In January 2011 my hubby and I decided (rather I had the brainy idea) to purchase two Shih Tzu puppies. How much fun they would be and they could keep us company in our Studio as he played his guitar and I quilted (WHAT WORLD WAS I IN?) We were wintering in Arizona when I made that decision and I had entered quilts in the Tucson Show. While shopping at the Show, I came across the most precious fabric for dogs and just had to have it to welcome the new "babies" into the family..... We arrived back in Texas at the end of January and I started on the quilt. Then on 21 Feb 2011 we picked up the puppies and within 20 days they were returned to the Breeder... Wrong Breeder. The puppies had numerous problems - we were blessed to get our money back.
You can tell now why the name of the quilt is "Doggie Gone"... The quilt has a new home in New Zeland with my best friend's daughter.
