Love These!!

A friend of mine emailed me yesterday with photos of her hairless kitty. Love these!

The caption read, "I need a machine with more head room!"


Thought I'd share a photo of the back of a recent quilt. I would love this as a wholecloth for my own bed and then decorate with whatever fabric lines and topper patterns I wanted regularly.
One more thing I love is this blog! Jill takes quilting to another level for me. Jill's work is amazing and I do believe she is a true quilt artist! Take your time while there and scroll through older post...seriously amazing work here! Heck, tell her I sent you.
Also I know so many of you are after the Accuquilt GO! and so here is another opportunity for you to enter at Ariane's blog with no hoops!
I'll see you here Friday for the Fall into Fall Giveaway post.

That is so funny. I could use some of those, I am so sick of vacuuming, lol. Love your quilting, hope I can get more time in to practice my free motion, but won't be getting out of my chair today.

I really enjoy Jill's blog too! Me and a friend are going to be trying her fabric dying technique soon.

The wrinkles on the kitty's head look like quilting lines. A quilter sees quilting inspiration everywhere.

I was wondering where all this extra traffic was coming from LOL

I guess we are members of the same Mutual Admiration Society

Hi! We are finally moved into another home this time in CO (Ft. Carson). I practically took the summer off just to catch up on unpacking and reaquainting with the DH! Hope all has been well for you! Love your quilting projects!

Very cute post. While your friends cat is certainly qualified to test quilts, I think it also needs to become a consultant for sewing machine manufacturers (e.g. make sure there is plenty of headroom). LOL!

Thanks for the pics! Adorable!

Jeni said...

The cat looks Evil

Quilts And Pieces said...

Well I"m so glad to see your wholecloth. I"ve often thought about doing that when I wanted to display/use a quilt on my bed that wasn't quite big enough to cover it. So I guess that wasn't a stupid idea! I never asked anyone to quilt one for me because I thought maybe I was crazy!

The Tile Lady said...

Adorable photos!

Janet said...

The cat is under the sun lamp, lol.
There's nothing wrong with a wholecloth, its all about the fabric.

Bari Jo said...

I love how the back of that quilt looks! Is that what an edge to edge design looks like finished? :O) (Hi Mary! This is Bari!) Your work is just amazing!!!!! Have a great day!

Wendy said...

Cats and quilting just go together, I bet that cat love to snuggle. I just bought that quilt pattern at Innovations, I haven't tried it yet but I fell in love with the design.

Stitched With Prayer said...

Mary, Such a wonderful picture and the caption was perfect! Such a cute cat and it definitely does look like it needs a little more head room, LOL. I love the spool blocks from your previous post. The design is so cute and I really like the fabics you are using. Hugs...

Millie said...

Mary, first I thought it was a small little dog with huge ears. With the second picture I could see it is a cat! LOL
That panto will make a pretty wholecloth quilt.

The little kitty kinda looks like a Gremlin with head stuck in there!

Carrie P. said...

I think that kitty is just trying to stay warm by the light. Cute.
Oh pretty quilting.
