As promised this morning, here is my progress for the day. I managed to get the quilt basted (well, pinned) before 11.30am, so this afternoon after picking up the kids, I got a start on the quilting. I decided to do a cute little something in the setting squares, and meander along in the nine patches. I'm sure when I'm a more experienced quilter I'll do even more adventurous quilting, but for now I'm happy with how I'm progressing.
While basting the quilt, Holly kept scampering across first the backing fabric on the floor, and then the batt, so I'd have to keep on smoothing it out. Then when I placed the top down she ran across repeatedly and skidded around catching it with her claws. It was super cute at first, then less cute, and eventually I had to put her in my bedroom, cuz I just didn't need any more reasons to procrastinate over this quilt!
And here she is helping me out while I quilt ... what a little cutie. She is growing so fast, and is already losing that little kitty face. I guess she's more of an pre-teen kitty now. I suppose she must be around 12 weeks old?
Well, I'm heading back to the machine now - I'll keep on quilting while the inspiration is with me. Have a great day! x o x
