Pets On Quilts Show 2014

It's that time of year again...Lilypad Quilting is holding the annual Pets On Quilt Show. This is always a fun event and I am going to enter into the Cat category, i.e. cats on quilts.


Currently we are having two cats in the house, our cat, Abby and my daughter's cat, Pixie.

This is Abby

What is it about cats that they appear out of nowhere when you are trying to photograph a quilt. In the first shot I was trying to photograph the quilt draped over a chair and she went onto the chair looking out from underneath...this was getting very funny as she was just not going to move at all. Needless to say it took a very long time to get a shot of the quilt without the cat.

And here is a shot of my daughter's cat, Pixie

 A particularly great photograph that I managed to get of her posing


Yep, Pixie also has claimed the quilts that are lying around the house. I find this extraordinary how cats just have this incredible thing about quilts...almost claiming every quilt like as if to say...thanks for making another one just for me to sleep on!

Join the fun and head over to Lilypad Quilting to have a look at the gorgeous entries. I promise this will keep you going for at least a week, if not longer. Just had a read: the party will go for 10 days this year and there will be six viewers' choice awards...and then there are prizes via random drawing.
I am heading over...

Until next time

  1. I have a lot of face shots like that, they will be in the perfect pose until they see the camera and then they stick their face in the lens! LOL
