I took up quilting a couple of months ago, thanks to two of my sisters who had a great influence on me! I made a lap quilt, but my cat seemed to like it so much that I could never use it because he was always lying on it. So I made him his very own quilt. Buddy seems to like this quilt just as much as the lap quilt, so now we're both happy. And I can just throw this in the wash whenever I need to, and it protects the couch from his fur. I love the bright green and turquoise with the black and white. And I especially love the dancing kitties along the border!
