Quilting & Kitties

Here’s a shot of the quilting I’m doing on the log cabin quilt.  Don’t inspect too close as I’m an amateur but still in all I’m pretty happy with it.

A while back a gray striped cat adopted us and we named her Rail.  Mind we really didn’t want another cat but she needed a home as she was dumped, along with her kittens on our street.  Our neighbors, the husband which is allergic to cats, took a liking to her as she would join them on walks with their dog…..the cat has a lot of dog traits.  Over time they discovered that as long as the husband washed his hands after touching Rail, he didn’t suffer allergic reactions to her.   So a little over a year later, they officially adopted Miss Rail kitty with the understanding we would provide cat sitting services when they are away.  With that set up, here’s a picture of Miss Rail making herself quite at home in our house this week while her parents are away.

This quilt is perfect for napping

She is a cute little thing.  Of course I have to include some gratuitous pictures of the resident cats or suffer the cold shoulder from one or both them.

What quilt block???

I got off the quilt block so she'd better leave me alone!

It' soooo hot!

And I tried auditioning some fabric for alternate blocks for another 9-patch quilt but I’m not loving it.  What do you think?
