Cats on Quilts

Lilly Pad Quilting is having a linky party for pets on quilts here , so you know I had to join in!
Here is one of my favorite pictures of Muffin snuggling in my grandmother's quilt.

Of course Pippi's favorite spot is on top of the quilt rack!

Tiger likes to help me quilt.  It is really hard to slide the quilt through the machine when a 15 lb cat is laying on it!

Pippi likes to help me sew the quilt pieces together!

Tiger and Muffin are enjoying my thrift store quilt in these pictures!


Tiger is posing in front of my grandmother's other quilt here.

I know this last picture is a blanket and not a quilt, but it was so cute I had to include it!

I actually have a lot more pictures on my laptop which decided to die, so I had to steal these from other blog posts and facebook!  My youngest three really love quilts and as soon as I pull a quilt out, they are on it! If you want some great ideas for "catty" quilt patterns, I have some on  pinterest! I can guarantee I'll have a lot more when this linky party is done!  I almost forgot to mention there is a contest going on and Muffin, Tiger and Pippi hope you will vote for them!  The voting starts August 9 or 10 after all of the entries have been received.
I'm also going to link up to Sarah's Feline Friday Linky Party!

Wink wink! It is nice to have help when you are making a quilt, isn't it?

Love Pippi on top of the quilt rack. Too cute!

Christine Carey said...

My cat Lucky Lou likes to "help" when I'm quilting too. Unfortunately just lying on it is not that helpful!

Needled Mom said...

The hexie quilt is gorgeous and the pets are wonderful too.

Snoodles said...

What beautiful furry kids you have and spectacular quilts too!

I truly think some of your photos would help create some super fun greeting cards. I hope you'll consider pursuing it.

LOL my dog likes to interfere with my quilts too, he watches me sew and every time without fail he lays on the quilt when I'm basting it on the floor :)

Wonderful group of helpers, whether pulling scraps, piecing, basting, or just holding it all down.

My Mama kitty liked my quilt rack too, until the night she jumped up and everything slid right off onto the floor! It took her awhile to get brave enough to jump up & sit there again! Lovely pictures.
