Pets on Quilts -- How could I not enter


Lily pad quilting is hosting a fun hop/contest and it combines 2 of the things I love most in the world --- fur babies and quilts. I'm entering for the cats on quilts category. My readers are lucky to get through a post that doesn't have a kitty on a quilt (or multiple kitties on a quilt) and my Instagram followers are not immune to this either. So grab your allergy medicine if you need is and join me in a look back at some of my favorite Pets on Quilts moments. 
Hurley on Garden Window
Hurley and Kahn on City Scape
Kahn helping with the star Wars t-shirt layout
Hurley and Doodle on 3 quilts

Hurley is so happy that City Scape is ready for binding

Hurley and Captain pretending to not be on this quilt (notice the feet are under the quilt)

And few older pictures that I love are pets on quilts made by my great aunt

Thanks for indulging me. 
Hope you enjoyed my kitty photos.

  13. Hurley and Captain appear to be demonstrating the curve of the circle on the quilt while hiding their feet under it. All the cats are cute. Nugget seems the most design oriented helper. :-)
