Just because Buddy is the elephant in the room, we shouldn't forget about Molly Kitten. And yes, we did have the discussion about whether being four years old qualifies as "kitten" but Molly had me look up her adoption papers and it does say that I adopted a kitten. Molly says she is upholding her end of the bargain and then itemized many ways in which I have violated the agreement such as taking her across state lines without authorization. So nevermind.
I was thinking that maybe it was time to layer this quilt and finish it. But yikes, it looks huge. What was I thinking. First, I will rummage around in my "backing" fabrics and see what speaks to me.
