    Literally, bats and quilts

    A local visitor had the good taste to choose my bunny quilt to rest on while trying to figure out how in the world it got itself into my bedroom. I'd like to know too! Spent an hour dodging me and DH until it was caught in a bucket with a quilting magazine for a cover and put outside.

    Always finding new ways to use quilting tools!

    It's the Quilting Police doing undercover work! However, she could not find anything wrong with the bunny quilt! It's gorgeous!!

    OMG!! I would absolutely freak! It did have good taste to slumber on your cute quilt though.

    Yikes too! But so glad you were able to catch it and put it back outside without harming it!

    Oh that's scary. Be careful, it could be ill and have rabies. One can't tell if the bat has bitten or not. like a mosquito bite. So watch out.

    Yes, the bat had good taste in quilts.
    I had one get caught in the lining of my jacket once. It was unclear which of us was more alarmed.

    I vote for "Yikes", but the bat has good taste. I love your Bunny quilt.

    Lovely quilt! I like bats...from a distance...but not in my house! I lose all dignity and my reasoning goes in full panic mode. Congrats to you for getting it out without hurting yourself or it.

    It was just hanging out!
    A quilt is like a good life. It's full of mistakes, but, in the end, it looks pretty good.

    Oh my goodness, such a horrible little creature. We get them once in awhile too and am so scared of them. Great quilt.
