Brrr, isn't it cold? I've grown lots more fur for the Winter but I'm still finding it a bit chilly. In my room, my mum has been sewing nice things again. I saw this quilt the other day and thought it was the perfect size just for me, Charlie Boy.
She seemed a bit cross when she found me asleep on it and I don't know why. What else is it for? She didn't make me get off though as I did my very best to look extra cute and furry and even started purring so she left me to it until I went for dinner.
When I came back, my quilt had gone which I wasn't too chuffed about. Seems my mum had finished it and was faffing around taking lots of silly photos of it in different positions.
She says to tell you it is based on a full size quilt which she saw in Tikki Patchwork, a shop which she loves to visit apparently. This quilt is perfect for a kitty, you know, at just 17.5" square. It was my mum's first go at applique on a quilt. She hasn't given me my quilt back and even worse, she keeps it in this wooden chest! (She came back with it one day from Northcote Road and was "thrilled with its original paint finish" whatever that means.)
With a silly old rabbit! There are lots of other quilts in there too. She thinks she forgot to show you this little log cabin one she made. She says the pattern is in Kathy Tracy's book "Prairie Children and their Quilts". She goes ga-ga over that lady's books.
Lots and lots of little strips, measures 12 3/4" x 17" apparently.
She made this star one, too (based on a quilt in Kathy Tracy's The Civil War Sewing Circle). It's a feline-friendly 18" square.
I can't understand why she makes all those little kitty-sized quilts then puts them in the box with the old rabbit? Never mind because my brother and I have found an even comfier spot on my mum's bed. There's not just a big quilt suitable for two kittys but an eidy too! Purrrrrrrr.
Happy Christmas from the furry friends (including Vorey, but he's off radiator-hugging).
