Pets on Quilts Show Entry – Some Love for Corgis

Here are my photos for the Pets on Quilts Show – 2011!  (Can you tell I love Corgis?)Finished Daisy Quilt RevealedMy love for the Pembroke Welsh Corgi Breed began several years ago at an Invitational Show Jumping horse event in Tampa when I spotted this cute little dog rolling around in the dirt ringside and was dying to find out what breed it was.

Five years later we ended up acquiring our very first dog, Bernie.  We now have three corgis total, two Pembrokes and a Cardigan Welsh Corgi named Byron that appears in the quilt photos.  Byron was a puppy when I began my quilting experience and has grown along with me in this fun journey!  He loves inspecting all the packages that come into the house, finding scraps on the floor, stealing boxes and testing out quilts before they go to their homes.

 So that they don’t feel left out (I couldn’t find a photo with them on a quilt) here are my Pembroke Welsh Corgis:
Basil is my three year old tri-color PWC.  He is trained for competition agility but had to retire earlier this year due to an ongoing knee issue so we can’t compete anymore.  He loves sitting right under my sewing table and blocking access to the foot pedal.  
He is afraid of his own shadow, hates thunderstorms and thinks I’m the best person in the whole world so he sticks to me like glue whenever I’m home.  He also loves swimming as long as I’m in the pool for him to swim back to once he’s retrieved his toy.  Such a lover this little guy is!

Bernie - Corgi Backyard PlayBernie is my very first PWC and she’s quite the spitfire.  The first year was trial by fire as we had to catch up to her smart little brain.  She was also trained up to competition level agility but had to be retired early due to a shoulder injury.  She’s much happier being on Ottoman Guard as that is her favorite spot in the whole house.  She’s five years old this month.   We nearly lost her a few years ago due to a bladder stone removal that went badly so we are very thankful to still have her with us.  
Byron - Corgi Backyard PlayAnd of course – Mr. Byron!  He is our goofy Cardigan and just loves life.  He just turned a year old this month and still acts very much like a puppy.

I have to keep an eye on him because he loves stealing out of trash cans and really loves my test quilt sandwiches to chew on if he happens to find one that made its way to the floor.  I call him the shark!



  1. Great pictures! We have a corgi/mix/mutt named Brick. He is almost 16 years old!!

  2. What a house full! Just love the clan. Thank you for sharing your four legged pals with us.

  3. So your dogs like the test samples too… I can buy all kinds of toys but they prefer the test sample from my sewing room.. should patient them and sell them….

    Love the corgis and the wall hanging are great, where did you get the pattern for the dog…

  4. Basil, Bernie and Byron are beautiful dogs, and your quilts of the breed are lovely.

  5. Beautiful quilts and love the faces on your neat dogs! They are so cute.

  6. Oh sweet! I love Corgis. And I really like those Corgi quilts. If I ever had time, energy & gumption I'd do something similar with JRT photos or silhouettes.

  25. I've never seen a tri-color Corgie! How lovely they all are!

  26. Your Corgis are all so cute and I really enjoyed reading the little snippets about each of them. Oh, I came here for the quilts! Nice work and you give me hope that someday mine will be as nice. Still working on my first one right now!

  27. Those are so darling – they all look happy and like they are smiling! No wonder you have made all the projects with your furbabies on them!

  28. I LOVE your photos, oh that one of Bernie is just awesome! I love all your corgis quilts, my fav is the first one with the palm trees. Great post, thank you for sharing these pictures!

  32. Your Corgi's are cute, the quilt ones too!

  33. I LOVE Corgies and want to make one my next dog (once my dog-hating cat passes on (not to soon I hope!)

  34. Hello! Oh your sweet dogs look so beautiful and I love their happy faces! I love also their colours – I have had both colour collies (golden and grey)!
    Your quilts are wonderful!

  35. Love your corgis and quilts.

  36. Oh my your dogs are adorable!

  37. Love the Corgi quilt! Every time I quilt or anyone covers up with a quilt in our house, our little Tri-colored Corgi has to get in on it. I want to make him a quilt of his own, but big enough for him to share with a person. Do you sell your Corgi silhouette pattern? I’d love to use it in Willy’s quilt.
