Today’s post is a little departure from quilting. Our best girl and hiking buddy sustained a torn ligament while hiking, and she now needs a very expensive surgery to repair it called TPLO.
We’ve had 3 different vet opinions, and they all agree on the same surgery. It’s in the $3000 to $5000 range, depending on vet, any complications that might pop up, and pre-surgery work.
We have a GoFundMe set up if you like to contribute and get Pepper out hiking on the trails again! I have also been destashing quilting fabric on my Instagram account to raise funds (@nwquiltedcat).

Thanks for all your support and words of encouragement! Pepper gives everyone a big doggie hug and kiss.
With summertime schedules, work, and mini quilt swaps on Instagram, I haven’t had a chance to update my blog for a while!
However, today I have a special treat for you! I’m participating in the Pets on Quilts contest sponsored by Lily Pad Quilting.
My entry features my little puppy, Pepper, sitting prettily on my Grand Illusion Mystery quilt. This quilt is designed by the fabulous Bonnie Hunter as her mystery quilt for last year. I’m entering the “Pup on Quilt” category.
In this photo, Pepper is about 10 weeks old. Don’t you just love her cute little ears?!

I made my Grand Illusion Mystery quilt using green scraps from my stash and Moda Grunges for the solids. It is a lap-sized quilt so perfectly sized for cuddling on the couch with a pup or cat!

Enjoy and happy quilting!
