quilts,cats

ok Phoebe you have a quilt............
Remember the one that you "stole"? We were making lap quilts one Christmas for the nursing home and every time Mom put this one in the box you claimed it with your fur. She would take it out, rewash it and put it back only to have you do that again and again. The third time Mom gave in and said "Ok, it is YOURS".
remember?


see here is the front and back..... a pretty pink and green and blue pattern called Lovers knot. Here it just looks kind of like a zig zag.


MY QUILT IS NEXT........YOU ALREADY HAVE ONE!!!!!!!


YEAH  WHATEVER Dunkin! This afgahan is MINE too!  so buzz off! I was here before YOU were!

er, ummmmm kitties! let's not fight! Lord knows I have enough fabric to make every kitty in the world PLUS every one that is about to be born in the next year a quilt. (not that I have time to do that) LOL

Here is what I have been working on. A dresdan runner...... I need to figure out what color for the circle in the center. I only have pieces of the pink and the blue in the stripes section. None of the green. I think the pink but then I am thinking the blue. ideas? maybe something totally different? The muslin? I am thinking of adding strips the width of the ones in the side blocks as a border, then quilting it. again I am torn between the pink and the blue. quilty friends, help!
What would YOU do???

  2. Have fun with your blog and your kitties. My 2 cats, Red and Poipu, are into everything also - but they are such a joy.
