Quilted Dog Bed for Lily!

Miss Lily is one spoiled dog with her new quilted dog bed!  I could hardly stomach the price on a big dog bed, so I decided to make one myself.  The brilliant idea to use a 27" square pillow form came to me when I found them 50% off at JoAnn's.

I let one of the boys pick any fabric from the stash!  
Lily seems to like it!

For the "other" side {is it the front or the back?}, I used a leftover quilt top that I had made last winter and couldn't figure out what to do with.  I made this quilt top using the Jelly Roll Race! tutorial by the Missouri Star Quilt Co on YouTube.  The tutorial is great, it looked great in the fabrics they were using, but not so much with my mini-dot fabric strips, so the quilt top got stuffed away in the fabric closet.

To make the dog bed more durable, both sides are quilted with batting and backing and then assembled in traditional pillow cover style with an envelope opening, which is bound like a quilt rather than folded edges.

Pillow Stats:  28.5" square on a 27" square pillow form.  This allows room for shrinkage when washed.
