June 26, 2019, is our milestone date of presenting Cuddy’s Pawville Quilt today! This is a very special blog post I’m writing and sharing with you. If you have ever lost your ‘heart dog’ you know what a special gift they are to have known and be a member of your family.
Cuddy’s Pawville Quilt Presentation Today June 26, 2019
I’m sharing several photos from this afternoon’s presentation of Cuddy’s Pawville Quilt to Phil Miller, owner of Pawville along with Alice Prescott and myself.
Alice is an experienced computerized long arm quilter. The process of sandwiching the quilt top with the batting and backing fabric is amazing. The top is of Cuddy’s dog bandanas I sewed using my 1956 Singer Featherweight. There are several digital designs on Cuddy’s Pawville Quilt including dog biscuits, and anchors! The outer border is showing more dog bandanas of various sizes.
The five embroidered squares were all digitized and professionally embroidered by Tom Jones over at Intracoastal Design. Whereas Cuddy’s Pawville Quilt is made up of 8″ x 8″ squares, the other quilt is 12″ x 12″ squares. The same five embroidery designs are on both quilts and sharing his 69 dog bandanas.
With all of the expansion remodeling completed at the Surf City Pawville, the timing has been perfect for now presenting Cuddy’s Pawville Quilt!
I’m including a photo of the quilting label that is on the back of the quilt.
The first mention of creating the memory dog bandana quilts was on November 08, 2015, in my post on Cuddy’s Quilt. And then shortly in less than a week was my November 12, 2015 blog post, Autumn Potpourri.
“There are actually going to be two quilts – one for my family and the other for what was Cuddy’s second home where he loved daycare and to be boarded: Pawville! There is a smaller sized quilt that will be on display there! Ongoing updates on the progress of these two quilts will be posted to a page under construction on Cuddy here at AnchoredScraps.com!”
Furthermore, there will be a summary page I’ll be framing that we will put next to the quilt on the wall.
Our family dog Cuddy came to us through the American Brittany Rescue and we think he was around two years old. When I first began my AnchoredScraps blog I would include a monthly guest blog post written by Cuddy. The hardest blog post I have ever written was on November 3, 2015, “Day by Day” – it was the day after losing him to a very rare cancer.
It is a joy to come full circle today celebrating the joy remembering him.
In case you are wondering about Cooper – he was there too; however, he was playing with his daycare buddies and is at “camp” while the painters have been here. Tomorrow he returns – yes, the painters finished early!
In conclusion, my sincere heartfelt thanks to Tom, Alice, and to Phil for their support of Cuddy’s Pawville Quilt.
P.S. Today is AnchoredScraps daily blog post #1582, we are continuing the trek to 1600!
