I tried......!!!!!

Honestly I did! I was determined to get the quilt machine quilted yesterday. sigh! My little terror on four (4) paws wouldn't let me. Midnight decided that he was going to make himself comfortable, right next to me!



I tried continuing to work, but he made it difficult to move the quilt. If that wasn't enough, he was watching the needle intensely. I became afraid that he might want to try to catch it. He's still a kitten and so playful. He's a riot to watch, especially when he tries to catch flying insects.



I also realized that I had made a mistake with the direction of the feathers. On the bottom border from the center onward the feathers go in different directions. I was going to take it apart and redo it, but decided against it. I'll do the top border the same way so it will look "normal".

I'm hoping that the quilt will be done today. Midnight is outside exploring nature, so that gives me some time to get to work! lol

Have a great day every one!

Not a mistake, just character. I looks like a lovely quilt. Hope you get it finished today.

Midnight was forcing you to take a break. Don't overdo it, Carole - take care of yourself.

Your quilt is beautiful and I can't wait to see it all quilted.

Sometimes our little helpers can be a more of a hinderance . . . but gosh they are cute *s*

I think Midnight was telling you that he needed attention and it was time to stop quilting. VBG I love the fabrics in that quilt and can't wait to see it finished.

Supervising--- she was supervising *s*--- Great idea about doing the top the same way...It will turn the quilting into an "original". I can't wait to see the finished product.

My cats do that too. Usually if I get up and leave the room for a bit, they get bored and leave too--then I sneak back in! LOL! (Same thing happens when I take a bath. What's so fascinating that the cats want to watch?! LOL!)

These pet certainly know what to do to get attention :)) Jenny like to put the squeaky toy on my lap everytime I sit at the computer!!

How frustrating but clever of you to just do the top border the same way, I´m sure it will look lovely.

Midnight looks a bit like my two kitties. Trajan used to go after flying insects, too--and actually caught one, once! He made a spectacular leap straight up in the air, and that fly was sooo dead!

Wendy said...

My cat does that sometimes for attention, she will sit right where it's the most inconvenient. Love your feathers. Are you doing that free hand, will you teach me????

Karen said...

Midnight is beautiful and so is your quilt. I forgot about cats watching while you take a bath, I only take showers. Cats are just so darn cute.

It's almost like having another child isn't it? They are so cute though you forgive them for anything. :)

He is a little cutie -- and how can you stay mad when he just looks like he was trying to help?? Hope you get time to finish today!

swooze said...

Yes I have a helper that must be related to your helper! Good job on finding a creative solution rather than picking out!

Nicole said...

I love your beautiful Robin Pandolph fabrics! Your quilt is going to be gorgeous when you finish the quilting.
