Pets On Quilts/Dogs on Quilts

I'm joining Pets on Quilts with a photo of Willow on my Foothill's quilt.
You may be able to tell Willow looks a little uncomfortable posing on this quilt....

...and that's probably because of this hole she chewed into the top...

....and all the way through to the back! :-(

I told my friend Sandi B about this episode and she suggested I applique a heart with Willow's name over it and move on.
 My applique heart says:
This patch is here to cover up
A bit of damage by a teething pup! 

Willow 2018
Fortunately, I had lots of the backing fabric left over and the patch on the back isn't too noticeable. 

I think this guilty face shows that she knows what that patch is all about! 

When the quilt is folded up and put away, Willow is much happier!
 And I can't stay mad at that sweet face!

  1. Willow looks so cute on that beautiful quilt! You must have been so upset to find the holes. You did a good job repairing it though.

  2. Poor Willow! She looks so cute on the quilt but knows she's done a naughty thing!!! I've had a few of those, my Missy pawed a hole in my big bed quilt and recently my new dog Blue has been hauling my quilted mariner's compass throw pillow outside and chewing on it. Alas we love them anyway!

  6. Great idea for the cover-up and cutest photos! Willow is probably a budding quilt designer, she thought the quilt needed something special to be perfect ;))

  9. That is a great way to mend your quilt. Hope it doesn't have to happen again, though.

  11. Willow, those quilts are for snuggling...not snacking ;-) You are such a cutie though I can see why your mom can't stay mad. She did a great job fixing it and now it has your love on it!

  12. Oh no! Was my first thought but what a clever way of patching your quilt! Even though it is heartbreaking at the time, it will become a sweet memory of Willow. She sure is cute!

  13. Oh, no! But it seems you came up with the perfect solution. Willow just added her chapter to the story of your quilt. Woof, woof.

  17. That Quilt will always be special for being Willows Quilt. I am sure you could actually give it to her for her to sleep on now that she has made it her own!!! Hugs, Susie & Treacle

  20. Willow looks adorable on your quilt! Sorry to hear a about the chewing damage done. What a remarkable save creating those patches. The heart on the front is very sweet and the patch on the back is a perfect match - like it never even happened.

  21. Yep, she knew she did wrong, but just couldn't help herself. Your last picture of Willow posing looks just like my Santa's Helper quilt - both just ooze cuteness!
