    Finally found a use for my cats. (2). Was sandwiching my quilt yesterday. On the floors no less. While crawling around pulling here and there, cats walked in. One cat down just on one corner. Idea!!! Sat the other cat on another corner. They just sat there. Smoothing the quilt, batting and backing went much faster. Don't know why I have not used weights of some type in the past. Now the question is: Do I get weights, or use the cats.

    Love it. My 15-pounder would do the trick.

    For one second there I thought you were going to say you used them for batting. :lol:

    LOL

    mine insists on making sure the quilt is comfortable - even when it's just the quilt top on the floor so I can take a picture of it.

    And they're probably thinking "It took her long enough to put our quilt on the floor for us."

    It isn't a quilt until it's been slept on by a cat!!!

    I just wish mine would stop examining the batting when I have it 'relaxing' on the spare bed. Those claws can pick up a lot of batting during the removal process!!
