    I have two quilt huggers too. They like to find the fabric left on the bed and add new fibre to the mix or wrinkles. I would not trade them for the world. They have been with me longer than two husbands.

Now the question is: Do I get weights, or use the cats.
    :lol: that's funny!

    No use in finding/buying weights when you already have two. LOL I've used my dog Roxie and some phone books to help keep the corners down

    My 25 pound Chicca loves to help with all parts of the quilting. Only, she does not stay put in one section...she moves to all sections and rolls around until she finds the perfect spot and it is really hard to make her move! LOL.

    I think cats put down roots when they don't want to be moved.

    That's great! Mine would never settle for an edge though. They want to be in the center of the quilt.
