Sitka's Quilt ... Completed!

Ha roo, everypup! It's me - Zim! Wowzers, did you see how much hard work Dave put into (oh... I mean "Dave and Mom put into"...) the quilt for Sitka? How cool! If you'll recall, Mom was about to do all the clipping when Dave ended yesterday's post. She must have some Working Breed in her, because she got it all clipped and into the wash before we could even shed more fur on it!

Here it is, coming out of the dryer. See how the frayed edges are all fluffy?

Here's a close up. Those raised, frayed, fluffy seams are GREAT to roll around on! We all love how they feel rubbing our backs! (We have a quilt like this on our bed!)

I can't wait for Sitka to try it out!

Dad held it up for Mom to get some photos of it. I found it fascinating!

Mesmerizing! And fluffy!

I thought Dave should see it all fluffed out and held up like this!

Hey, Dave! You really did a great job on this! Come on in and see it while Dad's holding it up!

Well, Dave did come in, but rather than standing there admiring it, he said Dad's arms were probably getting tired and I should get out of the way. Me? In the way? That can't be right! Then I saw Stormy coming over to physically remove me (see her back there, sort of behind the quilt?) ...so I thought I should go do something else for a while.

Here's the back - it's all cut up blue jeans!

Mati was really sweet yesterday, and left a comment wondering where Am was! Oh, don't worry, Mati! We had a special request from Sitka and Amber was the perfect Sibe to see to it! See... Sitka asked for a sniffy bag of Ao4 fluff, so she could get a better sense of who we are. And Amber has the thickest, fluffiest, still-blowing-her-coat fur of all of us. :) I knew she wouldn't mind taking a brushing for Sitka! Well... maybe she did mind a little, but since all of us donated a little, too, she gave a couple swipes of the comb worth.

This is enough, isn't it, Mom?

I came in to see if Mom got enough fluff out of Am to fill our sniffy bag. (That's me, behind Amber.) Mom asked if I was volunteering to donate more. I decided to go see what Dave was doing. Amber said I left her holding the bag. Ha roo roo roo. Good one, Am.

Sitka - we all hope you enjoy your new fluffy quilt and your sniffy bag!!!

I'm off to help Mom wrap it up and get it in the mail! Happy quilt, Sitka!!! We hope you, Tia, and your mom and dad like it!

Play bows,

    Nubbin wags,

    Oh my gosh! It is absolutly beautiful!! I sure hope your mom let ALL of you put fur on the quilt before she packed it up, ha roo!! I see a nice sniffy bag there with that quilt. I can practically smell you already. I know my family and I are going to love the quilt for MANY reasons. Just to name a few... We helped Beautiful Xia with Harnessed to Hope Northern Breed Rescue, the quilt was made by my handsome Zimmie's mom (with much assistance from Dave - and the girls) and it is BEAUTIFUL!!!

    I love all of you!!! Hugs,

  6. Oh my dogness! It's spectacluar! It's perfection.......you all did such a wonderful job. I can't wait to see Sitka and Tia snuggled in it.

  7. That is an awesome quilt! I love the frayed edges on it. It looks like the perfect palce to take a nap! Great job!!

  8. That quilt is pawesome! Looks like a LOT of work. But the end result was worth it.

    Zimmy...tell your Dad, better luck next year with those Brownies. Hee Hee!


  9. Ooh, I like the fluffy edges. I bet it feels really nice to roll around on that quilt.

  10. What a talented family you'all are. The quilt looks beautiful. I bet it feels good too! And the extra fluff, that is so cool.

    Your mom is some talented. Wow!

    Husky Hugs, MayaMarie

    Hi all of you all, thank you for saying hi to me in my blog. This blog thing is lots of fun!


  12. You all did a great job....although I don't think Amber thinks too much of the brushing thing....

    Woo woo, Kelsey Ann

  13. That's a really beautiful quilt and you all contributed great help in making in pawfect for Sitka. :)

  14. Woohoo, that is bewootiful, Dave. You and your mom make a grrrreat team!
    Bama & the RHP

  15. Oh Zimmy! It's so nice to see Am!! (Between you and me, I think Rockstar is a little smitten with Am!) But great to hear she is good (and thanks for responding too!)

    Your Mom's quilt look beauuuutiful. The frayed edges look somewhat familiar....??? oh, I know! The frayed edges are like ME when I do a Husky-Don King impersonation! But a lot softer I'm sure. I agree with Mapaw and Lady Kaos - I bet you just want to roll around and take a nap. It sure does look comfy!

    Thanks again for asking Am to come into the picture. Love Mati

  16. Very nice!

    Zim, you and Amber look wary of the brush. Don't you like it either?

  17. oooooh Zim, that quilt is amazing, totally and utterly amazing!

    And I love the photos of you too, so handsome!

    love and licks, your friend Marvin xxxxxxxx

  18. Hi-Woo All,
    That quilt is bewootiful - truly amazing work!!

  19. Ginger: Thank roo! We hope so!
    Stormy's test run was a success! She said it was very comfy! Ha roo roo roo!

    Holly: We HAVE to send Sitka a sniffy bag! We just HAVE to! We're glad you like your quilt, Hol!

    Maggie & Mitch: Thank roo! You're so very kind!

    Ruby Bleu: Thank roo! We hope Sitka loves it!

    SITKA! My bee-roo-tiful friend! We're SO glad you like it! And you'll like the sniffy bag, too! Dave said after you sniff our bag-o-fur, you should sprinkly it all over your living room. It'll be just like we've been there! Ha rooo!
    Helping HTHNBR raise money for Xia is what it was all about! THANK YOU for your generous donation!!!

    Echo: Thank roo! I can't wait, either!!!

    Kaos: Thank roo! We love this kind of quilt - they're so snuggly and comfy!

    Lola: Thank roo! Ha roo roo roo - Dad laughed when he read your comment. And he LIKES your aunt's outfit! :)

    Magnum: The quilt is like an automatic back rubby-dubby machine when you roll around on it!

    MayaMarie: Thank roo! Mom couldn't do this without our help! She tells us that all the time!

    Maddox: Great to see you here! Welcome to the blogosphere! :)

    Kelsey Ann: Thank roo! And Amber was NOT too happy ... but she took one for Sitka! HA roo roo roo!

    GG: Thanx! We all do our own part!

    Bama: Thank roo, little pup-pal!

    Mati: You were so sweet to ask about Am! She was touched and said, "Oh, Mati is as sweet as ROCKY!" And she said "ROCKY" in that special voice of hers. Hmm. Not sure what that means. That "smitten" thing might apply to her, too!
    "Don King"!??! Ha roo roo roo! Good one! We call that "putting our Mohawk on". :)
    Thanks for the kind woos on the quilt!

    Tucker: Thanx! Oh, the brush? As Ammy says, "Brushes are EVIL!" HA rooooo! Really!

    Cosi: Thank roooooo!

    Play bows all!

  20. The quilt looks great! Good job Dave and Dave's mom! Also, it was really nice of Amber to donate a lot of fur. I don't know if I would have been so nice. I do NOT like to be brushed. Maybe for Sitka, I could handle it though. She is a sweet friend.


  21. We love that quilt! It is gorgeous and we're sure the Sitka will love it! :)

  22. Kat: Amber said knowing it was for Sitka made it tolerable. Otherwise, she would have hidden in her secret hiding place under the dining room table.

    Amici: Thank roo! We all worked hard on it!

    Play bows,

  23. That's a beautiful quilt! Your mom should start a business!
