Work In Progress Wednesday - Quilt Fort Cat

I can't believe I'm about to say this but this quilt might actually be in the DONE column by this time next week. 
Sandi Henderson Meadowsweet Quilt
I'm sewing the binding to the front today and things were going great until someone thought the quilt would make a great Kitty Fort.....
Bailey the Sew Fabulous Cat in his quilt fort
I'm sure he'll eventually get bored.....or hungry......or too hot in there.....or feel the need to create havoc and mayhem and abandon his post and then I'll be able to get back to work

I was hoping to get the binding sewn on last night but someone was throwing a going away party for one of my neighbors and I had to abandon my sewing machine for the evening.  At the party I had a very interesting conversation with a new neighbor who I'd never met before.....

Neighbor:  I see you out running every morning.

Me:  I hope I'm motivating you to get out and run too!

Neighbor:  I don't think you understand......I SEE you out there running every morning.....then I sit back down on my sofa with my cup of coffee.

Seriously.  Made.  My.  Night.

Happy Sewing,

My cat likes to snuggle into my quilt as I am quilting too, it's very hard to move the quilt with a cat on it! LOL I love the picture of your furbaby!

I really want to get out there and run again too but here in MI the weather is getting yucky and I am about as coordinated as a drunk slinky so I think I might have to use my elliptical until spring - or at least until the threat of snow is over! Your quilt is gorgeous! My dog lays on mine any time its in the area of a floor, bed, sofa, chair, or lap. I can sympathize lol
