No, I'm not doing the rational thing and making a quilt to use while I cat-nap. I'm making a quilt for the cat to use while he cat-naps. I told you it was a ridiculous project. You may sanely ask, "Why in the world does a cat need a quilt? A cat will use any darn quilt he wants." You're right; Charley does. That is the problem. You see this black cat on my white quilt? Do I really need to explain further?
Okay, I suppose I do. It can't possibly make sense yet (if it ever will). See what black cat fur looks like on a white quilt? Since Charley naps on my bed daily, it doesn't take long before his favorite spot looks gray. I need to buy stock in the lint roller company!
Then a free pattern for the quilt shown below came in the mail from a quilting magazine trying to entice me to subscribe to their magazine. (It worked by the way. I now subscribe to McCall's Quilting.)
I've begun cutting the squares needed for the quilt as I cut fabric for some other projects. I still have a ways to go. I'll need 64 squares to make the quilt 40" X 40". The finished block is supposed to be 5" square.
