My friend Kris has two wonderful, well trained Sheltie dogs. They (and she) work with the local library in a program called “Read To Rover”. She and her daughter take the dogs to the local library and various kids come in a read to the dog….how cute is that!!!!
Kris likes to put a quilt down for everyone to sit on while they read. The problem arose that the only quilt she had was one with a lot of texture to it and the dogs couldn’t sit comfortably on it for a long period of time. One in particular would continue to shake his leg and move around throughout the reading time.
The solution…..a new quilt designed just for this purpose…..
I used miscellaneous left-overs and other fabrics for the back…..
The quilting is very utilitarian…..just enough to hold the layers together properly.
I am excited that this quilt can be a part of this great program….may it make for hundreds of hours of introducing kids to the fun of book reading and, of course, comfortable doggie tooshies!!!!
