    I am trying to sew the binding down on the back, it is very
    difficult with my QI getting in the middle of everything for a nap!!! Does anyone else have this problem??

    I think he likes this one!!!! I need to finish it though.

    I like how the white appears to radiate light from the cross. Very inspirational and beautiful.

    Oh your WIP is fabulous. Yes, I have the same issues with my QI, although I've at least got her to sit on my lap, under the quilt when I'm trying to bind it (that's an improvement). tee hee

    If he lays under it, he attacks every movement on top, much prefer him where he is. He just loves getting in the middle and covered up by quilts!! Just look at my avatar:)

    Your quilt will be beautiful if you can ever get your "helper" to let you finish!

    I love your quilt. I bought some old blocks from a garage sale and while working with them I started sneezing, my nose and eyes started itching, and I realized that several had cat hair on them. The worst ones I had to put in a plastic bag and throw away but some heavy doses of Benedryl got me through the rest. Now I just take it before I'm going to work on them. I can't wait to the quilt done so that I can wash it. To all cat lovers I apologize but I just can't imagine letting a cat on my quilts. BAD allergies.

    My cats love quilts and especially flannel ones.
    I have to lock them out of the sewing room or it is a disaster waiting to happen.
    One in particular (my avatar) likes to snag my fabrics and drag them around the house. They become his lovey's.

    He doesn't normally interfer with quilting. Sometimes he just decides that he wants a perticular one and wont leave it alone, even when it is being sewed, he pops up from in back of the machine, doesn't try to get the needle though. Guess he needs another one to himself, he has already claimed at least two. And he likes to eat the batting, but only the cotton, have to keep it put up so he can't get into it. What would we do without their love:~)??!!??

    I only have one that likes to be a pest, I have a large carrier I have put him in when he gets in the way. I tell him if he don't leave me alone I will put him in the cage, finally he is understanding what I'm saying and he goes off. I don't get a lot of sewing time and I want to get going on whatever I'm working on. He is 3 going on 4.

    I have six quilt inspectors, and every once in a while, one of them jumps directly in the middle of the hoop when I am hand quilting. I cuddle them for a couple minutes and take them over to the bed or couch and see if they will stay.

    I used to have that problem, wish I still did. Hubby says no more kitties, we have had to put two of them to sleep and he just can't deal with that anymore. We become way too attached. Mine used to sit and swat at the thread as I would sew or swat at the needle.

    I have a kitty like him, about 3 years old. Gets in the middle of everything. He isn't the only one, I have another who thinks his place is to sit on the ironing board when I'm working on blocks. Crazy cats. Love them though!!
    I love your WIP---beautiful!!

    Don't sweat the small stuff with your gorgeous QI, I just had to put one of mine to sleep a few weeks ago and would give anything to have him back wanting to help me! Beautiful quilt also!

    That is a beautiful quilt. And the quilt inspector has inspected it and it passes that test.

    So sorry for your loss, I have had to do that before, it doesn't get any easier. I have a yorkie who is 14, not looking forward to that moment.
    I think I will make a couple more of the quilt, it really isn't all that hard to make, it is just alot of cutting- postage stamp blocks.

    Its funny, sometimes he totally ignores a quilt and others I can't keep him off of it, even in the very beginning, crazy cat.

    Thanks everyone, so glad you like my quilt. I am thinking of making several more. I love the designer, have done serveral of her quilts. Although this is the first pattern I have ever purchased. check it out at : [www.lucyfazely.com]

    This is so beautiful, sometimes I think working with symbols can be difficult but you have really pulled this one off! Well done!
