Can I tell you how much we love that quilt? In fact, we all argued a little bit about who would get to make it.
Kudos to Denise for designing such a fabulous quilt! (Shhhh, I have a secret – she has a new dog block in 100 Blocks, Volume 4, coming out in November!)
And since we’re on the topic of dogs, I thought it would be fun to tell you what goes on around here. I’m not sure if you know that we here at Quiltmaker share office space with McCalls, Quilters Newsletter, Sew News and Love of Knitting. Yup, we’re one big happy family.
Not only a big happy human family, but a dog lover family as well. On any given day there will be a dog or two, or three coming to work.
In fact, they are such regulars, they make the rounds, visiting and accepting treats from all of us who keep a “dog stash” in our drawers.
Our dogs are often used for photo shoots. This is my boston terrier, Sami, posing on the “Let Sleeping Dogs Lie” quilt. He was SO excited to be here that we could hardly get him to sit still. But our awesome photographer, Mellisa, worked her magic and pulled it off. (Isn’t he so cute?!?!)
Speaking of Mellisa, she’s the biggest dog lover of them all. The sign on her studio door says “Pets Welcome, Humans Must be on Leash”.
