I love the colors and fabrics in this quilt and cannot wait to see how they look once it is quilted. I am so excited to see this all together. I have decided on the fabric to use for the binding, which is usually a hard decision for me, but this time it came easy.
So now all I have to do is get busy stitching... In the meantime, I thought I would share with you a few pictures of my sewing helpers....
This is Apollo... the snuggler.
It is all he cares about. He is a very sweet and gentle cat and I love snuggling with him.
This is Artemis...he is a little crazy. Not much of a cuddler, but is very curious, into everything, loves to eat plastic (plastic bags, ziplocks, the plastic warning tags on electric cords), and is always in the middle of my sewing.
*** I promise I do not to let this crazy cat eat plastic. We cannot leave any out anywhere or he will find it in the middle of the night. We also have to remove the warning labels that are wrapped around electrical cords so he doesn't try to chew them off.***
He went through a phase where he would chew holes in my husband's undershirts. My husband would set out his undershirt with his clothes for the next day and Artemis would grab it in the middle of the night, drag it downstairs and chew little holes in it. Needless to say, my husband doesn't set out his undershirts anymore.
This is a picture of him as a kitten. As you can see, he has always been crazy.
I hope everyone has a great weekend celebrating Father's Day. Hopefully amongst all the celebrating, I will make some progress on this quilt. I am ready to have this bad boy finished! There are other projects on my list calling my name, but I must resist!
