Padsworth's Project - and the Pet Show

(If you are looking for our Aurifil giveaway, click here, and then come back to see what Padsworth is up to today!)

Hi everybody!

Padsworth here to ask if you are getting ready for the Pets On Quilts show for 2013?

It'll be here before you know it! In August!

Lots of you Lilypadquilters entered precious pups and cute kitties (and hedgehogs, and horses) in the competition last year, and we are hoping for an even bigger and better show this year!

For those of you that are new here at the Lilypad, the Pets on Quilts Show is all about getting your favorite furry friend to pose for you with a quilt you've made . . .on the quilt, under the quilt, beside the quilt, well, you get the idea!

You can also enter a quilt with an animal or pet theme, if you can't get your furbaby to cooperate with the photo shoot!

We have awesome sponsors, and super prizes are up for grabs. You can vote for People's Choice Awards in several categories, and there are random prize drawings, too.

New this year is the addition of the Padsworth Project -- an effort to help dogs and cats be adopted into loving forever homes. We posted a while back about how beds and blankies in the shelters and rescue facilities would help them rest, recuperate, and present themselves better to potential owners. We will be posting some tutorials and resources soon to help you get started -- each time you make a pet bed or blankie and post a picture on the Padsworth's Project page (don't you love alliteration? It just makes my froggie day!) you will receive TWO extra entries into the prize drawings!

We're excited about this project, and we hope that you will help by spreading the word, and by making beds and blankies!

More information on the project soon!



  1. I'm really looking forward to this years show, it was such fun last time around. I'm also busily making blankets and beds for the dogs and cats at Battersea Dogs and cats home here in London and my Guides are also helping.

  2. I've also been looking forward to it!

  3. I can't wait for the Pet Quilt Show - Pets on Quilts! Thanks again for hosting --- We love it! I happen to have very cooperative photogenic puppies! I also am interested in being a sponsor this year again. I haven't been around much (busy with my family and my quilting-working) ---- so I hope I didn't miss the sponsor's post! Enjoy your day!

  4. Bullet is waiting for her close up again this year ;D

  7. We will have to enter this year! My kitties are always on the quilts i am working on or have finished!

  8. I love the idea of Padsworth's Project. You are truly inspiring :)

  9. I will try to remember to get photos of the animals on a quilt. Or maybe I will just make a quilt with animals on it.
