Tommy was ecstatic to learn about the Pets on Quilts Show 2014. (He read about it on Cat Patches, one of the blogs he reads.) He had planned to be the guest blogger for today's post and had already compiled his Top 100 favorite photos of himself. That's when I stepped in. The photo above shows a nice mix of cat and quilt.
And this is the quilt before Tommy coated it with "Catguard," a special protective layer of white fur that repels stains and people.

Tommy prefers a photo with more cat and less quilt.

He also thinks that there may be too much emphasis placed on finished quilts, because he feels some of his best work features quilts he helps to make.

His brother, Jimmy, was a big fan of the fabric stash.

And even helped with fabric selection. Jimmy especially excelled at rearranging quilt blocks laid out on the floor.

Meanwhile, over at the Rainbow Scrappy Challenge, bright green is the new color for August. Tommy said that I already have enough green kittens and that I should pull these four out of the green collection and pretend they are a new litter. Meanwhile, if you would like to see more pets on quilts, go here.

  15. Oh my! You are lucky to have such wonderful consultants! My cat Moxie finds quilting activities to be beneath her dignity.

  30. Your quilt is beautiful - even if it does have catguard on it. I will have to borrow that term for my fuzzy quilts.
