    Something about this ALWAYS brings the quilt police!

    Whenever I lay out a quilt, they all come running. What's up with this?
    Just finished my Diamond quilt using Kaffe Fasset fabrics. Trying to decide what to use for backing. This is for our CA King. Yes, it's big! I love sewing diamonds!
    Thanks for looking.

    Any time I put something on the floor my dog thought it was for him.

    Oooh...I love the fabric colors and I think your quilt police team approves as well. Yes, no matter where the "police" have their secret HGs , they seem to know when they have to show up. Lol
    your quilt is beautiful.

    Those aren't quilt police, those are inspectors. BIG difference!! Quilt police are the ones who tell you there is only one right way to do something. They are the ones that say crazy things like machine quilting isn't real quilting, points should always line up, you should never use a sheet for backing, etc. etc. etc. Inspectors don't say anything, they just check things out.

    Is that a Bernese Mountain Dog puppy in the 2nd pic??

    No, Australian Sheppard. She "hurds" all the shitzu's (3). She watches everything they do. Cuts them off if they run too fast past her.

    Thanks for the clarification. They are definitely inspecting!

    Wonderful use of Kaffee! Love your quilt top. My fuzzy one always wants first rights of napping on any finished quilt top or finished quilt. I have to wait till I put him out to layout a quilt , or ...yup its like a calling to have to lay smack in the middle.

    My last set of inspectors liked to "help" with the sandwiching - sitting on the batting. One of the current set likes to rip out any visible batting. That doesn't help when the quilt still needs borders.

    Beautiful quilt!! My beagle "Libby" and the lab "Mia" thought the quilt was for their comfort while I was quilting it (hand quilting) I often had to shove them off to turn the quilt ....

    Your quilt is really pretty!!

    That is utterly gorgeous. You did Kaffe Fassett proud!
    People who start projects and never finish them are cooler
    than people who never start projects at all.

    Love the quilt. Beautiful work. As I'm reading I have a yorkie and a very pregnant rat terrier on my left side and a Siamese cat on my legs, they have to "help" do everything!

    It's not so bad if they get on it when it is sewn together! Mine loves to do it before that and rearrange block for me - not sure if that is an inspector or police!
