First up is the White Dog Army Quilt- this quilt was a labor of love, as it was commissioned right around the time of the Fearless Five fire in Texas. The mom of the WDA graciously allowed that quilt to take precedence and the WDA quilt came to life in February of 2012. Miss Sue sent WHN photos of the five WDA (There are now six WDA pack members!) and WHN and Dad went to work- searching for the perfect fabrics to match the inspirational photographs. The final quilt consisted of six portrait panels- five American Eskimo portraits and a representation of the world with the words, Dona Nobis Pacem machine quilted onto it. The main panel was then machine embroidered with five Eskimo dogs, one for each of these darlings, who are our bestest friends in the world!
Next up is the tapestry/quilt that was commissioned by the Mayor of Blogville, Frankie, of his cussin, Sarge, the Chief of Police in Blogville. Sarge is one tough hombre and it shows in his quilt. The inspiration was the header photo from his blog, and it truly does look like Sarge!
Then we have the Amber Da Weenie quilted placemat line- representing this line we have two placemats commissioned by Ruthie of K9 Katastophie- of Meemoo and Brodie. MeeMoo left us for the Rainbow Bridge this year and she is sorely missed but her placemat has been a great reminder for her peeps of her beauty. MeeMoo's quilt was a Christmas gift and Brodie's quilt was a Mother's Day gift.
Following the Amber Da Weenie quilted placemat entries is the project that started it all- the Mayor Frankie Furter Price quilt! WHN created this yellow and black quilt based upon a caricature portrait of His Honor, as a thank you to the Price family for their kindness when Dad was first laid off. She never expected the quilt to be so popular that she would be commissioned to make matching placemats for Frankie's Mom for Christmas, or the commission for the Sarge tapestry! WHN made matching pillows of both Frankie and Ernie, his little brother, to go with the placemats! THEN the Mayor himself commissioned a quilt of his lovely brides, Ruby and Penny! This blue quilt , three of the quilted placemats, and the two pillows are in the photo WHN likes to call- Where's Frankie? (Frankie's yellow quilt is now in Canada- a Christmas gift for his wives!)
The final quilt representation is a red and black quilt which was commissioned by the blogger extraordinaire behind two of our favorite blogs, Dakota's Den and Cody's Cat Chat. This red and black quilt is of two Mikis, a relatively new breed of dog and was a wedding gift for her step daughter. The subjects of the quilt are posing with the quilt in the picture.
As Blogville knows, WHN has also made other quilts in memory of those who have gone to the Rainbow Bridge- With the exception of MeeMoo, WHN chose not to show these items for the purpose of entering a contest. (MeeMoo's quilt was made as a Christmas gift and long before she crossed the Rainbow Bridge, which is why it is included here)
We hope that you enjoy these quilts and take time to vote!
