Meet Miss. Edie Grey, an adorable 1-1/2-year-old cream french bull-dog from Oklahoma. Christopher (The Tattooed Quilter) and Jack acquired her from a breeder and at 8 weeks old, she made her journey from the mid-west to the big apple. She may just be one of the most delightfully adorable pups we’ve ever seen. Edie spends her days lounging on perfect pink chairs, basking in the sunlight, reading the NYTimes style section, brunching with her dads, and talking strolls around her NYC neighborhood.
Fun Facts About Miss. Edie Grey:
- She’s named her after “Little” Edith Beale from Grey Gardens fame.
- Like most french bull dogs, she’s stubborn, loveable, and an all-around clown.
- She loves to snuggle with her humans, especially under a vintage quilt.
- She prefers beef over chicken.
- Apples and the occasional popcorn are her go-to snacks.
- She loves the pool and would take a bath every day if she could.
- She prefers Fall over Summer.
- She has two besties in her human’s apartment building: Eggs and Rosie.
- She’s an Instagram pup-ebrity (pup celebrity) and won’t pose without snacks. (Follow her HERE)
- She’s quite the shopper and anyone who walks her down the block will quickly learn that she knows exactly where the two dog shops are in the neighborhood.

THE FRENCH BULLDOG RESCUE NETWORK
We, like Christopher and so many of you, are dog lovers… pet lovers really. We love helping where we can and were absolutely thrilled to align this collection with the French Bulldog Rescue Network.
“FBRN’s mission is to rescue, rehabilitate and re-home French Bulldogs in need from commercial breeding kennels, import brokers, public shelters, private rescue groups, owners or Good Samaritans. Our organization is comprised solely of volunteers who nurture and foster these dogs as well as provide education and training. Our goal is to place healthy and happy French Bulldogs into forever homes.”
A percentage of sales from this thread collection will be donated to the French Bulldog Rescue Network.
We always love seeing the gorgeous creations that are made with our threads and the coordinating fabric collections. Feast your eyes on these!
