We’ve got a new quilt hanging around the house.
Four or five years ago, I bought a fq bundle of Robert Kaufman’s Dr. Seuss fabric from a little quilt shop in Coeur d’Alene, ID, called Bear Paw Quilting (I distinctly remember this because I was traveling for work and somehow convinced my boss to let me stop at a fabric shop.) The fabric sat around a while before I made a quilt from it for my nephew. Then, it sat around a while longer.
I put the scrap pieces together into another top which sat, yes – even longer, in my WIP pile until my little one discovered it and repeatedly exclaimed “Cat! Cat! Cat!”
I figured it was time for it to get finished and into rotation.
If my son said things besides cat, he’d probably say, “It’s about time, lady.”
Sharing this Friday finish with everyone else at crazymomquilts.
(Also, for the record, I suppose my son DOES say things other than cat… Things like “tortilla” and “backhoe” and “bicycle.” We’re still working on a clear “mama,” but that’s another story.)
