A couple of years ago, a fellow quilter told me of a person who made dog beds by filling canvas "bags" with sewing trash: pieces of fabric, yarn ends, batting scraps, etc. At the time it seemed a bit preposterous, it would take way too long to fill a bag. But recently it occurred to me that I might actually be able to do the same so I tried. With the help of friends and, especially, fellow participants at quilt retreats, it actually didn't take long to make the first one. As soon as I placed it on the floor in my sewing room, Jesse jumped on it and lay down. He sure knew it was a dog bed and immediately claimed it for his own.
