pets on quilts“>

What a super idea!  Lily Pad Quilting is holding their annual Pets On Quilts contest this month.  Entries can be submitted up until August 17th with voting taking place the following week.

It’s fun to see all the photos of the adorable furbabies out there – and of course to admire the handiwork of all the fantastic quilters.  Even better is the fact that it raises awareness of the Padsworth Project, an initiative that encourages others to complete and donate a bed, pad, or blankie to their local animal shelter.

I’ve got pets and I’ve got quilts so I guess that makes me eligible to join in!  Mind you, there are categories that include virtual quilt designs or quilts with groupings of animals so don’t let the lack of either a pet or an available quilt stop you from participating.

I will be linking up my entries soon.  Won’t you join me?  The deadline is August 17th.
