Quilting with a CAT

The moment you say "This Quilt is a Gift" is the moment that things start going wrong. - 

Problem No 1.
I like this fabric, It has Fish
- I like fish, 
therefore it is mine.

Problem No 2.
What do you mean it's for someone else?
I know... I'll eat the pattern then she can't make it!

Problem No 3.
I REALLY need a design wall....

Problem No 4, 5, 6, 7 & 8
These I have no photos for as it was too traumatic... sufficient to say it involved a LOT of Spray Basting, Pin Basting, Quilting, Un -Quilting, repinning and ... you get the idea.

I have lost count of how many times it has been picked up smoothed out stared at only to be quickly shoved back into the bag (I DID mention it was a gift).

I am happy to say it is FINALLY on the machine and I am happy with the way the quilting is going.  It is going to take some time especially with the addition of the Sashiko feature in the small diamonds, and as long as I can keep Spike away from it ... 

She may get it for her NEXT birthday!


  1. Poor you, it sure looks like a pretty quilt. Can't wait to sew it finished. Hugs Bunny

  2. Hahaha I've missed reading about your quilter's cat while I was on holiday. So glad to be able to catch up on all the fun you've had!
