It's that time of year to show off your fur babies. I wasn't going to join in but then I thought why not? It's so fun to see all those adorable pets. The quilt show ends on Aug. 17th so break out your cameras and join in.
This is our cat Duchess. She's the youngest kitty. Our son begged us to keep her when one of his classmates was giving her kittens away many years ago. Even though Duchess is older now, she still acts like a kitten and sometimes we wonder if she's meant to be a cat because she loves to play fetch. Duchess and our other cats love quilts. There's just something about a handmade quilt that draws them to it.
We always have one or two quilts laying around in our family room. This quilt was one I made quite a few years back. I can't remember how long but a long time ago. Back then I usually head to the Thimbleberries fabrics or 30's reproduction prints. I still love 30's prints. The Thimbleberries fabrics I don't use much but I still love them. This quilt is a variation of the traditional log cabin block. It's perfect for the couch to snuggle under on cool crisp nights.
I hope you'll hop on over to the quilt show and check out all the adorable pets.
On another note, I am still accepting participants for the Pretty Pouch Swap. This is going to be so much fun! Hope you can participate. You can see the guidelines here.
