Beverly's Cat Quilt
Meow! What a great cat quilt! Beverly made this quilt, thought she would get around to quilting it, but never did. She did bind it however. So when I got it, it was all put together, but not quilted. No problem! While I cannot guarantee there will not be any wrinkles on the back when I put it on my frame and quilt it, I certainly am always willing to try. It was a bit dicey around the edges as there was nothing but the binding to hold onto, but not to worry, it all worked out in the end.
I did some curls in the middle, along with some cat tails on one cat in each row. Around the fence border I did some straight stitching. Then in each of the corners I did a cat paw; I was quite happy with the result if I do say so myself! Using a variegated thread (except for the cat paws which I did in a kelly green thread) really tied the whole things together.
Willow is wet!
I like the water...he, he, he!
OK, this is a new one for us. Our previous two Mals didn’t like the water. And when i say “didn’t like” what I really mean is howled like all-get-out when bath time came. Puddles on the street were to be avoided. Rivers? Lakes? No way. But now, our little Willow comes along and absolutely loves the stuff. It doesn’t seem to matter where the water comes from: the hose, the shower, the sky, a stream, a lake….it’s all good.
Guess who is buying a kiddy play pool soon? When the hot weather comes, and even in Oregon it does come eventually, Willow will need a little cold, wet spot of her own in the backyard!

Ann's Baby Quilt
I have no minimum for my longarm business. Sometimes I do tablerunners, sometimes small wall hangings. This baby quilt is just 27″ x 28.” As I build my business, no job is too small! On the other hand, it isn’t cheap to have a small piece quilted; but I’m willing to do it. So if you have some small quilts in your stash that you just haven’t had a chance to finish, give me a jingle, I’d love to help you out and get them finished. Remember “done” is a good word!
