Pets on Quilts Show - My Kiddos!

SewCalGal is doing a Pets on Quilts Show and I decided to play along by doing a post. Cool, eh?





I have two cats, Mimi and Cory, and many, many cat friends. And, like many cats, they like to help.



 Mimi is a quilt cat. She loves everything about quilts, especially claiming them as hers! She likes to "help" around the sewing table by trying to eat thread and fabric that is on the floor. I've become very good at tidying up to keep her safe!

My other girl, Cory, enjoys the sleeping and destroying part of quilting. Here she is in a big pile of fabric, high as a kite on catnip. Good thing that pile was in the "to be washed" pile - she had fun tossing it around.


 This is Mr. Munchchichi. He decided to burrow a nest into this top that I was piecing together. He looks quite satisfied with himself. He also enjoys a good nap on my quilts and cuddling with my sewing box. He is the child of M, my buddy.

This is Siobhan, another kitty friend and child of my buddy S. She was helping me model these swap blocks.

I guess I don't have a lot of pictures of my cat friends and quilts but the ones I do have a very cute. I will continue to look for the one of my sister's cat Baby who "helped" me "arrange" some blocks once. It is very cute! Hopefully I can find it somewhere.

  1. Gosh you have beautiful cats and quilts too. But I do love seeing Buddy lay claim to the quilts and stretch out her legs to show off her cute white boots (paws), as she claims the quilts.

    Thanks for sharing in the Pets on Quilts Show.
