Bailey The Sour Puss

Cat on quilt made with Meadowsweet by Sandi Henderson for Michael Miller Fabrics
Over the weekend I FINALLY finished all the ties on my giant living room quilt that I have been working on FOREVER.  Yay - Go me!  And I have guestimated that there are about 1600 ties in that quilt.  1600!!!  I don't know about you but that seems like a lot of ties to me.  And the moment after I finished doing the ties the quilt was promptly claimed by Bailey the Sour Puss.  He looks all pretty and soft and fluffy but that little guy has some serious cattitude!

And thank you so much to everyone for your opinions on the binding color.  I decided to go with the chocolate brown fabric.  I would like to say it was a purely artistic decision because I like the idea that the brown would "frame" the quilt and make it really pop.  But there's also the fact that the pets all love this pouffy, squishy quilt and dark brown will obviously hide stains much better than light green or soft buttery orange.  So practicality won out over looks this time!

And now I need to go distract Bailey with kitty treats so I can steal the quilt back and attach the binding.  It's a dangerous mission but somebodies gotta do it!

Happy Sewing,
