At the beginning of 2015 I made this fun pinwheel quilt from my scraps. When we took off for our summer vacation this year, I threw it in the car, unknowing that it was going to become Jackson's quilt for the entire two weeks!
I caught him using it day...
...and night. I was actually beginning to fear he'd put a hole in it as I watched him "paw in circles and dig" each evening to make his little cocoon shown below. But hey! His nose is warm and we all know with our pups, THAT'S what really matters. LOL!!
Quite honestly though, I'm so grateful for him. Many of you know, he's an enthusiastic regular on my blog and well, he's been my quilty, empty nest buddy now for seven years! He is the most loyal dog I have ever had and in review, I noticed he has shown up in 58 posts thus far. (For as many of you also know, he thinks when I'm taking quilt pictures that I'm really just setting up his photo op.) Seriously! Click here to see Jackson's modeling moments gone by. I can say I've never loved a dog as much as I love him. With that said, he is welcome to make any quilt in the house his own.
Thank you to Lily Pad Quilting for this opportunity to highlight our pets!
This is truly one of the events I look forward to most as I love seeing all our pets gathered in one linky and reading how they too, touch your hearts and make your days better too. I hope you'll join us for this Annual Pets of Quilts event. Click here for the rules. Click here for the linky party. Voting begins August 25th. I entered Jackson in the dog (pup) on quilt category...ya know, just in case you are looking for a cute pup to vote for. Smiles!!
Precious, just precious! You know Jackson gets my vote, hands down. Give him a tummy rub, and Cami too.ReplyDelete
Jackson is just so cute I don't think I could resist letting him fluff up a quit to use for a bed, even though I too would probably worry about the possibility of him creating a hole. I guess the worst case scenario you could add some applique to your beautiful quilt. Maybe a dog bone? Clearly Jackson is loved in his fur-ever home.ReplyDelete
Awww....he is so cute.ReplyDelete
SO glad the issues were resolved and your linky is OK. Jackson is a doll! THanks for joining our show!ReplyDelete

Jackson is such a cutie. I love seeing him in all his rambunctiousness and his quiet contemplative times too.ReplyDelete
Jackson was love at first site for me too. Only wish I could see him in person to see how cute he must be in action.ReplyDelete
Jackson has so much personality it oozes through photos! I am so happy that you are setting up photo ops for him on a regular basis, he deserves it. LOLReplyDelete
Give him a big belly rub for me please.
Jackson is so sweet - and obviously accustomed to being the star of the show :*). They really can help fill our empty hearts when the littles move away can't they?ReplyDelete
Jackson is adorable! I can see he deserves warm quilts to get comfy :-)ReplyDelete
I love it when you get that really strong bond with a dog, he is a sweetie and I love the nest he made for himself with the quilt!ReplyDelete
Beautiful quilt and Jackson is a sweetie!ReplyDelete
Ah, that Jackson! He's PDC (pretty darn cute)!!!ReplyDelete
I love when Jackson makes an appearance on your blog. Quite honestly that quilt looks like it was made just for him, so I can't blame him for claiming it :)ReplyDelete
Jackson is the cutest dog on earth!!!! I love seeing him on the blog - I hope he wins - I'll be voting for him!ReplyDelete
Jackson is pretty adorable--and the boss!ReplyDelete
Lovely dog and for some reason I really like the name 'Jackson' for him. Really suitsReplyDelete
Jackson is for sure a favorite. His cute personality shows. He'll get my vote.ReplyDelete
It seems our pets have conspired to acquire our quilts! I figure if they will love on them this much, then the recipient will surely enjoy it, right?ReplyDelete
Jackson is so gosh darn cute how could you say no to his taking the quilt? :)ReplyDelete
Such a cutie!ReplyDelete
I just love this sweet little guy - would love to visit and give lots of belly rubs.ReplyDelete
Jackson is precious!!!ReplyDelete
So sweet! He looks so comfy in that last photo. I'm glad because in the one above it, he looks just a bit like he's afraid you're going to kick him off or maybe take it away, although he has clearly laid claim to it--and you!!ReplyDelete
Jackson is adorable and has really good taste in quilts. I love the colors and they really highlight how handsome he is :)ReplyDelete
Lovely to meet Jackson for the first time. He is my type of dog, and he has the right idea about quilts.ReplyDelete
Jackson is very cute.ReplyDelete
Oh that look on Jackson's face...I only get the quilt for two weeks? But it's starting to smell just right!ReplyDelete
58 posts with Jackson! I'd say you love your little buddy very much Val. It's so cute how much he loved that quilt.ReplyDelete
He is a cute baby.ReplyDelete
I love Jackson and his little face when he is asleep so cute. Hugs, Susie xReplyDelete
And I thought it was the cats who kneaded and made their beds/ quilts soft and comfy? He is a cutie, and loves his quilt for sure. Cheers, Nancy JReplyDelete
He is such a sweetie -- and I REALLY need to make a quilt for my grand dog. I never realized before what a bad grandma I am! :)ReplyDelete
He is a cutie in his quilt cocoon.ReplyDelete
