    You did a great job on that quilt and know you find comfort in having it with you everynight. The plaids made up so pretty.
    And Leopold looks like he is really enjoying it too. It is nice he came along to keep you company. He looks to be a very loving cat!
    Keep on quilting...you do good work.

    I believe you are right! Our angels definatly place much needed help with us for our toughest times. That kitty IS with you for a reason and came into your life at that time to be with you. Thank you for sharing!

    Sorry for your loss. You've made a beautiful quilt (are you SURE it's your first? ) and created a wonderful tribute.

    And isn't it amazing how such a small animal manages to position themselves to occupy the biggest amount of space?
    Love the quilt, and Leopold, too. :thumbup:

    Sorry to hear of your loss. I know from experience how hard it is. There are always angels among us, and I'm glad Leopold is there for you. I'm still working on the quilts from my husband's shirts. Life keeps getting in the way.

    What a great quilt! I'm sorry to hear of your loss, but the quilt will keep the memories close to you. Your quilt inspector is darling and I'm sure is a wonderful companion!

    That is beautiful and sorry for your loss! Leopold must be my cats brother!

    So I embarked on making my first quilt ever. It was made with blood, sweat and tears and although not perfect "Larry' is with me when I sleep at night.

    In case you're wondering, that's Leopold on the bed. An angel dropped him off at our doorstep about three months before Larry died. He has helped me though so much sadness and has given me back happiness as well.

    Hope you all like.

    Your quilt is beautiful...the story behind it is sad and beautiful at the same time.
