    Talking Quilt Testers and Inspectors

    Ladies, do you employ the services of a quilt tester and inspector to make sure your seams are 1/4 inch and that your quilt is going to be warm enough to use? I do.. the proof is in the pictures!

    What a cute kitty. My inspectors are basset hounds and their legs are to short to get up and inspect. They just keep me company.

    Nope, the only room in my house that my cat won't go into is my sewing room. It's wierd, she has no problem going every place else. Even if we've done the battle and I won that a certain chair or bed or place isn't allowed; after a few months, she'll try again and act like she was never told. My little american eskimo will lie on the floor as close to my chair but out of the way of it's rolling wheels to me that she can get. Now if I have fabric on the sofa or my bed well then it's up for grabs so I know where not to go. My cat will even go inside the dryer and sleep on the clothes if I leave the door open. For some reason she knows my sewing room isn't worth the battle.

    Mine are poodles, but they can jump high enough to jump the fence. They each have several blankies, so they usually leave the ones alone that are up high.

    Now I know what my problem is. I need one of those to keep my on my toes. I don't find out my seams aren't right until the blocks don't fit together. If he told me when I make the mistake it would save a lot of unsewing.

    Cute quilt testers. I have a pom that likes to select the fabric and thread. She grabs her favorites and runs as fast as she can to her toy box!

    I LOVE how he sleeps with his paws over his eyes to block the light; I do that, too!

    My kitty just has to be where I want to be. Like laying on the cutting board all stetched out, on the ironing board smelling the iron (?), on the fabric at the sewing machine.

    I think the inspectors are cute.
    To make lots of quilts, is to have lots of scraps, and I do, and I do.

    Mine, too, but he sometimes sits on my feet and against the machine pedal. He does inspect anything that reaches the floor, however, and gives me his unconditional support.
