was so happy to participate. I am loving all of the entries! Glad to know I'm not the only quilter who loves dogs and other pets.

Talin's Corner said...

I have been away for a week and was happy to see all the quilts that have been entered so far. This has been fun, thanks for hosting.

Janet said...

I've posted my entry. Please let me know if I've done it right. I've been excited about this contest. I have a quilt with pets on it that I am making but it's not quite done (the top that is). If I get it done in the next week can I enter it? I wasn't clear whether there was only one entry each or not. Also can I enter it if just the top is done? Or does it have to be finished? Thanks for having this fun contest.

The Vegetarian Hunter said...

Thank you so much for your help! I didn't know where to change my settings for the email. I am not too computer savvy! Your directions were perfect!

I am glad you liked my quilt, it was a real labour of love cutting out all those little peiced to applique the dog's (Lucky) spots!

Nina Marie said...

Oh this is fun and I'm so glad to see everyone's entries!! I would love to win batting, or especially the sulky thread. It would be a huge help in my work here!!

QuiltSue said...

Whoops, I was almost too late. I thought I wouldn't enter as I didn't have any quilts on the theme. Then, look what I found in my photos, 2 quilts made in 2006 which I had completely forgotten. If I should be lucky enough to win anything, I would love to win no 5, or the rainy cat patterns or the wadding.

Diane H said...

Wow, I just looked at QuiltSue's Entry #63!! I'm so glad so many have entered such a fun event.

Karen M said...

This has been such a fun project. I really enjoy seeing everyone's work, and hearing their stories.

Kim said...

I've been checking out everyone's entries. They are all so pretty.

Unknown said...

This a great show! Thanks for hosting this! I think there are many quilters who are animal lovers or animal lovers who are quilters! This has been fun!

Kim said...

Wow! Everyone's entries are so wonderful. I commented on 66 entries. Great show Darlene.

QuiltSue said...

Please ignore my comment from earlier on how many quilts I've seen and commented on, it's now 66 including my own at QuiltTimes or 65, excluding that.

Kim said...

Oh yeah, there's 66 entries including mine, so can't really comment on my own ;D

Nanbon44 said...

Darlene, thanks for another great contest, I visited each and everyone and left comments for them all. I just wish we could have voted for more then one in each catagory, it was so hard deciding who to vote for.
