That darn cat!

I love the idea of the "Pets on Quilts" quilt show.  I am a HUGE cat lover and without fail, every time I lay out blocks or fabric on the floor, George runs right over and lays on top...cute, but drives you nuts. I don't thinks that I've ever taken a picture of him laying on a quilt and of course, when I tried to take a picture of him on one of my quilts this morning, he refused and ran away.  I decided to "cheat" a bit and covered him with a vintage dresden feed sack pillow and take pictures before he became upset and ran away again! Here's a link to the quilt show!http://lilypadquilting.blogspot.com/2012/08/the-2012-pets-on-quilts-show-is-here.html

  2. George makes a great model and is very handsome. My cat does the same thing when I want to take a picture of her; no cooperation. The dresden plate cover looks beautiful, too.

  3. Cats do have a way of deciding when and where they will put on their own show. George is a lovely cat- reminds me of our Mars Cat - not quite as orange as Mars is.
    Thanks for participating in the blog hop . Congratulations on your new home.

    1. Me, too..I look for them at every estate sale that I go to. I like the one in the picture because of the awesome feed sack fabric and the unusual hand embroidery!
