Sadie's doctor has many dogs of her own and asked me to make a few dog beds for the crates. I followed instructions by Vicki Welsh at Field Trips in Fiber.
DOG BED TUTORIAL
Chop up leftover batting into 2 inch-ish pieces. Use the back side of your cutting mat so you don't trash the good side. It's not like you need the lines to do this.
Make a form about the size you want for the crate, PLUS three inches (to allow for the finished depth of the filling). Sew channels in the form. Make sure they are large enough to generously fit your fist & arm. Stuff with chopped up batting. I made divisions of 3 x 3 pillow sections.
Sew up pillow sections to close.
Now that I have that Bunny Hill UFO finished I have something positive, I mean NEGATIVE to report.

Today I collected a dozen little 9-patches leftover from a 2011 project and will start making up blocks with them to be used in a donation quilt. Probably for chemo patients, since the Caledonia guild is having a challenge for that project. Stitching on that will happen in between my little explosions of RAIN DANCE. Everything here is so dry, the grass is gold and crusty like it normally is in late July. Poor DH is repairing hoses and replacing nozzles every few days, it seems. When I harvest my first batch of snow peas tomorrow I know it will all be worth it.
