The next row down is Max the fat cat. we once babysat him while the inlaws went to FL to look at a house to buy. after he swallowed some string, we had to make the call to the vet to have it surgically removed......$400 later ...... Max got us in hot water that year!
You can also see the tear to the right in the border. this is why I have this quilt-to repair it. It is ripped not on a seam so I will quilt it down and try and applique maybe flowers or pussy willows on it. those are her favorite Spring flower.
As a matter of fact, as I was making it, my nieces who were small then wanted to make their own "life quilt". I have their drawings and squares replicated in fabric and now that most of them are 18 or older I will finish them and give to them to have. It is fun to look back at the guinea pig block or the beta fish named "Wings" block. One had a picture of me and her and she was wearing a tee shirt that said "girls rule". Yes they do! another had a pair of roller skates to represent her love at the time. There are 4 of these quilts and that reminds me- FOUR MORE UFOs to put on the list to finish!
