Pets on Quilts Parade

People who own pets and try to photograph their quilts on the floor find that pets love the quilts. So, cleverly, Snoodles and Padsworth created a parade to showcase pets.

pets on quiltsIf you are a pet lover,  have a look.

When I heard a grandbaby was due, of course I made a quilt. Shirley, the cat, was quick to stake her claim, though surprisingly she stayed to the edge.

A Star is Born

Because it was made before my grandson was born, and we wanted to be surprised, there is equal pink and blue.  Above is before quilting. Below is after and with back-to-front binding.
