Toby on Corner

Wow, thanks for all the kind comments!

The quilt really isn't as big as that picture made it look, here's a picture of Toby laying next to another of my corner jogs, for scale.

You get the impression of size, I think, because there's so many of the little nine patch blocks - but they're only 6 inches square. The quilter's eye is fooled because you want to make the blocks 12 inches square, which really WOULD make this a huge top. As it is, it's 96 x 120, which is what I computed for a queen size spread with a pillow tuck at the top.

96 x 120 is still pretty big but knowing that the blocks are 6 inch finished explains it. I guess I was thinking they were at least 10 or 12 inches.

Toby looks like he is saying, "Don't you dare touch my quilt!"

I was trying to hand quilt yesterday and Lily had to sit in my lap UNDER the quilt. Now she's on my lap as I sit at the computer - much easier to manage.

Anyway, sweet boy, fun quilt. As far as I'm concerned 96 x 120 is HUGE. I hate working that large.

I'd actually considered your idea of randomly stuffing the cats in their carriers and taking them out for a drive, but didn't know if that would just make them increasingly neurotic... I need this to get easier, not harder.
