Kennel Quilts for Humane Society


Made a set of small kennel quilts using WeAllSew’s tutorial on the “Sew To Serve Animal Rescue” blog post! This was my first time sewing a kennel quilt. I’d like to improve on my next quilt by figuring out how to keep the fabric from bunching up as you can see in some spots. It was a quick and relatively easy sew. I used scrap fabric for all of the quilt. Cotton on the outside and scrap wool as the interior fabric. I hope this provides some comfort to the animals in need!

    • Getting creative sounds fun and great! There are usually a couple standard sizes for kennels though so if making a quilt, perhaps it would be good to make sure your finished quilt will fit into one of them? I used to have a small dog and when I put in a quilt or cushion that was too big for her kennel, it would take up more room and unfortunately leave her less room to move around in.

      I think making other kinds of pet beds and blankets as you suggested would be a great idea! For example, our local shelter is always looking for pet beds and blankets for smaller animals since the most often donated items are for larger dogs!

  • This is adorable…I recently made several for the local shelter…it was a great opportunity to practice free motion quilting! My skills have improved and the dogs don’t mind my not so perfect product!

    • Thank you moylandavis! I need to also read up more about free motion quilting and how to do it properly on my machine. It was fun letting the machine go “wild” for once, haha! I usually sew garments and don’t get to let the machine do as it pleases. I agree that the dogs won’t mind a not-so-perfect product! They’re such sweet souls 🙂
