The Ugly Quilt and the Adorable Cat

Any of you that read this blog regularly know that I have 5 cats.  I love my cats, but the BEST sleeper, by far is Captain Jack.  I was watching the Red Wings game last night and decided I really needed to finish sewing the binding down by hand.  I put the quilt on my lap when my DS decided to let Jack in the house.  He thought that the cat would go and snuggle with him.  Oh contrair!  Little did my DS know, but Jack and I do this snuggle by the quilt thing almost every night!  As soon as he saw the quilt, BAM, he was there helping...I mean sleeping and purring, very loudly while I sewed.  Isn't he the cutest cat you have ever seen?  (Besides Jasper, right Jeanne?)  Oh, and Mrs. G. I bet even Haines would like him!

So you can see a little of the orange thread on the blue-green flannel back.  I really like how it came out.  DD2 is bugging the heck out of me to get it finished and sent her way.  I plan to sew on the label tonight as well as the label on the U of M one (and *no* it is still not finished, w/o the label).
You can see a bit of the quilting and the colors (ugh) in this photo too (of course you have to get by Mr. Adorable to do so).  I will try to get some pictures of it in all it's quilty goodness soon.
Have a good evening!!

All I can see is that kitty, like a baby. Too adorable for words. I am making embarrassing lovey faces at your dosing cat.

Oh, Jack! He's been camera shy for awhile now, but I see he is as adorable as ever. How can you not love him? The quilt looks great, too, especially with Jack on/under it.

Jack makes me chuckle. I have one that's a super snuggler, too. I love the colors in this quilt. Beautiful.

I heart sleepy kitties! My boy snuggles under quilts that I am binding/quilting/appliqueing on. (It is funny when it happens to be a doll quilt & I move it so that he is no longer covered - I get a "look.")
