Cats on my Quilts


 


Sew Cal Gal is having a 2011, Pets on Quilts Show.  I'm joining in.  My fur babies always help me when I am quilting.  And I wouldn't have it any other way.  How else would I know if my quilts are soft and warm and perfect?  Felix loves everything I make.  He just can't get enough of my quilting.  See how eager he is?


Mimi on the other hand is very fussy.  But she loves bright colours.  She is especially helpful when I put my blocks on the floor.  Then she rolls in them and moves them about as she pleases.  The layouts usually look better when she has had her say, than if I just lay them out myself.  Oh, yeah.  I almost forgot.  She also loves to play 'catch my tail' when she is busy helping.  It seems to help her artistic concentration.  Thanks Mimi and Felix!

The picture of Felix made me laugh, he is certainly focused. Mimi is gorgeous, I've always had a soft spot for white cats. Of course, she likes bright colors, they make her look even more beautiful. Thanks.

Dana is right Hetty. The bright colors brings out the color of Mimi's eyes. Gorgeous pictures and fur babies.

I have a tuxedo kitty too - they're so helpful! And Mimi's coat helps show off the beautiful colors of those 9-patches. Thanks for sharing.

What a great idea. I heard that the best quilts are blest by cats and pups. That makes them much more valuable.

Take pictures!

Gorgeous white cat - my furry does the 'tail chase' thing too, but the round and round chase like a dog does.

Felix and Mimi are both gorgeous fur people! Isn't it interesting how cats have color preferences?

Felix and Mimi are very pretty kitties! Mimi seems to be having a ball for sure on those pretty squares!

Your fur babies are adorable, as usual and especially on your layouts and quilts.
I think they also get a high from the materials, the smell,new or old.
So by keeping your hobby going your cats will stay helpful and happy.

Mimi and Felix are gorgeous kitties! Tuxedo next door could be his twin! And Mimi looks like she would be a lot of fun to have around :-) How could we create without our consultants!!

Joanna said...

Two little sweeties - I love those pictures. Both are beautiful cats.

The Vegetarian Hunter said...

Mimi is just so adorable, catch the tail - awesome. Of course I am biased as Mimi looks identical to my Tika kitty. Felix is beautiful to, such a hansome sweet face.

Your cats are beautful. I love the last picture, just so cute.

Thank you for sharing your lovely kitties with me. My dogs will not allow me to have a kitty, so I do enjoy looking at photos of other folks kitty companions.
