quilts and cats

This morning I finally finished this quilt I started shortly after starting my blog - about 2 years ago-ish now, so it has been through the wash this morning and is hanging out to dry - I prefer the post wash look to the pre-wash (that is code for laziness!!!)

Not my longest quilt, that would be baby figs cot quilt started just after she was born, completed when she was about 8 or 9...years old!

It is quite interesting seeing your work hung up and photographed when it has been only inches from my face during it's construction - I can see bits I want to quilt more, or that could have been slightly different - oh for the space to have my own felt quilt wall - oh well, something else for the old wish list!

Almost everything I do these days is observed by these little baby brothers (who would have believed only 12 months ago I was a cat 'serious disliker'?
Above is Stitch - my little razzer who loves his mummy and fish sticks

And here is the noble and enigmatic Bodkin, who loves his daddy and fish sticks...

It is because of these two little darlings my wool stash has now been re-homed upstairs where no cat may wander!

Oh that's a pretty quilt, it doesn't matter how long it takes you to make something. In fact the longer it takes the more love has gone into it ;)

That's a lovely quilt. I find yellow a difficult colour to work with, but I really like this. Beautiful cats too, :-) Val
