Quilt ADD in therapy

My photo
Colorado, United States
Other than my family, the passion of my life is quilting. An eclectic, I love a wide variety of styles and techniques encompassing both machine and hand work. I am a longarm quilter who can work for you. I enjoy any style, from pantographs to all-over to full custom, ranging from traditional to modern. I love bringing vintage tops to life and am willing to work with a challenging quilt top. Instagram: lyncc_quilts

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

  30. 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! :)
