2013 Pets on Quilts Show - Dear Jane and Selma


It's time for the annual Pets on Quilts show!!  I love this one! 



Selma would like to show you the current state of my Dear Jane assembly.

Lookee!



Two more spacer strips and then I can attach the triangle borders and the scallop edging strips.




Truth be told, she doesn't like this one. Normally I have to keep them off quilts, but this time . . . we had to coax and beg and wait for the CATTITUDE to give way! What a riot.



A lot of patience, a 3-person photo-op team - and we finally got the sweet faces we usually see when one of the felines sneaks onto a quilt-in-progress laid out on the floor.  :D

Your Dear Jane is incredible. I think your kitty just appreciates all the hours you've spent on it, so didn't want to hurt it!

Your four legged kids are absolutely beautiful, as is your Dear Jane quilt. Seriously they should all be a centerfold in a quilt magazine!

I love your dear jane it's beautiful as is your kitty

Phantom-Rose said...

That has got to be the most beautiful calico kitty I have ever seen! Just gorgeous! Don't know what it is about cats & quilts but I always have at least one of my 5 spread out on whatever project I'm working on & no one better DARE try to make them move! LOL! Your Selma sure looks comfy & her multicolored fur motif compliments that of your quilt. Like attracts like, I guess! :)
