Cats and Quilts
I've finished the top of my third QOV. Vicki is quilting the first two, and did a fabulous job. You can see the photos on her blog
This quilt is made from Hawaiian fabric donated by Debra and from fabrics from my stash. The pattern is yet another one from Evelyn Sloppy's book Sew One and You're Done. I think I've made four of these quilts now, and there's still at least one more I want to make. It's amazing that I had the exact colors in my stash to go with the focus fabric. When I saw it, I thought I would have to go out and look for the right red to coordinate, but low and behold, I had a large piece of the perfect shade. I've pieced the back of this quilt from the remaining blue fabric, and I'm going to take a deep breath and quilt this one myself. This isn't my favorite part of the process, but I've done it a number of time before.
Louie is again the subject of the cat portion of this post. Recently in a fit of nostalgia I took out some of the kids' dolls from storage and installed them on chairs in the living room. Louie has decided that if he needs a lap, they will do just fine.
Aren't cats experts at getting comfortable and taking it easy? Now that you've seen such a good example, I hope you find a moment to curl up and take a rest.
