Pets On Quilts Show 2014

 


It's time to flaunt those Pets on Quilts! Lily Pad Quilting is sponsoring the annual Pets on Quilts Show. It's always fun to see those pets giving some furry love to our gorgeous quilts. We all know that fur adds a great textural element to all of our wonderful projects. There are 6 different categories but my category is definitely cat on a quilt!

 

My cat, Lily, loves adding her own spin to my quilts. Here she is hanging out on Basket Case. I think she likes my quilting! She enjoys rubbing herself on the quilt. She knows she's helping me! As soon as I lay my quilt down, Lily comes running and plays with the edges of the quilt.



She lays down and rests for a little while. She know she's chosen a soft and warm place for herself!


I'm not sure why but she always ends up under the quilt! I think she gets extra warm in there! She'll sleep for hours under any quilt I lay down in the family room. Maybe I'll try that the next time I have trouble sleeping. It sure seems to work for Lily!

Hope you get a chance to visit the quilt show! I'll be linking up to Lily Pad Quilting. Go take a look and enjoy!

    1. I don't think Lily likes the air conditioning so that may be why she likes being under the quilt!

  16. Lily is such a great helper. Don't you know she's testing the back of the quilt too? My cat does the very same thing! I made my cat the exact same quilt in flannel. I cut the flannel with pinking shears. She loves to tug on the frayed edges when she sits on it. Best of luck to you and Lily.
