Pets on Quilts

Have you checked out the wonderful Pets on Quilts Parade?  This is such a fun show as people show off their pets, pet quilts and all else.  Be sure to pop over and visit Snoodles and all of the fun links.  You will not be disappointed. 

My entry is in the "other pets" category.  The only pets we currently have are our wonderful tortoises.  They are really more like "half" pets since they sleep all winter.  ;-}

Please meet Joshua and Sagura on my Civil War mini quilt.

Joshua and Sagura looks very comfortable munching flowers on your mini quilt....better flowers than the quilt! You had 10 day with that beautiful dog and no photos of him on a quilt?????

Mary, your family pictures are always a joy to look at....I know you enjoy them so much. The granny square quilt is so pretty....has a little "water color" look to it...And now the tortoises have given us another look at your fabulous Civil War Mini. I'll be sure to go and vote for you on August 9!

LOL!!! Love this "okay now don't run away now guys..."

Vicki said...

Love your tortoises, they are so cute.

Gene Black said...

Ha ha... I am sure the tortoises were easier to corral than some of the cats I have seen in this tour.

What a terrific turtle- my teaching assistant has one named Shelly that she has had for many years- She loves wearing turtle jewellery too.
Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving such a nice comment.I hope you will come and visit again.
Your mini quilt is very pretty.

Tortoises! They look great on a quilt, are they high maintenance as pets?

Maria said...

Your tortoises sure are different "Pets on Quilts"...LOL

Vroomans' Quilts said...

Well at least your models will stay put for a photo.

Marcia W. said...

Tortoises must be perfect pets for taking photos of quilts outside on windy days! I like your mini quilt.

SpartanBabe said...

Great models! I bet they stayed right where you put them too? :o)

Dana Gaffney said...

Oh that's wonderful, tortoises make such wonderful pets.

Joanna said...

I guess that proves that quilts are appreciated by every species. Very cute pic.

Jillsknit said...

Pets on Quilts has turned out to be such a great way to meet other quilters. Love the "models" on yur quilt!

Mina said...

Wow, what kind of treats do you have to give your models so they will stay still long enough (LOL)

Marianne said...

I bet you didn't have to rush to take this picture! LOL

Carrie P. said...

The quilt is wonderful and the models are just perfect. A pet is a pet no matter what.

Mimi said...

I'll bet you didn't have to rush with your photo shoot! Great models and beautiful mini quilt1

Teje said...

Hi! Your quilt is beautiful and wow, turtles, that's exiting! We have special protected turtles "Careta Careta' here in Crete. Your shadow dog is also so beautiful! I think he was worried that perhaps you leave, too.

Jenniffier said...

What an interesting pet. They look happy on the quilt :)

Sandra Wyman said...

Very handsome tortoises! And thanks for your comment on Django!

Kruse Kats said...

Do they say cheese or worms?

JustPam said...

I love your turtles on the quilt. Do they live in an aquarium? Your family vacation looks wonderful. I am encouraged to read about your long marriage. My daughter married young-she just turned 18 and has been married 4 years.

JLVerde said...

The "other pets" category is really the best. Cats and dogs are fabulous but tortoises? Yeah, they're special.

(the quilt is great too, but the tortoises really stole the show for me)

Ingeborg´s Lotta said...

Oh, these are just so cute on the civil war quilt! The colors match very well.

P.s I´m also struggling with the JT2 blocks..I´m very much behind :)

Bente-I like to QuiltBlog said...

Rebeckah Austin said...

Awww :)

Sarcastic Quilter said...

Archie the wonder dog said...

They look right at home!

Christine M said...

I don't think I've ever seen a tortoise, let alone two, on a quilt before! Very cute.

Jenn said...

This is first for me too! I've never seen a tortoise on a quilt. So cool!

Amanda said...

tortoises! That's awesome. They look large...but how big are they?

Mhairi said...

At least they wouldn't run off the quilt. Love this photo, thanks for sharing.

Foolish Feathers said...

Whata fun couple of pets! My husband asked if I wanted to put our 30 gallon fish tank on a quilt or I could "put it on the top of the tank and just flip the picture over..."lol.

Colleen said...

Aw! I love them! And the flowers!

Denise in PA said...

How sweet they are! I love that they "posed" on the quilt - a very original entry!

Sinta Renee said...

Oh my gosh... I was going to write how much I love your Takes 2 blocks... and how applique just seems to be a matter of practice... but then I scrolled down and saw these guys! I love them! Thanks for the smile... I hope you win!
