Quilting ... quilting ... quilting ...

The wandering giraffes are quilted.
 
The star blocks and sashing is done.
 
Butterfly has been very helpful.
 
Each giraffe is different.
At this point, I have named them all.
This is Specks.

The Paw is stalking Specks.
 
The Cat is saying,
"You are not planning to quilt this right now, are you?  Think again."

Corner quilting.
 
 The Cat prefers fresh quilts for napping.
 
I am really going to have to "de-fur" this baby quilt before I send it home.

Despite the frequent cat naps, I have the center of the quilt done and two borders and one corner. I need to get this in the mail by Saturday so the baby grandma may deliver it for Mother's Day.
 

Good kitty!
Butterfly is napping on the old utility quilt in the window.

Butterfly is enjoying the fun at

Feline Friday

where quilty kitties love to party.
 
 
Time to get-r-done!

  4. The Paw knows a good quilt design when it sees one. Giraffes are my #2 fav animal...you can guess #1! I hope you got your quilt done in time!
